EWIF are pleased that to announce that the keynote speaker for this year’s awards will be the fantastic Melody Hossaini! Melody has a plethora of accolades to her name including ‘New Europe’s Most Influential Woman’ which was awarded to her by the European Parliament in 2015. She is the multi-award winning founder and CEO of InspirEngage International, one of the world’s leading organisations in skills training and people development. Melody was also a co-founder of U.K Youth Parliament at the age of 13, and continues to be a government advisor on enterprise and skills.
Melody has also worked on a number of peace-implementation schemes with Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and has been trained by ex vice-president Al Gore on the topic of climate change at Cambridge University. In 2011, Melody beat 75,000 applicants to become a candidate on BBC’s ‘The Apprentice’, making history as the first ever (and til this day the only) social entrepreneur to compete on the show- making it to week 10 out of 12 with Lord Sugar describing her as “a woman of exceptional ability”.
As a champion of women’s advancement, Melody has given training to hundreds of women in an effort to help them launch their own social enterprises. She is also a member of the prestigious CEO Champion's Group of FTSE 100 companies helping women to prosper.
The NatWest EWIF Awards are the biggest event of the EWIF calendar and brings together people from all over the franchise industry to celebrate and recognise the successes of our fantastic award entrants.
