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.

“Party Plus engaged John Denton to present and facilitate an all-day workshop for franchisees (business owners) on 25 July 2010.
The day included presentations and activities on the business sale process, with an emphasis upon achieving maximum sale price and minimum timeframe through a process of conscious business planning and improvement.
John received a consistently high rating and positive comments from the franchisees.
As the event organiser, I appreciated John’s willingness to determine our brief for the day, to relate his presentation to prior learning events we had conducted, and to deliver as per our expectation. I found John reliable to work with, he delivered what was agreed in full, exercised good time management , and was flexible on the day to spend more or less time in areas the attendees wanted.
Party Plus franchisees operate a 6 day business, so to ask them to devote a Sunday off to a workshop and pay for it takes a leap of faith. John delivered and the franchisees stated they gained real value from their investment.
