“inspired change within myself”
Very useful for learning new tools to bring your business up and to the fore; for meeting other people with similar issues and learning from them. It inspired change within myself.
“breaks the rules and encourages lateral thinking”
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.
“designed to nurture and inspire budding entrepreneurs”
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.
“I smile, and ‘stride with pride'”
Within 10 days of Edgeware completion, my business experiences have escalated to ‘almost giddy’ heights. From the ‘grounded experience’, I now seek balance of short-term cashflow, with longer-term reachable goals. With the Edgeware experience sitting comfortably within me, I smile, and ‘stride with pride’.
“about learning to run a business at a profit”
It’s about learning to run a business at a profit. It’s easy to understand, and provides ideas on how to implement the process. I left school at 15, this is my first experience of formal training, and it was very useful.
“way easier to interpret than other business courses”
My overall impression of the program is: Way easier to interpret than other business courses. The business experience you guys have is remarkable, and advice comes across to me so I can understand.
“it never really felt like work”
I really enjoyed the mix of work, anecdotes, guest speakers and activities … it never really felt like work. One point that really stood out for me was your friendly, caring generosity from start to finish.
“never have I acquired so many skills so quickly”
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.
“good, honest feedback”
I liked the personal approach and ability to give good, honest feedback based on experience.
“I would highly recommend it to anyone”
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.
