So, take this opportunity to take yourself - your colleagues and your business to the next level.

Mark Hobbs from New Leaf Distribution Ltd appears in Leaders Council podcast.

The Leaders Council of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is currently in the process of talking to leadership figures from across the nation in an attempt to understand this universal trait and what it means in Britain and Northern Ireland today.

Mark Hobbs from New Leaf Distribution Ltd was invited onto an episode of the podcast. Host Scott Challinor asked a series of questions about leadership and the role it has played in their career to date.

Scott Challinor commented, 'Hosting a show like this, where you speak to genuine leaders who have been there and done it, either on a national stage or within a crucial industry sector, is an absolute honour.'

Lord Blunkett, chairman of The Leaders Council of Great Britain and Northern Ireland said, 'I think the most informative element of each episode is the first part, where Scott Challinor is able to sit down with someone who really gets how their industry works and knows how to make their organisation tick. Someone who's there day in day out working hard and inspiring others. That's what leadership is all about.'

Blueprint Event Testimonials

I hope this message finds you well. I wanted to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude for the opportunity to attend the "Blueprint for Business" event that you organized. It was, without a doubt, one of the most informative and educational experiences I've had in the realm of business planning.

The event was not only well-presented but also exceptionally well-delivered. Your passion and expertise shone through, making the sessions engaging and insightful. Both myself and my colleagues, Steve Ralph and Justyne Kowalczyk, left the event with a newfound energy, excitement, and enthusiasm for what lies ahead in 2024.

The clarity with which you outlined the steps needed for success was invaluable. Understanding how to build an effective team, structure meaningful meetings, and set goals with corresponding rewards and milestones has provided us with a roadmap for success. Your insights have undoubtedly equipped us with the tools needed to navigate the challenges of the business landscape with confidence.

What set this event apart was not only the wealth of knowledge shared but also the interactive and dynamic nature of the presentations. The engagement fostered a positive learning environment, and we appreciated the opportunity to participate actively in the discussions.

Justyna and I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the Blueprint for Business event. The takeaways from the sessions will undoubtedly shape our approach and strategies moving forward. Your dedication to fostering growth and success within the newleaf business community is commendable, and we are grateful to have been a part of such a transformative experience.

Thank you once again for extending the invitation. We look forward to applying the insights gained from the event and are excited about the positive impact it will have on our business endeavours.

Steve Ralph

The course is great to provide some clarity and direction on where you and your business actually wants to go and importantly the steps you can take to get you there! It's no nonsense, direct and to the point on the aspects of business and what it is you need to put in place (if you wish to take action) to become a successful and bigger company.

The likeminded individuals, all there looking to advance and grow their business is a breath of fresh air and you leave the course with ideas and sparks all over the place, with an actionable plan to move forward.

Highly recommended and I would certainly attend again.

John Aikman

The Blueprint course was amazing with absolutely masses of useful information packed into a short time frame. This insightful information is like gold dust as it comes from Mark's own 40 years of success in sales and how to build a great business. I now have a very clear business plan for the years ahead with a great sense of purpose and a focus on why we do what we do and have no doubt of the success that will follow.

Thank you sincerely Mark for this excellent transfer of knowledge, I am very grateful indeed

Stefan Cork

I just wanted to thank you, again, for your input and hospitality over the last couple of days and, of course, the book - very interesting, very thought provoking, very enjoyable and very much appreciated.

It was also, good to have the opportunity to network with other AR's and to that end, it looks like Stefan and I may be able to do something

Greville Phillips

The course was really everything that I needed at exactly the right time in our journey

I came into the course a bit apprehensive - not really knowing if we should be there - as we don't even feel like real business owners - we are effectively winging it

We are nearly three years into running our business - and things are going well - but some of the issues we have were highlighted by the contents of the course with Mark - we have just left our storming phase! And we don't currently have a detailed plan of where we want to be - what our end game is and why we are even doing this!

What the blueprint has specifically done is shift the way we think. To think bigger - effectively taking ourselves out of the day to day business and focus on running and building a successful business. It's made it very clear that this isn't even that hard to achieve - but we do need to set gateway targets in order to progress and grow the business to become a £1mil per year business in the next 5 years

The best thing about the course is we have instantly come away with changes to the business which we have implemented already, we have a clear defined plan for the remainder of 2023 - and we are already forming a plan for 2024, 2025, 2026 and on and on and on

What really helped me personally with this course is remaining positive, focussing on emotional control, focussing on hard work and being disciplined!

Thank you so much Mark for sharing your years of experience and helping us form a business which is going to change customers and colleagues lives for many years to come

Mark John

The two day Business Blueprint course with Mark Hobbs was exactly what I needed at the exact time I needed it.

As a new advisor in the industry I had been so preoccupied with learning the trade that I hadn't given any time to thinking any further into the future than a few months.

