PET-Xi Training Ltd are sponsoring the Woman Who Achieves Inspiring and Outstanding Leader Award.

Fleur Sexton DL, Managing Director, said: “We’re delighted to be sponsoring Woman Who to help women fulfil their potential and be the best they can be.

The Woman Who awards are a fabulous way to encourage and inspire women through recognition and role models … giving women confidence to celebrate their achievements and be inspired by other women who are passionate about their business and who are making a difference in their communities.

As a winner of “Business Woman of the Year 2027/18” I have seen first hand the value of being recognised for the things I have achieved, but also the massive value of female role models, both being one and having them myself. We all need role models. It is only by contributing to this creation and cycle of female role models that we will encourage other women to go for it and believe they can do it which I assure you 100% they can!!
