Shirley Hughes, Executive Recruitment Consultant, The Franchising Centre
“Having been a member of the BFA for 13 years it is an integral part of my business. Being able to meet with fellow members and talk through what is working or not working in their businesses helps me to keep up-to-date with what is happening in the industry. When the BFA launches new initiatives it is great to be able to join in with the rest of the community and work with the BFA to get their message out and be part of what is important to everyone involved in franchising.”
