The Woman Who…Awards would not take place without the fantastic support of our Sponsors. We are delighted to feature Twycross Zoo.
Twycross Zoo is an awarding-winning conservation charity that cares for over 150 rare species. It’s the only place in the UK to see all types of great ape (gorilla, orangutan, chimpanzee and bonobo) plus a wide collection of penguins, elephants, giraffes and much more. The Zoo is undergoing an ambitious £55million Masterplan development and is changing every year – and is fully dependant on public support. Visit us soon! You can obtain tickets to visit Twycross Zoo here.
Sharon Redrobe OBE, Twycross Zoo CEO, who was a Keynote Speaker at last year’s Woman Who…Awards and also one of this year’s Judging Panel, says,
“We are proud to support the Woman Who… Awards and specifically the Rising Star in Further Education or Training Award as education is crucial to our mission at Twycross Zoo. We are dedicated to educating our visitors about the conservation work we do and the threats animals face in the wild. By sponsoring the awards, we are hoping to help celebrate the fantastic accomplishments of women in business and inspire a new generation of women achievers.”
Twycross Zoo will be exhibiting in the Business & Shopping Village prior to the Awards Lunch.
