Who is Entrepreneurs Circle?
The Entrepreneurs Circle is the original and best – no one has helped more businesses to grow than the EC!
We exist to educate, motivate, help and inspire business owners to achieve more than they ever thought possible.
We’re a team of over 50 highly skilled marketers, copy-writers, designers, coaches, digital experts and more based near the NEC in Birmingham, right in the heart of the UK.
Many of the people behind, and working in, other independent organisations that purport to support businesses in the UK, learned their craft and skills from Nigel and the team at Entrepreneurs Circle.
What We Do
In simple terms EC changes lives.
When your businesses starts generating cash, rather than consuming it – it’s life changing;
When your business moves from losses into profit – it’s life changing;
When you go from ‘getting by’ to making serious money – it’s life changing;
When you crack what we call the Rhythmic Acquisition of Customers for your business – it’s life changing;
When you create new jobs and employ more people – it’s life changing;
When your mum or dad stops working 24/7 on their business and has time for you – it’s life changing;
When you can take the holidays you’ve dreamed of, or buy your forever home, or drive the car you’ve always wanted – it’s life changing;
Those are the results of what we do. And they happen every week for businesses in EC…
Why We Do It
Never a week goes by at EC without a letter, a card, an email or a gift being received from one of our members thanking us for the difference we’ve made to their business.
That’s hugely fulfilling – and it’s what drives us;
We’re a great team of high calibre marketers and we get to put our talents and skills to work every day to make a real difference to the lives of others.
We love to learn – and we’re very aware that we need to stay right at the leading edge of marketing in all its forms so we can best support and help our members, whether that’s teaching them, showing them, helping them or, increasingly, doing it for them.
It means we get to have fun every day, doing what we love and being appreciated for it – which we recognise is pretty cool and very rare. That’s why we do it!
Our Story So Far
The Entrepreneurs Circle work with thousands of business owners, just like you, every single day who desire success and growth for their business. Here at EC we really don’t like the fact that so many businesses in the UK fail or more often stay mired in mediocrity. It happens because they don't get the real life support, the insights, the training, the coaching, all the backup that they need to enable them to really succeed. That's why Entrepreneurs Circle exists. To fix that.
The EC’s new Proper Implementation Journeys go down a storm with thousands of business owners and their teams ‘properly implementing’ key marketing pillars in their business thanks to the LIVE, online, interactive courses.
Business Growth Central broadcasts for the first time. Our fortnightly LIVE TV show is watched by thousands around the world via livestream.
The final training courses are held in the EC Academy as the builders move in to convert the training rooms into a broadcast quality studio in preparation for…
The 400th episode of NBTV is published. Nigel continues to deliver his ‘bite-size’ bits to help your business grow each and every week.
The Programme is launched – an 18-month structured programme that is 100% focussed on getting YOU to where you want to be. It’s not about learning… it’s about implementing and provides 1:1 support for serious business owners.

What Our Clients Are Saying
Joining EC was the best decision I’ve made
Joining EC was the best decision I’ve made in over 10 years in business and our focus and progress is due in no small part to Nigel and the team at EC and the help and inspiration they’ve given me.
£1.3m to £2m in ten months!
I joined Entrepreneurs Circle last year and the business has gone from £1.2m to over £10m in a ten-month period! It’s fantastic!
£750,000 of sales from one EC nugget…
I increased my turnover by 400% by following one EC nugget. It sounds obvious now but it’s made such a big difference and when I add it up it’s generated £750K worth of sales!
The enthusiasm is contagious
I love the Entrepreneurs Circle! When you work on your own it can be very challenging to keep inspired, motivated and on track. Nigel’s enthusiasm is contagious!
Zero to £400,00 turnover in just four years thanks to EC
With the help of Nigel Botterill, my business has gone from strength to strength and has transformed into the success it is today. We now turnover £400,000 with a team of seven people, in just four years ago.
A new £25,000 contract
Inspired by what I learned at the EC, I produced a top quality newsletter. The newsletter attracted the right attention and we landed a £25,000 contract as a result.
£100,000 of sales in three days
I used the information that I’d learned from the EC when selling tickets to a music festival. I sold a quarter of the event tickets within three days of them going on sale, which brought me in £100,000!
£60,000 of new business
As an EC member, I knew that I had to give direct mail a try. I sent out a great offer and a pack of jelly beans to clients that we wanted to work with. Within two days I’d brought in £60,000 of new business. Brilliant.
£18,500 of new business in a week
After hearing Nigel speak about the importance of offering a premium product at an EC Event, I decided to begin offering a three-tiered pricing structure. Within a week this new pricing structure had brought in £18,500 worth of new business!
Within just two week I’d won a £50,000 contract
Joining the EC helped me to put 12 years worth of ideas into action. The content they have available online really helped me and within just two weeks of joining I’d won a £50,000 contract as a result.
On track for £1,000,000 turnover
After being a member of EC for just four weeks I’d increased my turnover by £40,000. I’ve really learned to work ‘on’ my business, rather than just ‘in’ it and now I’m on track to reach a turnover of £1,000,000 by the end of the year.
It’s on another level completely…
I’ve been a member of the EC for several years now and I can honestly say that the support they offer really is on another level, completely different to anything else out there. So practical and insightful and they really do care.
Turnover up by 500% in the last year…
Times were rough before I joined the EC – my phone never rang. A year later and my sales are up 500% all thanks to the resources and help I’ve received.
We’ve grown by 35 franchises in 12 months
