We’re a Top 10 Adviser for Enterprise Nation

Top 10 adviser

We’ve been announced as one of the Top 10 Advisors in the UK for 2021 by Enterprise Nation, and the Top Adviser for Finance & Funding!

Enterprise Nation said

“Never before has the role of adviser been so important. The past 18 months have been one of the most challenging in history but, thanks to Enterprise Nation’s network of all-star advisers, many small businesses have been able to ride out – and emerge from – the storm.

We’re inviting advisers to be nominated by small business owners or nominate themselves across 10  categories to choose the Top 50 Advisers in the country.”

The 10 Adviser Categories:

Enterprise Nation seek out the Top 50 Advisors every year, and this year, in partnership with Dell and Avast there were 10 categories to celebrate Britain’s best and brightest advisers supporting small businesses across the UK, with 5 nominees in each category.

We’ve been awarded the Top Adviser in the UK for the Finance & Funding Category!

  1. Branding & Design: Aarti Parmar – AP Brand Communications
  2. Exporting: Nicola Thomas – A La Carte Consulting
  3. Finance & Funding: Sharon Pocock – Kinder Pocock
  4. Human Resources: Jay Bhayani – Bhayani HR & Employment Law

Choosing the Top 10:

What Enterprise Nation said:

During these tough times, Sharon has worked so hard to ensure her clients are kept informed on all important financial matters.

Swinging into action to decipher government communications during the early days of Covid-19, Sharon’s stellar work providing essential calls, action plans and webinars has helped numerous small businesses in a state of crisis.

What Sharon said:

I’m completely overwhelmed that we’re included in the Top 10 Advisers this year. This isn’t an award we’ve entered, which makes it even more humbling! It is our mission to support as many small businesses as possible, and during this last 18 months, this has never been so crucial. Together with my awesome team, we’ve pulled out all the stops and pushed the usual day work to one side, in an effort to help everyone to survive and build back up again.

Most importantly: How we’re giving back:

Sharon’s Top 10 Advisers award is in recognition of the support we’ve given to all small business during the past 18 months.

In the spirit of giving back, we’d like to offer a Getting Clear Action Plan session to get you back on their feet, and support you to make a plan for the next 12 months.

Our Getting Clear Action Plan is generating outstanding results for our most successful clients, and we want to make sure you get access to that level of success too.

This session is usually £695 plus VAT, but we’re offering it at £300 plus VAT for our first 10 clients, who book between now and 31 March 2022. It will then increase to £475 for the next 10, before reverting to £695 plus VAT.

All you need to do is book a Getting Clear action plan slot here, and we’ll be in touch with all the details, so don’t hang around!

Find out more about our action plan sessions here, and how having an accountability buddy will boost your business to the next level!

And to give back even more, for everyone who signs up to a Getting Clear Action Plan session, we will automatically give 1 day access to social entrepreneurship education to a student in the Philippines through the B1G1 programme.

Here are some of the great things our clients are saying about the getting clear action plan:

“If we didn’t make the time to meet you every month we wouldn’t keep moving forward”

“Thanks so much for today. I felt so empowered after our meeting. I’ve got so much done already”
