Last year our Corporate and Commercial Department was invited to make presentations to the Franchise Acceleration Start Up Training (FAST) Programme, National Franchise Centre at Limerick Institute of Technology, O’Connell Street Campus. We presented on a number of issues including consumer law and key issues arising in franchise agreements.
This year George Kennedy, a solicitor in our Corporate and Commercial Department, is to present to the current year’s FAST programme on 12th December 2011 and 16th January 2012.
The National Franchise Centre is Europe’s first centre of excellence for franchise development. Six month training programmes are provided on franchise opportunities in Ireland and elsewhere by the National Franchise Centre. The FAST Programme was launched by Limerick Institute of Technology in partnership with Limerick Chamber of Commerce.
