Thank you! I just cannot believe it, all I feel I’ve done is turn up, and try my best to give while I’ve been there as well as take. Laura and Mel had really inspirational stories, not to mention all of the others that will have been nominated but not shortlisted, I feel absolutely humbled and amazed that I was chosen as the winner. For me the winning really is getting to meet and spend time with all of the brilliant people, both WLA women and event speakers – I find everyone so inspirational and have come back again really motivated to try and be my best.

The energy in the room from celebrating being a woman was electric.

Nicky Rance, WLA Member of the Year.
