The modern business world is more complex and than ever before. It’s also growing at a faster rate than ever before, with new businesses and industries popping up seemingly every day. It’s hard to compete in this dynamic environment, especially when you think of it on a global scale. The problem is that the world is becoming flatter than ever before and smaller and smaller businesses are having to compete with large international corporations. This has given rise to a booming consultancy industry with professional consultants being some of the highest paid in the business world. Professional consultants handle a wide variety of tasks and responsibilities and businesses rely on them for an outside perspective and track record of success.
For Dr. Maurice Roussety, enhancing business performance through expert advice is both his career and an academic interest. He holds an undergraduate degree from Monash University in Economics. A Masters of Business Administration and Masters of Leadership from the University of New England in New South Wales, as well as a Ph.D. in intellectual property and franchise-business valuation from Griffith University in Queensland. He created the Franchise Risk Imputation Model (FRIM), which establishes a framework based on two cornerstones: risk-free rate and total risk as measured by the sum of market specific and company specific risks. He has also written a PhD thesis titled “An Integrated Economic Model for the Evaluation of Franchise Systems – A Synthesis of Agency and Finance Theories.”
This strong background in academics has made Maurice Roussety one of the most sought after consultants in Australia. He has consulted with Westpac, Optus, IAG, ACCC, Australia Post, and Coles Myer. He also works as an Executive Consultant DST Advisory and Lecturer in Small Business, Franchising, Entrepreneurship, and Marketing at Griffith University in Queensland, Australia. He has helped a number of companies around the world with their franchising needs.
To Dr. Maurice Roussety, keeping ahead in the franchising stakes is about having the right professional advice. In Australia alone, franchises generate revenues in excess of $144 billion and directly employ more than 460,000 Australians through over a thousand franchise systems. This means they are not only a secure option for new business professionals; they are also an extremely lucrative one.