Marks session instantly made me think bigger, define what I wanted and the actual reason why!

Not only setting emotionally connected goals but bench marks to hit along the way. I've already created a logical plan and had a meeting with Joel to start actioning step one of my plan.

The course wasn't just business planning but personal development too which, is right up my street. It helped me highlight my current thinking has been too small and I haven't been managing my state recently in stoic and productive way.

Marks experience and business prowess was very apparent and it was very inspiring and motivating listening to his wins and failures throughout his career and I'm very grateful to have been selected for this course which will be shown by the results I'm going to create over the next 5 years.

Taking time out to focus on myself, my business and be in a room of other successful people all wanting to grow and improve was something that was long overdue.

Thank you for your time and hospitality Mark and New Leaf.

Alec Witts

The Blueprint event is a MUST for any business owner looking to level up, it was a real eye opener for us. The mindset, focus and drive after attending this event is awesome and the tools and strategy discussed is pretty amazing.

Business's need to think BIGGER and this course certainly put things into perspective.

Well done Mark Hobbs, what a great course and can't wait to come back to see how much we have implemented and grown as a business.

Nathan Reeves

Having attended the Blueprint programme earlier this year I can confirm that is has improved me and my business. To have time and guidance and discuss practical issues with other advisers was a real eye opener. I found it thought provoking and exhilarating and would definitely recommend everyone to go on the Blueprint programme.

Deep Dosanjh

I would like to thank Mark Hobbs for the most interesting and inspiring course! I didn't only enjoy it but have learnt so much. The content was relevant and well presented. Everything was explained in detail and thank you for sharing your experiences. The enthusiasm Mark brought to the course engendered a positive atmosphere. Great interactive course. I would highly recommend it.

Harmanjit Nahal

Its given me clarity on how to move forward with my business. I can see the benefit of having the opportunity attend the event with other advisors who are at different levels/ stages of their business to mine giving me opportunity to learn from their experiences. Having Joel White give his presentation I was able to ask questions that are specific to my business area this really helped me get a clear strategy. Mark delivered the even really well - I'm actually now considering changing my company branding (only one-week earlier to the course this was something I didn't want to do - but can now see the benefits). I feel I have a new found level of energy to move my business forward.

Ranjoth Johal

I really enjoyed the two days with Mark on the Blueprint course.

It has motivated me to move forward with the business and lay some foundations for 2022.

I knew I needed to change my mindset and be more positive and this really has kicked me into doing that and wanting to do that. Also, knowing that we are meeting monthly and going to have the Whatsapp group means that we are going to be reminded of our goals and actions, so there won't be any slacking.

It's great that we have a network that continues to want to help their advisers and for Mark to take 2 days out of his schedule to spend with us really means a lot and that is motivation in itself. I now have ideas springing to mind for marketing, whereas before this week, I had a great big block on any kind of thinking.

The pace of the 2 days was good and hearing from Joel and where he has come from to where he is now is very inspiring.

I'm looking forward to 2022 and our next face to face meeting next December.

Hayley Noye

Attending the course with Mark and my cohort has been one of the most challenging and exciting experiences of my working life!

Mark is such a storyteller who uses his personal anecdotes to bring the blueprint to life- so much so it's hard not to get swept away with enthusiasm.

But Blueprint is more than just stories though, it's highly practical concrete advice wrapped up with inspirational wisdom.

There were so many important takeaways for me to work on personally but the one that resonated the most was as an AR without employees, or partners, I'm self-employed rather than a business owner - a distinction that I feel more than ever at present!

Mark has laid out a route to manage this transition to being a business owner for any of us willing to try.

I wouldn't say that attending has made the road ahead easier - far from it! It's made me examine my motivations, question my actions and challenge my beliefs; But it's also given me a map and a compass to navigate the next part of this journey which will take me from being self-employed to running a real business.

Time spent away from my desk, being at the smart new London office, with likeminded advisors was uplifting and revitalising and I can absolutely recommend it. Supercharge your business, supercharge yourself and do the blueprint!

Thank you Mark and all our New Leaf Family.

Nic Jones

I cannot praise the Blueprint day high enough. Regardless of whether your business is just starting up, or gradually moving forward, or a little stagnant like mine, you will get something from this event. Mark is truly inspirational and incredibly knowledgeable on how to make a business work. This two day event will keep you finding little nuggets of information that will change your life forever, both work and personal. It is important that you leave with a positive mindset, and understanding that anything is achievable if you put your mind to it, and a commitment to take on board all that you have learned. Thank you Mark for your time, dedication, humour, generosity and kindness, here's looking forward to the future!

Barbara Stockley

Thank you for the amazing opportunity. This Blueprint has really benefited me and made me reflect on what I had been doing incorrectly and how I self sabotaged because of fear of success for many years. Now I have that clear ideal and goal to make that change. On reflection I never believed that I could be successful, but after your positive vibes and hearing the amazing success stories I know have that belief and am now super excited to succeed finally!
Thank you for all your support!

