Getting Your Business to the NEXT Level

When a person is building a business, it is their knowledge and passion for their chosen field that helps them achieve initial success.

However that knowledge and passion will not, on its own, be enough to help the business get to the NEXT level.

And isn’t that where you’d like to be?  At the next level?

You see, in addition to needing the owner’s knowledge and passion, a business can only reach the NEXT level by focussing on these two things:

  1. Working ON the business to build a finely tuned “business machine”; and
  2. Working ON the owner to create a “great business owner”.

Both are an ongoing process.  Get them right, and you’ll consistently take your business to the next level.

Antony Holdsworth, Holdsworth Advantage

Antony Holdsworth is an entrepreneur and a Chartered Management Accountant.  After working in the City of London for some of the UK’s leading investment banks, Antony quit his job to go into business. He has since built two separate £1m plus businesses in quick succession but makes the point that it hasn’t always been easy. “I started in business 11 years ago and learned very quickly that an honours degree and a professional qualification do not, on their own, make an entrepreneur! Business is one long, on-going problem solving exercise – and what defines a business person is how they think and how successful they are at overcoming problems.”

In a fast moving and interactive session entitled “Habits of Great Business Owners” Antony will share with you his insights into the behaviour patterns of truly successful business owners. You will learn traits and habits that you can use immediately in your business life that will genuinely make a difference to your performance and that of your business.
