Your last chance to book for the FNB Franchise Leadership Summit - FASA Members get special price for Franchisors ... 23 October 2013
Hilton Hotel, Sandton

As a franchisor, you can't afford to miss the 2nd FNB Franchise Leadership Summit on the 23rd October at the Hilton Hotel in Sandton. This is your chance to catch up on what's happening on the franchise front, participate in our panel discussions and network with leaders in the field. Some of the key areas that will be covered include:

FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER - A PROPERTY PANEL ON FRANCHISING

If you are a franchisor and want some answers to rising rentals then don't miss the FNB FRANCHISE LEADERSHIP SUMMIT on the 23rd October at the Hilton Hotel in Sandton. This year a property panel consisting of prominent franchisors and property owners discuss how landlords and franchisors/franchisees can work together to stimulate small business growth. Participants include: Carlo Gonzaga, CEO of Taste Holdings, Wilma Lombard-Maree, Development Director at McDonald's, Jeff Zidel, Chairman of Fortress Income Fund and co-founder of Resilient Properties, Hildegarde Riphagen of Zenprop Property Holdings and Louis van der Watt, Group CEO of Atterbury Property Holdings.

HOW TO MAKE MULTI-UNIT FRANCHISING WORK

With scarcity of resources and the growing importance of economies of scale, many franchises are pursuing multi-unit ownership as the preferred method of growth. Doug Smart, MD of Yum/KFC SA and Burt Gunning, KFC Franchisee of the Year for 2012 will give us their perspectives on this topic in a panel on multi-unit ownership.

Ian Fuhr took a journey that led him from a retail chain sold to Edcon, to a record company, a race relations consultancy and then to the health and beauty sector when he co-founded The Sorbet Group. Come listen to their stories to be inspired by entrepreneurship at its best.
