Announcing the 2018 NatWest EWIF Award Key Note Speaker

Encouraging Women into Franchising (EWIF) is a not-for profit organisation focusing their time and energy on supporting women who are looking to take control of their careers through franchising. Each year, EWIF hosts an Annual Awards Ceremony celebrating the achievements of women across the franchising industry.

This year will be the 8th annual awards and EWIF are delighted to announce their key note speaker will be Charlotte Pearce, Founder and CEO of ‘Inkpact’. Inkpact helps companies like Mr & Mrs Smith and Moet Hennessy stand out with their customer communications by allowing them to send handwritten messages to their customers at the touch of a button. Bridging this gap between technology and human interaction cuts through the clutter of modern marketing and improves customer engagement by providing a more personal touch than email.

With a passion for technology, social impact, and doing things differently, Charlotte has built a multi-million-pound company from the ground up. Not only does she provide the personal touch to her clients’ marketing campaigns, she also provides regular, flexible and meaningful work to many people around the UK and world-wide, who might otherwise find it difficult to have a regular job.

Charlotte is also a motivational speaker, women in tech advisor and mentor for social enterprises, NEF (the New Entrepreneur Foundation) and Enactus (a community of student, academic and business leaders committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to transform lives). As an experienced speaker, her inspirational story and bounds of energy captivates any room!

“When Charlotte presented to our audience of 400 people at Nudgestock – some of the UK’s leading marketers, clients and academics – she had the audience in the palm of her hand,” explains Ogilvy, Nudgestock organiser.

EWIF are already looking forward to hearing from Charlotte at our 2018 EWIF awards, and it will be the highlight of what is already shaping up to be an amazing day.
