A note from Milly Dent, our SFE YP Deputy Chair for Edinburgh:

The Young Banker of the Year Competition is a truly inspiring and exciting event; it is an opportunity to hear from and support like minded future leaders of the industry with a passion to make positive change.

Having been a Semi Finalist for this award in 2018, I have experienced the hours of hard work, preparation and nerves that come with this competition. I have also felt first hand the support of other Young Professionals and the difference it can make having a strong network behind you. Myself, and the committee, really encourage you to come along and support the finalists. It’s also a great opportunity to network and find out more about the competition ahead of applications opening for 2021.
