Antoine Maurice Roussety, Partnership in Franchising
People often say, “it’s not about what you know; it’s about who you know”. This expression speaks to the idea that we have as a society that you cannot get anywhere on your own. No matter how qualified, intelligent, or ambitious, without someone to give you the opportunity to use your strengths, you will never get anywhere in life. Life is not about taking advantage of people and relationships, using them to your advantage in order to get ahead in life. It is about forming mutual beneficial relationships and continuing the trend of extending out a hand to help others. This is true in the professional world and in our personal lives, but regardless of where it is applied, it is a concept that is crucial for moving our society towards a better future.
According to Dr. Maurice Antoine Roussety, moving franchises and brands in to the new age is similar to extending this helping hand for other people. Dr. Maurice Roussety is a finance and marketing expert with a number of academic degrees in business. He holds an undergraduate degree from Monash University in Economics. A Masters of Business Administration and Masters of Leadership from the University of New England in New South Wales, as well as a Ph.D. in intellectual property and franchise-business valuation from Griffith University in Queensland. He has worked as a professional consultant, public speaker, and adviser for a number of businesses around the world. He, more than anyone, understands the important role that having strong business relationships plays in being successful in the long run.
This has been especially noticeable in the work that he has done in analyzing the franchising industry. Franchising is the idea that you can start your own business by opening a branch of an already existing company. This often happens with fast food restaurants and other chains stores that need to open new locations but cannot be managed from internal staffing. The success of a franchise relies on the relationship that the business has with its customers, and the relationship that customers have with the independent stores.
For Dr. Antoine Maurice Roussety, how to turn your company into a franchise is the first consideration for succeeding in today’s business world. In Australia alone, franchises generate revenues in excess of $144 billion and directly employ more than 460,000 Australians through over a thousand franchise systems. Franchises are the best step to securing your professional future.
