Angela Rimmer: Businesswoman & Social Entrepreneur – 100 Most Influential Women 2018
Biggest professional achievement to date
Establishing two thriving businesses, particularly the pioneering not for profit Teignmouth Thunderbirds TBirds Netball Club CASC, which have a clear and effective social impact.
Best life advice ever received
Do a job you enjoy, working with people you like and who like you, and get rewarded for what you do. Louise Hay
Advice for a young woman stepping into the world from school, college or uni
Learn to tune into and trust your inner voice. You have the power to create your own reality; when you change your thoughts you change your world.
Which book has had the greatest influence on you and why?
Some of the core messages in “Lean in” by Sheryl Sandberg still resonate with me. Young girls need strong female role models to lead by example & help them to appreciate how truly amazing they are.
If you could make one change to the world
Remove judgement and increase kindness, which would hopefully remove the causes of world-wide conflict and eradicate poverty.
“Awaken wild, wonderful woman to the truth of who you are” Susanna Michaelis

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!
