See Coming Events and Dates below to find the programs that best suit your needs.
For the present time, we have transitioned our popular face-to-face professional development programs into dynamic Virtual Forums delivered in convenient chunks, where everyone stays fully engaged. These maintain the high level of interaction participants have come to expect from our programs, as well as being time efficient and cost effective. A recent survey of participants from our virtual sessions revealed that 97% were satisfied with their experience, and 95% felt that the process and the use of technology delivered a good to excellent return on their time and money.
To keep the learning alive, all FRI’s professional development sessions include dynamic small group discussions, as well as being:
FRI’s professional development programs can be delivered in several ways, enabling franchisors to choose the one that best fits the needs of their business.
Public Programs: These are a cost-effective option that enables you to register specific team members for the most suitable program. An added benefit of this option is the opportunity they have to share ideas with peers from other brands.
Internal Programs: This suits franchisors wanting to have their teams trained together as a group. The benefit of an internal program is it enables us to customise the content around the needs of your business, and it ensures everyone is exposed to the same material at the same time. Depending on the physical location of your team and legislative restrictions, we may be able to offer these as face to face programs, however we can deliver these successfully in a virtual format.
This virtual Masterclass is for senior franchisor executives and is based on FRI’s famous Franchisor Wheel of Excellence, developed from research into the strategies consistently practised by our most successful clients.
Through five 90-minute sessions you will learn the best practice franchising strategies that drive healthy, profitable and sustainable franchise networks. Plus you’ll be given access to FRI’s Franchisor Leadership Diagnostic enabling you to objectively assess the current health of your franchise network.
