James Corne commenced his career in marketing for Oracle Systems before gaining broader experience in sales and marketing in various organisations including the Canadian Consulate, Telstra and Scitec.
In 1998 James left the corporate world and started a successful IT business building up high profile clients including AGL and Toyota Finance.
In 2000 James entered the Franchise and distribution industry. He started a number of franchise organisations however he quickly realised the lack of information and professional support available in this industry. James started to research franchising extensively, hiring business coaches, franchise experts and franchise lawyers. He then began to document the methods he found worked best for franchisors. Through many successes and a few failures, he has gained a wealth of knowledge and experience on both what to do and what not to do in franchising. His marketing experience and knowledge has helped him succeed in this industry.
James has a Master of Commerce in Marketing from the University of New South Wales and a Bachelor of Business in Marketing from Mitchell College.
During his time at university James was awarded the Leighton Holdings Scholarship for Economic Achievement, an exchange scholarship to Oregon State University in the United States where he completed his undergraduate degree and while there was awarded a Masters Scholarship to the University of Nevada.
Through James’ detailed knowledge and actual experience of the franchise industry he has advised and mentored many business owners on how to successfully franchise their business. James is grateful for the outstanding relationship he has with many of his clients and derives great satisfaction from watching as their franchised businesses grow from strength to strength.
