Here’s what you get in Summit SCALE® ESSENTIALS!
Series One: Creating Clear Strategic Competitive Advantage
Overview: Clarifying your vision is the first building block of strategic planning. We start by addressing the critical strategic questions that need to be addressed to scale your business. The visionary framework begins with establishing your core values, purpose and clarifying your long-term vision for your business. This sets the guiding principles for all your strategic planning.
Then we get to the heart of it – how we succinctly articulate your growth strategy and how you will succeed in making your vision a reality. In understanding your marketplace, you must identify your core customers, establish your brand promise and unique differentiators that will create competitive advantage.
With a clear long-term vision in place, you’re ready to establish medium-term goals and short-term priorities (the planning piece) that contribute to you achieving the vision.
Our aim here is to start to reduce the time it takes you and your top team to manage the operational activities of the business and the team efforts on scaling and market-facing activities.
Series Two: Aligning for Consistent Execution and Results
Overview: Building momentum is about making your vision a reality. And this is where the rubber really begins to hit the road. Because it’s where a lot of strategy fails. It’s not the strategy that’s the problem, it’s execution that is the problem.
Our aim is to embed the critical tools and processes required to align everyone else in the organisation (onto the same page) to consistently drive execution and results.
The series modules are structured around three key Momentum components of the Summit SCALE® Model:
Data: You will create a Scorecard, a dynamic measurement process for your business, that will provide you with the metrics and data to enable you to see if the right things are happening and red flagging if they’re not. This puts your strategy at the centre of running your business, not control.
Pulse: You will design and embed a rhythm of weekly, monthly, quarterly & annual meetings to bring focus, alignment and solve problems more quickly and receive tools that ensure these meetings will be effective.
System: We’ll share cash management strategies and collection practices to allow you to fund your growth freeing you from reliance on banks and/or investors as well as some initiatives to constantly improve the cash flow of your company.
Series Three: Leading Organisational Performance and Growth
Overview: Condition is about ensuring your people and organization function effectively.
The goal here is to help you personally do less by getting your business to produce more.
We do this by providing you tools like the ‘People Assessor’ to help you identify if existing employees or potential candidates are a ‘fit’ for your business and if they are ideal for a particular role. If someone isn’t, we’ll provide you with tools to help manage the situation in the right way for you, the individual and your business – both in the short and long term. We’ll also show you are great tool to help with designing a structure that is going to take you to the next level.
The series module is structured around a key Condition component of the Summit SCALE® Model:
Team: How to get the right people in the right seats and then continually develop them. How to clarify accountabilities for functions and structure your organization for the next level of growth.
Program Duration: A minimum of 4 hours per week for 12 weeks

And if you want to know more about what makes Summit SCALE® unique, here’s eight reasons that our clients tell us why Summit SCALE® is their #1 choice when it comes to embedding proven business scaling model into their businesses.
Reason #1: Unlike a lot of coaches and advisers, I’ve been there and done it. I’ve successfully led and scaled 7, 8 & 9- figure rapid growth businesses
Have you paid money in the past to a coach or advisor only to find that a few months later there’s very little to show for it?
How can I be so confident that I can help your business get great results? That’s a fair question.
The answer is straightforward – I’ve been there and done it.
Unlike a lot of business coaches, consultants and advisors, I have actually been in the leadership hot seat of rapid growth 7, 8 & 9-figure businesses.
And through my hands-on experience, I have developed a tried & tested formula (and took-kit) for doing it again and again.
Imagine tapping into this proven formula. No more guessing; no more struggling; no more doubting yourself or your decisions. Just clear action steps and structured accountability leading to consistent growth and greater time freedom.
Reason #2: You’ll see measurable and deliverable results in 90 days, and ongoing, providing you take accountability and action
Often when leaders are advised on developing a new strategy, they start by looking for places to grow. This may feel like the right thing to do, but it can be a misleading and even dangerous way to begin a strategic exercise.
