Established by Scottish Business Woman of the Year, Kate Stott, BeautyBooker is a business building app to encourage customer bookings for hair, beauty and nail salon and spas within the North East area of Scotland.
Scottish entrepreneur and mother of three, Kate’s background in purchasing and recruiting for the Oil & Gas sector and later the first female global marketing role within the company, encouraged Kate’s passion to create content and promote others.
Her career also saw Kate travelling the world and living in Australia, India, Spain and Dubai. Through these experiences, Kate gained invaluable insights into different cultures and values, as well as their way of operating with local businesses.
It was during Kate’s time living in Dubai that really opened her eyes to consumerism and what the UK was missing for consumers in the digital space. In 2009, Kate spent a year experiencing what Dubai and its culture had to offer. As Dubai westernised and grew, this culture fast became a consumer driven one, which centred around providing the very best services for tourists, expats and locals, with business models that precipitated what Deliveroo and JustEat offer to the UK now.
Hair & Beauty was, and still is, a market growing exponentially and rapidly in Dubai due to the increase of expats and tourists. Even with a huge offering of Hair and Beauty professional’s, Kate could still access what she wanted with ease through various booking sites. This planted the seed that whilst this was a more convenient way to go about booking one’s beauty treatments, that there was still something missing to bring it really into the 21st century and smart-phone age. From here and whilst on maternity leave, Kate combined her knowledge and desire for an easy to use booking system and BeautyBooker app was developed.
In 2019, Kate was awarded Scottish Business Woman of the Year at the National Business Women’s Award; a national award that support and shares in the vision to raise the profile of industrious, hardworking and enterprising business women, nationally.
