Coconut Creatives are always glad to help out a worthy organisation and, as the National Co-chairs of Encouraging Women into Franchising, widely known as EWIF, we were keen to lend a hand to organise last week’s NatWest EWIF awards. Having received a couple of EWIF awards ourselves, we were only too happy to support this great not-for-profit group.
With record attendance this year, the awards were a massive success and we’d like to congratulate each and every winner. Coconut Creatives led the event organisation with great support from Clive Sawyer, CEO of EWIF, Diane Wilson of Business Options and EWIF’s Regional Chairs. With over 10 years of experience in the franchise industry organising exhibitions, conferences and workshops, we know how to make an event go off with a bang!
Guest speakers included Rachel Elnaugh, a successful business woman who appeared on the first two series of Dragon’s Den and Andrew Taylor from NatWest, lead sponsors of the EWIF Awards. Both of their speeches gave us all food for thought and put the achievements of our award finalists into context.
“The EWIF awards are a great chance to celebrate the successes of so many women in the franchise industry and Coconut Creatives are extremely proud to be part of the organisation. We’d like to thank all the sponsors and the people who attended the event for making it such an inspiring day. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone at the National Conference in September,” explains Sally Anne Butters, Director of Coconut Creatives and National Co-chair of EWIF.
