QLD: Increasing Team Engagement & Productivity & Increase Profit

Unresolved disputes cost Australian businesses more than $12 Billion per year in lost productivity.  The impact of Franchising disputes can have devastating effects on business performance and productivity.

Whenever there is a need for decision making & negotiation in business, there is potential for dispute.  If not handled appropriately and effectively, Franchising disputes can damage the Franchisor, the Franchisee and the Franchise Business by way of:

  • irreparable damage to the business relationship;
  • loss of trust;
  • lost performance & productivity;
  • damage to reputation;
  • financial & personal loss
