Conversations on Franchising
June 23, 2015
Hosted by Luis Vicente Garcia
Franchising has been since the 50’s and 60’s one of the fastest ways of growing any business in any industry. Worldwide brands use franchising as their growing formula. We will go from understanding the basics of franchising, what it is and how it works, to understanding what is required to be a successful franchisor and franchisee. Our guest is Abel Calvo, Executive President of PROFRANQUICIAS, the Venezuelan Franchise Chamber and we will be talking about franchising in general, the role of a Franchise Chamber, the current situation of the Franchising development in Venezuelan and other Latin American countries. Other topics will include the stages in franchising that go from the early beginnings when foreign companies enter a local market, to the development of local companies which use franchising as their expansion business format until the final stage when local franchises enter the international arena.

As a Business Performance Coach I am constantly looking for new ways to help business owners and entrepreneurs. My desire has been to reach out to people who are eager to listen to a message of positive attitude and motivation in today’s busy and changing world mixed with new business ideas and insights to reach higher levels of performance.
When we combine the enthusiasm we all have with the business skills and abilities a person needs to grow, learn, prosper, they become better people and better professionals; and in the way, they are transformed into better managers and leaders.
My goal is to be able to inspire and motivate those who want to learn new managerial skills, increase their level of performance, and have a message of optimism and possibilities to motivate their teams to achieve their goals faster, leading the path to a successful journey.
