A “well kennt” Aberdeen and Moray personality has been recognised as one of the most inspirational businesswomen in Scotland.
Career management coach Rosie O’Hara has been named as one of ten Women of Inspiration in Scotland in The Association of Scottish Businesswomen (ASB) Honours List 2015.
The list gives recognition to women who are inspirational role models and to celebrate all that they do for others in the business world in Scotland.
Rosie said: I’m delighted and honoured to be included in this list and at that same asked ‘Is this really true?’ I think at 62 I might well be the oldest, so for me it’s even more thrilling.”
Rosie is the farthest north in the list, alongside Aberdeen Engineering Solutions’ Elaine Duthie and Lucy Tait from RPS, also in Aberdeen.
Those who nominated Rosie did so for her coaching and career management expertise that stems from 35 years of business experience in the UK and Germany.
Starting out in the workplace at a time when women were expected to return to work after having their first child, Rosie did that and started to work from home – working first as a translator and later running an artisan bakery with the father of her children.
She is now the published author of four books, with “a few more” on the way.
Rosie said: “I have experienced much in life on a personal level that was both good and bad. I choose to concentrate on the good and not let life and its critics get in the way.”
Together with her business acumen and experience, Rosie uses a tried and tested methodology known as Words that Change Minds (The LAB Profile®) that helps clients understand how their language and that of others holds them back and how they can move forwards.
