It's not easy running your own business when ultimately, the buck stops with you! It can also be a lonely, isolating and sometimes frustrating place to be.
The Coaching Circle brings you together with up to 3 other businesses, looking at the issues and opportunities that your business faces - taking action to overcome the issues and capitalise on the opportunities.
The monthly meetings last 2 hours and each business gets their half an hour of "fame" to focus on their business; reviewing actions from the previous meeting, discussing the current state of affairs within their business and taking actions to move the business forward over the next month.
It is an opportunity to experience peer-to-peer engagement, facilitated by an experienced business advisor, mentor and coach that will help your business grow and be more profitable.
What you'll get
- A forum to bring your business ideas, opportunities and issues to
- Feedback from your peers - exploring, engaging and finding solutions to move your business forward
- A better understanding of where your business is heading
- Objectives that you want to achieve and how you are going to get there
What this means
Meeting regularly ensures that you are held to account and that actions are implemented in an effective way.
All meetings are safe and confidential and there will be only one representation per industry sector, so that you can feel comfortable sharing about your business.
Plus, in between meetings, you have telephone and email support should anything crop up or you get stuck! All part of the package!
And there's more
- This is not training
- No workbooks
- Focus is on your business, in the moment
- Not formulaic - bespoke advice relevant to your business
- No jargon/spiel - straight talking
- Action-based development
- Confidentiality maintained
- Supportive & welcoming environment
So is this going to break the bank? Hardly! It's just £75 per month (cancel any time, no contract)
The Business Community has been extremely helpful to my business. The meetings are well run - they have a well-defined structure, but have a good mix of formality and informality. I enjoy meeting other members, have made some good connections, got great business advice from Paul and the wider group and, last but not least, gained work whose value is several times the cost of membership.Mark Coster - Pixooma
Professional environment and extremely friendly. We have plenty of recommendations and customers from networking hence the reason to go further with this group. Various locations to choose from and on top of this, there's always a warm welcome from Paul.Victor Petrescu - Storefirst
I enjoyed my first meeting at The Business Community. The atmosphere was friendly and welcoming. Anyone new to networking would feel comfortable from the outset. The agenda was enjoyable, but business-like and informative. It was interesting to learn about all the other businesses around the table, and they showed a genuine interest in my business. What stood out for me was when we broke for a 10 minute 121 with another individual. That was a chance to establish a real connection with someone else in the room.Robin Kirkley - Vizeo Media
In the short time I’ve been a member, The Business Community has transformed my business and I’ve met some fantastic contacts along the way. Paul Green and Stephen Church are excellent hosts and bring great charm and personality into the meeting. Highly recommended to any business - whether starting out or established.Sam Sayer - DeType Limited
