“Completing this course gave me the confidence to buy a franchise and I am now the Director/Franchisor of a fitness franchise.  After spending such a long time working in the sector, the course has given me more confidence to back my knowledge and experience, it has given me more specific tools to use with regard to marketing in the service sector and finally the course taught me very strong reflective learning skills. The lecturers were amazing. I did the course on line as I am based in Adelaide and the ability to connect with and get almost instant feedback was outstanding.”
