Maggie Craig, Chair of Children 1st

Maggie spent all her executive career in the financial services industry most recently at the Financial Conduct Authority. Having left the FCA, Maggie is now Chair of Children 1st, Scotland’s national children’s charity and chairs the Audit and Risk Committee of the Scottish Courts and Tribunal Service. She is an external examiner for the Financial Services and Regulation Skills module of the Diploma at The University of Edinburgh Law School and is an honorary Fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries. Maggie has been active on Diversity and Inclusion issues for several years with particular focus on mental health issues in part because she lives with a significant mental health condition. 


In her leisure time, Maggie reads a lot, plays the piano very badly, finds things for her retired husband to do and walks for miles with her three Labradors – one yellow, one chocolate and one black.


More speakers to be confirmed soon...
