Elva Ainsworth
Founder, Talent Innovations, Psychologist and UK’s No.1 provider of 360 degree assessments
“Before Marketing Wizdom no sale ever occurred without my input. When our relationship started we had consulting revenue of around £100K and product revenue of £25K. Our product revenue, which has much bigger margins, is now £850K.

Before Marketing Wizdom we didn’t know how to voice and demonstrate the excellence of our product, process and support. I value the opportunity to think about my business, my time, my strategy and all the steps that I know can move my business forward. All of the actions suggested in the program have turned out to be essential in retrospect.

I am now confident about building a small business into a large business. I know what has to be done and I have the confidence to do it.”

Robin King
Managing Director, Robin King Estate Agents, Twice winner of the Sunday Times National Estate Agent of the Year
“We were always good at what we did but not very good at telling people. Marketing Wizdom made us think outside the box and it has given us a strong platform to build on. It gives you the tools to look at and polish what you do. It teaches you the discipline of putting everything you and your competitors do under the microscope to deliver a better product or service that goes way beyond what customers would ever expect. And it results in growth of the business, more customer focus and greater profits.

We won the premier award in our industry, The Sunday Times National Estate Agent of The Year, for 2 years running, making us the “Best Estate Agent in the UK.” We couldn't have achieved that without Marketing Wizdom. And whereas we were always the alternative estate agent in our area, we’re now number one.”
Robert Wagner
CEO, DPG Plc, the UK’s No.1 provider of professional HR qualifications
“Before Marketing Wizdom , we employed five or six staff and turned over around £700,000 a year. We now have over £4.5M turnover, and within our field of professional HR qualifications, we're the UK market leader. For every £10 we spend on online advertising, we now get approximately £6-700 worth of income, so it has really transformed our business.

I believe Marketing Wizdom is one of the world’s best kept secrets and if you’re ever invited to join its mentoring program I would advise you to jump at it with both feet and grab it with both hands because it really has transformed our business and it's helping to do that month-in, month-out.”

“I’m SO pleased that I came on this workshop because it has been mind-blowing. I’ve been on a lot of courses since starting my business in 1985 but this is the best thing I’ve ever been on. I wish I’d been on it YEARS ago. It has blown my mind away."
"What really fascinated me about Robert’s course was this is a formatable way of taking all of those learnings and using them....Buy it today!”

Zef Eisenberg
Founder, Maximuscle, Europe's No.1 Sports Nutrition Supplier and former National winner of Ernst & Young 'Young Entrepreneur of the Year' award. 
“Probably one of the most useful three days I’ve ever taken out of the office.  The computer software, where you can take down all the notes and take away a blueprint so you forget nothing, is for me the number one reason for coming on this course. You lose nothing, you remember everything and you’ve got a bible. This is brilliant! 

