This week we’re celebrating the Woman Who Achieves Award Winners.

Congratulations Hollie Whittles of FraggleWorks Ltd and Winner of the Woman Who Achieves for through Networking Award, sponsored by Ladies First Professional Development, who also judged this category.

The Woman Who Achieves Awards took place on Friday 2nd October. As we weren’t able to hold a face to face event this year, we took the Awards online.

Congratulations and thank you to all the Winners and Finalists for your support and making this event into an amazing interactive online Awards event.

Fraggleworks is a Midlands based training company founded by Hollie Whittles in 2011. It works with small business owners and start-ups across the Midlands region to provide training in all aspects of running a business.


It has a particular specialism in supporting entrepreneurs with their online business strategy and offers one-to-one mentoring on a range of aspects from web through to digital marketing and social media.


Hollie’s ultimate goal is to inspire and empower business owners to feel confident and knowledgeable about growing their business through strategic planning and marketing.

What the Judges said:

A good entry and the judges were very impressed how Hollie originally networked to grow her own business through partnerships and relationships. She has gone on to enhance her experience of networking through various network groups and plugged a gap where other groups have stopped operating using digital marketing rather than traditional face to face, placing her in an ideal position for COVID.

“I am so honoured to receive this award for WomanWho Achieves through Networking. I love to bring people together and provide opportunities through great events where people can learn and get to know each other better. Thank you so much and congratulations to all of the other finalists.  I wore some new purple shoes for the awards, so now they are my lucky shoes!”

“I am honoured to have been shortlisted as a finalist in the networking category. I am delighted to be connected with many inspirational people across the world who have become professional contacts and friends. It is through networking that I created my Amazon best selling book ‘What They Didn’t Teach Me on My PGCE’ – a collection of over 200 narratives written by teachers for teachers. I look forward to making many more connections through the WomenWho network.”
