As an ex-teacher, you can imagine how many seminars I've sat through. As a former small business owner I also attended many trying to get that edge. Nothing, and I mean Nothing has ever come close to Edgeware. Were I ten years younger and not so committed I would love to do the extra training to become a presenter. Elaine Thomson

Edgeware takes a bunch of people with big ideas, throws them in a pot, sprinkles them with the hard-won wisdom of hand-picked mentors, gives them a stir, then lets them stew. It’s a great way to meet like-minded souls and thrash out what it takes to get your venture off the ground. Alan James

I thoroughly enjoyed and got so much value from the Edgeware program I loved that it is designed to nurture and inspire budding entrepreneurs - instead of approaching business from a theoretical viewpoint, Edgeware provides a practical, hands-on approach to making entrepreneurial visions a reality in a way that is real-world and real-time. What made the program so worthwhile were the interactive style of the seminars (as a group we learned so much from one another), and also the specific systems and processes – by following the step-by-step process I developed a really clear business plan that now paves the way for me to fulfill on my vision. Penelope Low

After 10 years of business growth, we needed to re-evaluate our position and set some new challenges. The Edgeware program was exactly what we needed. It breaks the rules of traditional business planning courses and encourages lateral thinking whilst empowering you with the planning tools you need to implement your strategy. Daniel Hunjas

The course gave me greater clarity and focus on where to take my business from here. A lot of the ideas and techniques can also be applied to personal life - which was another unexpected bonus. It was fun, positive, educational, motivating and very professional. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Catherine Moine

Excellent! I didn't know a thing about starting up a business or doing a business plan and now I do. Thanks Robert and Michael. You are great role models and teachers. Three points that really stood out for me were: simplify your business; now-where-how; and be first or be different. Naomi Revell

Whether it be one business idea (or hundreds), I think Edgeware is great for anyone who needs help to move on with it. For my own needs, I savoured the whole package - tips, tools, support, ethics, drive, contacts, information, inspiration, etc. The organic approach at Edgeware is significant – I think everyone wants to know about real people, real struggle and real success. It was such a great experience to be in a group of like-minded individuals who contributed so much of themselves.  Thanks to Edgeware, I've found the confidence to take the next step… Janette Zlamal

A quick thank you for the skills I have acquired. In my 24 years as a manager I have participated in many training programs, both formal qualifications and internal workshops and never have I acquired so many skills so quickly, which I can apply immediately. I particularly found useful  that I can now scope a project and build a business plan in 24 hours, then either discard the concept or make a decision to run with it. Prior to my Edgeware learning, this could have taken weeks. For me, you absolutely nailed the mix of skills any modern manager needs. Wayne Lee

The course is rich in content and enables you to look at your business from many points of view. It provides the tools to get your business idea up and running and the flexibility to be really creative and innovative in your business design. The course encourages and inspires each of us to be the best we can be and truly live our dream or vision. It is a winning combination, with dynamic and knowledgeable presenters in the context of a supportive group inspiring confidence, respect and confidentiality. Joseph Tramacchi

I didn’t know what to expect. It sounded a bit abstract, a bit out there, a bit creative for me!

When I began Edgeware I was confused about my intentions and under pressure from other events in my life which were making decisions necessary but very difficult. I really needed a process which gave me inspiration and encouraged decision making. But I also needed a process which allowed me to progress at my own pace and make decisions my way. If it added a dash of inspiration that would be good too. In Edgeware, I found it all. Ross Peddlesden
