Ambitions of business ownership and growth can be pursued at this popular event offering the opportunity to explore a wide spectrum of franchise opportunities, as well as a bounty of expert advice.

Karina Jadhav's presentation on Friday 22 June will be a stand-out feature of the Growing Your Own Business Conference. Co-located with the exhibition, the conference has a focus on business development and success, bringing audiences a combination of practical advice and motivation.

Karina is an independent female restaurant operator and owner, and she was voted Entrepreneur of the Year at the Manchester Downtown Women in Business Awards 2015.

She founded her current concept, Menagerie Restaurant & Bar, Manchester in August 2016 and is the former co-founder and creator of Neighbourhood, Victors Hale and Southern Eleven.

Having done extensive research into the latest dining trends and successes across Europe and the USA, Karina's latest venture, Menagerie, boldly brings together gastronomy, art and performance to create a truly immersive dining experience for its guests.

In her keynote, 'Causing a stir: standing out in a crowded industry', Karina will discuss how she carved her own path in a male-dominated industry and turned her differences into her strengths. She'll share the influences she took from forward thinkers from different industries and her "female" approach to management.

Karina comments: "I firmly believe that if you combine ambition with a rigorously researched concept and a robust business model, then you are on the path to business success. Franchising offers entrepreneurs an already proven concept and established business model 'out of the box'. I look forward to inspiring my audience to channel their ambition and to pursue the business that is right for them."

Karina's presentation forms part of a comprehensive programme of 40 seminars, workshops and one-to-one consultations hosted within The Northern Franchise Exhibition. The two-day event taking place on 22 & 23 June boasts franchise opportunities across all investment levels and sectors.

Every brand exhibiting has been assessed and accredited by the British Franchise Association (bfa) and names include: Fitness Space, Expense Reduction Analysts, Little Dessert Shop, Merry Maids and Tutor Doctor.

The Northern Franchise Exhibition provides entrepreneurs with the perfect opportunity to access expert industry advice, and to perform essential research into franchising, all under one roof.
