NewsRecruitTipsVirtual ‘school’ Trades & Construction

A new online training academy designed exclusively for the trades and construction sector will launch on Tuesday 26th January.  In a first for the industry, the Build and Grow Academy is set to be the go-to place for business owners to get the skills and knowledge to transform their business and get ahead of their competition.

The Build and Grow Academy is the latest brainchild of entrepreneur and best-selling author Alison Warner, known as the ‘Trades Coach.  The UK’s leading business coach for the trades and construction industry, Alison has turned around the fortunes of hundreds of businesses, achieving record sales and profit margins.

Alison Warner, Founder of Evolve and Grow Coaching said “It became clear that people running small trades and construction businesses really needed somewhere they could turn to for advice and support. The Build and Grow Academy fills that gap; giving people affordable ongoing support that they can tap into, from their phone, or computer, at any time of the day.
Running a business can be lonely, and everyone will face different day to day hurdles, from sales, staffing, cashflow and workload.  The Academy gets people over those hurdles helping them build a stronger business and a healthier work-life balance.”

The Build and Grow Academy provides 7 business development courses designed specifically for trades and construction business owners, helping them take their company to the next level.

There are detailed workbooks and action guides for each of the 7 modules: Vision; The Numbers; Customer Service; People; Systems; Marketing and Sales.

Over the 12-month programme delegates will have a clear action plan to follow as well as videos, guides and online tips to take way.  Members will also benefit from exclusive monthly live Q & A sessions with Alison Warner and Facebook support.   The course is valued at £149 + VAT per month but there is an exclusive introductory offer of £97 + VAT for the first 50 that join the programme when it launches on 26th January, with sign up to the first intake closing on 28th February 2021.

Johnny Czarnota, Owner of Silver Lining Floor Care said:
“The Academy is brilliant and really good value for money for any trades business who wants to improve the way they run their business. You can learn the hard way and suffer the consequences or join a service like this that will guide you and give you access to a wider support network.
With no geographical limitations you can just log on whenever and wherever you are to keep learning and improving your knowledge.”

A former trouble-shooter for global brands such as Starbucks, Alison founded Evolve and Grow coaching company in 2010. She has won widespread acclaim for her pioneering work supporting trades and construction companies and was recently shortlisted as one of the UK’s Best Business Women.  Her Bestselling book Build and Grow: How to go from Tradesperson to Managing Director in the Construction and Trade Industries has become a seminal text for the sector winning 5-star reviews across the board.

John Newland Jenner, Owner of JNJ Building Solutions, who has worked with Alison, said:
“Alison has unlocked potential in me that I didn’t know I was capable of and combining that with her commitment and knowledge, we have almost doubled our monthly turnover.
I have completely come off the tools, attained office space, employed two more office staff, doubled the amount of projects that we run at one time and implemented systems that set us apart – all within 9 months.”
