After the first and second events, BizPartner organized its third business collaboration event on 30th September 2014. As per before, the organizer invited a main speaker to share a topic, and a few participants to share about themselves.
6 members kicked off the BizPartner.MY – The Truths in Franchising session by introducing about their businesses for 5 minutes each. The presenters included self-employed, salespeople, restaurateur and speaker.
After the half-hour peer sharing, the main speaker came in to deliver her topic in the BizPartner.MY event. She was none other than Sofia Leong Abdullah, renown consultant, trainer and author in franchising in Malaysia.
Having worked with a number of companies and consulted many in the franchising industry, Sofia was about to launch her new book Sofia Leong Abdullah’s Guide to Franchising to contribute to the know-how of setting up and running a franchise in Malaysia.
In the 30-minute sharing session, Sofia addressed some issues on franchising, shared some challenges not included in her book, and took on questions from the attentive crowd listening to her talk.
