Easy Internet sponsored the innovation award at the annual Women in Business awards in September 2015. We had a fantastic time at the event, which was held at the Holiday Inn in Leicester. Other sponsors included the University of Leicester and Costco wholesale.

The Women in Business awards were geared at recognising the role of women in business and their contribution to businesses up and down the country.

Marie Cart, director of employer engagement at the college, said:

“Both women and apprentices make an enormous difference to the workplace.”

“Women now represent 55 per cent of all apprentices across the country and 54 per cent of young people would now put an apprenticeship as their first choice.”

“More and more employers are recognising the importance of female apprentices in traditionally under-represented sectors such as construction and engineering.”

Our Managing Director Diana Esho was there to represent Easy Internet Services, who sponsored the Innovation Award. The award held great significance for Diana, who in 2000 was at the helm of Rank4U, one of the UK’s first digital agencies to promise a ‘no rank, no fee’ service. Diana delivered a powerful speech in which she implored more young women to pursue careers in technology like she has done, and push the boundaries of convention.
