We felt the first part was inspiring in terms of how to manage your time and your business. It was good to network as well; the people there were friendly and knowledgeable. The idea of it was for us to get more of an insight on things that would help to manage the business and the employees. The Director is such a busy person that it sometimes falls onto the back burner, and I think we wanted to see how to make that a priority and how to manage your time. We were really impressed by Sean and what he does, and we've planned to work with him going forward, with what he can offer us in terms of accounting knowledge. We gained a knowledge of how to priorities certain things and how to work, and how to prioritise the people in the company and work together so as not to get over stressed. There was a lot of audience participation; people really did get involved.

It wasn't a normal formatted networking meeting where people just pass cards like confetti backwards and forwards and ask to be referred to this company or that company. It was much more of a supported, strategic type, mastermind group. I also liked how passionate the members were about the group, and the pastries were lovely. I was hoping to get a meeting with Sean from Burgis & Bullock. The seven yes questions were what I took away, although I can't recall what they titled that section. It was a great event and I'd give it 10/10. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I liked the power of the Virtual Finance Director; I think it's very helpful to businesses to be able to identify first where they can improve their business as it stands at the moment, and it gives them something to work from in terms of projecting forward. I was invited by Sean Farnell who I've worked with previously, and also by Steve Darnell. We operate in the funding market so Steve had asked me to go along with a view to becoming a funding partner. I think the networking side of things looks very, very positive.

What stood out about the event for me was the profile of the businesses that were in the room. These were small business but they were not micro businesses; they were substantial contributors to their regional economy. I was looking to see how other people would respond to the proposition and see if there was a collective agreement that this was a good concept. The answer was yes from the feedback I saw on the day, the involvement and engagement by participants was strong and I think it was received well by those that attended. I think it's suitable for businesses that are perhaps owner operated businesses that are large, and either want to grow further or improve their profitability through better practice.

I liked the frankness of the delivery; it was quite straightforward and easy to understand. I liked the way Steve Darnell delivered his element of it, and Sean Farnell too. The two of them work together well as they complemented each other in what they were doing and how they dealt it. I'd had a conversation with Sean when we were looking at my books and I'd said I need some business advice on developing the business as a whole; growth etc. Sean mentioned that he'd been looking at not only the numbers from the accounts point of view, but that he was moving into business management and mentioned the seminar. I can see that there's a business coaching element to it and I can see the benefits of that, and the fact that you are using other people to bounce your ideas off; using them as non-executives if you like.

The event was extremely well organised, very professional, and the objectives were very clear. The presentations were excellent, and there was great interaction with those present. I wanted to understand more about how accountants are facing the challenge of making tax digital, and using Virtual Finance Director to develop their business advisory services. I took away a much better understanding of how Virtual Finance Director will help accountants to provide forward looking guidance and strategies to help their clients grow. David Mack's session on asking the right questions was very useful. This was also a great opportunity to get to network with like minded business owners, all seeking to grow their businesses.

I liked the volume of people to network with. I attended with a view to becoming a member of, and supplier to, the mastermind group. I took away a lot of business opportunities in fairness, and contacts, people I hadn't met before, and I've become a member of the group.

For me it was the first time at one of these events, and my introduction to the Business Mastermind Group. I think what stood out was the willingness of everyone to help each other, the openness and the keenness to share. We're part of the Mastermind Group but I'm relatively new to the organisation so from my perspective I wanted to find out what it was about, and if there was any value to being a part of it. I'm pleased to say yes, I do believe there is significant value for us. I came away with great introductions, and some of the presentations were quite thought provoking in terms of 'how do we incorporate that into our business?'.

I was motivated to go because it was Burgis & Bullock who were putting the event on and I saw Business Mastermind so I thought it would be an opportunity to brainstorm and pick up some good information for my business. I was straight on to my PA to pull out all our insurance policies and risk assessments so we could review them all to ensure we are properly up to date and covered. I learnt a lot.
