We want to know...What's Stopping You?

Back Her Business

In early 2020 we launched a new initiative called 'What's Stopping You?'.

Supported by Royal Bank of Scotland, we opened the doors to support women-led businesses across the north each by simply talking. 

As part of its initiative, Elevator is working to build a strong-female community to connect women in business. Our aim is to connect and support women across Grampian and Tayside in order to identify and remove any potential barriers which come with starting or running a business. 

Throughout the year we are running - now virtual workshops series in response to COVID-19, to help you identify the next steps for moving your business forward, these include:  

  • Developing A Growth Mindset with Carol Arnott and Mary Ballantyne, Thursday 25th March
  • Personal Branding with Karen Slupinski, Thursday 27th May
  • Navigating the entrepreneurial ecosystem/access to funding, Thursday 24th June 

Behavioural Scientist, Dr. Mairi Macleod will also be taking us through four live episodes in a new livestreaming session. All episodes can be found on our Facebook, LinkedIn & YouTube platforms. 

  • Be Like A Bonobo: Why the Future of Leadership is Female, Thursday 10th December, 1pm 
  • Queen Bees and Shrinking Violets: How Women Can Hold Each Other Back, Thursday 11th February, 1pm
