“I am convinced that whoever created the business model for Appleton Greene, must have been thinking of the Franchise industry, because their corporate training programs are ideal for franchisors and franchisees. A franchisor wants to sell their brand and a successful tried and tested business model, but they do not want in any way to be involved in the management of a franchisee’s business. Therefore the more that they can outsource the better, including training. The problem with this approach of course is that quality management becomes more difficult, because they have to adopt a decentralized approach which can result in a loss of focus. This is why franchisors love Appleton Greene’s corporate training programs because they can outsource the training and the management and support responsibility. I have developed 2 standard programs and a number of bespoke programs now for this industry and have employed my own internal consultants to implement them. This leaves me with time for developing new programs, which I love to do, because it feeds my passion for creativity.”
