Celebrating International Women’s Day: Nicki Prater

Posted: 11.03.2024

8th March marks International Women’s Day; a time for us to say thanks to all the hard-working women across the Obsequio Group, but as our team work hard 365 days of the year, dedicating just one day isn’t going to be enough. We’re sharing stories across the group that celebrate our female team and to kick-start things off, we wanted to introduce Nicki Prater, who as of December 2023 became our Managing Director. With over 20 years of experience in the fire and security industry, Nicki has a wealth of knowledge and a passion for keeping people safe.

For Nicki, leadership isn’t about commanding from the top; it’s about supporting and mentoring our team to ensure they can excel in their roles. She champions collaboration as the cornerstone of our success, recognising the value of every individual’s contribution and fostering a culture of inclusivity and support.

What sets CDS apart is our people culture—a warm and welcoming environment where hard work is balanced with camaraderie. Nicki is quick to highlight the importance of recognising individual achievements, sharing knowledge, and encouraging one another. Here, we work as a team, leveraging each other’s strengths and embracing a collaborative approach to problem-solving.

Central to our mission is the commitment to keeping people and property safe. For Nicki and the entire team, this isn’t just a job; it’s a calling—a profound sense of purpose that drives us every day. Knowing that our efforts in fire safety can save lives gives us a deep sense of fulfilment and motivates us to strive for excellence in everything we do.

Moreover, Nicki is passionate about encouraging diversity in our industry, particularly among women. She believes that talent knows no gender or race and encourages girls to explore careers in fire safety from an early age. At CDS, we believe in empowering individuals to reach their full potential, regardless of background or gender and the more we push for this becoming the norm, the more we work towards a future where women don’t require a day of recognition, because it becomes recognised everyday.

I want to welcome people to join us at CDS, regardless of background and gender and whether you’re a seasoned professional or just starting your journey, we offer a supportive environment where your skills and talents are valued.

Come be a part of something greater. Come be a part of CDS.
