Harry Wild: Director of Go Wild Communications
Biggest professional achievement to date?
The culmination of all of my achievements has made me feel immensely proud of where I am now. I attribute this to years of hard work, perseverance, showing up, being bothered and learning from the incredible people around me.
Most profound/life-changing, business moment?
Taking the leap to set up my freelance business instead of seeking the safety net of employment was a terrifying decision. Sage advice was given from my incredible support network of mentors, friends and family. So far, it has been a dream come true – I get to follow my passion for food and drink, while my clients are all at the top of their game; promoting them is an absolute pleasure.
Advice for a young woman stepping into the world from school, college or uni?
Alongside your career, put yourself in influential positions by volunteering your spare time on boards, committees, and community groups. You’ll create opportunities, meet incredible people and learn so much within this safe environment.
If you could make one change to the world?
We could all take small steps to create better, more resilient, healthier communities, so the change I’d make is for everyone to roll up their sleeves and pitch in that little bit more.

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!
