Franchisee Application:

There are MANY benefits and rewards being a Dale Carnegie franchisee. There are also some realities that we would like you to explore before submitting your application.
 
Please take a moment to review and respond to these questions as they will cover some of the core requirements.
 

Business Acumen:

Successful Dale Carnegie franchisees are credible business people sharing business ideas and solutions with other business people. Those that have a strong performance record in sales/leadership and/or business ownership will find this a rewarding element of the role.
 
Is there anything about this requirement that would make it unlikely you could fulfill this role?
 

Business Development:

Successful Dale Carnegie franchisees have the ability to create strong client relationships but also consistently prospect for new business. The ability to develop new business is extremely important and will include very proactive business development tactics like industry specific cold calling.
 
Is there anything about this that would make it unlikely that you would want to do this level of business development?
 

Exclusivity:

Successful Dale Carnegie franchisees are fully and exclusively committed to their Carnegie operation – it is a full time role. It is critical that our franchisees are only representing the Dale Carnegie brand and would not be engaged in any competitive businesses or activities.
 
Is there anything about this requirement that would affect your ability to fully commit to the franchise opportunity?
 

Pay for Performance:

Successful Dale Carnegie franchisees are excited to create their own income and enjoy an environment where they control their income potential. This also means that a static income is not something our franchisees should expect. Those that follow our business strategies, sales process and work diligently can do very well financially, but a variable income is not for everyone.
 
Is there anything about variable pay that would make it unlikely for you want this role?
 

Variable Work Schedule:

Successful Dale Carnegie franchisees find the need to work evenings and weekends in order to attend trade functions, training events, meetings and other sales and business related functions in their community.
 
Is there anything about your obligations that would make you un-available for this type of variable work schedule?
 

Client Confidentiality:

Our clients may have certain requirements of our people from a legal and liability point of view. For that reason we require that our people have a clean criminal history and must be bondable.
 
Is there anything about your history or a criminal record that might affect your selection for this role?
 
If you would like more information or would like to meet to discuss further, please contact Mr Jean-Louis Van Doorne, Regional Vice President EMEA at   jvandoorne@dalecarnegie.com
