NexGoal president and CEO Kevin Dahl will head to New Orleans, LA for the 2014 IFA Convention. Sponsored by the International Franchising Association, the five-day event will feature educational sessions, networking events, in-depth panels, and a panel of top notch speakers.
Held at the New Orleans Convention Center, the IFA Convention features a full schedule of educational sessions addressing topics ranging from financing, customer service, suppliers, legislation, and business development. Keynote speakers include former Secretary of Defense and CIA Director Leon Panetta, the CEO of AFC Enterprises Inc. Cheryl Bachelder, and the managing director of global channel sales for Google Todd Rowe.
Once again, NexGoal will join fellow athlete franchisors as the Professional Athlete Franchising Initiative (PAFI) will offer new member enrollment and host a breakout session, “Best Practices: Pairing Athletes With Good Operators,” scheduled for Monday, February 24 at 10:15 a.m.
“As a charter member of PAFI, I’m looking forward to sharing my experience as a franchisor with fellow athletes,” said Dahl. “The IFA Convention always has something new for those of us in the industry. The educational and networking aspect of these five days will generate momentum for NexGoal as we continue to grow.”
