The chance to hear directly from such high-calibre speakers from a diverse cross-section of franchise business is very rare and is not to be missed.

As well as the quality of its speakers, the Franchise Management Forum also prides itself on providing an open and interactive environment for the sharing of stories and ideas. The Open Exchange is always one of the most popular sessions at the Forum and encourages group problem-solving and discussion of the hottest issues in franchising.

The annual Franchise Management Forum, jointly organised by the Franchise Advisory Centre and Griffith University’s Asia-Pacific Centre for Franchising Excellence, has been running since 2009.

The full-day program of high-profile speakers, interactive exchange of ideas and industry networking is a must for anyone seeking to expand their franchise management skills and knowledge, with real life learnings to take away for the benefit of their business.
