Rosemary Conley Training Convention well attended

Rosemary Conley Diet and Fitness Clubs, the bfa's Franchisor of the Year 2005, recently staged its Training Convention. Held at Center Parcs, Nottinghamshire, the convention attracted 139 franchisees and their employees to take advantage of the free, comprehensive training programme.

Subjects covered ranged from Choreography and Motivational Skills to Business and Marketing coaching and included presentations from health and fitness industry experts such as Professor Kevin Sykes, Matt Barker and Cherry Baker.

Says Rosemary Conley CBE: 'We pride ourselves on the level of support we offer our franchisees and the annual Training Convention is just one example of the high quality training we provide. We were delighted to see that the majority of our franchisees attended this event, which will be of great benefit to their business and their members.'

36-year old mother of three Sarah Skelton has run the Norwich & District franchise for the past eight years: 'The advantages of franchising with a well-known name such as Rosemary Conley are enormous. You already have people who are aware of Rosemary, her formula of diet and exercise is excellent, and you get great support from the team to help build your success.'

Sarah has built a sound, profitable business and has found that running her franchise fits in well with family life. Sarah genuinely loves her job and takes great pride in the help and support she gives to members, several of whom have been with her for the past eight years.