It has been everything I expected it to be. Obviously you and me go back some time so I know what you can deliver”
“As a member of an award winning team at Radio 1 we did a lot of work around creativity and putting the audience at the heart of everything we do. This course has taken all the ideas we learned in programme making  & applied virtually all of them to commercial marketing thinking."
“The course explained the many different aspects of marketing. I will now be looking at those individual aspects very carefully, rethink what we’re doing and make alterations that will lead to many incremental increases in the business.”
Neil Shah
Founder & Director, The Stress Management Society and author of the book “The 10-step Stress Solution.”
“I’m confident that by applying just a few of these ideas we will be able to revolutionise how our business operates.  I now know that there has already been a massive return on my investment”
"Robert’s immense breadth and depth of experience, knowledge and marketing expertise surpasses anyone else that I’ve ever worked with."
"I now have a whole list of ideas that I can activate straight away & can put new strategies in place to get business that we’ve just not been getting. ”
"I know that if we implement the strategies we’ll be more successful than we’ve been so far, and we’re pretty successful now.”
Robert Tame
Co-owner, Fine Burger, Coffee Dogs & Fine Chicken, Premium quick service food outlets
“ I’ve got some invaluable tools from this course that I probably didn’t even know existed and I’m excited and re-energised. I’ve shifted in terms of the way I’ve been thinking of things. I feel privileged. I feel that I’ve got an edge that some of my competitors won’t have.”
“ I can’t imagine anyone NOT getting something from this regardless of background or years spent marketing"
“I am now excited by the potential opportunities I have for really accelerating the growth of my business.”
"Robert has encyclopaedic knowledge, he also has a unique way of explaining marketing and communicates it very, very clearly."
“The blogs and copy that Robert had written inspired me to go on the course and I can honestly say that I’ve not been disappointed. ”
"I’m now so excited and motivated to get back to the office to implement the practical quick strategies that I’ve learned."
Joe Scarborough
Founder, Snax Group
“What I’ve learned in 3 days would have taken me 5-10 years and if I were to quantify the value of this workshop, I would say it’s worth millions! There are things I will implement within my business that will make a massive difference. I would 100% recommend this programme to anyone who is looking to put themselves 5-10 years ahead in business.”
“I am now aware of things I haven’t done that I should be doing. It’s done in such a way that ANYONE can take something away from this.”"
“It has given me some very simple, very clear and very practical things that I’m going to do immediately that I’m sure will have an impact."
“Don’t think of it as a marketing course…think of it as a business course that’s worth investing in!"
"This workshop was both thought provoking and filled with practical advice.”
“This course smashed all the pre-conceived ideas I had about marketing. It gets you thinking of the deeper realms of how you can market your business & will redesign the way that you do business .”
Faisal Aziz
Sales Director, Adams Cash & Carry
"It’s an amazing experience, it will change your life … it’s changed my life already and I’ve just finished the course & it’s already planted the seeds.  I’m starting to enjoy the fruits of it already.  It will re-wire your brain and it’s an amazing experience!”
“You might think you already know it all but I can guarantee that you don’t ... you'll take away so much you can apply almost immediately.”
"I’ve learned that there are some very very simple, straightforward, easy techniques that’ll give me the opportunity to move further upmarket."
"... anybody that joins this course will be listening to an authoritative figure in the industry.”
““I’m walking away with a list of 14 points that I will action over the next 2-3 weeks which will have a significant impact.”
"I was completely taken aback when the level of information surpassed any expectations I had"
“This workshop has given a new level of confidence 
If you think you know marketing and sales, think again because Robert has some deep and serious insights that he can share.”
“I think of one of the key things that I’ve found is that I’ve been very much focused on the selling and that’s wrong! ”
Matthew Blake
Director, Adviser Breakthrough Group
“... every session there’s something completely new that you weren’t expecting and it makes you want to run off back to the business and implement it."
"Robert is credible…he’s been there, he’s seen it, he’s done it.”
"I’ve taken away practical advice, new ideas of where to focus my marketing efforts and research that I need to do first"
"I now feel re-energised and I feel I believe in what I’m doing"
Robert Drew
CEO Europe Middle East and Africa, Vistage International, World's No.1 Organisation for Chief Executives
“Your workshop has far exceeded my expectations … I’ve had around 10 businesses in my life, the biggest got to 46% market share, so I thought I was a pretty good businessman but I don’t think I have ever listened so intently for three days and not been tired. It’s been phenomenally informative. In my MBA I probably learned 1% of what you’ve taught us in the last three days. It’s going to help our business tremendously ... thank you.”
Joni Hawkes
For 10 years Vice President of Worldwide Marketing at the Coca-Cola Company, Atlanta GA. Former BrandWeek Marketing Manager of the Year
“Robert is truly one-of-a-kind and an absolute pleasure to work with.  His personal commitment to continuous learning and his naturally encyclopedic mind of case studies makes him exceptionally valuable as a business partner. His passion for entrepreneurship and genuine desire to see others succeed were inspirational to us in the early stages of getting our new business off the ground.”
“I would recommend this course to any business owners who are looking to grow and develop their businesses.
“I thought I didn’t like marketing but I’ve found out I quite enjoy it & I’m looking forward to starting to apply everything I’ve learnt"
Fiona Grant

“The most valuable things that I’m taking away is that I can do this….  you’re given skills that you can actually put into real action. Sceptics may ask “is it really for me?” – I think it’s for anyone that has any influence in a business. 

