On 1 May 2019 at the National NatWest EWIF (Encouraging Women into Franchising) Awards event held in London, Sarah Johnson of Hull based it’seeze websites, beat the competition to claim the NatWest New Woman Franchisee of the Year 2019.

In Central London Sarah Johnson from it’seeze websites accepted her accolade from EWIF. Sarah has been working tirelessly on growing it’seeze websites Hull & East Yorkshire since starting the business 18 months ago with her husband, Nic. Their work has not gone unnoticed, as Sarah has been recognised by the franchise industry for her dedication, ambition and ability to inspire others. Hundreds of entrants applied for the category of NatWest New Woman Franchisee of the Year 2019, but Sarah shone through the finalists to win this prestigious award.

Every year EWIF holds an annual award ceremony designed to bring together the best women in the industry to celebrate their successes. EWIF’s 2019 Awards brought together over 150 franchise professionals to celebrate women in franchising. A true celebration of women and their place in the world of business.

Sarah said:

“Being a woman in a largely male-dominated sector isn’t without it’s challenges, so it’s a real privilege to be recognised nationally for the amazing results we achieved within the first year of the business.”

EWIF is a not-for-profit organisation, providing advice and guidance to anyone looking to break into the franchise industry. The 2019 EWIF awards ceremony was preceded by a black tie reception at the Waldorf Hilton Palm Court for the finalists.
