As The ‘M&E Gold Rush’ comes to an end, are you prepared for what comes next?
I’m not a fan of scaremongering.
But I’m also not one for burying my head in the sand and ignoring the stuff in front of me.
Through my work coaching and advising over 50 M&E business owners and operators right now, I’ve got a fairly unique insight as to what’s going happening in the industry across the board.
And the chatter going on in my private coaching groups?
“Things are slowly getting quieter.”
Maybe you've noticed the same, or you might still be riding the wave.
I’m not going to sit here and tell you that business is going to drop off a cliff by next Tuesday.
I don’t think that’s the case.
But you find me a M&E biz owner who’s not seen demand surge over the past couple of years, who won’t agree that enquiries have slowed down slightly.
We’ve been experiencing a ‘gold rush’ of sorts, and my prediction? It’s coming to an end.
The question is:
“Are you prepared?”
Truth is, it’s easy to win jobs when there’s huge demand, like there has been.
But unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you’ll know what’s happening in the UK.
Inflation is at its highest rate in over 40 years.
Experts are predicting a ‘high risk’ of recession within the next 12 months.
Consumers are being hit by rapidly increasing bills and cost of living expenses.
Listen, this isn’t some ‘end of times’ type prediction. But we’ve seen what happens in times of recession.
I mean, I’ve run a business through a recession - maybe you have too.
The best businesses make it through unscathed. The average businesses might survive, assuming it doesn’t last too long. The weakest businesses fail, and fail fast.
The good news? It’s not too late to prepare.
You’ve heard the saying - “make hay while the sun shines.”
Don’t fall into the trap of worrying about what might happen after it starts happening.
The best time to plan for recession, inflation, and rising costs is when your business is THRIVING.
Because before long, your business will need to be more efficient and better organised than it is now.
Your team and how well they work will have a huge impact on your profitability.
Marketing will become more important as you need to attract more enquiries again.
And there’s only so many hours in the day to get stuff done - so you need to work smarter.
That’s why, on Thursday 7th July, I’m hosting a live, in-person Discovery Day in Milton Keynes, where I’m going to share the 7-Sector Framework my clients have used to build resilient, profitable, and recession-proof businesses.
And I’d love for you to join us there.
There’s no cost to book your seat, but places are limited, so you need to register today to avoid disappointment.
After so long of missing ‘in-person’ events, why not take up this valuable networking opportunity to strengthen your network.
I can’t wait to see you there.

Who says business can’t be enjoyable? The Bright Discovery Day is about more than just what you’re going to learn, it’s about the networking opportunities and connections you’re going to make in the room.
That’s why I’m going to be taking a group of my coaching clients go karting at the renowned ‘Daytona Outdoor’ track after the teaching part of the day is done.
(These are ‘proper’ outdoor go karts, capable of going over 50mph, so it’s going to be a real white knuckle drive!)
And I’d love for YOU to join us there.
I’m going to be paying for 10 delegates to join me and my clients at the track. Saving you £130!
All you have to do for you chance to join us there (saving you £130) is complete the short form once you’ve booked your free place on the Discovery Day.
