The 7 things that are stopping you growing your business, what you can do about it and why most people won’t.
Irritatingly growing a business isn’t a secret science – you already know what you need to do to make it happen, but the simple truth is most people don’t achieve what they want to with their business.
- They don’t have enough customers
- They Don’t have the right customers
- They work to hard and don’t have the lifestyle they set out to achieve.
But if everyone actually know what they need to do to grow their business why doesn’t it happen for the majority?
That’s what we are looking at. The experience of working with over 1000 business owners has highlighted 7 things that stop growing their business (no one wants to talk about number 5!) and Paul is going to look at each one in turn and show you how to deal with it – and what happens when you do.
Paul Chapman is a best-selling author, speaker and one of the UK’s leading customer acquisition specialists.
He’s also the owner of Marketing Jumpleads www.marketingjumpleads.com

“How to Boost Your Face to Face Selling Skills”
If you’re a business owner or you’re in sales, or you interact with people on a regular basis in your profession or you just want to be more persuasive … then the single most important thing you can do is to learn how to improve your face to face selling skills.
Because without sales, you have no business
In this content rich presentation here’s what you’ll discover:
- How to create rapport with anyone in 30 seconds or less (watch out for the hypnotic handshake technique)
- How to use the power of a compliment which will help you present your offering in ‘your prospects motivational style’ – this is cutting edge psychology that will leave you smiling and with more business in your pocket and …
- A classic way to present and sell that leaves the ‘closing’ up to your customer in a simple and elegant way.
Wealth warning: Gary’s style is not for the faint-hearted or the thumb-suckers who like to whinge, whine and moan (you have been warned) – However, it is for forward thinking people who are open to change and want to see their businesses soar way beyond where they are now. He is definitely suitable for those who like to combine serious business with fun. If that’s you, he looks forward to meeting with you to reveal the ‘dark arts of hypnosis’ and how you can apply them ethically in business.

Marc Ford - 10:45am
STOP being an expert – START being a #1 Expert Business
All I ask of you is to give me 30 minutes of your time, and I’ll give you the keys to making thousands of extra pounds in your business.
The bar for being an entrepreneur is set pretty low. Anyone who sells creams, potions and tat out of brown boxes calls themselves an entrepreneur.
If I asked a bunch of small business owners to put up their hands if they thought they were an expert at what they do, they’d all put their hands up. (If you didn’t by the way, perhaps you shouldn’t have any customers!)
Everyone is saying and doing the same things, so they can get on page one of Google. Get the most social media followers. Get the best speaking gigs. Get what everyone else has. So there has to be a different way to put yourself head and shoulders above the competition, right?
But not many are not doing ‘it’.
So…question is…”How do you fancy being shown the top 10 things you need to do, to be in a position where you don’t have to worry what your competition is doing?”
Based on Marc’s 20 year+ of corporate and small business life; as well as his 5 Business books, coaching and media experience, he’ll show you EXACTLY what the most successful business are doing to get their ideal customers and clients. And all of this with a few subtle shifts of how you do things right now, which won’t cost you thousands of pounds in ads, click bait, funnels, opt-ins, opt-outs or time expiring marketing. In fact…most of it will be FREE!
So…what have you got to lose? Give me 30 minutes of your time and I’ll give you the keys to unlocking some genuine small business gold for years to come!
Marc Ford MBA, The Best Kept Business Secret, is a business coach, author and speaker who specialises in helping businesses reposition themselves so that they become the #1 choice of their ideal customers and clients. He is trusted by BBC Radio 5 Live, BBC Local Radio, the BBC News Channel and Channel 4 on all things small business. He has worked with many small businesses who have been transformed in a matter of months as well as businesses such as Hitachi and Mercedes Benz. Oh…and he’s like a ball of energy…so it won’t be a death by PowerPoint presentation either!
Jo Lee - 12:15pm
Building Bravery in Business: Why Being Brave is important for business growth, and how you can become Braver.
As a business owner there’s more than enough information and advice out there about what to do to become more effective and achieve more business growth.
So why is it so hard to actually do?
Often, we simply get in our own way – fear, uncertainty or lack of confidence leads us to procrastinate or decide not to attempt something at all, sticking within our comfort zone and keeping our businesses small.
In this presentation, Jo will explore both the “what” and the “how” of being brave in business, in a way that will help you grow your business:
Beyond SMART: How to set brave business goals that (almost) guarantee you will achieve more and will ensure you know what success looks like and when you’ll have achieved that
The difference between bravery and confidence, and how one leads to the other
Learn how you can become braver and more easily take action outside of your comfort zone when uncertainty or lack of confidence leads to procrastination or is stopping you making the decisions or taking the action you need for growth
Bust through a specific belief or fear of your own that’s limiting you, during the session, so you leave more ready to be brave than when you came
