Ever wondered what it is like to be given all tools necessary and then told to build something? Well, as many of us know, it’s definitely a challenge to start on your own! However, given the proper resources, it could end up being the best learning opportunity! Now take that approach and apply it to your business. If you are a growing franchisor and looking for the premier franchising networking event filled with resources, then look no further! IFA has teamed up with a taskforce to implement a program that could best serve the Emerging Franchisors needs.
The 2014 Emerging Franchisor Conference is an interactive platform for executives of brands that are just stepping into the market. Join fellow professionals who have been in the business for quite a while to gain tips and apply proven strategies on how to make your brand shine. Hear Warren Ellish, President & CEO of Ellish Marketing Group talk about World-Class Branding, Catherine Monson, CEO of FastSigns International discuss corporate culture and Mary Kennedy Thompson of the Dwyer Group give her “Lessons in Leadership.” After hearing their motivational stories, there is no doubt that you will be recharged and ready to GO BIG!
Not only does this event advise you on the necessary steps to reach the top, but it helps guide you in the right direction, especially in connection with your franchisees. Building trust from the start is crucial in any relationship, so enhance the connection with your current franchisee while creating new relations. By the end of the conference, you will know who you want to play a key role in your business, what you want from them, and where to put them in action.
Some key aspects of the conference that should not be missed are: the “Discussion with Franchise Founder’s and CEO’s”, the notorious “Shark Tank” session (yes you heard it right, get a sense of the deadly tank!), a case study of audience engagement and of course, the infamous roundtable discussions where you get up close and personal with the best in the business.
