Are you an entrepreneur running an unlisted company? Are you contemplating your growth strategy? Have your initial plans to develop the business stalled? Have you considered, and perhaps rejected, franchising in the past? Have circumstances changed and is it time to reconsider? Have you a developed business model that is capable of being repeatedly deployed? This seminar aims at addressing these, and other, issues.
Franchising is a potential growth strategy for some, but not all, businesses. That said, some opportunities are not an obvious choice as franchises but can grow into successful operations. Using a combination of slides, case studies and personal experiences you will learn how to consider franchising as a growth strategy. Delegates at the seminar are encouraged to participate and numbers will be limited to reflect this.
The seminar will be led by Sheilah Mackie, Head of Franchising at Blake Lapthorn (www.bllaw.co.uk) and Paul Delahunty, an accredited trainer with twelve years experience in the SME sector. Guest speakers will include Simon Hulme, an experienced franchisor who took the greetings card franchise Card Connnections through to a successful exit and Tim Bowyer a local banker at RBS with sector knowledge.
Copies of the slides and all supporting material will be supplied to delegates.
The seminar will take place on Thursday 10th May, 2012 between 9.30am and 12 noon at FSE’s offices in Camberley. The cost of attendance will be £40 plus VAT.
