Here to Help! Resources

Love the perspective that…

…this is a time for ‘physical’ distancing, AND deep and meaningful social connection & support!

In a whole-hearted effort to help the franchise community and in collaboration with our valued speaker partners, SPEAK! is pulling together a free resource page on our website called “Here to Help!”. Our hope is:

  1. To help franchisors keep their system healthy and lead and support internal teams.
  2. To provide tool to franchisors to share with their franchisees including strategies and tips which can be applied at the unit level.
  3. To give franchisees tools to share with their own front-line teams NOW!

While we’re putting the final touches on our web page, it occurred to us that the tools we have ready to share need not wait—the community need is now and ongoing.

Please utilize the ideas and clips posted here in whatever way is helpful–circulate among your leadership teams, your staff, your franchisees or send it system-wide. We will let you know as more content is available, as it continues to come in.
