    How Can We Help?

    Female Entrepreneurs Statistics

    Over 1,100 new business start-ups in Britain daily – only 1 in 3 of these are female entrepreneurs.

    Female led businesses are only 44% of the size of male led businesses.

    Male led businesses are 5 x more likely to scale up to £1m turnover than female SMEs.

    The effect of the OSR Employee Engagement programme has had on all the staff is truly rewarding and promising for the future. The culture change is evident and everyone is more motivated, enriching experience for everyone involved.

    I have had the opportunity to work with Olive Strachan MBE at different points in my career and in different settings.
    Olive’s training and coaching skills are superb, whatever setting she might be in.

    Larisa Halilović, Director of British Council

    Having Olive work with our business has been brilliant, her energy and commitment to staff development is exactly what I was looking for. I have already seen areas of improvement amongst teams at various levels.

    Olive has a bubbly, infectious personality that you can’t help engage with and respond positively to her.
    Olive’s natural style enables all type of delegates to interact with her training courses.

    Excellently presented. Content and pace of the training tailored to our own needs.

    I really enjoyed the course and feel a lot more comfortable and confident about going back to work and putting all I have learnt into practice.

    I really enjoyed the course. It gave me the opportunity to examine parts of my work, working environment and overall objectives that I don’t get the space to think about in my everyday work.

    I found the communication skills very useful as I have had trouble in the past expressing myself. I have learnt some useful tips which I am going to put into practice when I get back to work.

    Developing my time management skills will affect my output with customers and in achieving British Council goals.
