It’s easy to forget how close we are to a brand new decade!


The 2020’s Vision programme has been designed for business owners with an endgame in mind; for entrepreneurs who are deadly serious about building a scalable business that will deliver their ‘number’ on exit.

We’re going to meet monthly, throughout 2019, examining in detail the components of a valuable business. Our impressive list of speakers will drill deep into the core value-drivers that all serious business owners should focus on.

We’re looking only for visionaries; 2020’s Visionaries!

At each session, our Visionaries will network and share ideas with others looking to build value for the exit.

With almost a full year to go before the 20’s hit us, it all kicks off on Friday the 15th of February 2019 at The Mere in Cheshire. This could be the best thing you do for your business next year, so book now at our Early Bird rate.

The 20’s will soon be back!

What will your life look like by the end of the 20’s?
