Business Growth Programmes


Welcome to Business Growth School®. We provide business owner-managers, entrepreneurs and consultants with the skills training, mentoring and implementation support all focussed on driving business growth in today’s world.


Business Growth Programmes bring:


  • SME Business Owner and Business Consultant Training,
  • and Business Owner Consultancy Services


Training and support are for business leaders, and delivered by business leaders, as our experts are highly experienced business managers and leaders in their own-right, who’ve got the battle scars, experienced the successes too.


Coupled with fully comprehensive academic online training, Business Growth School® programmes are designed to support you to ‘learn, plan and do’, as you strive to achieve step-change success.


Unlike traditional institutional business training, our Business Growth Programmes are designed to take the learning out of the classroom, support you in your post-study planning, and then most importantly, mentor you as you take action and start doing.


Our mission is to support our every student and client alike to learn, plan and implement long-term business growth success, and so yes, we’re a Business School®, but where we’re unique is that we’re here to not only advance your knowledge… we’re also here to support you to plan and implement too.


It’s when we see our clients not only transform their successes, but also to see them get their full energy back, get focus, experience inspirational motivation and feel lot happier about their day, whilst for our business consultants, to see them secure consistency in their projects and incomes, career freedom and become truly self-made.


If you’re looking for fast-track business training to support you to develop your business and skills, then you can enrol today or simply book a call with us to learn more.

About Our Founder Alan Crouch

Alan’s career went from salesperson to CEO, sales transformation consultant through to international sales and business growth trainer. Today, his experience includes him being an academic fellow for the Institute of Enterprise and Entrepreneurs, a visiting lecturer at Cambridge University, MBA, author and Business Growth Programme course director.


His beginnings were founded by ‘getting in the trenches’ and learning through experience. It was when Alan left ‘corporate’ and went into consulting, when he saw:


  • A lot of really very experienced former managers and executives trying to be consultants, coaches and Non-executive directors, who had little or no work, and


  • So many SME business owners and entrepreneurs, who were truly expert at what they did too, but where sales, selling and having a solid foundation in business skills were not either their first love or in place

Alan also saw that many ‘successful’ consultants, weren’t that good at consulting, coaching or adding real value, and in turn, there simply was too many honest-to-goodness business leaders being charged significantly high daily rates for really very questionable value outcomes and service.


As Alan developed his consulting business, he created a system to train expert business growth consultants to create highly a successful business, who could add truly game-changing value and deliver client service excellence.


He then created the Business Growth Programme for business leaders, to teach them in the very same skills to grow their business for the long-term too.


Alan identified that with everyone on the same page and working together, the outcomes would result in unprecedented growth for businesses.
