What Makes The Programme Unique?

There are lots of good training programmes that cover all the important stuff about starting a business. We go a step further and give you a support network, that will last beyond the life of the programme. Support will come from within the group – you will all have skills, knowledge and contacts you can share. Support will also come from the trainers, mentors and Coordinator. And the added touch is our wonderful Role model mentors who will get you thinking about your business journey.

Here is what participants on the last programmes said:

I loved my 121 time with my mentor, I found this invaluable as it really helped get my head around financials. Made some great connections/contacts and friends as well.

I can’t recommend Power of 4 enough. The network itself I have personally found to be one of the most profound aspects of the programme.

I have been complemented, inspired, but most importantly challenged to think about how to progress a hobby into a successful career. The personal experience of the role model mentors has been the most valuable part of the course as these ladies have “walked the walk” and “talked the talk”.
