InXpress franchisee is shortlisted for the NatWest EWIF Inspirational Woman in Franchising award

24th April 2018

Rebecca had an amazing 2017, full of great successes with her franchise business, and fundraising for EYESeeMe. Being announced as one of the finalist for the NatWest EWIF Award for Inspirational Woman of The Year 2018, sponsored by What Franchise, tops off an incredible year. 

Passionate about people As a self-confessed humanitarian, Rebecca is motivated by people and the desire for them to reach their goals. Everything Rebecca does, her heart and soul are immersed in. This worked well for her business, as she focused on developing the attention to customer service that InXpress are known for. 

It also meant she was a firm advocate and supporter of the ‘InXpress Gives Back’ initiative, where franchisees are encouraged to find ways to give back to people in their community, or on a more global level. 

Inspired by a documentary about women and children born into poverty, Rebecca wanted to make a difference. The growth of her InXpress business, particularly over the last few years, has allowed her to dedicate more of her time to helping others, and so the idea of a new charity was formulated with the aim of helping to educate children, and provide essential healthcare for them and women in the poorest, most rural places.

Rebecca introduced EYESeeMe to the InXpress network, and the franchisees supported her from the offset.  Creating a ‘Penny per Shipment’ campaign: InXpress pledged to donate 1p from every shipment booked through every franchise, through November. The total raised was over £2,000, enough to support 71 childrenwith an education in Thailand!

Using compassion to reach her goals  Rebecca is an incredibly hardworking and compassionate person who is supported extensively by her InXpress Hull staff. They give her the confidence to enable her to help others. Rebecca says, “I am very blessed. I want to inspire the InXpress network both on how they run their businesses, but also about how we can be more practical with the ways we give back to the community.” 

Huge congratulations, and good luck Rebecca – you’re a true inspiration!
