NatWest EWIF Awards 2019

 

Here at EWIF, we focus our time and energy on supporting women who are looking for a route into the franchising industry. Our mission is to educate, inspire and empower and one way we do this is by hosting an Annual Awards Ceremony celebrating the achievements of women across the franchising industry.

Our 2019 awards took place on Wednesday 1st May at RBS Building, 280 Bishopsgate, London. The atmosphere was electric, and now, after all the excitement, we are extremely proud to announce the winners for this year’s NatWest EWIF awards, and would like to thank everyone who entered and attended!

Our EWIF Awards 2019 Key Note Speaker this year was Penny Power OBE

Widely regarded as the pioneer behind LinkedIn, Penny is the founder of three successful businesses, is happily married, has raised three children, enjoys holidays and travel, and has an OBE under her belt… all looks so good. The reality is that there is a lot of pain, challenges, adversity and loss of self-worth in her business and life journey.

In November 2017, Penny realised she had hit a stumbling block. The constant demand and pressure had become too much. She realised she needed to press the pause button and reassess her business mind to decide if she wanted to be as ambitious as she has always been. So, Penny decided to take some time off to discover more about herself and the parts of her personality which had always seemed to make business a tough world for her. 

As a result of Penny’s personal discoveries, she feels she could have enjoyed a far more joyful business journey and sees many similarities in the lives of others. Penny now feels more whole than ever before, and in her speaking, she passionately shares her journey and the discoveries she made.