There are an infinite number of ways that a company can try to grow, and simply brainstorming them will immediately lead to a long list of initiatives.
Most growing organisations have too many priorities to achieve the level of focus they need to succeed. Wanting to cover all their bases, they establish a long list of disparate objectives and spread their scarce time, energy, and resources across them all.
The result is almost always a lot of initiatives done in a mediocre way and a failure to accomplish what matters most. This reality is best captured in the wonderful adage, “If everything is important, nothing is.”
Scaling a business is about taking one significant step at a time and then checking data and adjusting accordingly.
In fact, creating a 90-day world is a core premise of the Summit SCALE® Model. Rather than be overwhelmed by the monumental task of accomplishing your vision, 90-day priorities allow you to break it down into bite-sized chunks and focus on making it stick.
And because it is a simple, step-by-step process, you just focus on one task at a time, without going ‘snow-blind’.
This keeps you focused, with consistent action, backed up by my hands-on support, day-by-day. You’ll even have my personal mobile phone number to call whenever you need it.
So there’s no delays, no hesitation and no procrastination. Just relentless implementation and delegation as you progress.
Reason #3: We carry the risk, not you, with our ‘try now, pay later’ risk reversal guarantee which means you never risk a penny
Most coaches and trainers ask you to trust them. They say something to the effect of “give me your money and then I’ll deliver the value”.
But unfortunately, all too often people give them money only to find that the value delivery failed to make any significant difference to their business.
And if you’ve been through that experience of losing money by investing in people or courses that didn’t work out, then you’ll be pleased to know that you don’t have to trust me … instead, I’ll trust you.
How that works is simple: if you choose to cash flow your payments, then we’ll work together for a whole month without you paying or risking even one penny.
If at the end of that month you think that I’m not delivering, simply email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and your credit card will not be charged.
This means I carry the risk, not you.
This is what I call “Risk Reversal” meaning that instead of you, my client, carrying the risk, I’ll carry it instead.
So…let me trust you, rather than me asking you to trust me.
Now, isn’t that a refreshing change?
Please note, that this Risk Reversal Guarantee does not apply if a person simply doesn’t show up. It only applies if you think that I’m not delivering on my promise.
And BTW, Risk Reversal is far superior to a money back guarantee offer.
Because with a money back guarantee, there is actually no guarantee that you’ll get your money back and besides, who wants to even have to ask for their money back?
Reason #4: Summit SCALE® is specifically for owners and leaders of 7 to 8-figure fast growth businesses
This is very important!
Both in the UK and the USA only 4% of businesses make it to 7-figure revenue. Of those only 10% make it to 8-figure revenue.
That means there are around 96% of businesses that simply can’t make it to 7-figure revenue.
Between 7 and 8-figures there are some very specific obstacles to do with complexity, growth cycles and market dynamics that need to be overcome.
To reach the next level, you need to intentionally map out a plan to get there, and then execute that plan with determination and momentum.
Either you keep doing what you’re doing, barely maintaining the same revenue year after year, and slide backwards, or you move forward with tremendous intentionality.
The world is full of “living dead” companies that reached a plateau and couldn’t grow to the next one. You’re either moving forward or moving back.
Staying still is not sustainable.
Summit SCALE® has been specifically developed for 7 to 8-figure business owners in mind. The model recognises the specific barriers and dynamics of rapid business growth between these levels of revenue and the particular needs of owners at this stage of a business’s development.
When you select someone to help you implement a 7 to 8-figure business growth model, it is critical that you find a specialist who knows how to navigate the obstacles and dynamics between 7 to 8-figures of revenue.
If they are predominantly working with clients of less than 7-figure revenue it’s inevitable that they’ll struggle to offer you such specialised advice and your business growth efforts will likely be affected.
Reason #5: Summit SCALE® works – it’s built on real-world company successes including delivering 2000% growth in 8 years
One of my greatest successes includes being part of leadership team that grew a real estate business 2000%, from SME to FTSE 250 company, in 8 years.
