What's Involved?

Mentoring

Everybody needs help to make it- nobody is equipped with all of the skills needed to reach the level of business success they desire. The Kickstart Program is your regular access to our team of business mentors. Fortnightly Q&A sessions with mentors boasting a range of backgrounds and experience = invaluable to business owners!

Training

Our modules are designed to cover all the topics essential to business growth - from marketing and sales to financial records, CRM and exit planning. These interactive short courses include group discussion and Q&A sessions- they're so much more than just an online video. And the best part? You only pay for the modules you need. Regular Masterclasses featuring guest presenters will take a deep dive into more advanced business topics and will be available to our Fast-Track members.

Community

A community is only as good as the members who join it, and the Kickstart Program is filled with likeminded small businesses owners who are committed to taking their business to the next level. When you are surrounded by people who are passionate, talented, and driven to succeed, maintaining your own passion and drive will come naturally.

Access to Industry Experts

We give you access to the very best in their field through our Modules and Masterclasses. As small business owners we know you can't afford to work with every expert- the Kickstart Program will allow you to learn from guest presenters on topics that are most relevant to you and your business.

"Iain's practical approach to delivering his material makes the workshop very enjoyable. He's walked the road of business management before, so his advice comes from the heart, and is totally backed up by logic."

Anne Groves, business owner.

Iain Upland Consultant

Upland Consulting Founder

A word from Iain

“The Kickstart Program was devised after we recognised a gap in help being offered to small business owners- those beyond early start up but facing the issues of growing, rather than starting, a business.

As with everything we do at Upland Consulting, we built this program following our motto of ‘Head, Heart and Bottom Line’. We know there are many online courses available on the big wide web, but it was imperative to us that this program offer a level of human connectedness that not only grew the skills of it’s participants, but nurtured their values, sense of purpose and sense of community.

Why the application process? Because to get the most out of this program you need to need to be ready for some changes. We assess this by asking whether you hold the Four Aces:
AMBITION- you have to want to build your business
ACTION- if you only do what you always did, you’ll always get what you’ve always got. Are you ready to act on what we discuss?
ADVICE- are you up for taking feedback, advice and guidance?
AUTHORITY- are you the owner, or part of the ownership group, of your business?

We look forward to welcoming you to our community of successful entrepreneurs.

The Kickstart Program

This program is NOT for you if...

  • You are comfortable where you are
  • You are not going to be able to take advice
  • You “don’t have time” to work ON your business
  • You’re not prepared to change your perception or actions

We want to ensure we are growing a community of like minded small business owners who are dedicated to making real change in their business.

We don’t offer payment plans but that’s because there’s no commitment. With our monthly subscription you can cancel whenever you need.

New modules are available every month. Our training modules are structured so that they are interactive, presented by our experts live with the opportunity for our community members to ask questions.

We believe the true magic of this program lies in the community.  It’s what differentiates it from many other online courses that are available- the peer learning that occurs in our interactive modules and masterclasses.  Whilst you will be able to watch these back if you are not able to make it to the live, the true beauty will be in bouncing off ideas with other, like-minded business owners. 

We vet every applicant into the program to ensure that the community you are joining is filled with like minded business owners at the same stage of their business journey. Our community is a safe space, moderated by our Upland Consulting team, with regular contributions from our team of experts.
