As part of the mission of Oven Wizards to get together, share ideas and best practice, build relationships and network within the company, they got together recently for their annual conference at Stratford-upon Avon, with many franchisees spanning the breadth of the UK coming together.
The event was run by John Graham and Mark Abbott, managing directors and co-owners of Oven Wizards respectively. This year the theme was ‘Be happy… Be Social’, with subjects covering operations, sales, and service, with a major focus on social media, particularly Facebook. Discussions around social media focused on how to engage the local area, what components you need to make relatable and engaging content and how positive social sentiment can massively boost your brand, with a guest speaker on hand to give hints and tips.
Patrick Feerick, a franchisee from Bedfordshire, was enthusiastic about the conference: “As always it was great to catch up on news from my ‘fellow wizards’. It was all most enjoyable and useful.”
Colin Hadley, Oven Wizard in Hereford, said: “The conference was really helpful and really enjoyable once again. I’ve got loads of great stuff to take back and use in my business.”
The event also included an evening meal, where people could continue to network in an informal manner.
Mark Abbott, Managing Director, stated: “It was great to see all our wizards getting together again. It’s really good to hear how well they are all doing in their chosen territories.”
