£2.2 Million seminar at St Mellion Golf & Country Club

Our seminar was a great success, with over 40 requests for extra work and a satisfaction score of 82% from the attendees. There’s still an opportunity to book your consultation, at which you’ll get a huge bundle of helpful tools for a really good price of £250, plus VAT (that’s £200 after tax relief!)

We are planning another for February 2015, so if you feel that you missed out on the seminar this time, you can contact us via the website, to be placed on our waiting list – or alternatively you could contact our offices.

We get a buzz out of ‘Making lives better’!
