Lochcarron of Scotland sponsors EmpowerMe female empowerment workshop
David Riddell welcomes women from the Scottish Borders
The workshop invites female entrepreneurs to identify ways they are disempowered and take the step to – step back into their power.
When participants were asked ‘what strategies will you employ to increase your power and influence from today?
- Not taking the seat at the back all the time,. Speaking up rather than accepting unrealistic demands and insulting day rates!
- Stop being so hard on myself by telling my inner critic to be more positive or shut up. Accept who I am, what I am, how I look – and work with that in a positive way.
- That my ideas of power and being powerful are not based on earning more, gaining recognition or rising to prominence but about using my personal power to make my own choices, and that those choices may be very different from other people’s but that doesn’t make them wrong.
