“breaks the rules and encourages lateral thinking”
After 10 years of business growth, we needed to re-evaluate our position and set some new challenges. The Edgeware program was exactly what we needed. It breaks the rules of traditional business planning courses and encourages lateral thinking whilst empowering you with the planning tools you need to implement your strategy.
“one of the most exciting educational experiences”
The content and delivery of the varied presentations and workshops was vibrant and fun, not to mention that the charismatic interactions of the participants has been one of the most exciting educational experiences that I have been involved with.
“a journey as unique and individual as you are”
Everyday people with interesting ideas on the way to turning their dreams into reality. Edgeware is a community where purposeful, spirited interactions are fostered within a safe and supportive environment. If you've ever felt the need to just 'go for it' with your business ideas then you've come to the right place. Edgeware will get under your skin. It's a journey as unique and individual as you are.
“excellent use of tools”
Excellent use of tools to cover all areas of small business life and to spark conversation and sharing from attendees.
“it never really felt like work”
I really enjoyed the mix of work, anecdotes, guest speakers and activities. It never really felt like work. One point that really stood out for me was your friendly, caring generosity from start to finish.
“I really needed a process which gave me inspiration”
When I began Edgeware I was confused about my intentions and under pressure from other events in my life which were making decisions necessary but very difficult. I really needed a process which gave me inspiration and encouraged decision making. But I also needed a process which allowed me to progress at my own pace and make decisions my way. If it added a dash of inspiration that would be good too. In Edgeware, I found it all.
“a strategic direction for the next three years”
I've studied business and strategic planning at Master's level, but Edgeware's tools allowed me to simplify my 30 page business plan into one page that gives me a strategic direction for the next three years.
Edgeware has been a godsend. As an entrepreneur, already with a number of business and community interests, the process has refined my focus and enabled me to take a leap of faith in developing a business concept which closely matches my personal goals and ambitions.
“designed to nurture and inspire budding entrepreneurs”
I thoroughly enjoyed and got so much value from the Edgeware program I loved that it is designed to nurture and inspire budding entrepreneurs - instead of approaching business from a theoretical viewpoint, Edgeware provides a practical, hands-on approach to making entrepreneurial visions a reality in a way that is real-world and real-time. What made the program so worthwhile were the interactive style of the seminars (as a group we learned so much from one another), and also the specific systems and processes - by following the step-by-step process I developed a really clear business plan that now paves the way for me to fulfill on my vision.
“really informative and helpful speakers”
I didn't know what to expect. It sounded a bit abstract, a bit out there, a bit creative for me! What I got was to meet a great bunch of people, listen to some really informative and helpful speakers and walk away with some easy, simple tools that I can use on my business and to help build my software product.
