Gillian is one of our longest standing members of staff, having been in the business support network since 1993. Gillian loves nothing more than to receive a phone call from a client to say that they have started their business, when she has been able to assist them along the way. Running her own business with her husband, Gillian knows the ups and downs involved in running a business, and uses her expertise to give her clients the best possible start. Gillian runs workshops on Start Up Awareness and Business Planning, and is available for one to one chats over the phone or in person.
Kirsty Forrester (client) said: "I have on-going contact with my adviser, Gillian Macdonald, who answers my questions, holds my hand, and advises me on finance and tax matters which can be quite daunting. Business Gateway is a fabulous resource with nice people who are very approachable. Their workshops are engaging and an ideal way to meet people who are in the same boat as you."
Gillian was a finalist in the “Business Personality of the Year” category of the Pride of Aberdeen Awards 2017.
