Marbella becomes a centre for innovation in English learning
From the 2nd to the 5th of April 2019, 200 Master Franchisees from 34 countries are coming to Marbella to attend the Annual Helen Doron Franchise Conference. Helen Doron Educational Group was recently awarded with Best Children’s & Education category in the Global Franchise Awards 2019, and a large team from corporate headquarters, together with franchisees from all over the world, will be celebrating the honour. The annual conference offers a full programme of business presentations and workshops, break-out sessions and fun activities, as well as sharing ideas and successes to further empower the international network.
Founder and CEO Helen Doron says, “We chose to have this years’ annual conference in beautiful Marbella as we have such a strong presence in Spain. Andalucía, in particular, has 35 learning centers and more in the planning stages. We are specifically focused on strategic growth in areas where there is a need for excellent English-as-a-Foreign-Language (EFL) programmes for children. This includes Marbella and beyond. Although we already have nearly 20,000 students in Spain, there are still many areas we are planning to develop. We are excited about giving even more children in Spain the gift of learning English easily and naturally through our unique methodology. We are also happy to provide career opportunities throughout the country to additional professionals who are interested in becoming part of our global network.”
Helen Doron employs 130 staff in Andalucia and currently teaches over 5,300 students from pre-school to high school. This significant conference gathers passionate business people, as well as their spouses, from around the world, generating hotel bookings and attendees enjoying the area’s restaurants and tourist attractions.
The international franchise prides itself on offering “More than English. Values for Life”. The network not only has proven success in teaching nearly 3 million students in 37 countries, but the brand stands for values such as tolerance, contributing to the community, protecting the environment and respecting cultural differences which are major themes throughout the programmes.
Angela Sanchez, Master Franchisor Andalucía, Extremadura & Murcia adds, “Mastery of English opens the doors to the global marketplace, building bridges to other cultures. Fluent English is an essential tool in competing in a highly competitive business environment and in tourist destinations such as Marbella it is even more important.”
Parents and children wanting to learn English can access free learning materials including TeenBuzz 24/7 online radio, games and activities online on KangiClub and a wide assortment of educational apps.
