One of the best things about the most recent Smith’s owner’s seminar was the chance to meet the other school owners for the first time. Both Mike and I have only recently become owners, so it was essential that we visited another school to chat with the owners about issues relating to marketing, curriculum use etc.
So, early on Wednesday we headed to Ohtsu and visited both Ed and Chiharu from Smith’s School of English, Ohtsu. We met at Ohtsu station, assisted them with flyers before going to their school. Mike and I were highly impressed with their school, future plans and hospitality.
To be able to call and/or receive calls from fellow owners to discuss ideas and trends really highlights the high level of teamwork that the Smith franchise school system encourages, and this fantastic cooperation between owners typifies the advantages of joining an established school system in Japan.
Once again, I would like to thank both Ed and Chiharu for your wonderful hospitality, and I hope that we can repay this on your next visit to Tsuruhashi, well done guys!
