“Time is our most valuable asset, yet we tend to waste it, kill it, and spend it rather than invest it”

Jim Rohn

As a business owner, you will know what pressures there are constantly on your time.  And while it’s sometimes nice to feel important, and at the centre of everything in your business, how often does this flip over into overwhelm – where there feels that there is simply not enough time to do everything you know you have to do?

This Momentum Series workshop gives you a snapshot of the main tools that you can choose to deploy to master your time better – so that you can get the really important things done to keep your business growing and developing.

Level Up Momentum Programme workshops combine an educational seminar of around one hour with networking and group discussions aimed at owners and senior managers of businesses employing 3 – 20 staff.  Our focus is on delivering supportive learning in a supportive environment for busy Business Owners who want to grow, to give them a perspective on their business and a chance to work ON their business, not just in it.

This Momentum Series workshop will be led by Graeme Crosbie, MD & Owner of Level Up.

At least 30% of all Momentum Series event fees are donated to The Somerset Fund.



Bookings are closed for this event.


I was introduced to Level Up through a local business networking group about 18 months ago.  Transitioning from an HR career to Executive Search in 1997, I set up my own partnership over five years ago.  Although loving what I do, I couldn’t help feeling that we needed a bit of a refresh and have more focus on why our offering was different in a very crowded marketplace.

As an HR professional by background, I have met many business coaches; some better than others.  Although admittedly a little sceptical, I met Graeme Crosbie for coffee and soon felt that he ‘got me’ and understood why I was at a crossroads. We talked about how we might work together and what his kick start programme could offer. 

Having spent my whole career In the corporate world, I found I missed having a variety of people to brainstorm with.  Graeme has proved to be a strong business mentor.  The fact he also had a corporate background and had not worked with any other search firms proved to be a real asset.  He challenged my thinking and assumptions; we went back to basics and talked extensively about business and personal goals and how these could be achieved within realistic timelines.  

The kickstart programme was extremely useful.  For the first time in years, I found I actually dedicated quality time to thinking about what it was I wanted Theron to be.  We focused on what actually made us different; I stopped apologising for being a “small boutique” but learnt to embrace the good things about offering a bespoke, personal service to a few quality clients.  Of course I already knew the theory, but having to articulate USP’s and strategy to someone else makes it more ‘real’ and something you do as opposed to just having good intentions and never getting round to it because work takes over.  

Apart from growing revenue, we have had many successes including the redesign and relaunch of the website with genuine USP’s; extending our client base; recruiting a new Partner and maintaining focus and momentum.  

We are now on an Ontrack programme; meetings are less frequent, but they prove a useful medium for staying focused and doing the things I committed to do.  Some things continue to stay at the bottom of the pile, but I’m not sure that will ever change.  

Some of my network did not understand why I needed to see a business coach, especially with my background.  I have found it incredibly refreshing, not least because Graeme has helped me to look at things differently and has help me to add real value to my business.  I would absolutely have no hesitation in recommend him to other business professionals but only on the basis you want to take a cold hard look at yourself and realise that growth and change will only happen if you want it to.  Graeme can help, challenge and give an alternative perspective, but it’s down to you to do it.
