Our founder, Debi Weir, was announced as Moray Business Woman of the year 2021 at Moray Business Women’s online Awards Ceremony on 16th December!
We are really pleased that our Founder and Development Manager, Debi Weir has been crowned Moray Business Women’s – Business Woman of the Year for 2021! An accolade that was announced at their recently re-organised event on 16th December. The group took their awards ceremony online after two unsuccessful attempts to deliver it face to face. It was originally planned as a lavish evening at the Seafield Arms in Cullen which was cancelled at the last minute due to Storm Arwen. It was then re-arranged as a Christmas
Event with Decora in Elgin, which was sadly cancelled due to COVID-19 suggested restrictions. The group eventually made it happen, online with a little sparkle!
Debi was a finalist in the category with Marie Smith – The Artisan Bothy and Alison Read – Alison Read Digital. The category of Business Woman of the year recognises the qualities of a successful woman in a profession or leading a business to make a significant individual contribution to deliver superior performance.
Debi said ‘I am just delighted to have won the award, although a bit shocked as the competition was pretty strong!. It makes all the hard work really worth it, its recognition for all the effort that has gone into making a success out of a new business throughout a pandemic and this award is for the team and all their hard work!’
Debi has lived in Moray since 2016 and set up charity Moray School Bank in 2017 which led to founding R-evolution for Good in 2020, a community owned business and charity offering training and development to businesses across Scotland. Despite the challenges of a global pandemic and an economic downturn the business is thriving and has gone from strength to strength.
R-evolution for Good and Debi were also finalist’s in the category ‘Best New Business’ which was won by Laura Thomson of ST Law
