The benefits

The systematic approach and 'top tips' presented in this series will give business owners confidence that they are building in value from the start. Closely followed, this guidance will take your business quickly to a high valuation.


The guides have been of enormous, practical help. They have brought hugely valuable clarity, focus, and creative ideas to our business; just as importantly, they've helped re-energise us at critical times in our development.

Nick Fletcher, Director, Vivendi Consulting (Australia)

Informative, practical, inspirational, based as it is on the genuine experience of someone who has done what it says on the tin.

Giles Johnson, Director, CIL

Wonderfully logical and coherent guides marrying textbook theory, working models, actual experience and the all-important human side of the challenge.

Rupert Tobin, Director, 100%Cotton Ltd.

Dom has absolutely captured the need to manage the growth of a business like a project with clear objectives and deliverables, supported by robust and effective systems.

Paul Wilson, Managing Director, Provelio Limited

These guides are essential reading for anyone setting up in business, particularly in the field of professional services. I strongly recommend them.

Bob Hendicott, Hendicott Partnership Ltd

If running a successful consultancy or small business is your aspiration then this practical, ‘how to’ set of guides is highly recommended.

Tanya Lightbody, Director, Ingenuity Inspired Limited

Dom has condensed a wealth of critical experience, anecdotes and advice into a really practical, concise set of guides ... relevant for any aspiring professional services owner or frankly those of us who have been doing this for a few years!

Andy Marsh, Managing Director, Suiko Ltd

I found the Five-Year Entrepreneur Guides an excellent summary of the practical solutions required to building a successful, small-to-medium-sized consulting business. I can see them becoming a well thumbed text.

Tim Phillips, Global Partner, Molten and winner of the London and South East IOD Director of the year 2012

This set of guide modules would have saved us years in terms of the journey, £000s in terms of avoiding the common pitfalls and a head full of grey hair in terms of frustration!

Pete Austin, Director, Suiko Limited
