Alona Kemmett : Managing Director of Aquamarine Media – 100 Most Influential Women 2018

Biggest professional achievement to date

Setting up my agency and watching it go from strength to strength over the past two and a half years. I now employ an award-winning team of fantastic people and work in a wonderful location at Exeter Quay.

Best life advice ever received

Go with your gut. If it feels wrong, it invariably is.

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

Know what you want and don’t be afraid of your dreams; nothing is impossible if you work hard and put your mind to it.

Which book has had the greatest influence on your life & why?

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, by Douglas Adams. It’s a nonsensical parody but oh so relevant! Adams is a brilliant writer; full of humour. His book gave me a great perspective on things.

If you could make one change to the world

I would follow Iceland’s example and implement equal pay for both sexes.

Heartfelt belief

Everyone is equal.

“All of us are in the gutter but some of us are looking at the stars,” Oscar Wilde

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 falls in line with International Women’s Day on the 8th March and the 100 finalists will also be featured in this special edition. To see the 100 finalists individually featured, please grab a copy of our March edition by pre-ordering through the link below. We will be publishing each woman online throughout March so watch our Facebook page or the website for their stories.

A huge congratulations to everyone nominated and to the finalists, you are all amazing!
