October 23, 2013 // Franchising.com // RESTON, VA. – For many franchise founders, presidents and CEOs, the need to share executive experience is paramount. FranConnect, the nation’s leading provider of franchise management systems, announced today its solution to that need: a one-of-a-kind, two-day intensive workshop called the Franchise Engagement and Execution Summit held in Boca Raton, Fla. from Dec. 5–6, 2013.
The Franchise Engagement and Execution Summit will provide a forum exclusively for franchising executives to network, share expertise and create a plan for a successful start to the new year. Franchise CEOs, regardless of company size or industry, will have the opportunity to hear directly from experts that will share how they have transformed their businesses into high-performance and rapid-growth organizations, as well as participate in panels and small group sessions. FranConnect has established a reputation for connecting franchising executives through initiatives including its CEO Growth Circle virtual forums, and this summit will serve as a successful extension of that initiative.
"We know that the life of a franchise executive can be—to say the least—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."
In addition to learning strategy, engagement and execution, FranConnect’s summit will also provide an opportunity to focus in a productive venue, creating real results and personalized solutions. The event will offer strategic planning and training so CEOs can build their own blueprint for 2014 and beyond to take back to their management team.
The summit gives participants the chance to hear from leading figures in the industry, 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. The founder of the world-renowned company will focus on "getting everything you want from your business" to coincide with attendees’ ongoing strategic planning for 2014.
"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."
FranConnect is now accepting enrollments from CEOs, presidents and founders who recognize the value of being part of peer groups made up of other like-minded franchise leaders looking to discover new information or insights on resolving some of their most pervasive challenges and desire for continuous improvement.
