Business coaching


Kingston Burrowes is committed to adding value for our clients, which is how we arrived at the decision to offer expert support in this area through our Business Growth Programme. Having delivered a successful business coaching programme earlier last year, we are now delighted to be able to provide another series of coaching workshops in Summer 2021.

What is the Business Growth Programme?
A practical and interactive business coaching programme aimed at businesses looking to take the next steps in their development. The programme will help you acquire the skills and expertise to develop and implement a structured growth strategy.

Based on an in-depth knowledge of your business, it will also enable you to develop new approaches to overcome specific challenges you may be experiencing.

Who Is It For?
The Business Growth Programme is relevant to established business owners looking for new direction and growth. You will have navigated the start-up phase already and be looking to take the development of your business to the next level. We have extensive experience in guiding businesses of all sizes and using our small group format we are able to tailor the content according to individual participants.

What Makes This Business Coaching Programme Different?
This programme helps to address business growth challenges by introducing the practical strategies that build a platform for sustainable business success. It is an interactive, hands on programme that will introduce you to tools and techniques that will deliver effective and definable change for your business and future proof it in these uncertain times.

Format of the Business Growth Programme
The Business Coaching programme consists of four half-day workshops delivered over a four-week period. We keep it simple and introduce key concepts which are followed by a group discussion and practical exercises to gain insight on how the concepts can be applied in your business. We will guide you through the process of building a robust Business and Financial Model to move you and your business forward.

Number of Participants
Each series of workshops will have only 6 participants, so we engage with each other meaningfully, and collectively go through the powerful process of reflection, insight and action.

Participant testimonial following our 2020 Programme

“At the beginning of 2020 I attended a series of workshops run by Ray Murphy and Jerry Irving run Kingston Burrowes accountants.

My purpose was to reframe my thinking from that of a freelancer to a business owner in a state of growth. It was the perfect course to help me with that, but as events turned out the timing was superb as the in-depth training around cashflow was perfect in helping me with running my business during lockdown.

Their style is jargon free, relaxed and supportive with many physical takeaways in the form of digital templates.

I’d have no hesitation in recommending this workshop to any small business owner or start up looking for solutions around business growth.”

Andy Fairgrieve, Primavista

“I am a new business owner and realise there is so much that I don’t know about how to develop my business and so when I heard about the Kingston Burrowes Business Growth Programme I felt it would be a fantastic opportunity to learn about how to start growing my business. 

The programme was very well delivered by Ray and Jerry, who are experts in their fields and able to provide practical real-life examples based on their experience rather than just feed us theory. They did so in an engaging way making it easier to understand and, although there was a lot of new information for me, they were able to provide it in a manner that was not too overwhelming. This has helped immensely in providing structure and clarity on where to focus my time and efforts.  It is not just about working in the business but working on the business that is so important.

I would definitely recommend this programme to anyone who is wondering what the next step is for their business. It really does simplify some complicated concepts which will hopefully enable and empower the individual to grow their business and make it a success.”

Julia Trollip, J T Biokinetics Ltd

“I joined the Business Growth Programme to get help with reviewing and getting the fundamentals of my business on the right footing. The content of the workshops was useful, with follow up homework and planning in between, which was what I needed.

The follow up support was great; Jerry was on hand to answer questions and clarify workshop content in between these meetings. The Programme enabled me to develop, review and discuss my at-a-glance 1-page business model. I also learnt how to set up a sales forecast and sales matrix which helped me gain focus in a strategic way.

The programme has helped me gain more clarity and focus. More importantly, it has triggered a few decisions of which I have now set these plans into motion. I would certainly recommend it to others.”

Joyce Ong, Marketing Tech
