Coconut Creatives is pleased to announce that Sally Butters, Director of Coconut Media, has been shortlisted at the 2013 Encouraging Women Into Franchising (EWIF) Awards. She is a finalist for the Merry Maids Award for Woman Service Provider of the Year Award.
Sally has made a continuous effort not only to encourage women into franchising but also in strengthening the role of women in franchising. She also represented the ladies well at the bfa Chairman’s charity day in September when she gave the men much more than they bargained for at the karting. Coconut Creatives and Coconut Media wish the finalists in all categories the best of luck at the awards ceremony in London on the 16th May.
