As the warmer weather finally begins, Coconut Creatives have been reflecting on a successful Q1. We launched our bfa Qualified Franchise Professional approved workshops this year and we’ve had a great response so far. The franchisors in attendance have been engaged and have taken away useful information and advice to implement within their businesses. We’ve had great feedback so far and we can’t wait to see what the rest of the year brings for our workshop programme.

In other news, our Founding Director, Sarah Carlile, has finally had her baby! Baby Thea was born on 10th May and is the newest addition to the Coconut family. Sarah will be tied up for the next few months attending to the baby’s every need but, in true Sarah fashion, she’s still on call if the Coconuts need her. As Sarah unwinds and enjoys her baby’s first few months, Paul Clegg is taking the reins as Managing Director and keeping the team in order.

And we’ve got even more to look forward to over the next couple of months! The EWIF Awards 2016 will soon be upon us and we can’t wait to celebrate the achievements of so many women within our industry. There was a fantastic response this year and we’d like to thank everyone for taking the time to tell us about their achievements.

After a Coconut Wedding, our very own Helen Thresh will become Helen Mansfield, and then we’re ready to tackle the summer months before the busy Autumn period begins. We know that the summer can be a quiet time for our franchisor clients while prospects relax on holiday but we’ll be busier than ever at Coconut Creatives as we prepare our clients for the busy exhibition period by making sure stands, collateral and team members are updated and ready to tell prospects about their opportunity.

2016 is set to be an exciting year for Coconut Creatives and we’ve still got even more plans in the pipeline to make sure our services are innovative so that our clients remain at the top of their game and ahead of their competitors. The latter half of the year will also see Sarah returning to work and we’re sure the break will have given her time to think of more ways we can continue to develop our services!
