Fantastic Support Received By Auditel Consultant Declan Quinn
Declan Quinn, former Head of Food Services for Kraft in Ireland, joined the Auditel Cost Management Franchise in September 2012. When he was investigating franchise opportunities, Declan said: “I wanted an organisation that knew exactly where it was going and knew how to get there. It was clear that Auditel were showing innovation in the marketplace and, more importantly, they offered something that was unique. The whole network of support and the Affiliates that fed into their set-up was absolutely bang on and professional. That for me was something which resonated.
“In particular, the assistance and coaching for a non-sales person has been excellent. Their guidance on researching organisations and establishing sound industry and market knowledge is key. The business manuals have been instrumental in helping me to manage the needs and objections of my prospects.”
At this month’s Auditel National Conference, after only eight weeks in the network, Declan was awarded the prestigious ‘Flying Start’ award for the most promising newcomer. He has an astonishing €1.2m of costs under audit, seven clients and 21 projects in hand.
“Organisations in Ireland are beginning to know why they need Auditel as their outsourced partner”, Declan reports. “One client remarked that my mobile telephone project was ‘the best in class and I want to send a copy to my MD!’. Their recommendations and referrals will further add to Auditel’s success in Ireland.”
On receiving the award, Declan enthused: “My wife and I would like to express our thanks to everyone in the Auditel network and head office for the fantastic support we have received since joining the network. We now understand why Auditel won the ‘bfa HSBC Franchisor of the Year Award for Outstanding Franchisee Support’!
“As was high-lighted at the Conference, good things come in three! These are the three I selected which make Auditel stand-out from the crowd:
- The best training - It never ends and keeps developing.
- The best analysis tools - They are continually being up-graded.
- The best industry knowledge for each category - Industry knowledge that continues to be developed.
“We know that we have made the right choice in selecting the Auditel business model. In addition, I want to express my thanks to everyone who proposed me to receive the award. We are both thrilled and humbled by the experience.”
