Franchise Your Freedom -with David Weaver

Have you considered franchising your business or buying into a franchise? Would you know how to start and do this effectively?

My guest, David Weaver, got his first taste of business ownership by watching both parents build and operate successful businesses. His career allowed him to develop unique skills and expertise in sales, project management, operations, and finance.

One of his most valuable career stops spanned over six years and included analysing and underwriting franchise systems to establish the “right fit” between the franchisor, franchisee, and finance company. He has owned or been a partner in seven different businesses.

In addition to managing his current FranChoice consulting practice, David and his wife invest in franchises and real estate assets.

Join us as we explore how franchising can bring you financial freedom and the top tips and lessons that can help you to do this very successfully.

In advance of my first ever public speaking gig, at a high profile event, I booked one to one coaching sessions with Chris Cooper.  They were invaluable.  Through working with Chris I learned so much in such a short space of time that I was able to pull together a well-structured and powerful PowerPoint presentation and deliver my talk with confidence.  It clearly paid dividends as I received some fabulous feedback.  This is a direct quote from one of the delegates:

“First time?!  Thought you created a clear, engaging and informative talk.  Have to say that, today, no other speakers I have seen have actually got the audience to interact with our own thoughts (rather than simply talking to us and asking rhetorical questions only) 😊 “

YAY!  Thank you Chris for your encouragement, support and for believing in me.  Sarah J Naylor
