Women in Franchising Breakfast Review: ‘Bringing Women in Franchising Together’

By September 19, 2017 February 9th, 2018 Business

To recognise RUOK day the Franchising Council of Australia held an event to bring women together who work in franchising or support franchise based businesses.

The event was held at Sandringham Yacht Club. There was time before the event started to network with other attendees. The event featured a sit down breakfast whilst listening to a panel of women who were in the franchising industry. These women spoke about their personal experiences in dealing with staff who have depression and other mental health conditions. Mental health is not a barrier to running a successful business, and it was evident from the discussion that it is something that needs to be managed rather than ignored.

Attendees of the event were a mix of franchisees, franchisors  and industry professionals who support this industry. Given the Franchise Council of Australia is a member based organisation it seemed as though a lot of people in the room knew each other, which made networking quite difficult as someone new to these events.

The food at the event was good, however the portions were very small.

Location: Sandringham Yacht Club, Jetty Rd, Sandringham VIC 3191

Cost: $60 for non-members

Highlight: We were given show bags that featured a range of products designed to help women pamper themselves.

Hot tip: Be ready to discuss franchising and get to the event early so you can fit in networking.

Rating: 2/5
