Suzie’s journey in franchising began 17 years ago, when straight out of university, she grew her own ink cartridge retail brand from a single store in Edinburgh into a network of around 70 franchised outlets across six countries including the Middle East and Caribbean.
In an industry that was dominated by middle aged men, Suzie stood out; not just for her success at a relatively young age, but for her work ethic and sheer determination to win in business on her own terms. Many years, and many successful businesses later, Suzie still stands out as one of the leading lights of her industry. Indeed, as a recent speaker at the British Franchise Associations’ Woman in Franchising event, she is proud to now see a much more gender balanced industry with many more young people achieving incredible financial success through franchising.
In 2011, Suzie set up international franchise consultancy Platinum Wave. Her company offers a huge range of services to both successful entrepreneurs looking to expand their businesses through franchising, and established franchise brands looking to enter new markets around the world. Suzie also brokers deals for successful, well-funded individuals wanting to invest in master franchise partnerships that enable them to bring established international brands into their country of choice, and roll out lucrative, large scale operations relatively quickly.
Suzie is fully accredited by the British Franchise Association, is Chairperson of the Scottish Franchise Forum, and is regularly invited to speak at industry events and join judging panels for awards such as HSBC’s Franchisor of the Year.

This is what people have to say about our club
As a member since October 2016, I am continually impressed with the format of the monthly events, I have not missed one yet. The opportunity cost is too high! Invaluable, Pre and Post meeting networking with members, guests and international visitors.
Plus to spice it all up “speed” networking opportunities during the meeting, fabulous inspiring keynote speakers, monthly discussion and content to enhance Business Blueprint.
Ample opportunity to connect with life-changing professionals.
