Zen of Business Academy

What is Zen of Business Training?

The Zen of Business Training is a monthly set of sessions featuring a highly-experienced business coach (Yvonne Fuchs, coaching for 20 years) and a highly-experienced mindfulness teacher (Shamash Alidina, teaching mindfulness for 20 years), plus other industry experts, followed by an opportunity to network with peers.

This programme is aimed at those seeking to start their own businesses, those wanting to develop their existing business or for those in leadership positions.

Our vision for Zen of Business is to build a global community of leaders seeking to do business in a better way.

What's the Aim?

The aim of this programme is to provide you with the skills needed to ensure the best chance of your business succeeding, and a community to offer you support.

Zen of Business offers sound business principles based on years of experience. Zen of Business is also different - it's about inspiring you to bring more awareness, kindness and wisdom to you, your business and the world.

What do I get?

Alongside the 6 x in-person 2.5 hour group sessions, you will be given:

  • Access to online resources to help your business grow
  • Access to a private Facebook group with your peers so you can be part of a serious community of business owners and leaders
  • Access to the recordings of the sessions, so if you can't attend the odd session, you could listen to the audio. We may also have some video recordings of sessions too!
  • You become part of a new wave of business leaders.

Is this training worth the investment?

That's ultimately up to you to decide. We think so for the following reasons:

This training is a tried and tested approach. Yvonne has been running these sessions for thousands of people over the last 20 years and the feedback is always very positive.
Business academies and trainings like this are often priced at thousands of pounds, so this is great value at around just £25 an hour.

You also get the opportunity to form friendships and network, and with the private Facebook group, continue to have support with each other for potentially years to come. The opportunity to network and learn from peers is invaluable. You're not just doing a training - you're joining a community.

If you already have a business, then you’ll know that just one good idea or contact can easily pay many times over for this investment.

As a business leader, you'll be offered tools to enhance your communication, decision-making and a variety of leadership skills.
How are you able to offer all this value at this great price?

The reason we are able to offer this deal is because of our close relationship with the beautiful venue, the Museum of Happiness (you'll love it!). Shamash is one of the co-founders. There is space for up to 50 participants at this pricing, which makes for a great group size.

The programme will be broken down as follows.

  • Session 1: Discover and Developing Strategy
  • Session 2: How to Build Your Confidence and a Brand Called You
  • Session 3: Goal-Setting and Developing The Business Plan
  • Session 4: Getting the Message Out: Social Media, Marketing and Sales.
  • Session 5: Getting to Grips with Finance, Investment and Raising Money.
  • Session 6: Pitch Event and Graduating Party: Always a lot of fun! 

Each session lasts around 2.5 hours with 1.5 hours of training, followed by group activities which builds your networking skills. You will know everyone in the room by the end of the training.

There will be further resources and support available via the Zen of Business website and on Facebook. Sessions run on Wednesday every month at 11.30am – 2pm (a break in August).
