Attend the South West Business Growth Summit

By Anita Jaynes on 26 November, 2018

Join ActionCOACH and Jim Lawless for a life changing day on Friday March 1, 2019 at Bath Racecourse.

Business owners and managers looking to adopt a can-do attitude will get the chance to learn from renowned motivational speaker Jim Lawless at a major event in Bath next March.

Jim, a business coach and author of the best-selling book Taming Tigers: Do Things You Never Thought You Could, will be the keynote speaker at the second South West Business Growth Summit.

Jim has designed and implemented successful change programmes in bluechip companies including Apple, Barclaycard, John Lewis, Microsoft, and Virgin.

In 2003 he proved his Ten Rules for Taming Tigers by becoming a jockey in 12 months – shedding 20kg… and learning to ride a horse. 

And in 2010, to test new Taming Tigers theories around mental toughness, he became Britain’s Deepest Freediver – the first Briton to dive below 100m on a single breath of air.

The growth summit, organised by business trainers from across the South West, is aimed at owners and managers of SME businesses from Bath, Bristol, Somerset, and Swindon and Wiltshire who are serious about growing their business and creating great results.

“I took the British freedive record and became a jockey 12 months from first sitting on a horse – neither of which I had any business thinking I could do. I wonder what you think you have no business undertaking because of the way we view ourselves?”
said Jim.

“At the South West Business Growth Summit we’ll be looking at what actions you could take, which people you could collaborate with, what rules you could shatter, and what bold new steps you could take to enable you to move forward.”

The summit will also include an interactive high-value workshop focused on over-coming limiting beliefs that inhibit business growth  from Peter Rolliston, growth specialist Nigel Scott, and business transformation specialist Andy Walter – all from ActionCoach, the world’s #1 business coaching firm.

Delegates will also hear from Joanne Rolliston, an Engage and Grow coach specialising in team building, and from Alison Clarke, a mind-set coach specialising in helping people to find their inner capacity for peak performance.

“You will leave the day feeling inspired ready to take massive action both in your business and personal life with tangible actions to take,” said Peter Rolliston.

The event is sponsored by CMD Recruitment, Morgans IFA, Together Money, BCMS, Minuteman Press, Towergate Insurance and South West Business Finance.
