“To me, the ultimate WYLDE Woman is somebody who looks in the mirror and knows that they are enough – and truly believes it!” – Holly Willoughby
Each month, our WYLDE Women column shines a light on women doing inspirational work in their field. Whilst the nature of their work varies, they all share the same unwavering passion and unbreakable spirit to power through and really make a difference.
Kim has spent the last 40 years powering her way to becoming one of the most successful and well-respected female heads in a very male dominated industry.
