Exclusive Business & Northern Insight – November lunch event

Dr Bill Scott OBE – CEO Wilton Engineering 

The Exclusive business lunch event speakers are all given a very basic guideline for their presentations, to simply tell their story. The interpretation of this vary from speaker to speaker and that is part of what makes it so interesting, everyone of us has our own story to tell.

Today’s speaker Dr Bill Scott OBE, CEO of Wilton Engineering told his own story in his own way and held the room captivated.

After taking the risk in 1994 to form a company with a business partner and a loan secured against the family home, Bill Scott has developed Wilton Engineering into a hugely successful, award winning,  multi million pound business.

Bill was honest and frank in his account of the growth of the company and the challenges faced during several recessions, his entrepreneurial flair has steered the fortunes of Wilton Engineering through the bad times. Brave decisions were taken that ultimately secured the future of the business and the continued success of the company.

In telling his story to the room Bill Scott revealed a very shrewd business mind but also a real respect for the people who work for him and alongside him, his “C” word is collaboration, working collaboratively has undoubtedly been a key factor in the on-going growth and success of the business.

Happy with only four hours sleep a night, Bill is energetic and driven, he uses his energy wisely and alongside his role in Wilton Engineering finds time to act as a business mentor for start ups, supports a variety of charities and is committed to the development of the region through his work as a patron of the Middlesbrough and Teesside Philanthropic Foundation.

Bills hard work was recognised with the award of an OBE in the New Years Honours 2019.

An engaging and entertaining speaker, Bill presented a swift snapshot of his business life and career story but it was enthralling and inspiring and over too soon.
