##Geared For Success With 5-Year Mentor Support
According to the Franchise Training Centre, “the success of your business is dependent on the performance of your franchisees. This in turn is largely dependent on your ability to choose, train and support them. In short, the ability of your team has a material impact on the success of your business.
At [Auditel](/archive/auditel/auditel-franchise.php), we have refined and developed our training and support of new and existing franchisees throughout our 21 years of trading. We offer commercial and business mentoring, sales and marketing, professional and personal development – all tailored to the needs of each franchisee.
Matt Sidwell, Auditel’s Network Business Development Director, heads probably the largest training and support team in UK franchising. This includes 45 trainers and mentors plus the support of 200 colleagues, many of whom are specialists in a multitude of commercial and business activities.
Sidwell commented: “We have introduced our award-winning 5-year Mentoring Programme which is leading the way in franchise training development. We cover the field for new franchisees whatever their previous experience, through this programme, our unique Auditel Business Management System intranet and regular and local meetings.
Declan Quinn who joined Auditel in September 2012, said: “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.
“My revenues have doubled and I’m getting a lot of new clients. People are calling to work with me and they are seeing what I’m doing and how it can help them. I wanted something that had the ability to give me the support, tools and confidence to grow a successful business. Auditel have done just that.”
Sidwell continued: “As the Winner of the bfa-HSBC Franchisor of the Year Award for Outstanding Franchisee Support in 2012, our programmes were commended. In addition our Fast Track Sales and Marketing Programme is geared to accelerate the signing of new clients. This is supported by a team of 12 Sales and Marketing Professionals. Auditel has been chosen as finalists for the Franchise Marketing Awards for Outstanding Marketing Support for the past five years.
“We have recently developed a training programme for 30 additional services which produce passive income. Through our market-leading experts in their fields, plus access to our Partnership Programme which consists of professional firms who refer their clients to us, our franchisees can access another source of income. This is particularly useful in the early stage of a business when a newcomer is beginning to make contacts.”
Franchisees Laurence Fitch and partner Ruth Dawe reported: “The training was excellent, quickly allowing us to develop our skills to push the business forward. The benefits we have received from Auditel have been outstanding. To prove a point, we have achieved £1 million of savings for our clients.”
