Expert biography

Pam is a Franchise Consultant with The Franchising Centre, she has nearly 25 years experience within franchising, having worked across many different franchise sectors in that time. The last 7 years have been with The Franchising Centre, which is a multi-disciplined team of specialist consultants who work individually and collectively on behalf of clients on licensing and franchise projects in the UK and Internationally.

Pam is a Qualified Franchise Professional (QFP) awarded by the British Franchise Association of which she is a member. She has also undertaken project managing and mentoring courses to ensure she works in a professional and focussed way with clients to support their licence/franchise projects to fruition.

The goal is always to ‘support’ the client business to become a good licensor/franchisor and take the project from the germ of a growth idea and put into practice and with a hands-on and practical approach actually make it happen.

Pam has worked mainly with businesses in the Southeast but has The Franchising Centre colleagues across the UK.
