What you will learn...

Do you know what makes you and your business unique, and why a customer should buy from you rather than a competitor…and importantly, can you communicate it powerfully?

In this half-seminar you will gain an in depth understanding of how to develop your business to keep achieving a high performance, whilst learning the dynamics to advance over your competitors. We’ll take you through multiple strategies across your business and its operation to enable you to define and maintain your competitive advantage in a challenging marketplace.

What is (and isn't) competitive advantage!

Tim Rylatt is a highly experienced business coach who has worked with more than 200 companies during the past 15 years. He is also the author of 3 books that address the topics of sales skills, strategic marketing, and business growth.

Unlike many coaches, Tim is also a business owner himself, as a director in two marketing agencies, as well as his own coaching firm (which is now also a franchise).

Does your marketing separate you from the competition and keep you ahead?

Henry Laker, Growth By Design

For many businesses, there is a risk that their efforts with marketing can blend into the background and get lost amongst the message and content of the competition.

The good news is that there is a way to stand out from the crowd and stay in front. In his exciting presentation, Henry Laker will explain:

Henry Laker has been involved in business marketing for more than 25 years. He has worked within the print, graphic design, website design, and broader digital sectors. During this time he has worked with hundreds of companies to help refine their brand presentation, lead generation, customer lifetime values and reputations.
