Every year, people from across the industry come together to celebrate the best of women’s achievements in the franchising industry by supporting us at our NatWest Encouraging Women into Franchising (EWIF) Awards. The quality and quantity of award entries we received for our 2017 awards was overwhelming, inspirational and all in all just incredible.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved with making the awards such a success, including our award applicants, winners, sponsors and everyone who attended the awards ceremony to support their friends, colleagues and us here at EWIF.
EWIF continues to go from strength to strength, we now have over 100 members and are still working hard to grow our women in franchising network. With our upcoming ten-year anniversary, we are busy planning for 2018 and are sure that it will be our best year yet.
Finally, we would like to give huge congratulations to all our award winners. Below are links to case studies on all of our winners. You can read all about their achievements and the impact that their award win has had on their business.
