What are the current trends in franchising? What are the important business and legal considerations that international franchisors need to understand before expanding into Canada? What key legal decisions have affected how the parties should conduct themselves and what business arrangements should be contained in franchise documents? What are the best practices in resolving franchise disputes at any early stage, including through the use of peer groups, ombudspersons, mediation, arbitration or other alternate dispute resolution techniques. These are a very few of the topics that Frank has addressed at franchise conferences or in written articles or blogs.
As a writer of diverse articles, franchise columnist, speaker at many franchise meetings and conferences, and author and editor of leading franchise texts, Frank has the experience and practical understanding to be a motivational speaker at franchisor or franchisee association meetings or conventions, and to write ongoing articles or columns for franchise publications or internal system newsletters.
