After visiting an exhibition…
Ali Ghani joined the Auditel Cost Management franchise after visiting a franchise exhibition. He was a Business Development Consultant for a variety of media companies and wanted to run his own business. He decided to take up a franchise.
He explains: "Auditel’s business model is proven, robust, and lucrative. They have been established for a long period of time with full British Franchise Association (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!
“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, the market and the competition. The training was comprehensive, inspiring and an excellent foundation for client meetings and acquisition!”
Matt Sidwell, Auditel’s Network Development Director for the UK and Ireland, says: “If like Ali, you are exploring ways to expand your horizon, visit this exhibition and drop in to meet us on Stand E280!”
