Ali worked with a diverse set of clients in a range of sectors including Media, Medical, e-Business, Advertising, PR and Recruitment. He wanted to run his own business and decided to take up a franchise. After investigating the cost management sector, he chose Auditel, the UK and Ireland’s favourite and fastest growing Cost, Purchase and Supplier Management Franchise.
Ali explains: "Auditel’s business model is proven, robust, and lucrative. They have been established for a long period of time with full bfa membership. The company's financial performance has been fantastic. The network has grown to over two hundred Affiliates and the software and tools are exceptional!”
He continues: “But above all, the real reason that I chose Auditel is because of their values and the culture of the organisation. It's a very, very important and daunting decision to make, but I never felt pressured. They actively encouraged me to look at all the other options, to look at the market,
to look at the competition.
At every stage of the process, from the first exhibition that I attended, to phone calls and emails, everyone in the company at all levels treated me with respect. For me, their professionalism was a major reason to join and I am very happy to be in the company.”
Asked about the training, Ali enthused: “This is my first week now and it's been exceptional. The training was comprehensive, inspiring and an excellent foundation for client meetings and acquisition!”
Ali adds that in focusing on business development and account management, he has always maintained a consultative approach. He clearly identifies a client’s needs and requirements and fulfils these to the highest possible standard. Having joined Auditel, he is now able to use his skills in communication, analysis and negotiation to provide bespoke cost management services to his clients. Ali concludes: “This will enable them to concentrate on running their organisations. Above all, in adopting a holistic business strategy, I like to add value and help them to meet their aims and objectives.”
