A Telemarketing Masterclass

The Kings Church, Burgess Hill, RH15 9LR


This masterclass workshop will be led by Anthony Stears aka "The Telephone Assassin". Anthony will show you how to generate great leads over the phone with ease, and will cure any feeling of "phone phobia".

Full money back guarantee - Anthony is so confident that you will walk away with a whole new attitude towards making new-business calls, that if you don't leave feeling more confident when you pick up the phone you can have your money back, no questions asked.

Bid Writing Workshop

21st September

The Kings Church, Burgess Hill, RH15 9LR


The grant funding landscape is mercilessly competitive. With more and more organisations chasing less and less money it is harder than ever to be successful. Some funding streams have an average success rate of just 2%. On top of this, research shows that a third of all proposals submitted are rejected due to being ineligible, and should never have been submitted in the first place.

Applications are now open and businesses will first be required to complete an Expression of Interest Form (EOI) which we will review to decide whether the applicant will be invited to make a full application. Submissions for EOI will close on 30 September 2016 at 12 noon or before, if the amount of funding available (£2,457,000) is awarded prior to this final deadline date.
