Gordonian Association Annual Aberdeen Dinner 2024

Association President, Laurence McLeod, would like to invite all Gordonians and friends to the Annual Dinner of the Association which will be held in the Grand Ballroom at the Marcliffe at Pitfodels, Aberdeen on Friday 1st March 2024.

Our Main Speaker is Robert (“Bob”) Ruddiman (Class of ‘83), the third of a four-Generation Gordonian family. A lawyer by profession, he has had an auspicious law career having worked primarily in Energy in the UK and Globally. He was global Head of Energy & Natural Resources with an international law firm before moving in May 2021 to Burness Paull, where he is Head of Energy. He is recognised as a leader in his field by industry peers as evidenced by his ranking in Legal 500 and Chambers Directory. Bob is a former member of the Court and Operating Board of the University of Aberdeen, former Senior Vice-President of the Gordonian Association, current Board Member of Aberdeen Sports Village and a Governor of Robert Gordon’s College. He is an advocate of both opportunity for everyone (true diversity) and the power of practical education and training.

Tickets are £49.50 and include a three-course meal and coffee. The Gordonian Association is keen to encourage younger Gordonians to attend the dinner and as in previous years a number of tickets are being made available at a reduced price of £29.50 to Gordonians who have left Robert Gordon’s College within the past five years (Classes of 2019 to 2023).

All guests are asked to arrive for 6.30pm and to be seated by 7.15pm.