Robert will give you the tools to enable you to make a change in your business.”
Christopher Goodheart
CEO, Tickets.com, Global ticketing technology company
“I’ve been in business for 32 years and just wish I’d had a workshop like this 12 years ago, 22 years ago, 32 years ago. It would have made a huge difference to what I’ve done over that time. It’s been interesting because I was doubtful before I came that this was actually the right kind of workshop for us, but it certainly has been and I’m very pleased with it. It’s reinforced a lot of ideas which we’ve been trying to put into practice without huge success … we now need to apply what we’ve learned. Although we’ve had strategy away days for the management team this has been enormously valuable. Certainly from my point of view it’s a realisation that I need to put aside one or two days every week just dealing with strategy. It’s been great, thanks very much indeed.”
Julie Gibbons
Founder, Pure Media, Design/IT
“This workshop has taken the mystery out of marketing for me and is great value. It has shown me that with common sense, structure, planning and sharing information, we can become a successful business without having to break our backs in the process. It’s taught me to look through my customers’ eyes, to treat them like gold, to reassure them that they have made a good decision which they will continue to enjoy and to clearly define what they need and how we can deliver that in the most efficient and customer friendly way. It will not only help us to retain our customers but will also make us happier in ourselves and create pride in what we are building, making every day more of a pleasure for all concerned.”
Robert Burley
Honeywell Aerospace
“I’ve learned an awful lot about understanding the customer base and their needs and how acting on a multi-layered plan will multiply its effects. I now realise how much of what I do is a total waste of time so there’s a whole host of things that I’m not going to do any more, because they’re almost valueless. I never realised before that the USP is a whole library that you can make available and dip into and select when you need it. It has been enormously powerful to recognise that. I now have a COMPLETE plan for growth with an end result, not just more questions. Thoroughly enjoyable. So thank you.”
Steve McGrady
Founder, Meridian 1, Change Management Consultancy
“If you are serious about growing a successful business you can’t afford to miss this workshop. Probably my biggest single fear was that a) my business idea might not be quite right b) I might not be able to compete against the existing encumbents, some of whom are very big, very rich, very powerful, and have been around for a long long time. I now realise the problems and issues people have with existing management consultants and it’ll be very easy to create a very open honest ethical informative educational truthful document, pitch or whatever that completely positions what I do. So the workshop has clearly identified the most important strategies and their priority and dependency, which means that I will now be able to launch into a difficult market with confidence and optimism. It’s exceeded my expectations and moved my ideas forward in three days probably the equivalent of a year, so from my perspective it’s been incredibly valuable. Thank you.”
John Wigham
Director, Chase Consulting Group, Management Consultants
“Before coming on this workshop we had spoken about whether we REALLY could afford this time, because we’re just so damn busy in trying to grow the business and it’s a bit like ”I haven’t got time for this gatling gun, I’m fending the invaders off the ramparts with my spear, go away.” Of course we didn’t know this workshop would turn out to be a gatling gun. I thought I was going to hear a lot of things I had heard before. I thought I knew how to run businesses, but I’ve learned things. It’s a bit like  someone’s now gone ”Hey, have a look at this …” and I’ve now looked at it and thought ”Oh! Them shiny things are like the shiny things I’ve got, only they’re bigger and better!” I now understand why things that I thought I was doing well are not having the effect that they should. So it’s given me clarity and more than anything else, focus. It has lasered us down onto two or three things that we really just have got to do, bar nothing. I suggest you go and listen with an open mind. You’ll understand why you’re not succeeding. You’ll understand what you have to do. More to the point, you’ll understand WHAT you need to do to be more effective, how to achieve it and how to deliver it.”
Scott Conchar
Co-founder, Talisman Partnership, Owner and operator of a small chain of bars and restaurants
“What was really really enlightening for me was the clarity of the strategies, how simple they are if you choose to implement them, and how fruitful they can become. As with any business, the simpler the concept or strategy is to implement, the more productive, efficient and enjoyable it’s going to be, and that’s what for me has really come out of these three days. It took me a long time and several meetings to decide “OK I’m going to pay the money to do this.” For a business of our size the outlay for this course seemed hard to justify. I thought I was doing a pretty good job as it was. It’s only a 3-day course, how much can I learn in an extra 3 days? But each night I’ve gone home and I’ve just been buzzing. I’d say now that it was the 3 most enlightening days I’ve ever had in my life and from where I’m sitting now, I’d pay double. Even so, I would still find it very difficult to explain the benefits of this course to my friends and business colleagues. if I tried to put over the full power and potential of it in black and white, I couldn’t even scrape the surface of what you would get from it. So I would say just trust me, you need to go on it. Until this point I thought I was going in the right direction, and all was going well. But now it’s like “PING! The sleeper has awoken!”
