Brian Duckett, Chairman of The Franchising Centre, organisers of the Franchise Supplier Showcase commented:
“Feedback from attending franchisors tells us that they like the combination of a conference with good panel sessions featuring successful franchisors, great guest speakers and being able to catch up with 20 suppliers to the franchise industry all on the same day. It’s a packed programme, but it makes it worth taking a day out of the office for busy franchisors."
This year’s guest speakers included Eric Ho, with his inspirational stories and management tips, and Dr Mark Yates the UK’s leading Linkedin advisor. In addition there was a presentation from Pera Consulting about the Government’s Growth Accelerator scheme. Co-organiser Nick Strong of Select Your Franchise said:
“We have heard a lot about Growth Accelerator in the franchising sector, but it was good to have a representative with us for the day that could give practical help and advice on how franchisors and their franchisees can actually access the funding."
The Franchising Centre has been selected to help Pera Consulting ensure the franchise community knows how to gain access to Growth Accelerator funding.
