The Second Annual Franchise Executive Symposium is Set For April 5
Palm Beach Atlantic University’s Titus Center for Franchising will host the second annual Franchise Executive Symposium from 12:30 to 5:30 p.m. April 5 on the West Palm Beach, Fla., campus. At this live interactive event, franchise executives can network, develop solutions to case studies, and soak up ideas from an executive panel discussion about franchise resales.
Dr. John Hayes, director of the Titus Center, said symposium participants will include top C-level franchise industry talent plus executives who handle training, operations, marketing and franchise development. This will create “a unique opportunity to brainstorm new ideas and solutions while encouraging thoughtful discussions that stimulate growth, creativity and strategic thinking for these individuals and their businesses.”
Matthias Lehner of Bodystreet and Ted Laatz of SUCCESS® Space will be on hand to present and benefit from the case study discussions relating to their franchises. Lehner is CEO and founder of Bodystreet, a European-based franchise that offers electro-muscle stimulation in its 300-plus units; he’s also vice chairman of the German Franchise Association. Ted Laatz is president of SUCCESS® Space, a new franchise that creates workplaces that are socially and technically innovative. Through ideas developed at the symposium, both franchisors hope to develop ideas for growing their businesses.
