The 2013 bfa HSBC Franchisee of the Year Awards recognise franchisees that have demonstrated exceptional business practice in their franchise over the last year. The Female Franchisee of the Year category, supported by Express Newspapers, particularly recognises the accomplishments of female franchisees whose drive and commitment to achieving fantastic results has furthered best business practice across their network.
“The bfa HSBC Franchisee of the Year Awards provide us with an opportunity to hear about franchisees advocating excellence across their industry. We have been impressed by the high calibre of the applicants and the results delivered. It has been truly inspirational to hear from this year’s finalists showcasing their successes, having taken the step into franchising,” explains Sean Hammond, Head of Franchising at Express Newspapers.
Shweta Jhajharia joined ActionCOACH in 2008 and has since risen to be the most successful female ActionCOACH worldwide. Since 2008 Shweta has helped more than 300 business owners in achieving their business goals and dreams. She is also the first female business coach in Europe ever to be awarded the ActionCOACH Emerald Level Certification for consistently achieving a turnover in excess of £40,000 per month. This and her support of the local community and charity work inspire all female and male coaches across the country.
“I am delighted to be the finalist for this award, which provides another platform to recognise the participation, development and achievements of women in the business world. I think it is also important to recognise that in the business of coaching, helping other businesses is at the core of my own business model and therefore my success is inextricably linked to the success of my clients. My greatest happiness from my business success has been to see my clients grow phenomenally,” says Shweta.
Shweta is one of four finalists in the Female Franchisee of the Year Award category. The winner of each category will be announced at the ICC in Birmingham on Thursday 3rd October. The overall HSBC Franchisee of the Year will be chosen from the five category winners.
