You can always learn so much more from failure than you can from success.
So why is it that nobody talks about Failure?
In 2008, my business was significantly impacted by the collapse of Woolworths. A National ‘institution’ on the high street, that subsequently failed.
I’ve spent well over 4 years researching, not only the Woolworths collapse, but more than 150 other National Businesses that failed. And the findings were SHOCKING.
I have used this research, combined with my own knowledge and experience, along with case study examples from Businesses I’ve either coached, mentored or in some other way supported over the past 14 years to put together this highly topical and impactful Keynote.
“Most people think small, whereas, I think BIG; and that automatically gives me a great advantage” – Warren Buffett
Once I’d correlated all the research, I wanted to understand at what stage of a businesses growth, do the flaws I had identified first form. and when and why do we choose to ignore them?
Having now surveyed well over 100,000 Businesses, I was horrified to learn more than 80% of businesses possess at least one of the three most fundamental flaws we identified. My conclusions to this research showed that whilst we are taught much within our time in School, College, Academies and Universities. VERY few are ever taught HOW to run a progressively growing business!
What I’ll Share…
In this highly emotive, impactful and thought provoking Keynote, I challenge audiences to THINK BIG, and shows how thinking differently is crucial to achieving FAR more than they would otherwise have ever considered themselves capable.
I’ll share the devastating impact not having the 3 ESSENTIAL elements has on business as they SCALE, and how this results in their eventual downturn.
I’ll show the impact implementing these NOW can have on your future business success.
Testimony to this, is no less than 7 clients with whom I’ve coached to apply this learning into their businesses have gone on to become National Finalists at the Entrepreneur of the Year Awards.
Who is this for?
This is a MUST for SME (up to 250 employee’s) Business Owners who are ready to hit the accelerator and SCALE their already growing business.
Whilst there is LOTS to get through in this 45,60 or 90 min Keynote, it is also highly informative, educational and interactive. I’m delighted to be able to share the content I’ve gleaned from having previously worked to add more than £400M to a PLC business, saved more than 1,400 jobs and set up 4 of my own businesses!
A final word…
This is not a light hearted, fluffy after dinner speech. This is a grab the audience by the scruff of the neck and give it a good shake, kind of empowerment that makes everyone STOP, and think differently about them and their effectiveness in EVERYTHING they do!
Jam packed with Golden Nuggets and practical application giveaways, this is a must for those seeking the inspiration and means to GET BIG or GO HOME!
Jay recently spoke at an event I hosted as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week. His speech immediately captured the audience, as he carefully guided them on a journey of self discovery. It was truly an amazing presentation, filled with emotion, enthusiasm and MANY easy to use ‘take aways’ for us to implement. He gave an ‘above and beyond presentation from start to finish and the effect he had on everyone present was almost hypnotic, enabling people to realise their own goals, current hurdles and most importantly how to smash through them to achieve.

Jay delivered an amazing keynote speech at the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants conference. The whole room listened to a awe inspiring but very humble account which chartered his journey from “Battlefield to Boardroom”. It was a very engaging presentation, humorous but very thought provoking with lots of great nuggets of information on why focus, drive, planning is important, but also the need to continually survey your surrounding and watch out for those curved balls, catch them, learn from them and move on.
I recently attended one of Jay’s highly interactive masterclasses, and was literally blown away with the emotion, connectivity and openness from Jay. I’ve seen many speakers, but non quite as open and honest about their own lives to demonstrate the transformation which unfolds. My colleagues and I really enjoyed the day, got far more than we had envisaged, and are now busy working on applying our learnings for the greater benefit of all.

I have worked with Jay many times over the past 3 years. In all my dealings with him, his commitment, enthusiasm, understanding of requirement, delivery and support have been first class. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to speak at any event, and wish him every continued success

Just completed the GET BIG or Go Home Masterclass with Jay. “I loved it” – The final UN slide really resonated with me. We are a Social Communications company but I think we need to think bigger on how we impact some of the significant challenges facing the world. – Jay was engaging, very well prepared and willing to provide the help and support, tailoring his content to each person on the course, exceptional.
