Franchise Financial Sustainability Masterclass

October 5, 6, 25, 26 (4-day professional development intensive)


Learn how to use financial data to maximise franchisee profitability

Can you cross-reference franchisee financial data into meaningful information?

Can you then communicate what you see, firstly to the franchisee, and then translate into an operational strategy to build franchisee profits?

Do you dread field visits with your franchisees as they complain about the lack of support from Head Office or ask questions you can’t answer? 

What if you could turn all that around and turn up franchisee profits so they sing your praises?  What if there was an easy way to take the pain out of franchise field visits?

Fortunately, there is a solution to these issues – Franchise Financial Sustainability Masterclass from Griffith University and Avatar Consulting.


Franchise Financial Sustainability Masterclass

While avoiding questions and reading straight off a profit and loss statement doesn’t keep franchisees engaged, a sound strategy that consistently delivers value does.

The Franchise Financial Sustainability Masterclass shows how to tie all those financial elements to specific franchise business objectives and demonstrate how to continually optimise franchisee performance based on the financial data.

The training program will enable you to mine every bit of meaning from the financial reports that cross your desk, to employ financial techniques that can multiply your effectiveness, and to foresee business opportunities that remain invisible to others.

If you’re not a ‘numbers person’, this is the perfect way to learn what you’ve always needed to know.  Don’t miss this chance to do it. (Even in you are a numbers person this training will still fine-tune your skills).

This financial management development program will help you:

  • Read and understand the most common financial reports.
  • Calculate ROI and other key ratios and communicate them to your franchisees for their own decision making.
  • Influence your franchisees’ budgeting process to generate greater returns.
  • Accurately predict economic turning points that will affect your franchisees’ businesses.
  • Understand the importance of cross-referencing different financial reports to identify key risks and opportunities.
This training can also be tailored to your franchise needs and delivered in house (POA). Request more information.
