As with all plans at the moment, ours is best served with a pinch of salt, but we’ve signed the contracts and we’re hopeful that this is a roadmap we’re going to be able to stick to…
March – 25th – Zoom presentation
We’re still basking in the warm glow of the feedback from last month’s Zoom, so we’ve planned another one for later this month. Topic to be confirmed in a week or so, we’ll stick to the same midday time slot that we used last month.
April – Barn Roundtables
We replaced all of the furniture in our office during lockdown, precisely so we could run some smaller roundtable meetings here, and so far, mysterious forces have worked against us and we’ve only run a single meeting here.
We’re hoping to put that right in April, with a series of 5 roundtable meetings, each one for a maximum of 7 clients.
Here are the dates:
- Monday 19th
- Thursday 22nd
- Monday 26th
- Wednesday 28th
- Friday 30th
You can already book onto the Barn Masterminds, simply click here to reserve your spot.
If you haven’t seen the changes we’ve made to the IR Barn, Ryan and Bob have made a little video, which is at the top of this page.
Usual Service Resumed
From May, we’re hoping that the stars align and we can resume normal service. We’ll be back to larger group meetings around a table in a hotel, with a ‘Doing Day’ in the IR Barn the following day.
For clients who’ve joined us since our last hotel meeting before the first lockdown. These are tough, day-long business meetings. Smithy sets a gruelling agenda, with no time for fun and laughter.
We’ll pick a different subject for each meeting, and talk about that in the morning session, then make it more of an open conversation in the afternoon.
Our monthly meetings have been a key facet of Private Clients since we launched in 2015, and we can’t wait to get started again.
“Private Client meetings are pretty good actually. I go to more than half of them and they’re usually worth the journey.” Kam Saleem, Solihull.
After a couple of years trying different venues, we’re moving the meetings back to our spiritual home, The Belfry, near Sutton Coldfield.
If you haven’t been there, it’s one of the UK’s top golf resorts, so there are always men in amusing trousers wandering around, and there’s a chance that Smithy will be coaxed into actually playing some golf if there’s demand for that sort of thing.
We’ve contracted with The Belfry for six meetings between May and the end of 2021, and we’re pretty sure that nothing at all could stop us from making them happen. Probably.
As usual, after each roundtable meeting, we’ll head to the bar for a drink (on us) and then go out for dinner (again, on us, leave your wallets at home!).
If you DO stay over, you’re in for a treat the following day, because we’re bringing our ‘Doing Days’ back. Our team will be in The Barn for the day and you’re welcome to join us. Grab a coffee and a croissant, and spend some time one-on-one with the Ideal Result team; or test yourself on the football table, your choice.
Here’s all of the dates for your diary.
Tuesday 25th – The Belfry
Wednesday 26th – The Barn
Thursday 24th – The Belfry
Friday 25th – The Barn
Thursday 15th – The Belfry
Friday 16th – The Barn
Wednesday 8th – The Belfry
Thursday 9th – The Barn
Tuesday 12th – The Belfry
Wednesday 13th – The Barn
Thursday 18th – The Belfry
Friday 19th – The Barn
We don’t run roundtables in August or December, usually filling those months with social get-togethers instead of formal meetings.
Our Christmas Party is already booked in…
Friday 10th – Marco Pierre Whites, Birmingham
IR “International Retreats”
It wouldn’t be an Ideal Result event schedule without some international trips, and after a year of cancellations hopefully we’ll be able to actually go somewhere this year.
We couldn’t go on our annual trip to Portugal last year, but we’ve got it in the diary for 2021.
The dates are 8th-11th June, but it might be sensible to pencil in 7th-12th to give us some flexibility incase Portugal is ruled out and we switch the destination to someplace we can go, maybe Greece or Gibraltar.
It’s early yet, but we’ve already started thinking about our international trips for next year and we’re planning our first trip to Morocco, in partnership with The Bucketlist Company, in April 2022. Dates for your diary are 25th-30th of April.
So that’s what we’ve got planned. Get the dates in your diary.
We can’t wait to see you.
