Meet other like-minded women, meet some of the GrowBiz team and hear from our speaker, Claire Standen from Rising Strong. Claire is a coach specialising in helping women who've left emotionally abusive relationships to rebuild their lives.
|Tue 5 Mar 2019
The network is designed to support women starting, running or growing a business in rural Perthshire or even for those who are thinking about it. It's a free event and will start with a light buffet, followed by an informal chance to meet other like-minded women, meet some of the GrowBiz team and hear from our speaker, Claire Standen from Rising Strong.
Claire is a coach specialising in helping women who've left emotionally abusive relationships to rebuild their lives. When she left her husband in 2017, it struck Claire that the resources available for women who were not in physical danger or financial difficulty were thin on the ground. In reaching out for support at a time of great emotional upheaval and vulnerability, she found a distinct lack of services tailored to her needs. So began a quest to gather the confidence, skills and mindset she needed to build a business that will ensure this is not the case for other women who leave unhappy, unstable and unfulfilling marriages and partnerships. So Rising Stong was born.
Not only is it important to provide women with resources, support and coaching at this crucial time, with the NSPCC reporting that 1 in 14 children experience emotional abuse, it is also clear that our children will benefit from a generation of women who have built up emotional literacy and self confidence. These women will model healthy and respectful relationships to the children in their care. Claire aims to build a network of empowered women who coach and support each other through the hard times and celebrate the inevitable and enormous successes in life too.
When other women see Claire survive and thrive, she hopes that this will show them that this is possible for them too.
