Rebecca Hooker: MD Committed Clothing Company

Rebecca Hooker: MD Committed Clothing Company

Biggest professional achievement to date?

Launching my company on the 1st January this year.

 

Most profound, life-changing, business moment?

I guess when I started approaching people to become ambassadors for the brand and seeing the number of amazingly talented individuals that were keen to get onboard! Sometimes it’s overwhelming to think others invest in an idea you have created! One of the best feelings ever!

Advice for a young woman stepping into the world from school, college or uni?

Remember that there is no other ‘YOU’ in this world, so embrace it as opposed to compromising it to suit others. Also take time to embrace other people’s knowledge and expertise to help you and adapt it in a way that suits you.

Which book has had the greatest influence on your life?

It’s more of a poem, but it would have to be ‘The Desiderata’ by Max Ehrmann. I can remember a time in my life that I felt extremely unsettled and anxious. This poem was given to me and made me feel so peaceful and instantly grounded the uncertainty I had.

Heartfelt belief?

I truly believe that if you’re passionate about something, it really is worth making the most of that passion and if you can turn it into a career then that’s one of the most magical achievements.

‘Treat people how you would like to be treated’

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!
