Accelerated Start-Up Programme

Aimed at small business owners, sole traders and start-up businesses, this programme gives you all the skills you need to get your small business off to a flying start.

Your accountant will tell you all you need to know about finance and the world is awash with business plan models, but what about the key attributes you need to make it to the top?

Research by The Carnegie Institute discovered that 85% of business success is due to the ability to communicate, negotiate and lead, but shockingly only 15% is due to technical knowledge.

I have put together a programme of eight sessions to give you the basic skills to build solid foundations for your business.

You will learn how to communicate, negotiate and sell effectively, as well as find new clients and create loyal customers.
But you will also get the chance to discover the dark secrets nobody ever tells you about, such as how to run your business like a Blue Chip Corporate, with practical models and tasks you can take away and use straight away.
