Lara McGowan

Board Member

Lara was a participant in the 2018/2019 company programme and is the event manager for the Borders Local Area Team. She believes the programme is the ultimate business experience. The programme showed her first-hand the joys, tribulations and often the shocking reality of running your own business, but also one of the most incredible benefits is what you can learn about yourself in the process.

Since leaving school, she has gone on to study for her Business with Marketing degree from the University of Edinburgh whilst also starting a community interest company called Advancing Eve.
She has a strong passion for entrepreneurialism, becoming accessible to women as well as young people.

In her free time, Lara loves exploring Edinburgh with her camera or watching Sherlock Holmes. She loves reading anything from Harvard Business Review through to Victorian crime novels.
