Michelle Doherty

Meet Michelle, Business Adviser (Scotland)

Growing up in the family construction company helped Michelle lay firm foundations for a career in business.

After starting her career in the accounts department of her parents' firm, Michelle went on to manage the accounting team, before transferring her skills to the charity sector.

Whilst her family continued to build homes, Michelle helped rebuild communities, through a role at Save the Children.

She went onto work with a local regeneration agency in Glasgow - training and supporting young people to develop their entrepreneurial skills and linking them up with employment - before moving onto work in the enterprise team supporting new and existing businesses to develop their startup and growth plans.

From there, Michelle joined Team Transmit, as an integral part of our support service for Scottish startup businesses. Like all of our expert business advisers, Michelle applies her in-depth professional expertise to help aspiring entrepreneurs hone their business plans, flesh out their financial forecasts and access start up finance.

Given Michelle's commitment to regeneration and development, it is no surprise she loves upcycling in her free time. She also loves reading. DIY and spending time with her family.
