QLD Christmas Event 19/11/2015

QLD Christmas Event: Franchising is All About People
Tips from QLD Franchising Experts

This year we will have an impressive combination of guest speakers and our panel of experts for the pre-party event from 4:00pm to 6:00pm and the key theme will be "Franchising is All About People".

This session will feature two guest speakers on the topics of franchisee recruitment and employee engagement. Our panel of experts will also contribute their own experiences to the mix.

Guest Speakers:

Dennis Midgley, Senior Account Manager for QLD/NT, Seek Commercial

Learn about online business and franchise buyers: Who are they, what they are looking for, how do they search and enquire, and what they are searching for. Find out their key pain points and things that are most important to them when looking for a franchise.

Christine Litera, Chrysallis Human Capital Consulting

As business owners we know that employee engagement can turn into great customer service which can equal even greater profits.  There is however so much more to engagement than simply hiring people that are willing to drive your organisational goals.

Christine will cover:

  • The truth behind embracing individuality
  • The value of shared ideas
  • Simple steps to integrate balance to your culture

This is a great event for Franchisors in QLD to:

  • Meet others in the franchising sector and share some Christmas Cheer
  • Share experiences with likeminded franchising professionals
  • GREAT opportunity to network with others in a relaxed social setting
  • Win a prize from Santa's Sack!
  • Finger food and a complementary beer or wine or soft drink
  • Have some fun!
