On Friday 8 November, some of the lovely Purpose HR team attended the 5th Annual Business Women Scotland Awards held at 200 SVS in Glasgow. Clare Sullivan and Marina Horner accompanied our Managing Director, Lisa Thomson, to the awards which celebrate and recognise the achievements of women in business, showcasing some of the amazing women who are innovating and changing the business landscape of Scotland.
We were exceptionally proud to be shortlisted as finalists in the Established Business of the Year 2019 category.
The event was attended by guests from across Scotland and supported by The Scottish Government, Royal Bank of Scotland, Kilgraston School, Murphy Wealth, Global and Smartworks Edinburgh.
Corinne Hutton, Founder of “Finding Your Feet” charity, told her incredibly inspiring story of courage, strength and overcoming adversity.
Guest speaker Judy Murray OBE spoke about her journey in a male-dominated industry and how, as role models, women need to stand up and showcase ourselves as an example for others.
It was a great afternoon celebrating our fantastic female business community which we are so proud to be part of.
