8 years of success with Auditel
In the eight years since becoming an Auditel franchise owner Peter Lawrence has built up a successful, award winning business. Lawrence joined Auditel, a cost and purchase management franchise, in 2002 following a sales-oriented career that included 15 years in IT.
Lawrence said: "I was impressed with the courtesy and transparency of the company from my first enquiry to actually signing the franchise agreement. The quality of the initial and ongoing training and support is excellent. There are comprehensive manuals, a company intranet, local and regional meetings, annual conferences, and association with over 170 like-minded colleagues. Everything is to hand to build a profitable and enjoyable business."
Lawrence has been very successful in acquiring and servicing clients, as well as working on joint ventures with his colleagues. He has achieved successful assignments with many different types of clients - independent schools, charities, accountants, retail chains, nurseries, distribution, NHS hospital manufacturing and servicing, insurance, and barristers' chambers.
In 2007, Lawrence was awarded the 'Auditel Award for Excellence' for his hard work in building a successful all-round business and for sharing information with his fellow Affiliates seeking help. At last years' National Conference, Lawrence was named as 'The Auditel Franchisee of the Year,' the highest award in the network.
