In 2015, the FCA launched a peer support network for CEOs, MDs and GMs of Australian franchise companies.
This is the only CEO organisation in Australia which specialises in the world of franchising. It is run under the auspices of the peak body which represents more than 500 of the major franchisors and their franchisees in this country.
The FCA Chief Executive Syndicate provides an opportunity for CEOs and MDs of franchising companies to meet regularly in a confidential environment to discuss issues relevant to their businesses. They learn from visiting speakers and from each other. Each syndicate group is chaired by a person with the following:
✔ Industry credibility and deep understanding of the franchising sector
✔ Contemporary knowledge and global engagement with sector trends, innovation, and technology
✔ Highly developed capacity to facilitate and chair group discussions, including the ability to actively listen and respond to feedback
✔ Commitment to improving the standing of franchising in Australia, and a strong grasp of the issues, challenges and opportunities presented
✔ Highly developed network of contacts in the sector, including the ability to identify and secure guest presenters who are nationally and globally recognised in areas of expertise that are relevant to CES members
“I joined the Sydney CES as an inaugural member and have found the group to be of great benefit. The CES group provides a framework for confidential discussions, whereby your non-competitive peers are able to share their thoughts openly.”

“Learning from those that are fulfilling industry best-practice has been incredibly beneficial for me. To be able to see the thought processes and strategic vision that other members have for how they grow their businesses within their industries has been enlightening.”