Doug Brownlie
Managing Director, Parity plc, UK’s No.1 IT Training Company
“I came into the workshop with some pre-knowledge because I’ve known Robert for a while. I’ve always been skeptical, exceptionally skeptical, about marketing. And what has really hit me over the three days is that I’ve been wrong. I’ve relied on vastly expensive organisations in the past to put campaigns together for me and I’ve spent a whole wad of money … big, big, millions of pounds … on campaigns that I don’t think really were done correctly – and certainly done by people who didn’t have this knowledge. We would have been much better having gone on one of Robert’s events years ago and applying this knowledge internally, so it has been excellent and I’m chuffed to bits. The effect on me is far beyond what I expected and it exceeded my expectations in all areas. I also loved the interaction by the way. As a Managing Director I was challenged in my thinking and motivated to explore some ways to maximise growth. You should not miss an upcoming event.”
Chris Kenney
Director, Cap Coder, Packaging Machine Manufacturer
“I’ve done an awful lot of courses in my life so I thought here we go again, another crusty boring thing, but actually it wasn’t crusty and boring at all. For me this has been a mind-opening experience into something I knew nothing about. It’s made me look at things quite differently and I suspect that anything we’ve done until now, however well intentioned, has been blundering around in the dark. Now I believe that there’s a candle to illuminate that darkness. We’re going to look at things totally differently from now on. You presented it very very well, and you’ve made the subject exciting, whereas I was always doubtful about marketing people before because no-one knew what they were doing, they often inflicted crazy ideas on us all and frequently they were impractical. But this is a practical course. A scientific approach to marketing without going into mumbo-jumbo. It’s been three very enjoyable days. Go. It will open your mind.”
Nigel Smith
Managing Director, Addison Buildings, Conservatory & Outbuilding Manufacturer
“We are flooded by competition and we’re fed up with getting nowhere and banging our head on the wall trying to promote ourselves. What we’ve been through in the last 3 days has really opened our eyes up to the potential. Very well researched and planned. Easy to follow in well planned stages. Great software. Very good insight into marketing. We now see the whole picture not just small fragmented parts. It will allow us to rise above everybody else and set new standards in the way we work, the things we do, the products we offer and the way we market ourselves. The evidence you’ve given us over the three days is very very compelling and it all fits into place just as you said it would at the very beginning, so it’s been very very useful. Thank you.”
Alan Suggitt
Parity plc, UK’s No.1 IT Training Company
“It’s 1,000 times better than I expected. I didn’t think any course would ever make me more enthusiastic than I already am, and this has done it. The whole three days has been completely and utterly 100% inspiring. We now have an absolutely clear plan as to what we need to do next, all the steps that we need to take, and how we get there, right down to the nuts and bolts. It’s not just conceptual stuff, it’s the actual day to day ”there it is, and that’s what you do to do it.” I just wish I’d done this 10 years ago. I can’t praise it enough. I expected it to be telling us things I already knew. It’s thrown everything I did know on its head and made me start again. I’ve now got a plan to do about ten times better even the things I thought I was strong in and knew. I look at them now and think ”no there’s a far better, more effective way of doing all this.” And that’s really blown me away. The whole thing about reducing attrition has also been stunning for me.”
Jonas Zambakides
Founder, JZ Mactech, UK’s No.1 Independent Porsche Specialist and President of the Independent Garages Association
“I have been searching and searching for some sort of guidance and it’s nearly impossible to find. I now feel that I’ve found a way of harnessing what I have inside me and this course has started to link a lot of things together. Long term it’ll allow me to apply a scientific approach to everything I’ve had ideas for. I’ve been desparate to find that personally because I’ve had no training ever, I was terrible at school, never went to college, and I’ve never been on business courses. Yet I was always sure that I could improve what other people were doing. This has been extremely beneficial and it’s exceeded all my expectations because I’m very cynical about the idea of paying someone a few £ thousand and making your life better … but it’s proved to me that there are good people out there, it’s just a matter of finding them. I would advise any other business to take the chance and go on this workshop. You’ve got nothing to lose and all to gain.”
Phil Harrison
Director, CGP Engineering, Plastic Moulding Toolmakers
“Well quite worryingly really, it’s made me realise after going through this excellent software that we’ve managed to stay in business and go as far as we have through complete brickwall stupidity and enthusiasm. I don’t really quite know how we managed to do it to be honest. And yes, it’s highlighted our complete ineptitude when it comes to running a business, from the marketing point of view. I have a host of things I will take back to the company and work through from now for the forseeable future. Masses of ammunition and new opportunities. Working through the software has made me realise the differences our company has compared to the 20 others that are within 3 miles of us, let alone everyone else in the local area, so yes the workshop has been a really positive experience and we’ll now get somewhere and become a lot more professional. Thanks a lot.”
