This isn’t a hard sell, we simply share with you the opportunity and then move on. This is delivered on day 1, it gets it out of the way and then the rest of the Masterclass is to be enjoyed.
Not everyone in the room chooses to work with us more closely but 100% of the room always give outstanding feedback on the content, presentation and value of the Masterclass.
Our guarantee is that it is.
You can have your money back if not. But don’t take it from us, listen to what your peers who have attended have to say about the AVN Masterclass by clicking on the videos below…
At AVN we’re passionate about helping Accountants in Practice and would love to help all of them however, we know from our experience that whilst we always receive feedback that’s rated as Excellent and Outstanding, a certain sized practice will have the most success in implementing the strategies we share.
Although there are exceptions we find that the Accountancy Practice owners that get the most out of the AVN Masterclass are :-
On the smaller end of the spectrum:-
- Established with a client base and turning over more than £50K
- Having at least 1 employee helps with implementing the ideas and actions you’ll come away with.
On the higher end of the spectrum:-
- A firm with more than 3 partners will struggle to implement anything unless most of the partners attend.
- We won’t work with top 20 firms.
Size aside, if you’d like to ascertain if you have areas within your practice that would be improved by attending the Masterclass, take a few moments to answer the questionnaire on our free Practice Diagnostic Tool.
We believe that a good balance between…
- Successful practitioners– who come along solely to share their stories and innermost success secrets with you
- Your fellow delegates– the leaders of ambitious accounting practices like yours
- And led by some of the world’s most respected advisers to the profession click each name to learn about the Masterclass Speakers…
