February 13, 2014 // Franchising.com // West Palm Beach, Fla. – Ray Titus, founder and CEO of United Franchise Group and co-founder of Signarama, will be a featured speaker at the upcoming World Leaders Conference, a conference for top executives in business and ministry, held on March 5 and 6 at the Palm Beach Convention Center in West Palm Beach, Fla. Other featured speakers at the conference include Martin Luther King, III, Susan Cain, Ken Blanchard and keynote speaker Martin Sheen.
"I've attended the World Leaders Conference before and have always been blown away by the talent involved," said Titus. "I was thrilled to be asked to speak this year. I've learned things from attending this conference that have greatly impacted the way I lead my businesses, and to be asked to impart my knowledge to attendees is an honor."
Ray Titus is a life-long entrepreneur who got his start with his father, franchising legend Roy Titus, and went on to develop a group of successful business-to-business brands and franchise development services. United Franchise Group (UFG) houses brands including Signarama, the world's largest sign franchise; EmbroidMe, the world's largest embroidery franchise; Plan Ahead Events, the world's largest full-service management company; Billboard Connection, the world's largest out-of-home advertising franchise; and Transworld Business Advisors, a business brokerage firm. UFG also offers a unique range of development services that assist other franchise companies from conception to international expansion.
Titus was approached to speak at this year's conference after several years of attending the conference and being actively involved with the World Leaders Group. He will speak on Thursday, March 6 about franchising and helping others achieve their dreams.
"Franchising is different because essentially you are leading from the back while franchisees are running their business in their local markets," he said. "As a franchisor you take on the role of leader and mentor, while promoting entrepreneurship worldwide. It's something I'm personally passionate about, and that we're passionate about as an organization."
