About This Event

Building a business can be treacherous and lonely. Many start-ups fail within the first five years. One in three small businesses will cease to exist in the next ten. In the last fifty years over 80% of Fortune 500 companies have disappeared. It’s not surprising that most people in business live under the constant pressure of long hours, stress and risk.

In owning and running a company you face a world of harsh reality. The one thing every entrepreneur and business manager has in common is that they are constantly evaluating information in order to make decisions and impact outcomes. Every choice that you make counts! Judgement is key and good judgement is something that is rarely taught.

Do you understand how you make decisions? Do you know how you react to pressure? Have you ever thought about it? Getting this right is the difference between success and failure.

This workshop is designed for entrepreneurs and business managers to make them think about how they make decisions, to show them how to improve decision making and then provides a framework for applying this to their business to transform outcomes.

“We started working with John a few years ago when we conducted a management buyout of our company from the previous owners and have used many of the techniques taught in this workshop. To date turnover has increased seventeen times and profit is up fortyfold”
