Franchise Council of Australia Technology Roadshow

As members of the FCA, you’ve been telling us you want more on technology.

More information. More education. More application.

We’ve heard you.

You’ve been told about Facebook for years. Experts have been telling you how to build a page, get likes and increase your brand awareness. But how exactly do you go about growing your business and increasing profit using this online juggernaut?

Hear it straight from the horse’s mouth.

The FCA Technology Roadshow has your business concerns covered.

Marketing with Facebook.
Operational systems and tools with World Manager.
Cloud software with Shoebooks.
