After five years in the role as GrowBiz Peer Learning and Mentoring Co-ordinator, Joyce McQuilken is retiring this week.
In 2008, Joyce set up her own business, with support from GrowBiz. She was a member of the initial GrowBiz support group before successfully bidding for the contract as Peer Support Co-ordinator. She has had a lifelong enthusiasm for enabling people to make connections and discover and use their talents - which made her a perfect fit for GrowBiz.
Joyce has played a huge part in putting together and developing the GrowBiz Peer Support and Learning programme over the years, shaping it to make it what it is today.
In 2016, she won a much deserved Highly Commended Award for Enterprise Mentoring Support at the Scottish Mentoring Network Awards.
Joyce's contribution to GrowBiz over the years cannot be underestimated, and she will be hugely missed, but try as we might, we could not persuade her to stay!
We are sure that you will join us in wishing Joyce a long, and happy retirement.
