From Gary Maynard – Owner – Medichill
When it comes time to make big decisions, to bounce ideas off people or have a focus group on a new product, that’s when it can feel very lonely for a lot of small business people. That is where I have found John Denton’s mentoring/business owners board (Bob) to be invaluable assistance. You are grouped with a wide variety of like-minded people who want to improve their business, willing to share their time and experience to potentially help you. The advice also comes un-biased with no strings attached, and sometimes it hurts! The fact that I have been a member for over 8 years and my business has improved each year is testament to the value of the group and the professionalism of John as a facilitator. I recommend the group unreservedly.
From Nolan Penning – Former Owner – Magnum Flavours & Ingredients
A few years before I wanted to sell my business, I attended John’s “Prepare Your Business Ready For Sale” course and this was extremely beneficial. I discovered that selling a business was a lot more complicated than I expected. After the course i joined the BOB group and John worked with me as my bob coach to prepare my company for sale over an 18 month period.
When the time came to list I was fully prepared and achieved a very satisfying result. I cannot thank John and the BOB group enough for the support and guidance. My advice to business owners, call John and join BOB today.

As part of the regular Mentor group sessions we each got our turn in the spotlight to review our business with the group. When I presented my business situation and asked for advice the consensus that came from John and the group was to stop manufacturing and concentrate on importing only.

Just wanted to let you know that we have now re-branded and thank god we listened to you as things have been improving ever since !
We are now doing custom branded candles for companies and small business’ which has proven to be very successful , we are working away at getting new customers and working on maintaining the relationship so repeat orders are placed. Thanks again John for your help and the mentoring group experience.”
From Lillian Wolfinger of Lillian’s Counselling
I would like to comment on the Mentor Group that I attended, run by John Denton. I found the meetings to be informative and stimulating and I always came away with something to think about in relation to my business. It was good to be amongst a group of people who were ready to share their experiences and successes.
John presented in a manner that was non-judgemental, challenging, supportive and encouraging (and a bit of humour thrown in)
I am looking forward to the next group, so that I can continue to work on the growth of my business.
Kind regards, Lillian Wolfinger

I would like to thank You and the Team ( and I don’t use the word ‘team’ lightly), at your Advanced Mentoring Group (AMG) which I have participated in for over two years. The amount that I have learned from our meetings is huge, being the sponge that I am, I have put many things into practice from implementing full Systems and Procedures to knowing the numbers and what they mean to marketing and sales and my business which has progressed in leaps and bounds trippling in turnover over that period and now heading to a solid 2.5 million in turnover, cutting many costs and increasing Net profit.
Without the help from yourself and the Advanced Mentoring group and those wonderful, knowledgeable, people involved I would never have built a Triple award winning successful business and would never have started another one at the same time.
Thanks again, Leon
