Nick will be speaking about the Success Conundrum that all businesses reach at some point in the business lifecycle. This is the point when you as the business owner realises you need to get much better before you get much bigger!

How do you carry on achieving the growth and success you have had so far but at the same time improve the business infrastructure and processes to make it work better and become more sustainable.

You know you have reached this point when some of the following start to occur;

* More operational ‘issues’

* Higher employee churn

* More customer complaints

* Lower contract renewals

This are all signs that your current business has outgrown its previous structure and you need to reinvest before these blips become trends.

Nick will be introducing you to the 3 guiding principles you need to adopt & the 6 core components you need to put in place to ensure you can solve the Success Conundrum. This will be an interactive session and you will leave with actions & ideas that you can implement immediately to improve the way your business operates.

Darran Smith

Courses: Sales Bootcamp

My Name is Darran Smith founder of Purple Rhino & Lifelong Entrepreneur – That’s 35 years now!

Back in 2015 I was considered to be very successful amongst my peers, little did they know I was wearing so many hats,

my JOB role in the business was The Marketeer, The Accountant, The Banker, The Cleaner, The Web Writer, The Problem Solver

The Buyer, The Salesman, The Bid Writer, and so many more, I was working 18 hour days, 7 days a week with two mobile phones constantly stuck to my ears!

 I knew something had to be done about this, I had a three year old daughter whom I never saw because of work, a son who was born in June 2015 and my wife had been diagnosed with a serious illness four days before his birth. I wanted to make sure I would be there for my kids as well as providing them with a great life. Giving up the businesses was not an option!

I knew I needed help, I had heard of business mentors and business coaches and thought they were ONLY for successful rich people…


So after almost 32 years in business it finally clicked! Successful business owners have great business coaches, that’s how they had great businesses! They understood something which had eluded me all of those years – you CANNOT do this all by yourself.


Simple as that! I decided to find a business coach who I could relate to. Looking into coaching was a minefield, but everywhere I looked I found not only great businesses had great business coaches, sports stars and top entertainers all had one TOO!  They were the BEST at what they did AND they ALL had a personal coach to hold them accountable for what they were doing!

And that’s why I have arranged this event so you can benefit from all the knowledge and experience.
