In March 2020 Entrepreneurs Circle will be 10 years old and we’re celebrating that milestone with the biggest, most impactful event we’ve ever put on.
The EC Community is coming together for three whole days – and you have to be there.
You’ll be out of your normal environment, surrounded by and meeting with smart, like-minded, ambitious business owners...
Your head space will be freed to focus on the big picture.
You’ll be working ON your business, developing your knowledge and skills.
Hearing from genuine business experts with cutting-edge content.
Getting insights. Ideas. And inspiration.
It will be the single biggest and best business event in the UK next year – all focused on equipping you to get and keep customers like you’ve never done before.
The MUST-ATTEND Business Event of the Year
As well as Nigel and the EC team we've pulled together our most impressive line-up of speakers ever across the three days. Speaking at the Getting & Keeping Customer Convention will be:
Famed for its legendary customer service, Andrew McMillan’s role in defining the John Lewis brand has been key to its success today. Andrew will be drawing upon his three decades at John Lewis to share unique insights on keeping customers.
Rory Sutherland is Creative Director at the Ogilvy Group one of the most successful ad agencies ever. He is a truly brilliant speaker, a highly acclaimed educator and his content may very well blow your mind. One of the highlights of the Convention for sure.
As Head of Digital at Innocent Smoothies Helena sheds an entertaining light on Innocents approach to social media and customer service. Illustrating how a willingness to communicate with personality has proved invaluable to the growth of the brand. She’ll also be sharing how she made a stapler go viral (!) and other practical insights that could change how you view social media forever.
Rob Law is the creator of Trunki (the first ride-on suitcase for kids) and a fierce slayer of TV Dragons (including Peter Jones!). Rob’s bumpy ride on the way to bringing a new product to market against all odds, overcoming the challenges around design, manufacture and export will give you fascinating and inspirational insights...
Set to be the highlight of your business calendar next year, The Getting and Keeping Customers Convention will be a genuinely life changing 3-days for everyone in attendance.
Never before have we shared so much practical content, and brought together so many famous faces to share their stories.
Peter needs no introduction as one of the UK’s leading entrepreneurs and renowned ‘Dragon’. He’s built a business empire worth in excess of £200 million; his diverse business interests span mobile phones, media, leisure and property and he’ll be bringing all his wisdom, advice and experience to the Convention in March.
‘There’s no money in the middle’ has long been a strong principle of EC marketing and arguably no one in the public eye has better manifested this thinking than Piers Morgan. Love him or hate him there’s no denying his success and at the Convention you’ll get real insights from one of the most controversial media personalities of recent times in what promises to be one of the most engaging and fascinating sessions of the three days.
He out-sold JK Rowling in both 2017 and 2018 to become the most successful author in Britain with sales of over £32m but of course he’s even better known for Little Britain, Sport Relief and Britain’s Got Talent. Hugely entertaining but also a very smart cookie when it comes to business, David will be interviewed on stage on Monday afternoon and then, later that evening he will be hosting the seventh National Entrepreneurs Awards.
Many people will be paying more than the special cost of your Pass just to come to the Convention BUT your ticket is INCLUDED when you secure your Pass for 2020 before the end of December.
Over the last five years many of the biggest breakthroughs, for hundreds of EC members, have come at one of Nigel’s ‘Advanced Masterclasses’ – because these are the events where you think differently and more deeply about your business and your life.
It’s powerful stuff and we’ll be doing it again in 2020.
There’ll be FOUR, in-depth, BRAND-NEW, TWO DAY events with Nigel, all designed for business owners.
Any ONE of these Masterclass events is worth more than the cost of an Unlimited Pass on its own, such will be the impact.
To sustainably grow any business, you have to grow the business owner.
For 2020 to be your break-through year YOU have to grow your thinking, your understanding and your knowledge of business - which is what these Masterclass events are all about.
Most businesses are held back and stopped from reaching their potential by what the business owner either doesn’t know – or doesn’t do.
We’re fixing both of those things at these FOUR Masterclasses.
Below this tab you can find the details of the FOUR brand new Advanced Masterclasses for 2020
"Deep conversations with the right people are priceless."

Cracking the rhythmic acquisition of customers for your business
rhythmic - Adjective
When you have a consistent, predictable, rhythmic flow of customers coming in to your business, life is good.
It’s the holy grail of business.
The most important thing.
In this BRAND NEW Masterclass, Nigel will walk you through the powerful, practical and simple SYSTEM for making the rhythmic acquisition of customers a reality in your business.
How many do you need?
How much can you afford to pay to get them?
What should you do to make it happen?
Over two days you’ll discover the system and model AND begin to implement and make it happen in your business.
You’ll go away from this Masterclass with:
If you aspire to getting the rhythmic acquisition of customers properly implemented in your business then you can’t afford to miss this unique two day event.
