    Presenter - Glenn Cameron from ActionCOACH

    Topic - Built to Sell: 8 Things That Drive Your Company Value

    Synopsis:


    Our November seminar looks at eight strategies for driving up the value of a company. 


    If you're like a lot of entrepreneurs, you use your Profit & Loss (P&L) statement as your report card at the end of the year. You may even use your P&L to figure out what your company is worth by applying a multiple to your profit. But having worked with more than 40,000 entrepreneurs using The Value Builder System, ActionCOACH have seen examples of companies that fetch up to three times more than the average price for companies in their industry.


    Whether you want to sell your business - or just know that you could - you'll learn the eight things that drive the value of your company and suggestions on how to dramatically increase the value of your business.


    Content:


    During this session, we'll look at how to:


    • Structure your business like Jason Fried re-positioned Basecamp to maximize its value.
    • Accelerate the pace of positive word-of-mouth for your business, using the same techniques as companies like Eventbrite, Intuit, Google and Apple.
    • Differentiate your business using the same methodology Warren Buffet looks for in the companies in which he invests.
    • Minimize your company's reliance on your personal involvement using some of the strategies Tim Ferriss used to reduce the time he spent in his business to just four hours a week.

    Presenter - Anne Williamson, Customer Love

    Topic - How the Principles of Dating Can Help You Grow Your Business

    Are you putting people off doing business with you, without even realising it? You may even be losing future sales because you have treated your customer like a one night stand. It is so easy to fall into the trap of looking for new business all the time, whilst ignoring the customers you already have.

    Being in business has so much in common with dating ? it is all about the building quality relationships with our customers. In this fun and interactive seminar you will be taken through several of the stages of dating and discover how they apply to business. Each stage will be backed up with real life business examples - not dating examples that?s a totally different seminar;) Packed full of hints and tips for you to start wooing your customers (in a business sense).

    I?ve spent over 25 years in marketing, constantly building relationships with customers (online and offline) and have always been driven by delivering the best customer service possible. My book ?Are you a one night stand business?? delves deeper into where businesses can be losing sales through the way they treat potential and existing customers. My 25+ years marketing experience is backed by my Professional Diploma in Marketing but delivered with a cheeky G & T twist.

    Topic - Buying Customers - The Truth About Online Advertising



    Buying Customers - The Truth About Online Advertising That Some Digital Agencies Do Not Want You To Know About


    You would be forgiven for thinking that the ?top of page? ads are reserved for the highest paying customers. The truth is that the amount you are bidding is only one of five factors that determines your ad position.


    We will show you how to create high quality ads with super relevant content that will improve sales AND reduce costs.


    We?ll also explain how associated benefits (i.e. brand awareness and increased traffic) may or may not have the desired effect when it comes to delivering a return on your investment.


    SPOILER ALERT! ? We will demonstrate how our growth model proves that you don?t need a big budget to compete with the big boys! Something that those companies that want you to spend more don?t want you to hear.


    Robert Clarke ? Co-director of BrightRED, Robert oversees digital marketing activities for businesses in many different sectors. His experience in online advertising ranges from campaigns for FTSE 100 companies to sole traders.


    Paul Whitfield ? Following 15 years working in the corporate world, Paul now operates a portfolio of businesses in the North West. His frustration when engaging online agencies led Paul to invest in his own agency. This experience of online advertising as a customers and also as co-director of BrightRED provides a unique insight from both sides of the table.


    Both Robert and Paul are passionate about using their combined experience and knowledge to help SMEs to develop and grow.

    Presenter - Chris Graham - Be the Best Business Solutions

    Topic - Using Psychology to get more of what you want..

    Ever wondered why a ?lucky few? seem to have the power to convince people to do almost anything? Their charisma and eloquence are both highly impressive and somewhat frustrating; as they expertly work a room, sell anything to anyone and build a large and loyal network of people who would do almost anything for them! Luckily for us, academics have been studying these exceptional people for decades and in 1993 Dr Robert Cialdini published a book on the Science behind the Psychology of Influence. In it he outlines the 6-key principals of persuasion, which if applied correctly can help you to better influence or persuade a people to do what you want them to.


    Chris Graham, Director of the Epworth-based Be the Best Business Solutions Ltd, will draw on his practical experience working in military Information Warfare Units and his business experience in marketing and sales to explain Cialdini?s six principals. Expect to leave with new knowledge and easy, actionable ways in which you can start to apply these principals to your personal and business lives to make a bigger impact on those to whom you would like to sell an idea, service or product.

    Topic - The Accidental Entrepreneur: Lessons from the Canvas

    As an accidental entrepreneur, it is fair to say Cody made more mistakes than most because she never set out to run a business nor did she have any business or beauty background. Cody spent more time on the canvas than on her feet as she says she made every mistake in the book, but those failures taught her more than any victory ever could.


    Codilia Gapare, an entrepreneurial breast cancer survivor, has revolutionised the beauty industry by creating the first ever false lashes range for chemotherapy patients. The mother-of-two had always dreamed of becoming a lawyer and started studying when she came to the UK from Zimbabwe. Hours before her interview for University, Codilia was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 36, and it was through this intensely difficult time in her life that she realised that there were no fake eyelash options for cancer patients. Codilia transformed her idea into an actual product, 'C Lashes', and partnered with beauty brand Eylure. The company have since released the range in Boots stores, making the cosmetic industry more accessible for women with cancer. C-Lash was voted one of the 50 Prima High Street Heroes 2019 and is currently one of the best-selling new entry products in Boots.
