Encouraging Women into Franchising Awards FINALIST – Claire O’Connor

We are incredibly proud to announce that our founder & CEO Claire O’Connor has become a finalist in not one but TWO categories in the prestigious Encouraging Women into Franchising (EWIF) Awards 2021.

Despite the adverse challenges our business, alike many others, has had to face this past year, Claire’s drive and determination to “fluff out her tutu and carry on”!  has undoubtedly prevailed.

Offering around the clock support, mentoring and guidance – sometimes single-handedly – to the babyballet team in the UK and overseas is no mean feat. Yet Claire has continued to motivate, inspire and share her infectious smile with us all throughout; ensuring that the babyballet brand didn’t just survive during the pandemic but it has thrived.

Inspirational is what Claire is to our babyballet network every single day so it is no shock to us that she is being recognised so highly. Already a winner in our eyes, we are lucky to have her and to be a part of her babyballet family.

Huge congratulations to all of the other deserving finalists for your fantastic achievements.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Platinum Wave Franchising and Hitachi Capital Business Finance for your support in sponsoring these categories.

With love, from all at babyballet xx
