Unleashing the Entrepreneur

Many entrepreneurs run out of steam after 10 to 15 years. FEO’s solution to this problem is to find and liberate the entrepreneurial talent within your business, with the business owner giving ambitious individuals the time and support to deliver a key project - bringing best practice from outside the business to create solutions and to inject energy and pace into the process. This can revitalise the business's fortune.

This new FEO programme has been successfully pioneered in several local businesses in a Pilot programme and the results have been very encouraging. Projects completed include;

  • Partnering to create new clients and with key suppliers
  • Reducing costs and improving cash flow and profits.
  • Business development/sales
  • Performance management
  • Developing systems and processes
  • Creating a new business

How does Unleashing the Entrepreneur programme work?

A small group of ambitious ‘intrepreneurs’ from non-competing businesses attend four interactive half day sessions to help them improve their business in a range of key growth areas.

Programme facilitators and hosts are FEO peers who have successfully completed the programme and having seen the benefits, agreed to "pay it forward" by inspiring others to succeed.

FEO's belief is that entrepreneurs learn the most from each other and so our peer-to-peer model is most effective.

David Hall, owner of Beverley Park Homes and FEO Director comments

There is no doubt that my candidate Trudy, through the Unleashing the Entrepreneur process has made a huge difference to my companies. To have someone that I trust 100% by my side has been and will always be one of the most important aspects to me. I have gained an awful lot through the FEO over the years and now to see a key member of the team also benefiting is amazing.

FEO was always something that I went off to do on my own, this was fine for my personal development but when it comes to the support required to implement this level of structure in a growing business then Unleashing the Entrepreneur Program could not have come along at a better time. Hope this way of thinking can be expanded on by FEO over the coming years.

Do I qualify?

Yes, provided you

  • Employ a team of at least 8 people in a private sector business
  • Are based in Hull or the East Riding of Yorkshire
  • Have an appetite to grow your business over the next 5 years
  • Can identify and empower an ambitious ‘intrepreneur’ within your business to undertake and complete a specific project
  • Can free up time and give authority for your chosen candidate to attend to all 4 session dates and to undertake their follow up “homework” tasks
  • Can support your chosen candidate at the opening and closing session dates and provide ongoing support when needed

What is the time commitment from my Intrepreneur?

There are 4 sessions which run on a monthly basis from 9.30am until 11.30am. Dates will be set well in advance. There is also project work in between sessions and we recommend at least one day per week to be set aside for this.

How much does it cost?

The programme is free of charge to FEO members but we do ask for commitment to attending all sessions and completing associated homework tasks, in order to get the best results for you and your company
