The latest induction finished on June 3, 2016 and was held in the Antal headquarters in London. It was also a great opportunity for some existing owners, Nausherwan Akram and Imo Etuk, to join the training held by Stephen Sweeney as a refresher and to meet their new colleagues. Paulo Nogueira, new franchisee in Portugal, was sadly unable to join the class in London but he was part of an online training held by Stephen.
The new owners, introduced to you below, will launch businesses around the globe in different sectors such as hospitality, construction, design, real estate, engineering, automotive and accounting.
Doug Bugie, Antal Network’s President, has over 31 years of experience and 10 years at Antal. Doug and his team have helped hundreds of new owners to open in 40+ countries. Our executive team has collectively 200 years of experience, which can help you build a strong, profitable enterprise.
Doug says: “We are recognised as the leading franchised opportunity in global recruitment and as an exceptional international recruitment business in our own right. Becoming an Antal owner can be a very rewarding and stimulating experience – it puts you squarely in the action in the global business arena. It is fun and will stretch you. We are a proven business, awarded Top Entrepreneur in the UK by Ernst & Young and number one globally by our industry peers. In major markets like China, India, Western and Eastern Europe, we are market leaders not as a franchise, but as a recruitment business.
We are seeking owners who are smart, can communicate, are passionate about professionalism and who want to earn a lot of money.”
