I can go to the group with a pretty thorny problem, usually one that I couldn’t tackle with anyone at work, and gain unbiased but caring opinion.
As a leader it needs to start with you, spending time and money on yourself is a good return for your business.
Being part of the group has changed the way I think and communicate resulting in increased productivity from my team.
It’s the most valuable day I ever spend out of the business a month.
Educational, provocative, useful, entertaining, important
In the increasingly fast-paced world of business leadership it is our duty to always be working on the gap between our conscious incompetence so that it becomes our unconscious competence – the Academy bridges that gap and allows me to face our challenges with confidence.
Speaking for the Academy for Chief Executives enables me to work with business leaders who are keen to learn and are able to act on suggestions that are made in the sessions. I have the privilege of both challenging and being challenged by some of the UK’s best business leaders.
I have been an Academy Chairman for 16 years now and can honestly say the quality of my life improved from the moment I became involved. I learnt more, got inspired more and work with a wonderful group of people who, with the support we provide, are succeeding more all the time and are great to be with.
Having been a member for five years, I wanted to bring the Academy to South Yorkshire to give local leaders an opportunity to benefit from membership in the way I had. Being a Chairman is a real privilege that enables me to co-learn with my members, and continue to strive to be the best.

Accelerating the increase in the equity value of your business – and why it makes sense even if you never plan to sell… with Phil Ives – Bury (13 March 2018)
This is a unique opportunity to experience the benefits that Academy members gain each month as they access world class expert speakers, share learning and take part in peer board sessions to gain the view of other business leaders on their own particular challenges or opportunities in a confidential forum.
For our March meeting we will be joined by Phil Ives. Phil is a partner in Shirlaws Group and in Assay Advisory, specialises in fast growth businesses, runs interactive, informal and entertaining sessions focused on what you can do to increase equity value; why doing this doesn’t necessarily involve increasing profits or revenue – and why it makes great sense even if you never plan to sell.
More about the meeting:
The objective of the meeting is to give you an insight into how membership works and the benefits it brings to you and your business. You’d get a taste of what life is like being an Academy member and will have the opportunity to meet some of current members who will explain how membership has benefited them personally and professionally. There is no cost to attend other than your time.
