Today (Thursday 17th November) GrowBiz are at the Scottish Mentoring Network National Recognition Awards. We are being represented by Jennifer Lindsay-Finan (River ParkTraining) and Merle Palmer (Your Scots Past).
We are delighted to announce that we have won the Business Project of the Year Award!
Merle and Jennifer were the perfect representatives to accept the award for us - Merle was originally a mentee, and is now one of our valued GrowBiz mentors. And Jennifer is a great supporter of and collaborator, working closely with GrowBiz. Many thanks ladies.
We are sure we will have lots more to share with you about the Awards when Jennifer and Merle have come back down to earth, but we couldn't wait to share the good news!
*** EXCITING UPDATE! ***
Since we posted the above, two more awards have been won!
Our Peer Support Co-ordinator, Joyce McQuilken has won a much deserved Highly Commended Staff Member Award. What was that you said about retiring Joyce?
We are also absolutely over the moon to announce that Merle Palmer has won a Highly Commended Mentor Award. We could not be happier about this - Merle's business journey encompasses everything that GrowBiz is about. She has gone from setting up her own business, being mentored by GrowBiz as her business progressed, and has now become a mentor herself, passing on all of the knowledge and experience which she has gathered on the way. Well done Merle, we could not be prouder of you - and thank you for all the support you give to GrowBiz.
We can feel a party coming on!
Don't forget that we are running a Mentoring Awareness Session on 29th November from 6.00 - 8.30 p.m. at Cargills Bistro, Blairgowrie - come along to find out more, whether you think you could benefit from having a mentor, or that you might like to become a mentor.
