Welcome to my Blog Page. These posts seek to cover the broad panoply of issues, conundrums and thoughts that occupy the professional service entrepreneur’s mind.

A combination of extracts from my guides and current musings (often provoked by recent happenings at the great companies I now advise to), my aim is to inform and motivate all those who seek to build high performing teams and successful businesses.

I also enjoy responding to specific reader questions … so please feedback and let me know where you would like my mental meanderings to wander to next.

Five-Year Entrepreneur Retreat 2017 | Wed 05 to Fri 07 July

30 May, 2017 at 13:57

Now in it’s fourth year, the initial idea for these Retreats came some time back when then earliest readers of the Series asked me if I was planning any events. Truth be told I wasn’t … but after a further survey of the 5YE membership revealed a real appetite for such a forum … planning got underway.

Who is it for?

These events – capped to 14 attendees – is for ambitious owner managers of professional service firms (or those seriously considering starting-up such a venture). During the Retreat, you will explore in some detail the action steps required to build value into your business – such that it will, ultimately, provide you with the option for a life-changing, value-realisation-event and personal financial freedoms beyond.

It is for you if you have serious intent to grow such a business and would value the opportunity to learn from, and contribute to, a forum of such like-minded peers.

What will it involve?

In the comfort of an award-winning, luxury country hotel, and as facilitated by myself, the Retreat will have a full agenda consisting of the following elements:

(1) Working sessions/discussions on key modules of The Five-Year Entrepreneur Series/Model e.g. The Fundamental Components of Value, Business Planning, Marketing, Selling, Building a High-Performing Team, Business Organisation, Service Propositions, Thought Leadership etc.

(2) Practical sessions focused on developing/refining your own firm’s growth business plan

(3) Case Study Discussions

(4) Peer Support Sessions (sharing and co-reviewing key growth challenges you face in your business right now)

(5) Expert Guest Speakers

(6) Social moments (don’t worry there will be some time between working sessions to relax!)

What makes this event different and special?

Getting from where you are now to a point where your professional service business has life-changing value is, self-evidentially, not an easy process.

To build such a firm requires (a) pragmatic knowledge of where value lies and the systems required to develop such success, (b) the inclination/motivation to tread the ‘hard miles’ of this value-build journey, and, (c) access to experienced advice/support en route.

Uniquely, this event will aim to address all three critical areas – specifically targeted at entrepreneurs of professional service companies (consulting, financial, engineering, legal, design firms etc).

In an intense two-day event, I will cover the core aspects of my experience (singleton start-up-to-sale of Moorhouse for c. £20m in under five-years) as covered in The Five-Year Entrepreneur Series. Additionally, you will benefit from the impressive calibre, and experience, of fellow entrepreneurs at the event. Capped to a select peer group, I guarantee a high-energy, motivating event that will leave you raring to get back to your new/revised business plans.

Finally, harnessing such a select forum of like-minded attendees, the event will also initiate a professional mutual-support construct … enabling you to receive on-going support/advice in the months and years ahead.

Please contact me here to reserve one of the final places (or to register interest in future presentations – now run annually).
