Behind every successful brand is a mover and shaker - a visionary who saw an opportunity and turned it into a household name - benefiting other entrepreneurs, catering to consumer demand and above all creating a network of viable businesses and exponential jobs.
FNB has partnered with Franchising Plus to host the inaugural FNB Franchise Leadership Summit. For the first time, thought leaders from the industry will get together to discuss the burning issues in franchising, developing leadership in this sector and outlining latest trends and developments.
