This Friday and Saturday Auditel will be exhibiting on stand E280 at the National Franchise Exhibition, which will take place at the NEC in Birmingham.

Visitors at the exhibition will have the opportunity of meeting two Auditel franchise owners who are taking part in the Franchisee Panel. The Franchisee Panel is designed to provide a first hand account of what it is like making the transition from being employed to working for yourself.

On Friday at 1.30pm Adrian Burton will be on the Franchisee Panel stand. Based in Walsall, Burton joined Auditel in April 2008. Prior to joining the franchise he worked in business software solutions, he said: “Since joining Auditel I have put all my skills to good use working with a variety of organisations. These include care homes, charities and retail organisations. I have provided significant savings and advice across a wide range of overhead categories.”

While on Saturday at 10.30am Claire Power-Browne will join the Franchisee Panel. Power-Browne joined Auditel in March 2009 and is partnered with Steve Ray, who signed up in December 2007. Prior to Auditel, Power-Browne worked for a UK charity as the Overseas Programme Manager responsible for a wide range of projects based in Eastern Europe. She said: “Since becoming an Auditel Consultant, I have been able to use my previous experience and expertise for the benefit of clients, saving them time and money and adding profit to the bottom line by properly managing costs.”

Also at the exhibition Auditel’s Business Development Manager, Edward Brewer, will be presenting two topics: Franchising – the ideal opportunity for self employment, on Friday 2.30pm-3pm; and In business for yourself, but not by yourself, on Saturday 2pm-2.30pm.
