EPS Testimonials


Steve Brown, Driversity Risk Management

 “I thoroughly enjoyed the weekends, such a diverse group, and I am sure we will all benefit from the expert tuition we have received. The organisation and smooth running of the event is a credit to you all. We are extremely grateful for the experience.”

Fiona McIntyre, Greyhope Bay Project

“Fantastic weekend and great start to the programme! Looking forward to the 18th.

Check out this TED talk about starting with why in business - particularly appeals to us emotional buyers but I think it is quite appropriate given our discussions over the weekend. https://www.ted.com/talks/simon_sinek_how_great_leaders_inspire_action?language=en t

TED talks are short, powerful talks given by some of the greatest public speakers and are on every topic from technology to business and global issues. I am slightly addicted but I highly recommend them!  See you all in a few weeks!”

Phil Anderson, Phil Anderson Financial Services

“Thanks to all the sponsors for a wonderful weekend. It was great to meet everyone and I am really looking forward to the next EPS sessions.”

Stewart Aitken, Aberdeen International Youth Festival

“Great to meet everyone and hear about some great ideas and business plans.”

Craig Forsythe, Just Leaving

“Just a quick note to say thank you to all involved in preparing and looking after us over the weekend.  
We covered a great deal in the two days and I learned so much.  Looking forward already to the next one.”

Seb Jones, Speyside Craft Brewery

“More than anything, I learned business from EPS.  Prior to being accepted on the programme I had done the business plans, cash flow forecasts, profit and loss predictions, etc.  I was a start-up business - not the usual intake for EPS - and had anticipated getting help with these elements.

What I actually received from a wide range of experienced and generous businessmen and women was a crash course in business.

It was easily the best investment of my time I have ever made in my business, and the contacts made within EPS continue to contribute to the growth of my company. EPS is the business!”

Philip Taylor, Mormond Engineering

“EPS has given me a great insight into the services required for a growing business.  Reliable information from experienced people and companies.”

Sheryl Newman, Appetite for Business

“The EPS Programme provided a structured approach with different seminars on aspects of business.

This was particularly helpful and the results from these sessions clarified my thinking on what to prioritise and gave me a clear plan on moving forward.

The relationships I made through attending the course have been invaluable as I have moved forward and grown the business.”

Ben Iravani, Monkey Bars Aberdeen Ltd

"The EPS Project was a thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding experience.  Spending time with industry professionals and like-minded entrepreneurs is always going to be beneficial to progress your business forward."
