The ‘Principally Women’ programme proposes a novel approach to achieving personal and business growth by addressing gender barriers faced by female business leaders. The programme is tailored to the needs of senior women business leaders in growth companies (and social enterprises) and seeks to identify women principals at a point where life stage, opportunity and ambition are aligned but specific skills, confidence, knowledge or support may be lacking.
As part of the eligibility criteria the businesses must have growth potential and as a guide should have £400k turnover per year minimum and forecasting £1M in sales growth over the following 3-5 years.
Principally Women will provide a blended programme of cohort based education, self learning and 1:1 advisory support. It and provides personalised development delivered within a small group setting. The programme includes:
• Personal assessment and action planning
• Master classes – Leadership, confidence, sales and investment
• One to one mentoring/coaching
The programme involves a series of 8 workshop days and coaching over a 6-month period will be delivered by experts in their field with real experience of supporting female entrepreneurs, and on topics designed to be indispensable to a growth strategy.
It is anticipated that there will be a launch event in late January 2020 where participants will get the chance to network, meet the practitioners and advisors. The first workshop will take place on the 11th March and thereafter on the second Wednesday of each month.
Principally Women is a programme delivered by Scottish Enterprise with experts in their field. If you would like to register your interest and request further information, please get in touch with the team via firstname.lastname@example.org
