Entrepreneur Club

Navigating the small business world can be tricky and figuring out how to succeed is not always an easy task. That's why the SJP Entrepreneur Club created their SME Diagnostic Tool. This incredible resource lets you anonymously compare your company against similar local and national businesses so that you have all of the facts at your disposal when planning your business success strategy.

You will gain valuable insight into your business, from independent advisors* who will confirm the areas in which you excel and help identify areas of change to help to create significant value.

This tool has been created to identify the elements that make a difference for your business. We’re here to provide you with the best advice and assistance needed for continued growth and success.

*We work with a large network of external growth advisers and SME specialists, including Elephants Child, which have been carefully selected by St. James's Place. The services provided by these specialists are separate and distinct to the services provided by St. James's Place and include advice on how to grow your business and prepare your business for sale.

Receiving timely information and insight into what other business owners have accomplished can often be the spark that propels you in a positive direction or shows you an entrepreneurial opportunity that might have gone unnoticed.

This invaluable insight can act as a catalyst for change and success. With this in mind, SJP developed a communications programme, exclusively for club members, designed to inspire, educate, motivate, and seek growth opportunities.  The programme also helps to challenge the obstacles that may constrain your business potential.

As a determined business owner, your time and energy is invested in taking your enterprise to the next level of success. It can be easy to become so immersed in the everyday operations of running a successful company that you forget how effectively it is performing. That's why we strive to provide you with helpful tools and resources throughout this journey, allowing you to focus on achieving long-term goals while still keeping track of daily progress.

Having a successful business is an incredible accomplishment and showcases your values, goals, and dreams. But have you created the financial security to live the lifestyle that you desire for yourself and your family?

The Entrepreneur Club SME Benchmark Report is a game-changer for entrepreneurs. It not only allows you to view your business from the perspective of an investor or purchaser, but also provides valuable insight into how well your business competes against its peers. But that’s just the beginning - this report goes one step further by helping you achieve financial objectives and lifestyle goals through quantifying business success!

At its core, this process seeks to turn dreams into reality. It conducts a thorough evaluation of your financial position and lifestyle goals in order to devise the most beneficial approach for you.

Utilising the SME Benchmark Report, we comprehensively analyse your assets in detail to ascertain both your business value and growth possibilities. We pay close attention to all of your financial, cash flow and property resources as well as a full assessment of any liabilities or goals you may have.

Through our Entrepreneur Club, we will work with you to refer you to one of the experts in our network of professional advisory firms. This includes specialists who help entrepreneurs to maximise the growth rate and valuation of their enterprise.

Please note that where you are introduced to the services of one of the relevant advisory network support specialists, the services they provide will be separate and distinct from those offered by St. James's Place. They will discuss any associated costs with you fully.

CEO Sessions

This is an opportunity to explore how our specialist advisory services can help you and your business. You can access the skills and experience of your Partner and a specialist SME growth adviser, informally and with no obligation. Whether you’d like to discuss the results of your Benchmark Report, Entrepreneur 360° Report, a specific business issue, prepare for sale or just explore options and opportunities, these sessions are designed to ensure you are fully prepared for whatever the future has in store.

Adviser Support

We collaborate closely with an external specialist SME growth advisory firm to provide a range of advisory services to help you grow your business. Their Business Insight Review is a comprehensive assessment of your business. It identifies strengths, weaknesses, risks, and opportunities, identifying the roadblocks and barriers to achieving your growth potential and crystallising the growth opportunities for your business.

Their Growth Plan identifies the actions you can take to help achieve your growth aspirations, structuring these into a coherent, concise plan. Their vNed works with you to deliver your Growth Plan and act as your sounding board for issues and new ideas. The vNed role is multifaceted, acting as your critical friend, listener, sounding board, counsellor, nonexecutive director and colleague.

If you believe that the Entrepreneur Club can assist you, then we would be delighted to invite you to become a member.

Entrepreneur Club

The St. James’s Place Entrepreneur Club was created to support dynamic entrepreneurs, providing access to expert advice and support that will help maximise the growth and the valuation of your business.

The programme works by providing SME business owners access to an advisory network support system of specialists and external business consultants, who work and advise them in all aspects and stages of their company journey.

This is a support system that any SME business owner can’t afford to miss. The programme offers valuable insights and provides a deep knowledge of the common stresses and needs experienced by SME business owners.

By arming you with the right insight, we work together to address key concerns and challenges, allowing you to overcome any potential constraints that may hold back your business from achieving its full potential.

As a St. James’s Place Partner, we have the pleasure to offer this initiative specifically for the SME market.
