Margherita Boemo

Managing Director, Sprint Gas (Aust) Pty Ltd, Australia

For me, the WINLPG is an opportunity to demonstrate that “diversity” is much more than a buzzword for our time. Research has shown that women in developing countries were the ones who used LPG products, yet it is the men in the industry who set the agenda and develop the policies. Women need to be a key contributor to the conversation so let’s start to educate and engage.

Rita Caroselli

Director, Assogasliquidi, Italy

In my opinion, leadership means having the authority to state your own views, without domineering, but by reasoning in a serious and thorough way on all the choices you want to propose. It also means being humble enough to change direction if others can explain comprehensively the inaccuracy of your ideas, while at the same time always being consistent with yourself.

Head of Downstream & Storage at Petredec, Mauritius

At the age of two, I was plucked away from my birth island, Reunion in the Indian Ocean, to make my first steps in Holland. This event added an extra dimension to my path of becoming an adult. Truth be told, I have suffered many years of the feeling ‘not to belong’ and it took me a long time to develop my own identity.

Beth Reid

Director International Business Development, UGI International, United Kingdom

I do believe that women are naturally configured to be more humble, more empathetic, and due to this maybe we hold back more than we should – usually whilst we are trying to figure it all out. Networks such as WINLPG are so important in helping to give women the confidence to take bigger and bolder steps and make progress in the industry.

Alison Abbott

Communications Director at WLPGA, France

With the role I hold within the WLPGA I attend all our industry council meetings, usually numbering some 30-40 industry leaders. It is rare to see another women and I look forward to the day when there is a more equal mix. No doubt this will take time but having launched WINLPG in 2015, we have now put the wheels in motion to address this and literally start to change the face of our industry.
