Your Invitation: a free networking event and opportunity to meet fellow women starting and running a business
Join us at the September Women Into Business gathering:
We hope you can join us for the next Women into Business event to hear from our key speaker and share learnings with other women starting a business.
Taking place at Elevator's Centre for Entrepreneurship in Bridge of Don we welcome you to this great networking opportunity with other women who have recently started a business, or who are thinking of starting one.
This event is the perfect opportunity to share learnings and contacts with people in the same boat as you.
Margaret Waldron believes it’s never too late to start afresh. Owning her own business had never been her end goal: The Law Practice was born after an unexpected, yet natural, opportunity after a diverse career history.
After studying languages at University, Margaret dabbled in banking, aced her secretarial studies and learned a lot as a personal assistant then merged family and work by qualifying as a playgroup supervisor. In her late thirties, she challenged herself with a degree and, by the time she turned 43, was a qualified solicitor.
In 2005 (at age 50), she became an ‘unexpected entrepreneur’ and launched The Law Practice. Now, approaching its eleventh anniversary, the business has flourished: it boasts a hardworking, handpicked team, a cosy high-street premises and a sister company, The Law Practice Leasing.
Margaret sees her company as different from ‘run of the mill’ solicitors firms, fusing the team’s trusted, traditional values with a fresh, energetic approach. There is real excitement for clients’ successes, a long-established tradition of ‘Cake Friday’ and a strictly optional attitude to stuffy suits.
Margaret will share her business background, peppered with personal essentials too, in a light-hearted yet sincere manner. She will explain how networking got her to where she is today, convince you of the importance of ‘gut-feel’ and share with you the pure joy of working with people and celebrating their success.
