Guest Speaker

Denis McFadden

Founder & CEO of Just Cuts

Denis McFadden is the Founder & CEO of Just Cuts, having turned one hairdressing salon into a franchise empire.

A qualified hairdresser with extensive experience in Sydney and London, Denis recognised a change in client wants and needs. In the early 1980s, he ran a trial promotion for “no appointment, fixed price” style cuts, and the response was overwhelming. Since then, the Just Cuts franchise has continued to expand with over 192 locations across Australia and New Zealand. In 2013, Denis was inducted into the Franchise Council of Australia’s Hall of Fame which honours the franchising sector’s outstanding performers.

Denis will officially launch our first FoundX meetup in Baulkham Hills, sharing his entrepreneurial journey, key learnings, and the secrets to his success!
