Better Business Club

The Better Business Club is an ongoing mentoring and networking group focused on helping you implement your growth strategy and plan and navigate your way through the day to day challenges of running your business.

Originally designed exclusively for past participants of the BGP programme that we ran on behalf of Cranfield, membership of the Better Business Club is now open to all owner managers who participate in our programmes.

The Better Business Club is designed to help you continue the journey you began during our programmes and actually bring about the future you want for your business and yourself.

We believe that the Better Business Club is the single most valuable way in which we can help you implement your strategy and achieve your goals.

Here are just a few examples of specific members issues which have benefited from the focus and attention of Better Business Club groups:

  • Successful implementation of the strategy and plan
  • Building a senior management team which can take the business to a new level
  • Turning a loss-making business into a substantially profitable operation
  • Restructuring a business for a new phase of growth including developing new service offerings to existing clients
  • Brand development, marketing and public relations
  • Practical support for a wide range of HR issues including performance review, recruitment, selection and leadership
  • Integrating new acquisitions
  • Grooming the business for sale.

Reminiscent of the counselling or coachingĀ  group environment, members share their business challenges and opportunities with their Better Business Club group at the regular meetings and get unbiased support and challenge from the groupĀ  facilitator in the one-to-one sessions. Having up to ten informal non-execs and your group facilitator help you work through challenges, encouraging you and stretching you will help you go from strength to strength. The Better Business Club provides a regular place for you to talk, listen and develop, a safe space to continue to explore how to create the future you want for your business and for you.

Better Business Club groups are run in a variety of locations and meet either 10 times a year or 6 times a year plus an equal number of one-to-one meetings between the group facilitator and each member. All group facilitators are experienced coaches.

“Club is like having half a dozen non-execs on my board, who understand me, my business and the issues we face but at a fraction of the cost!”