Who could ask for a better Network for Advisers?!

Vanessa Deenmahamad

I recently attended the Blueprint training course. The course itself was intimate, with just myself and 3 other New leaf members. The training was very concentrated. The other members where in a similar position to myself, as we all shared a desire to move our businesses forward. The course is built to make you look at yourself both now and in the future. It tests boundaries and strips everything back.

As I was with likeminded members the group formed a bond quickly and although we challenged each other's opinions, this was done in a respectful way. The guest speakers were informative, knowledgeable and shared best practices in growing a business. Overall I felt the two days was very thought provoking and well worth the time and energy you invest.

Samantha Challis

I cannot recommend doing the blueprint course enough. It's too easy to get lost in the day to day noise of our business. Taking 2 days to really step out and reflect on the business and myself was more important than I realised. Mark shared his wealth of knowledge and experience as a business owner as well as a financial services professional and brought us through a clarifying journey to set some clear aims and goals. I was reminded of why I started this and what I want and cleared up a lot of thought processes and plans that had got lost in translation. The group size was perfect as we could all comfortably speak up, share ideas and support each other. I suggest everyone does this - we all need it!

Sarah Drakard

I honestly can not recommend the new and improved 2 day Blueprint course enough. It's a great 2 days and I left feeling empowered to kick my business on. Mark will give you the tools and more importantly his time in making sure that you succeed in getting your business to where you want it and to achieve all your goals. Sign up, turn up and forget what you think you know, truly buy in to it to get the absolute best from this. I'm excited to see my businesses and my personal progression in the next 12 months. Top 10 beware, you are all officially on notice!!!

Nicholas Champion

The transition from employed to starting my own business was something I was excited and also a little scared about. The reason I wanted to come to the blue print event was because I wanted take away more motivation, self reflection and understanding how to think like a business owner and not a advisor. The two day event gave me clarity and allowed me to set goals I can truly achieve, Mark you have a gift to make a person feel like they can achieve anything and I really appreciate that a lot. I have taken all the learning and truly self reflected and asked myself am I doing what I need to be successful?

The event I would say is wonderful for everyone it allows you to break away from your training wheels or push through the plateau stage. We all decided to stand out become we weren't born to be invisible, lets continue we all deserve to be successful. I urge everyone to try it even if nothing you can take away some positivity, banter and free coffee.

Thank you for a lovely few days.

Zunaira Sajid

Just finished the two day Blueprint event. What an inspiring and motivational time. Mark, as always gave his all, not only on the business sides of our lives, but on areas that we can take into our personal and family environments that can really help to achieve success and happiness.

The guest speakers were all fantastic, their journeys in the industry and their positive association with New Leaf gave me tremendous inspiration. My fellow attendees were great fun to be with and the time just flew by.

We were given some insightful gifts, but more importantly, we were given time from Mark that is priceless.

The event was brilliant.

Thank you

Rakesh Sharma

The Blueprint process offers insight into various development strategies both in business and in life. It's certainly not a one size fits all approach, more of a toolkit to use to mold you and your business to however you see fit. The balance of serious business discussions with honest personal feedback and reflection is refreshing and you will not find this anywhere else. I would encourage anyone that can devote the time and energy to thinking about what you wish to achieve to attend this without hesitation.

Jai Street

If you wonder how & why successful people are successful......
If you aren't happy with how much you are earning......
If you are worn out or feeling low......
If you don't have any goals......then you need to attend the Blueprint event!

If you feel you are a successful, positive person, and are 100% happy with what you are earning.....then you probably have already attended the Blueprint event.

Adam Harvey

I'm not sure why would anyone need to be encouraged to get direct inside from a multi millionaire who is a walking example that this works into how to build a successful business and grow him/ herself in the process...

Thank you Mark for your time and effort in creating this amazing event. It is always inspiring being around you. I was part of Blueprint days in the past and I was always taking away a lot but I was especially drawn to this one as there is accountability involved in it too. It is easy to listen to your wise words and examples of your and other people successes but then it is even easier to fall back into our normal way of living.

This Blueprint is different. I'm so glad that I was able to be part of first one of many and I'm looking forward to see our success!

Have a great weekend everyone and thank you once again Mark for everything.

Linda Dominiak

Just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU for sharing your knowledge, experience and insights into how to build a highly successful financial services business.

The combination of both business development and personal development was very powerful and inspiring!

Looking forward to attending the follow-up sessions to help us implement all we learned and make it happen!!

John Castle

Thank you so much for a fantastic 2 days of training and brain storming. There are so many different things I have taken away from the blueprint days and it was such a nice gesture to have 4 books to take away and read. I encourage anyone to attend the blueprint days no matter where you are in your business journey. Thanks so much for your help and guidance Mark and I look forward to working with you and the rest of the team.
