ANY LAB TEST NOW® 2021 Franchisee Conference: New Orleans LIVE!

Who's ready to meet LIVE and in person!? Save the date, plan your travel, book your flight or get the GPS ready. Meet us for the 2021 Franchisee Conference: New Orleans LIVE! This event is bound to look a bit different but we aim to meet together again face to face! For this event, one significant difference is the schedule; Thursday will be reserved for Boot Camp action, Friday for ALL General Sessions and Saturday for ALL Breakouts! Plan to join us for the Welcome & Check In event to  meet up in person and gear up for conference sessions scheduled for Thursday afternoon after the Boot Camp action!

The Sponsor Exhibit lives on and we're hopeful for a good turnout from our valued partners. Back by popular demand, with an 89% engagement rate at the 2020 Virtual Franchisee Conference, the conference app will lead the way for organization, information, and fun interaction to set this event apart and keep you in the know! Each 'VIP' ticket to the Franchisee Conference includes access to dynamic guest speakers, engaging presenters, special awards ceremony, creative brainstorming, useful interaction with other attendees, engagement with sponsors, cocktail hour and so much more! Of course, since it has been so long since our last event together, we're really looking forward to safely connecting and interacting with one another to discuss topics of interest, brainstorm, and problem solve. Flashback to tried and true favorites, the culminating event will be our Encore: Simply New Orleans where we will wrap up the event's learning and festivities! ______________________________________________________________________________________

And let's try this one more time...Welcome to our Keynote Speaker Cordell Riley! 

Cordell is a top training professional who has spent more than 20 years helping thousands of companies achieve outstanding success. After graduating from Mississippi State University and serving state-side during Desert Shield, Cordell began a career with Driven Brands (owner of Meineke and Maaco). Cordell spent 20 years there, with increasing levels of responsibility for Operations and Training. After overseeing training internally for Driven Brands, Cordell founded Tortal Training in 2000. 

Cordell Riley is now recognized as pioneer who was among the first to focus on the critical role that training plays in cultivating great brands. At Tortal, he assembled a powerhouse team of top training professionals and problem-solvers who have made his company the industry leader in designing training, developing learning solutions, identifying and achieving critical business goals, and other key capabilities.

Cordell currently serves on the Supplier Board for the International Franchise Association (IFA). He has also served on the Educational Foundation of the IFA, the Board of Governs for Institute for Certified Franchise Executives (CFE), the Education Committee of the Automotive Aftermarket Association, and as a Trustee of the Motorist Assurance Program.

Cordell is an active citizen of Charlotte, NC, where he lives with Donna, his wife and two children in college. He describes himself as a “Huge Carolina Panthers fan.” When he is not busy being a husband and parenting, speaking, or watching his team win, you can find him pampering his classic Jeep Grand Wagoneer or fishing.


The insightful and delightful Rod Bristol, from Profit Soup, will once again join us to focus on financial efforts, including Zeewise, to grow your business with a new program called “Blueprint for Growth”. Let's explore the strategic financial decisions and business milestones required to accelerate profitable growth through three possible pathways: organic growth (core business), add-on services, and territory expansion. And we'll practice assessing the return on investment of potential growth opportunities and determine the sales needed to earn a return on your investment. Rod will also help us to outline a process for identifying the financing your business needs and arm you with strategies for getting the lender to say, “YES!" As with all his programs, Rod will customize this session to Any Lab Test Now. If you haven't taken advantage of sessions by Rod before, now is your chance. A recording of the Virtual Franchisee Conference session is available on the University Training Portal and will lay a good groundwork before the next session "Blueprint for Growth".