LinkedIn has the potential to be THE dominant marketing pillar for most B2B businesses.
Yet it is misunderstood and ineffectively used by almost everyone.
At this TWO DAY Masterclass you’ll discover AND implement the practical strategies and tactics to make LinkedIn properly work for you.
This is NOT a listen and learn session. These will be an immersive two days full of implementation where you’ll walk away having already DONE most of the work needed to turn LinkedIn into the customer generating machine it should be for your business.
We’ll optimise your profile, right there in the room. We’ll craft winning messages, hone your approach and map out the exact campaign structure you need to follow, all there on the day...
We’ll be going DEEP and equipping you with the tools and templates to make a real difference to your business.
No theory – just proven tried and tested techniques that work.
In our agency, LinkedIn is established as one of the top marketing pillars that we deploy for many of our clients to bring them a consistent, rhythmic flow of highly qualified leads and enquiries and we’ll share with you exactly how we make that happen so that you can deploy it too.
LinkedIn is also a brilliant tool to help you find and attract people of the right calibre to come and work with you on your team – and we’ll guide you through exactly how to use it for that as well.
As with most things in life, ‘It ain't what you do, it’s the way that you do it, that’s what gets results’ and nowhere is that more true than with LinkedIn.
Eliminate ‘Bananarama Syndrome’ from your business with regard to LinkedIn. Be in the room with Nigel and the team for this cutting-edge two day Masterclass after which you’ll go home with much of the implementation already done and executed.
Bring your laptop. This is a practical hands-on, do-it-whilst-you’re-there, event.
How to properly SCALE your business...
This Masterclass is for business owners who have genuine high ambitions to transform their business and their lifestyle - and who are prepared to look in the mirror.
It’s for people who are serious about accelerating the rate of change, getting real results and building long-lasting sustainable success in their business.
If that’s you then make sure you are in the room for these TWO DAYS in Birmingham.
Many entrepreneurs feel overwhelmed and adrift at some point; in a business fog, not knowing who to turn to or which way to go next.
You feel anxious and have sleepless nights worrying about your business.
All too often, you end up running around like a headless chicken in a panic, reacting to ‘surprises’.
You and your team get frustrated time and time again as the business repeats the same mistakes.
Self-doubt creeps in and you lose confidence in yourself and your business.
You worry about failure and eventually you get bored, dis-engaged, and fall out of love with your business. You become stuck in a rut.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Over TWO days Nigel and Martin Norbury (below) will go deep into the SCALE model that has worked so well and had such profound impact on so many EC businesses.
You’ll go away with a system – and a proper understanding of how to deploy it - that really can solve all the problems and challenges in your business and enable you to properly SCALE up.
S is for Set up of Strategy:
You need to start with the end in mind so that you can measure the results. Getting absolute clarity is so important. Your vision, your values, your brand promise.
C is for Congruence:
Ensuring that everything and everyone who needs to be involved understands their role (and the goal), and the systems and processes in place that support the business so it can run without you.
A is for Alerts & Alarms:
The importance of measuring the activity that creates the result and highlighting when it is not met. The “business” needs to tell us if it is not working.
L is for Lessons Learned:
A growing business is an evolving business – if you want to scale-up and exit then you need to be dedicated to continuous improvement.
E is for Execution Experiment, Expand:
This is all about focussing on the execution strategies to expand; releasing your involvement and giving you the freedom you want.
Martin Norbury is known as the Scalability Coach and is famous within the EC for the significant contribution he’s made to Nigel’s Mastermind Groups over the past 6 years. He’s a former CEO of a PLC, was voted one of Britains Top 10 Business Advisors in 2018 and is author of “I Don’t Work Fridays”.
This will be a very different Masterclass to any of the others next year.
These two days will be about THINKING and APPLIED THINKING rather than an amalgamation of things to do and how to do them.
It’s all about your wealth.
It will be two days up close and personal with Nigel.
At a recent 2019 Masterclass we spoke about how less can be more.
These are not fanciful aspirations or far-away dreams and in this Masterclass, Nigel will lay out the steps to make it happen.
He also has plenty of stories to share about people like you who are making this happen.
Ten years since we started out, the EC now has lots of closet millionaires. Many, many more are on their way to joining them. They may not all be sat on seven figures of cash (although some are) but they have a business worth a sizeable seven (or eight) figure sum.
They’ve made a fortune – built to last – and we’ll be exploring how they did it and dissecting the elements.
Know for sure that Nigel has deeper more important things to share about this topic than ever before and that this event will be a fitting climax to our 2020 Quartet of Masterclasses...
"Back home from my first ever EC Masterclass, and all I can say is WOW!
Having been on courses in the past, had business coaches, and mentors, NOBODY has given me the level of info and thinking that Nigel gave me today.
It was absolutely amazing, driving back my mind was in overdrive with the new implementation I want and NEED to add to my business."
