Fitting it all together
“I attended an ‘Induction into the Business Club’ training session for half a day this week, and I must say that it was exceptional. Mike was informative, humorous, thought-provoking and so full of business techniques it was impossible to take them all in! Anyone who turns down the opportunity of attending this training should seriously question their decision, because everyone on the course, professional business people included, said they had learned some great techniques to improve their own business. Furthermore, some of the techniques could be implemented in minutes yet could bring in serious additional revenue! I strongly urge all members to attend this fantastic value course, and to make the most of their Business Club membership!”
Jen Cartwright, Gateway HR

Steve Dudley, Into The Blue Consulting
“An absolutely worthwhile and eye opening experience. Mike did a splendid job in making us aware of the huge benefits of being a Club Member. In addition he provided a wealth of information and advice on how to grow a business. All great stuff!!This is a “must attend” event for not only new members but also the long standing and experiencced members ”
“Another great training session from the master of sales, Mike Willis. The training session today has given me useful insight into the working practices of an experienced, effective salesperson and I look forward to implementing some of your suggestions “
Sharon French, Director, Evolve Marketing Ltd
“After experiencing the friendly and professional atmosphere of the Business Club Northants I was looking forward to attending the sales and marketing training. I was expecting it to be extremely useful but also a little more fun than the average training session! And it was – Mike created a learning environment that was professional, fun and relaxed.
The training came at a great time for me as I had been reading and trying to learn about sales and marketing and finding it very time consuming and not particularly inspiring! Mike provided such a huge amount of information that a few days later I am still absorbing it all and adapting it to my own business processes. I feel very fortunate to be able to learn from Mike as it is evident he has a wealth of experience. It’s also obvious that Mike genuinely wants you to succeed and as a new business it is really encouraging to have that support.
I came away feeling much more confident about the sales and marketing side of my business and inspired! I am looking forward to putting the training into action and expect the benefit to show through in my business and my sales in the near future. Thank you Mike.”
Sarah Watson. Bubble Office Support
“Being a ‘newbie’ to the world of business having always been employed previously, I found the training session run by Mike at the Business Club Northants so useful and very informative, from the tips for ‘networking’ at the meetings to the insight into how to generate leads.
I have no sales background or marketing experience and have found these things the most challenging since going into business, so the information and ideas on how to market my business and approach potential customers has been fantastic. For me he opened my eyes and made me think more creatively and focus on my business, which to be honest I have been so wrapped up with concentrating on my clients I had neglected.
It has also given me that confidence to go into a client this morning and rather than under-price on the service just to win the business, I have gone in nearer the top end of the market value and still won the contract.
I can’t see how anyone who attends could walk away without taking something useful from the training even its just the opportunity to meet and talk to other new members in a more personal environment.”
Wendy Wareing, Managing Director. Acrobat Book Keeping Service
“I would like to thank you for yesterday’s training, which I thoroughly enjoyed. It was informative, with practical ideas/ applications and also fun. You passion for your work is unquestionable which is very motivational to those of us on new ventures. The action plan tips you mailed were great – so useful for lone workers. The manual we were given will be a useful reference point. I look forward to participating in the Business Club Northants and benefiting from the knowledge and experience that is available through the club. Again many thanks – this was a great induction to the club.”
Michelle Walters, Director. Forward Training Associates Ltd
“I thoroughly enjoyed the sales training from Mike today, The venue Kettering Park Hotel was great and Mikes delivery was first class in a very relaxed environment, with a chance to network at the end. Mike is a true motivator and I feel that he genuinely wants you to get the most out of the Business Club and the sales training. Mike regaled us all with his collection of sale stories, which I personally enjoyed. You can tell Mike has had an array of sales training across many industries and he covered a lot of material in a very short time frame. I would recommend the sales training to all new members and especially to anyone, who has just started their new business like myself. Many Thanks”
Paul French. Mapps Ltd
“Thank you for a great morning of business training, I found it really informative and was able to take a lot from it. I am very new to my role but I have taken away a lot of understanding not just on the training itself, but also the function of the club and I think it’s fantastic what you do. I liked the small group interaction and the relaxed environment and most importantly, think you have an admirable approach to sales. Really enjoyed it and would happily recommend.”
Tanya Shirley. The Last Hurdle
“It was refreshing to be trained by someone who has obviously worked to a senior level in the field and who has developed successful methods of obtaining sales.
Your relaxed yet professional approach to the training made it fun and informative and we both came away eager to use the skills imparted on the course.”
Kate and Jamie Taylor. FTRE.
“I learnt so much from attending Mike’s training session, both about marketing my business and about making maximum use of the Business Club Northants.
I had several ‘light bulb moments’ and found the event energising and motivating. Mike has a wealth
Of experience to share so I recommend that you attend as soon as you can! I came away with an action list and the enthusiasm to get working on it!
Judith Hanson Blue River Coaching
“I found the training really informative and good fun too, Mike’s encouraging style really makes you want to ‘have a go’ plus once I got back to my office and made a sales call, the very first one turned into an order – Told Mike he’d worked a miracle!”
Helen Davis – Rainbow 360 Media Ltd
Mike comments “ I am passionate and enthusiastic about training and I get great satisfaction when I see members achieve more by following the training methods!”
