Successful leaders are ones who never stop looking toward growth. However, figuring out the best way to move forward is sometimes easier said than done — this is especially true for many franchise founders, presidents and CEOs, who already have a lot on their plates. FranConnect, the nation’s leading provider of franchise management systems, is offering a solution to this overwhelming issue. On December 5 and 6, FranConnect is hosting a two-day workshop called the Franchise Engagement and Execution Summit in Boca Raton, Florida.
The exclusive summit aims to attract leaders who possess a desire to continuously improve themselves through further education. FranConnect will provide a forum for franchising executives to collaborate, resolve pervasive obstacles, and bounce ideas off like-minded peers. As franchising executives begin preparing for 2014, they will have the opportunity to gather in a casual setting and gain some inspiration from the real life experiences of industry experts who have successfully transformed their businesses into high-performance and rapid-growth organizations.
The summit will act as a venue and training ground for CEOs to strategically develop their own blueprints to take back to their management teams. By honing their communication and problem-solving skills, executives will revive their knowledge of how to hire and retain great employees, energize a business, and ensure that their franchise continues to profit.
We know that the life of a franchise executive can be hectic, so getting the chance to bring top-level business leaders all under one roof to focus on the most pervasive issues facing CEO’s at the same time is a huge opportunity for the franchise community,” Keith Gerson, FranConnect President for Global Operations, said. “The Franchise Engagement and Execution Summit will connect the franchise industry’s most successful executives to address an agenda focused on strategic planning, hiring and retaining the right staff, improving internal communications, getting buy-in and mastering the disciplines of execution. There’s really no better opportunity to learn from the best.”
With a reputation for having a strong network of leading industry figures, attendees will get a chance to hear from world-class experts including keynote speaker and bestselling author Gino Wickman. Wickman is the founder of EOS Worldwide, a leadership team development company aimed at the small business and entrepreneurial community. He is also the author of Traction: Get A Grip On Your Business and Get A Grip: An Entrepreneurial Fable… Your Journey to Get Real, Get Simple, and Get Results.
FranConnect is fortunate enough to have built strong relationships with a network of executives like Gino,” Gerson said. “Since we are keeping the summit size intimate with only 25 spaces, CEOS will be able to get up-close and personal with Gino and other executives to get maximum results. These are the kind of relationships that can really impact a franchisor leader in moving their franchise brands forward.”
