Blueprint for business growth

Business growth is challenging and there are many ways that you can choose to grow quickly. One of the most popular, and effective ways to do this is to follow the franchising model.

This unique one day event will look at what’s required to make a success of this business model and how you might be able to apply that to your business. Whatever stage you are at in your business lifecycle, you should come along to this event to discover whether it can work for you now or in the future.

You’ll hear from two of the UK’s most successful female franchisors, Stephanie Manuel founder of Stagecoach Theatre Arts School and Lara Goodbody co-founder of Yoga Bugs.
