About Academy 88 & Academy 08

Academy 88 & Academy 08 members with Chairman Glenn Watkins 

Academy 88 is a select group for Chief Executives, Managing Directors and Managing Partners and Academy 08 is for Directors and Entrepreneurs.

Members of these two trusted groups are progressive leaders (owner managed, employed or family business) who want to grow themselves to significantly grow their business, while benefiting from a balanced and fulfilled approach to all aspects of their lives.

Why join?

►How do I take my business to the next level?

►What am I missing out on?

►I don’t feel fulfilled

►My business is not hitting targets, goals and objectives

►How do I get my team to step up to the next level?

Membership provides Fast Track Learning for Successful Business Leaders.

Academy group 88 and Academy 08 consist of around a dozen or so non-competing but like-minded and locally based leaders in London, Watford and Harrow of growing business who meet monthly to work together on their business effectiveness and personal direction. This is achieved through:-

image_2-300x225o   Interaction with leading expert speakers who present and facilitate workshops on a range of topics of great interest and relevance to today’s leaders

o   Peer group sessions where members receive totally impartial (and entirely confidential) advice and support for their opportunities and issues from other leaders in a structured discussion

o   Annual business and personal goal setting, shared with members who challenge and support throughout the year

o   Highly supportive, challenging and flexible individual one to one coaching & mentoring

Combining these elements creates a powerful yet practical learning environment.  Members often say that the objectivity and honesty they receive is very hard to find elsewhere. This has been one of the keys to our success, a process our members refer to as “the board you’d love to afford”.
