Highly accomplished women reach the pinnacle of their success for the same reason that a man does, because they are talented, driven and committed. Women should not be celebrated because they have reached the same position a man has. Instead, they should be celebrated because their unique strengths and attributes makes them an exemplary person.
And this was exactly what renowned public relations outfit, Xavier Mah Consultancy, celebrated in conjunction with their 6th anniversary recently, honouring six amazing women at its #beaXsuperwoman event.
