Highland Business Award Finalists

What a start to the year it’s been for the Planit Team.

2019 marks our 5th year in business and we’ve just found out we’ve been shortlisted for the Highland Business Women Awards – Most Enterprising Business (Over 3 Years) and Team of the Year. This news comes shortly after our attendance at the Federation of Small Business Awards in Edinburgh where we were finalists for the Innovation of Product & Service award. The Planit team are really spurred-on with the recognition these awards bring and it’s given us the chance to reflect on the successes and how the business has grown over the last few years. Hard work really does pay off.

Cecilia has been actively engaged in The Highland Business Women (HBW) since founding Planit Scotland in 2014. The organisation provides really valuable collaborative opportunities and support for business women in the Highlands founded in 1995. It is no secret that Cecilia is incredibly passionate about helping people get things done, whilst echoing the HBW values of networking, sharing and inspiring.

Our grassroots business has grown from a couple of clients to a full portfolio rather rapidly and there have been some really challenging decisions along the way. A mere 3 years ago, Cecilia was working solo with a to-do-list that started to get unachievable. In order to continue delivering consistently for clients, she decided to recruit and met Katie who joined as an Account Manager and shortly after, Caitlin joined the business as Project Support. We’ve been very lucky to have a team that just gel, we bounce ideas off each other and work in a really enthusiastic manner that gets noticed. Connie is our latest recruit, a Marketing Graduate, and she shares the same work ethos. It is great to have an additional pair of hands to support with client workload and also the many events that Planit Scotland organise.

If you follow us on social media, you’ll see that the Planit Scotland team are the face to our brand and highly recognised throughout the Highlands. In simple terms, we work efficiently to help businesses get through their to-do-lists utilising our knowledge and experience in marketing, communications, events, PR and general admin. 90% of our workload comes from recommendations and referrals which is a really great position to be in .

As many of you will know, we also run a series of annual flagship events, namely Highland Adventure Fest, Highland Garden Fest and Loch Ness Knit Fest. These have attracted audiences from over 22 countries to the Highlands of Scotland and are growing year on year. Two very driven UHI event students, Chloe and Jena, have been working with us to learn about the industry. Planit Scotland are passionate about sharing our skills and ideas while providing practical hands on experience to those in the early stage of their careers.

It will be great to get together and celebrate women in business at the Highland Business Women Awards on the 15th March. Good luck to all the worthy finalists!
