FROM OUR DIRECTOR
This franchise conference is all about ‘What Winning Looks Like’. I’m sure you are not alone if you have had a tough year, but are the tables turning? Business confidence is at its strongest that it has been for a number of years. There are more franchise systems crossing the Nullarbor and setting up operations in WA. But with all the doom and gloom of the past how will we know what success looks like when we reach it?
Our conference aims to not only bring the Western Australian Franchising Industry together for a day of learning and networking, but we aim to inspire you through our keynote speakers and presenters and perhaps you can take away a couple of golden nuggets.
Managing Director, Jim’s Group
We are delighted that Jim Penman, Managing Director, Jim’s Group will be keynoting the Conference. The Jim’s Group MD will share his insights on the view from the top, discussing how his company has grown to over 50 Divisions and almost 4,000 franchisees throughout Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the United Kingdom.
Come and join us as we as we have a wonderful program designed for you to ‘ask the tough questions’ to our Franchisor panel and to learn from our Multi Unit Franchisees on how they made the transition into multiple businesses.
Then we can all catch up at our post conference Networking Drinks and share our own ‘wins’.
I look forward to seeing you there!!
