  28. 28. (UNLIKE ITS COMPETITORS) THE ACADEMY DEVELOPS THE “WHOLE PERSON” NOT JUST THE BUSINESS PERSON
  29. 29. (UNLIKE ITS COMPETITORS) ACADEMY CHAIRMEN ARE SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS PEOPLE IN THEIR OWN RIGHT – WE HAVE AN ENTREPRENEURIAL FRANCHISE BUSINESS MODEL</li></li></ul><li>WHAT MEMBERS SAY ABOUTTHE ACADEMY<br /><ul><li>THE ACADEMY TAKES UP TO 5% OF MY TIME BUT NOW I KNOW WHAT I SHOULD BE DOING WITH THE OTHER 95% OF MY TIME!

  31. 31. I THINK I NOW LOOK UP AT THE HORIZON, NOT JUST LOOK DOWN AT THE BOTTOM LINE
  32. 32. MY FELLOW MEMBERS ARE A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO WILL GO THE EXTRA MILE – AS THEY HAVE DONE WITH ME, MANY TIMES
  33. 33. THE ACADEMY IS A TRUSTED FRIEND THAT HAS TAKEN ME TO PLACES I HAVEN’T BEEN TO BEFORE</li></li></ul><li>WHAT MEMBERS SAY ABOUTTHE ACADEMY<br /><ul><li>THE ACADEMY’S SPEAKERS HAVE HELPED MY BUSINESS TO STAND OUT FROM ITS COMPETITORS RATHER THAN JUST STAND UP TO THEM
  34. 34. THE FEEDBACK FROM MY MANAGEMENT TEAM HAS BEEN INTERESTING – MY F.D. SAID “I DON’T KNOW WHERE YOU GO EVERY MONTH BUT PLEASE KEEP GOING THERE!”
  35. 35. THE ACADEMY PROVIDES THE BEST ADVICE I DON’T HAVE TO TAKE
  36. 36. MY GROUP CHAIRMAN HAS BEEN OUTSTANDING – HE ANSWERS MY QUESTIONS AND QUESTIONS MY ANSWERS
  37. 37. IT SOUNDS A BIT CORNY, BUT I FEEL THAT I HAVE BECOME MYSELF!</li></li></ul><li>WE INSPIRE OUR MEMBERS TO ACHIEVE THEIR DREAMS<br />AND OUR VISION IS TO BE<br />THE NO.1 ORGANISATION FOR CEOs WHO WANT TO BE NO.1<br />
