Recap IPAL Event London



An interview of Simon Denton (Sovereign Group) with Gerrit Stroomann (Expandeers) on:

Evaluating the weakening national economy as an opportunity for international growth


  • The state of the UK economy in comparison with other Western markets
  • How Britain can overcome the downturn in economy
  • Overview of domestic and global growth options for SME: chances in Europe, Middle East and beyond for British companies
  • Pragmatic approaches to access new markets: trust is the basis
  • Pitfalls in internationalization: some cases on how not to do it

On 6th February our MD Gerrit Stroomann held a speech on the state of British economy and options in international business to get around Brexit hangover and overcome an economically unfavorable situation of the UK.

The introductory speech and following interview between Simon Denton of Sovereign Group and Gerrit D. Stroomann, Managing Partner of Expandeers Global Group, discussed the weakening national economy of the United Kingdom as an opportunity for international growth. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) recently announced that the G7 countries will experience GDP growth this calendar year, with the exception of the United Kingdom (-0.6%) majorly due to the impacts of Brexit that are adding to the cost of COVID-19, and the invasion of Ukraine by Russia and associated issues. The interview focuses on the options for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and larger corporates in terms of market entry and expansion in the European Union, starting with Germany as an idea.


The recent complications due to Brexit have made it difficult for SMEs to expand their business across the EU and the UK. A recent survey by the British Chambers of Commerce found that half of 500 SMEs asked are struggling with current European exports, and the difficulty of obtaining visas for employees and supplies from mainland Europe. The Economic & Social Research Institute in Dublin reported a 16% decline in UK exports and a 20% decline in EU exports to the UK due to Brexit. The UK has also seen a 25% decline in investment from the EU.

Expanding to Middle East successfully

Expanding to Dubai and the Middle East


Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) play a crucial role in driving economic growth and innovation in any region. For businesses looking to expand their operations into the Middle East, there are many opportunities and challenges to consider.

One of the key advantages of expanding into the Middle East is the region's strong economic growth. Many countries in the region have experienced significant increases in GDP in recent years, and this trend is expected to continue in the future. This provides a solid foundation for businesses looking to enter the market.

Another key advantage is the region's strategic location. The Middle East is home to some of the world's busiest trade routes, making it an ideal location for businesses looking to tap into the global market. In addition, the region's proximity to major markets such as Europe, Asia, and Africa makes it an attractive location for businesses looking to expand their operations on a global scale.

However, expanding into the Middle East also presents a number of challenges. One of the key challenges is the diverse nature of the region, with each country having its own unique cultural, economic, and political landscape. This can make it difficult for businesses to navigate and understand the local market.

Another challenge is the lack of a unified legal framework across the region. This can make it difficult for businesses to understand and comply with the various legal requirements in different countries.

In order to overcome these challenges, businesses looking to expand into the Middle East should consider seeking the advice of local experts or consulting firms. These experts can provide valuable insights into the local market and help businesses navigate the legal and regulatory landscape.

In conclusion, expanding into the Middle East presents both opportunities and challenges for SMEs. However, with the right strategies and support, businesses can succeed in this dynamic and rapidly-growing region.

Spreading your Franchise Brand globally

The success of any franchise system depends significantly on the success of the individual franchise owners. That’s why franchisors carefully vet candidates to gauge interest, skill set and enthusiasm, among many other factors. The process of determining whether a prospective franchisee is a good fit is one that franchisors must take very seriously. 


Franchisors typically have a multi-step “discovery” process in place so that they cover all their bases. These include webinars, in-person and virtual tours of the home office and franchise locations (if applicable), review of the franchise disclosure document (known as an FDD), interviews with other franchisees and the corporate team, plus Q&A sessions. Sounds like a lot of work, right? That’s because it is.


So, it makes sense that franchisors want to start the process with candidates who are serious about franchise ownership, already know how much they can afford and have an interest and understanding of the brand.


The top sources of franchise deals include franchise referral consultants (aka brokers) and organic referrals (family, friends, associates and customers). It makes sense: By coming from a referral source, the candidate likely already knows a lot about the brand, its pros and cons and what’s involved in owning the business.


Finding A Fit For Your Franchise


While some franchisors rely heavily on referrals from franchise consultants, others are more focused on using web portals or exhibiting at shows. Keep in mind there’s no right or wrong way to approach finding potential franchisees, so consider using a combination of recruiting methods to cover your bases.  Once a suitable candidate is identified, both you and the prospective franchisee should get to know each other to see if the fit is good. Culture can play a big role. Some brands, for example, are faith-based. If the candidate isn’t religious, it might not be ideal for either party. As a franchisor, you want franchisees who buy into the concept, the culture and the business model — and are excited about it. If you see a half-hearted interest, the candidate is not likely to work out, no matter how qualified they are financially.


Like with any team, a franchise system will always have a few top performers, franchisees who consistently reach their goals and others who may struggle. Just as a good coach wants all of their players to succeed, so does the franchisor. The best way to do that is by starting with the right people. That’s why you will often hear that a franchisor “awards” territory rather than “sells” it. Steve Jobs had it right when he said, “Quality is more important than quantity. One home run is much better than two doubles.”
