He worked closely with small, medium and large businesses. He understands the fundamental requirement shared by all – to work with suppliers that offer not only the most competitive prices but also a flexible approach to service delivery.
John says: “I am passionate about generating significant savings for organisations while simultaneously improving suppliers’ service. This allows them to focus more time on their core business. It is my belief that this can be successfully achieved through a deep understanding of how the business operates today and its aspirations for the future.”
Asked why he chose Auditel, John recalls: “Well, I’ve wanted to own my own business for many years. I had looked at ERA and Auditel 13 years ago, but the time wasn’t right for me then. About six months ago, I decided that now was the right moment and compared the most important features of the two franchises again. It was really that as an accountant, I was struck by the structured approach, the processes and the very coherent methods that they operate at Auditel. Then there was the differential in the cost, the excellent tools and finally, my belief in the product – I would buy that! So this is what really swung it.”
He is enthused about the training. “I obviously came with mixed thoughts, you know: ‘How is it going to be’? I can honestly say now, it was absolutely fantastic. I’ve been on many training courses in my life. Never have I come across one that was so professional, so well delivered and that has energised me in this way. At the end, I had three days before I started my business and I was like a coiled spring. I couldn’t wait to get out there and get started!”
Matt Sidwell, Auditel’s Network Development Director, adds: “John Wardle is one of a number of management professionals who have joined us this year. Like John, all our new Affiliates have done their due diligence in the franchise marketplace and opted for Auditel as their favourite choice. With many awards and nominations for best franchisee support, Auditel does stand out as an excellent white-collar franchise. We still have places for our highly recommended free Discovery Seminars in Winchester and would be pleased to meet you there or at the British Franchise Exhibition in Manchester on 21st and 22nd June.”
