About this Event

Hosts: Caroline Sparks – Turtle Tots & Sarah Canny – The AFA

Speaker: Denise O’Leary – Purpol Marketing: Bio below…

Join us for franchisor focused networking, a light lunch and an educational talk. Included in the price of the ticket is a light lunch and parking at the stadium.

Are you a franchisor, thinking of franchising or do you work within the franchise sector? Although most of us network, we generally don’t have any opportunities to meet others in the franchising world, and this is why the AFA® has set up regional meet-ups across the country.

These informative seminars are specifically aimed at franchise owners, those looking to franchise and service providers within the sector, who are seeking the latest industry news and updates. There will be a series of enlightening presentations, as well as the chance to actively participate in a useful, roundtable discussion with other, like-minded individuals within the industry, looking at issues, trends and best practices.
