"The more you learn, the more you earn"

The Really Good Business Club was started to help the local business community learn the things they needed to learn in order to grow a sustainable and profitable business. We want you to thrive in business but in order for that to happen the chances are you'll need to learn some stuff. Certified Business Coach Alan Smith and Chartered Accountant Val Wishart started this club for the benefit of the community in which they work on the basis of THE MORE, THE MORE ....."the more we can help people to grow, the more money they make, the more people they employ....and that can only be a good thing for our economy"

Why you should

Attend this event

Chartered Accountant Valerie Wishart of Beyond The Numbers Accountancy Firm and I launched the Really Good Business Club at the Institute of Directors in Edinburgh City Centre in April 2018.

Why did we start it? Simple really.

We wanted to lay on educational events where business owners can:

1) learn about a variety of topics delivered by people with strong credibility in their field.

2) network with other people who have a business, enjoy business and want to get even better at business.

3) to have a bit of fun.
