Bringing together teams of outstanding B2B businesses working collaboratively to help members and their clients build more profitable and sustainable businesses and make a difference in the world.
You are a specialist business advisor, consultant or service provider whose business provides advice and services across any of the key aspects of running a successful SME: E.g. branding, marketing, sales, customer relationships, finance, technology, HR, people and culture, risk management (legal and insurance), systems and operations.
Whether you are simply interested in attending a Synergy48 Group meeting as a one time visitor, or considering joining a group, there are four essential criteria you’ll need to meet:
- Your ideal clients are small and medium business owners. (NOT micro-businesses and not large businesses/corporates)
- You are the principal business owner or a partner in your business
- You have been in business for at least 12 months, you have proven, quality products or services that add real value to SME businesses, and you have a solid base of happy clients.
- You share our strong commitment to our four core values:
- Professional excellence and outstanding customer service
- Collaboration and Team work
- Integrity and truth
- Business for Good
If you meet these four essential criteria it’s most likely our members would love to meet you, and you’d get real value from meeting them, whether or not you are interested in an ongoing membership.
In addition to our four essential attendance criteria above… If you’re wondering whether membership to a Synergy48 Group could be right for you or your business, there are a few other things that we’ve discovered over time will ensure that you are able to both give and receive maximum value from a Synergy48 group membership…
Your business model and business goals
1. Your business provides consultancy or specialist advisory services rather than products or low/no touch services. We’ve found that businesses with products or low/no touch services often benefit from a different strategic partner base over the long term.
2. You have the ability to schedule your own time to be able to attend regular monthly meetings. If you are dependent on one or two large contracts which require you to work on-site at a client’s premises for a significant amount of time each week then you are most likely not a fit for a Synergy48 Group membership.
3. You are in growth phase and you are interested in building a scalable, saleable business not simply owning your own job. If you have no plans to grow your business or expand your business model past your personal capacity to service a limited number of clients then you may not be a fit over the long term.
Things that are important to you personally:
- Being part of a peer to peer mentoring and business advisory group made up of high quality experienced business advisors
- Being part of a supportive community of like-minded business owners who share similar core values
- Being part of a community where every member is committed to making a difference
- Being part of a collective brand recognised for its commitment to professional excellence and outstanding customer service.
- The security of knowing that every member of the S48 community shares the same high standards of professional excellence and customer service as you do.
Things that would add value to your business and your clients:
- The opportunity to grow your business and get new quality clients through referrals and other strategic partnership opportunities.
- The ability to connect your clients with a network of trusted, quality tested specialists and advisors
- The ability to keep your clients informed about key issues across all areas of business through the S48 monthly industry updates
- Your own real-time customer feedback software system to enhance business growth and online reviews
- Access to a Business Benchmarking system to measure all aspects of your business against best practice and develop your own customised business improvement plan.
