Among the latest group of Auditel’s new franchisees was Seán Harnett. Before becoming an Auditel Cost Management Consultant, he worked as a B2B Sales Account Manager focusing on manufacturing companies in the Medical, Bio Pharmaceutical, Engineering and Electronic Industries.
Asked why he chose Auditel, Seán recalls: “I wanted to start my own business, but I didn't have the knowledge and the skill set to go it alone, but that's exactly what Auditel gives you. It’s a very successful organisation, with a great support network. Even though I was starting my own business, I felt that I was not alone. It's my business, it's my responsibility, but if I need help, there is always someone at the end of the phone or an email to come to me or give me guidance. Auditel also offered to accompany me to prospect meetings; that was very, very important for me."
Seán says the training was great and the instructors were very informed and always willing to take the time to answer questions and consider suggestions. He believes his previous experience will enable him to offer clients a valuable service. “It gave me a broad range of Sales Management know-how and an in-depth knowledge of how to work with large Multi Nationals and SMEs. I have a detailed understanding of successfully delivering and implementing solutions to ensure the benefits are felt within the whole organisation.”
Edward Brewer, Auditel’s Franchise Development Director, says: “Séan is one of more than two hundred Auditel likeminded franchisees who have brought a wealth of expertise to our network.
