Women Unite

RUSK & RUSK have had an action-packed couple of weeks teaming up with some Britain’s most inspirational women to discuss the highs and lows of being a leader in their respective industry and offering some words of wisdom to others.

This kicked off with the RBS 100 Women event on Thursday 6th September which took place at the Barras Art and Design Centre (BAaD) in Glasgow’s east end and was attended by a many of Scotland’s inspirational, aspiring women in business.

Co-founder of restaurant, design and lifestyle group RUSK & RUSK, Louise Rusk was honoured to speak at the event, chaired by journalist and blogger Susie Cormack Bruce, to discuss the idea of ‘imposter syndrome’ – the feeling that you don’t belong in the category of ‘businessperson’. The panel discussed their own ways of overcoming this by trusting their instincts, staying true to themselves and pushing back against naysayers.

This topic continued as RUSK & RUSK hosted it’s latest Bubbles & Brunch event on Friday 14th September where guest of honour Marie Macklin shared her very honest account of how she used her authenticity, heart and determination to become a success in business along with her future global expansion plans for her business, HALO Urban Regeneration Company.

Hosted by Louise Rusk and Global Scotland’s Managing Director Tracey McNellan, the event brought together a community of thinkers and leaders, allowing them to share ideas, connect and discuss all things business in a relaxed atmosphere.

We received some fantastic feedback on this Bubbles & Brunch event with Marie herself commenting it is ‘truly a unique way to network with the business community’.
