Become a CPD Certified Business Strategist

Learn how to create your strategy 
and then teach others how to do the same.

This certification will make you money

What is your first thought when you see someone holds a certified accreditation in their specialism?

Especially when it is from a trusted, recognised and respected body like the CPD Certification Service. 

You think expertise, and expertise equals more trust, less risk and a far higher chance that you will invest in that person.

Certification = Expertise

So when you become a CPD Certified Business Strategist, not only do you have that accreditation against your name, you will also have the skills to teach what you have learnt to your clients. Think about that.

And to quote the CPD certification service:

“Accredited CPD training means the learning activity has reached the required Continuing Professional Development standards and benchmarks. The learning value has been scrutinised to ensure integrity and quality”

In short, the Certified Business Strategist meets and exceeds all expectations of quality and integrity.

High level of expertise

Being certified in strategy demonstrates to clients that you have a high level of expertise in your field and know how to tangibly implement – you talk the talk and walk the walk!

A trusted authority

When awarded this strategy certification, you are establishing yourself as a trusted and credible authority, completing rigorous training and meeting standards in order to pass.

New opportunities

Completing this CPD strategy certification will open up new opportunities and markets, allowing you to expand your customer base and increase your revenue.

The Certified Business Strategist

Question. What is strategy?

Lisa image
Firstly, strategy isn't just about how you make sales, it goes way deeper than that

Because your marketing strategy can only be successful if it is drawn from your overall business strategy that underpins everything you do.

  • What are your values?
  • What is your vision?
  • What is your mission?
  • What is the ecosystem of your business model? 
  • Do you have an exit or scaling plan?

Once you begin to recognise the importance of these fundamental foundations, you will be in a position to create the core of your strategy, and this is what helps the business when things get tough.

The bottom line is that without a strategy that goes deeper and wider, businesses fail in challenging economic times when they don’t need to.

This means that businesses are realising the importance of real business strategy - and you can help them

As more people look for help with business strategy,  it becomes a great financial opportunity for people to become certified in a method that works. 

It is a win-win.

Creating an effective business strategy can...

Define your target market

Identify new opportunities

Analyse your competitors

Create a clear roadmap

The Certified Business Strategist stops this from feeling like a daunting task

Helping you be clear on everything from where you are right now, to where you want to be and how you are going to get there.

Often, business owners don’t even know where to start. Most stall because they don’t have the background knowledge of how to create the strategy that they need to stick to.

Then, when it comes to working with clients on their strategy they realise that their own strategies may not be as solid as they once thought.

The Certified Business Strategist helps business owners to create and build their own effective and comprehensive strategy.

With the knowledge that once this is done, they can use the model they have learnt from to teach this exact methodology to their clients.

“Lisa took my ideas and in under an hour formulated them into a new business strategy for a business which would make me more money without a massive team or working more hours. After asking questions she outlined exactly what to do, individual steps, sequence and the challenges I’d face. I followed what she said to the letter and have launched a business that I absolutely love. Believe the hype – Lisa is a business strategy genius”

"I always knew working with Lisa was going to be good. I was wrong. It was phenomenal! During our time together, Lisa completely devoted her time, energy, and space to my business,. What Lisa has done is help package my business in a way that is more palatable to my clients. I left with hope, determination, and joy, with the intention to come back and work with her more. The more time I spend in Lisa’s world the more I acknowledge her gift. It is effortless, seamless, and completely in service of you.

“The certified strategist course was just what I needed to get my current business in a place where it doesn’t need me in it day to day. Following the strategies and methods on the course allowed me to give my team a clear plan of what of what I wanted from them and where the business is heading over the next year.

It has also enabled me to set up a new business as a business strategist to business owners in the children’s activity sectors. I want to be a huge pioneer in this industry to ensure quality, raise standards and introduce governance. The first launch in my new business is actually happening this Friday! A Business Retreat for Children Activity Provider’s to come and learn all the strategies you taught me and also from my experiences in the industry. Then ultimately I want to launch my own certified course ‘The Certified Children’s Activity Provider’ in Spring 2024.

This was all a pipe dream before I did the course. I’ve always known this is needed in our industry and the course gave me the tools and confidence to actually just do it!! So thank you!

I’d recommend the course to anyone in business as well as those who want to become business strategists themselves. I’ve been in business for 17 years (with lots of success!) but this course taught me so much and how to formalise strategies and processes within my existing businesses as well as create a new business.”
