What others are saying about the Residential Business School

I attended the RBS in November 2017 and I am excited to form part of the IIB network. The training was well prepared and touched upon a great variety of issues basically preparing the associates to start acting as an entrepreneur to the benefit of SME businesses (and ourselves). Besides the lessons learned on how to position oneself, which techniques to use, how to prepare (cold) calls , how to use social media etc we received a broad insight into all other benefits of joining IIB eg potential of reaching out to international associates via the website, standard paperwork available and needed (so no reinventing the wheel) . All in all RBS showed to be a great preparation to go out and do business !

"... The RBS session of last year November introduced me to great people whom I otherwise would never have met, it truly enriched my social network. The RBS session also enabled me to clarify my value proposition to future customers by focusing on both my human capital and my social capital. With the international network of business professionals of IIB, my social capital has increased considerably and I am confident that I will be able to contribute and benefit from this network. I strongly recommend any business professional who wants start up a new business advisory practice to invest 3-days in the RBS and join the IIB network... ".
Matthijs Mulder, Netherlands.

In November 2017, 7 new associates joined the IIB in the Netherlands. Chella Rens, the Country Development Director of the Benelux, was an excellent host. Paul Stylianou was the first enthusiastic speaker in this RBS followed by 4 other speakers. The participants got a good insight of starting their own consultancy. The new course lasted only 3 days. All the participants were satisfied about the setup of the course. They found the course very inspiring.

Prior to the RBS, closing the sale was an area where I needed guidance, through the program this has been achieved.
Knowing what I know now, there's no way I could achieve the same results working on my own. The IIB is the way forward for me.
The knowledge from the RBS has made me change my marketing plan for the better.
