TaxAssist’s Master Franchisee for Australia, Terry Murphy, his business partner Celeste Godwin, and David Paulson and Richard Chatten from the accounting franchise’s international development team, were among the 22 guests hand-picked for the invitation-only FCA event at Tattersalls Club.
The dinner provided an excellent opportunity for guests to network with senior figures in the country’s franchise sector, including the FCA’s new Executive Chairman (and former Small Business Minister), Bruce Billson and new FCA CEO Damian Paull.
Terry said: “The chance to meet senior franchisors and discuss the future of franchising was most rewarding, especially with David and Richard as they were able to help give a global perspective with their insight into franchising in the UK.”
TaxAssist’s Australian and UK teams joined forces again two days later to successfully promote its business opportunity at the Brisbane Franchising and Business Opportunities Expo.
David Paulson, Senior Manager UK & International Development, at TaxAssist Accountants, said: “Many of the 30 or so potential franchisees we met at the exhibition, who were keen to join our Australian franchise network were CPA-qualified or had impressive financial backgrounds.
“As a result, early indications point to TaxAssist welcoming a number of new franchisees becoming part of our flourishing success story in Australia.”
