QLD Franchise Management Forum

Learn management strategies and tactics behind successful chains from franchise leaders

The Franchise Management Forum brings together franchise founders and senior franchisor executives to share the latest developments, research and methods to grow networks, as well as profits for both franchisees and franchisors.

Learn from real case studies, and discover strategies and tactics to benefit your brand.

With presentations from franchise brands that are internationally recognised to emerging brands that are poised for growth, the Franchise Management Forum is specifically designed to engage participants in best practice franchise management, and encourage high-level strategic thinking in current and future franchise leaders.

Jointly presented by the Asia-Pacific Centre for Franchising Excellence and the Franchise Advisory Centre since 2009, these Forums consistently deliver high-level franchise learning in a practical and meaningful way.

If you're part of the management executive in your network, you need to add this Forum to your list of annual professional development activities.

Participants are eligible for Franchise Council Australia's Certified Franchise Executive Program Education Credits for completing Griffith University's APCFE Franchise Management Forum.

An essential professional development event for franchise leaders

  • Informative presentations with strategies and tactics from five successful franchise brands;
  • Interactive Open Exchange round-table discussion with franchise experts and peers debating industry "Hot Topics";
  • Face-to-Face networking opportunities with seasoned management professionals and peers over lunch, breaks and the Open Exchange session;
  • Learn franchise growth strategies and techniques you can apply to get results with fewer people and limited budgets;
  • Interaction with colleagues sharing successful management tactics and tools to inspire and hone your franchise management skills;
  • Post-event join the Linkedin Management Forum Attendees group to stay informed.

Open Exchange Session:

A key feature of each Forum is the Open Exchange session, in which all delegates participate in a facilitated discussion on five current marketing hot topics. Four of these topics are determined in advance, and the fifth topic is decided by the group on the day, so that the Forum's content is customised to suit its participants.

Not only is this highly engaging and creates high-level exchanges among participants, but the learning outcomes are also summarised and provided to participants after the Forum as a learning resource.

See 2016 Open Exchange Summaries here.

By providing an environment in which frank and open discussion occurs, Forum participants learn from each other while at the same time building relationships for ongoing networking and future exchange.
