A lucrative opportunity to apply your leadership skills to help small business owners achieve profitable growth.
‘Peer-to-Peer’ groups are highly effective at helping ambitious SME’s to scale and transform. BizSmart’s® expertise in facilitating local ‘Peer-to-Peer’ groups presents its franchisees with the opportunity of running a dynamic consultancy business with six figure earning potential.
It’s a fact that only 1% of businesses in this country scale beyond 49 employees, and only 4% get beyond 9. BizSmart® has developed a thorough understanding of the reasons for this trend and devised solutions to move the needles on those dials and to create more ScaleUps.
Biz Smarts® mission aims to radically improve the advice and support available to the owners of small businesses designed to help them scale and improve performance. We do this through a suite of innovative Peer-to-Peer and 1-2-1 support ScaleUp programmes. Collectively, these are our Flight Academy®. This has been designed to help inspire owners to achieve business success by sharing experiences, ideas and feedback with other owners. The focus is on enabling them to gain more freedom and control; to spread their wings and soar gracefully!
The BizSmart® programme
Flight Academy® gives business owners ‘wings’ through a rock-solid, proven system for scaling and building value. It comprises a suite of membership products that are available to business owners and their teams. The core products are our Smart90® Clubs, offering quarterly workshops and networking events, and SmartBoards®, which comprise panels of 6 business owners that meet regularly as a group and for 1:1 sessions. Supported by a suite of business improvement tools such as videos, webinars and tutorials, these events provide unique forums that stimulate the creative and practical solutions that are key to scaling a business.
The BizSmart® franchise
The role of a BizSmart® franchisee is to facilitate, advise and mentor. It’s about using your proven business skills to guide local small business owners towards achieving their business expansion goals, using our highly effective ScaleUp programmes.

Running a small business presents numerous challenges and so the value to an owner of regularly meeting with a small group of other business owners in a collaborative forum offers huge benefits. Our franchisees sit at the heart of this, becoming a tried and trusted mentors.

Significantly, the market potential for BizSmarts®’ services is considerable. Our target market of companies of 2 to 50 employees comprises over 1.3 million businesses. The recent Covid pandemic has particularly highlighted the value of peer-to-peer support and together with increases in Government backed funding to aid small businesses demand for our expertise is extremely buoyant.
The benefits of being a BizSmart® franchisee
Working with like-minded business owners to achieve success provides a genuine glow of personal satisfaction. There are huge personal rewards for being the catalyst that enables clients to effectively scale and fulfil their business ambitions.
