What a fantastic day of learning and collaboration where 88 multi-unit franchisees and 37 franchisor executives from 32 brands shared their insights. Plus we had had the wisdom of 8 leading experts in finance, multi-unit development, people management and franchising trends.
According to participant feedback our International Guest Mentor, Aziz Hashim, was clearly the crowd favourite with over 60% of people saying his direct, down-to-earth and personal approach made the day for them. Another international guest, Rod Bristol from Profit Mastery, was also a hit with his practical insights for improving profitability and cash flow.
When asked one of the most important questions of all, “Have you achieved your objectives in attending”, 88% of participants responded with an overwhelming YES! The FRI team would like to thank everyone who attended this amazing Summit and contributed their ideas and enthusiasm. We are now busily preparing for our next exciting event — the National Franchise Operations Conference — specifically for people who support franchisees in the field.

Some people have asked if they can have a copy of Greg’s opening presentation. The answer is yes. Greg has also included a couple of slides with data from the pre-Summit Survey completed by delegates. There is some interesting information here. Click here to download the presentation.
For those who couldn’t make it to the Summit to see Aziz Hashim, here is a video of him reflecting on the benefits of becoming a multi-unit franchisee. Mentoring staff and gaining a greater understanding of how to do business figure highly, though the additional income is a welcome bonus!
