Whilst you may all be feeling the summer blues after returning to work, here at EWIF we are determined to provide you with the perfect pick-me-up. September has now arrived and with it comes an incredible line up of events across the franchising industry. This month we have everything, from QFP workshops to franchise exhibitions, and of course, our very own Annual Conference. To find out more about where you should be this month click here.

September kicks off the final round of our 2016 regional meetings, with the London region holding their final regional meeting of the year on Thursday 15th September. London meetings are currently being organised and run by Anne-Marie Martin from diddi dance. We hold regional meetings around the UK on a regular basis to allow franchisors and prospective franchisees to meet, network, discuss best practice and hear from a range of industry experts.

September Spotlight Event

This month’s spotlight event could be nothing other than the 2016 EWIF Annual National Conference which will take place on Thursday 22nd September in Stratford-upon-Avon. Our conference gives EWIF members, both new and old, a chance to meet again or introduce themselves to the network. At our conference you will also hear about EWIF developments and hear from fantastic and inspirational guest speakers.

We have two excellent guest speakers lined up for this year’s conference, including our keynote speaker, Celia Delaney. Celia is a highly regarded speaker for organisations and individuals who want to promote their business through speaker. We feel privileged to have Celia at our National Conference as she is a sought-after speaker for women’s events: She has presented the annual NatWest Venus Awards in Devon, hosted women in business events and has been a national finalist in the Women Inspiring Women Awards.

Alongside our keynote speaker, Clare Davis will also be speaking at our National Conference. Clare will be giving a talk on “Networking for Success: Building Relationships to Build your Business.” This talk will outline how networking can create long term relationships to build profitable connections. If you feel your networking is not working, Clare will explain how you can strategise your relationship building to save time and get results.
