The Elite Foundation
Elite Foundation Something new and very special launches on the 30th June aimed at start ups and existing aspirational small recruitment businesses!
Elite Leaders, the UKs foremost peer to peer Learning Development organisation, has today announced the very first Elite Foundation showcase meeting to be held in Central London on the 30th June designed specifically for start up and early-stage growth recruitment companies.
The Elite Foundation will provide to the most ambitious start up and growth recruitment companies and those entrepreneurs with the drive and desire to successfully grow their businesses, leading edge coaching, mentoring and strategic support services delivered by many of the most prominent and well known recruitment gurus and business minds in the UK.
Commenting on the launch of this new addition to the Elite stable of expert services, John OSullivan, Managing Director said, The real attraction of the Elite organization is that it can bring real life expertise and experience to recruitment entrepreneurs through a team which has genuinely had hands-on experience in both starting up and growing hugely successful recruitment businesses - that expertise is invaluable.
Leveraging the Elite team of experts and preferred partners we will be able to advise on systems, finance, marketing, training, branding, and just about any other aspect of either starting up or growing an early stage recruitment company, leaving the principals free to develop and grow their businesses, said OSullivan.
We will also tailor the offering to include the attraction, hiring, training and induction of new talent into these companies, the most critical, yet hazardous part of any new venture.
Paul Jacobs Managing Director of the new Elite Foundation peer to peer learning and development forum stated I am thrilled to be working with John and the other outstanding Elite Directors in launching this exciting new element to the existing highly successful Elite programme.
As we emerge from the challenges of a severe recessionary climate, our discussions with a wide range of recruitment businesses provide clear evidence that the time is absolutely right to take bold and innovative steps to take full advantage of the fantastic growth opportunities that are now apparent in the UK recruitment market.
With the advent of many new ambitious recruitment companies full of determination and purpose, together with existing small recruitment businesses focussed upon swift and decisive expansion we are being inundated with requests to provide guidance, mentoring, consultancy services, training and support.
In response, we have now decided to launch a new style of Elite Leaders with a very distinctive and exciting twist the ELITE FOUNDATION.
OSullivan continued There are record numbers of new recruitment firms coming onto the market, mostly niche specialists, driven by what many see as fertile ground in the immediate aftermath of the recession. Whilst many of these fledgling entrepreneurs are undoubtedly big billers, few will have the experience needed to start up, run and build their own company, and that is where the Foundation aims to help added OSullivan.
Numerous established organizations have benefited greatly from the support given to them by Elite in the last five years, indeed many attribute their success to ideas and initiatives gained through their involvement.
Membership of the Foundation will provide an affordable alternative to some of the current routes to market, most of which involve significant equity sacrifice, expensive consultancy services, or income sharing with an external service provider or silent partner.
Commenting further Jacobs added This select and unique group of dynamic leaders will meet on a quarterly basis in a peer to peer learning and development forum to share highly valuable topical information and new and stimulating strategies designed to provide a competitive edge to rapidly grow brand equity, turnover and outstanding profit.
The Foundation hopes to be instrumental in arranging strategic mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures amongst its members, something which already happens frequently within Elite Leaders.
Those companies that grow successfully can look to graduate to full Elite membership when ready, and to continue their journey to value creation under the stewardship of the organization.
Membership of Elite Foundation will be strictly controlled and the FREE showcase meeting on the 30th June will act as an early entry point to become one of the founding members.
Membership will also include APSCO membership attendance at a further six APSCO meetings per year.
