Sarah Flowers: Sales Director at swcomms
Biggest professional achievement to date
swcomms has won a series of industry awards in recent years and I was so proud of the teams that sold and delivered the solutions that led to those wins. Although becoming a director was a personal achievement, these examples of success for my team illustrated our success as a whole business.
Advice for a young woman stepping into the world from school, college or university
Try and get work experience in the job you want. Failing that…be enthusiastic, dress appropriately and smile! Employers want to see dedication, professionalism and a willing attitude. These three elements and a happy face will be greatly sought after.

100 Most Influential Women 2018
Grow Exeter Magazine launched the ‘100 Most Influential Women 2018’ in Exeter and the region in December 2017 and we received around 500 nominations for influential women from all walks of life; our panel was spoilt for choice and hard-pressed to select only 100 from the talented nominees that they viewed. The Launch of the ‘100 Most Influential Women’ awards in 2018 has perhaps even more value than in any other year as it was just 100 years ago that the first woman was granted the right to vote in the UK.
Women have truly shown that they can shine in any environment, whether that be in the boardroom, teaching our children, climbing mountains, navigating uncharted waters, they can do anything that they set their mind to and we can’t wait to celebrate our own talented 100.
Honouring women in our March edition of Grow Exeter fell in line with International Women’s Day on the 8th March and the 100 finalists have each been featured in this special edition. To see the 100 finalists individually featured, please grab a copy of our March edition by ordering through the link below. We will be publishing each woman online throughout March and April so keep an eye on our Facebook page or website for their stories.
A huge congratulations to everyone nominated and to the #100WomenExeter, you are all amazing!