Many of the Summit SCALE® strategies, tools, techniques and best practices were applied and developed with the help of world-class advisors in growing this business.
There are many nuances and subtleties to get right. And these are often only learned through the hard knocks that come with having actually led rapid growth businesses.
Growing a business is a dynamic process as the leadership team navigates the evolutions and revolutions of growth. And like the growth stages of a child, they are predictable and unavoidable.
To deal with these challenges, the company must increase the number of capable leaders throughout the organisation, embed scalable systems and controls to manage increasing complexities that come with growth; and stay on top of the market dynamics that affect the business.
To do this, the leadership team must master three core fundamentals: setting strategy, driving execution and leading people.
The Summit SCALE® Model is organized around these critical decision areas, providing you with the tools, techniques, and best practices for making the critical judgement calls that drive growth.
Reason #6: The model is premised on helping you personally do less by getting your business to do more
With Summit SCALE® I help my clients build a business that they can one day sell, scale, or even own passively.
A business firmly founded on the stable base of scalable leadership, scalable systems and scalable marketing.
To achieve this, I work with my clients on three key deliverables:
1.Significantly reduce the time it takes the top team to manage the operational activities of the business. Refocus the team on scaling and market-facing activities.
2.Embed the tools, processes and systems required to align everyone else in the organisation (onto the same page) to consistently drive execution and results.
3.Help you personally do less by getting your business to produce more. Develop your capacity to continually set strategy and create the conditions for your organisation to scale and grow rapidly.
Not only will this allow you to grow your company, but more importantly it will reduce your company’s vulnerability should anything happen to you. This protects you, your team, and your customers.
A word of caution: This takes a serious commitment to learning to work in new ways. If you’re looking for a magic bullet, Summit Leader™ Program isn’t for you. It’s for serious business owners who want to legitimately break through to the next level and build a thriving, owner-independent company.
Reason #7: Summit SCALE® takes complicated methods and makes them simple and practical
l’ll be the first to put my hand up and say that some of my proven Summit SCALE® methods have a lot of moving parts.
But everything in Summit SCALE® is delivered to you broken down into a step-by-simple-step, process.
For example, when I ask you to create your one-page strategic plan, I’ll walk you through the sequence one step at a time.
And I’ll give you guides, templates and examples to make it easier and more effective for you to complete every one of those steps.
And that’s not all.
I also meet with you personally, every week (apart from when you or I are on holiday) to talk with you and review your work plus I give you specific feedback of exactly what you need to change and how to change it, should you need that advice.
Summit SCALE™ makes the complicated simple, by breaking down every step into a simple, short and easier to achieve step.
Reason #8: You get 110% commitment from me and my team.
I don’t have the time, nor inclination, to work with dozens of Clients at the same time. I get results because I am very choosy who I work with.
So, if you and I decide to work together, here’s what you can expect
1. I will take personal responsibility for your success, and you’ll have my personal mobile phone number – so you can contact me with questions whenever and wherever. (The reason I’m happy to give my clients my personal mobile number, is that I know from experience that they’ll hardly ever have to use it).
2. Let me underline that it’s ME you’ll be working with. So whilst I have a team of trusted associates and colleagues on-hand to help when needed, you won’t get passed on to some junior, inexperienced assistant who is still learning their trade.
3. I’ll be helping, guiding, cajoling and supporting you and your team day-by-day. So as well as my mobile phone, there’s the private member’s chat group, the online learning portal and my personal email address, as well as our weekly Q&A video session. So you can be certain you are not going to be lost in some sort of ‘group coaching VIP Membership’ money-suck operation (I know it happens because I’ve been there).
I think that’s about it!
The above reasons are solid, specific and differentiated to the point where you will very likely and quite rightly believe that there is simply no better choice for embedding a proven business growth model into your business other than Summit SCALE®.
Your honour, I rest my case.
