Special Note:

Due to the stay-at-home orders, travel restrictions and just plain common sense, an in-person Mastermind Day is not going to be an option for many companies. Finances are also in short supply for everyone, but the need for sales training, improving your website and marketing is even greater now, especially to teach you and your team how to sell remotely.

Here’s what one company wrote after recently having me do a remote training session for her team:

There were lots of “ah ha” moments and the very next day we were implementing what we learned.” – Susan Dewberry, Atlanta Botanical Gardens, Atlanta, GA – April 2020

I understand that for some of you the idea of having me come in is great, but the cost can be intimidating. A great idea is to bring together some other businesses in your area and share the cost of having me come in to work with you, as a group, for a day or more. I call these Private Group Masterminds. It’s almost the same as having a private training except we’ll work together, sharing ideas and talking through ways to increase sales, improve your websites and marketing, handling objections and more

How is a Mastermind Day different than a conference?

Great question. Your Mastermind Day will be more of a conversation than a presentation. With a small group it’s easier for Alan to facilitate a discussion where everyone is participating. You not only get his world-class expertise, but also the shared knowledge and experience of the other participants. Whether seasoned pros, or industry newcomers, everyone has something to contribute.

How many businesses can we have for our Mastermind Day?

This can be anywhere from 1 other business, up to around 10 total. Alan’s Mastermind Days are more conversation, than presentation, so having more than that will start to feel more like a conference. The sweet-spot is 6 to 8 businesses, 10 to 15 participants.

How long is a Mastermind Day?

Typically running from 9am until around 4pm, Mastermind Day times will be customized to your groups needs and area. To get in as much learning and sharing as possible, your group should either arrange for lunch on site, or to have it brought in. Those are part of the logistics you’ll discuss with Alan when arranging your Mastermind Day.

What will it cost to have our Mastermind Day?

As Alan offers these domestically, and internationally, exact Mastermind Day rates are quoted on a case, by case basis, however they typically range from $6,500 to $8,500 per day, with most averaging around $7,500 per day, plus Alan’s travel (unless you’re lucky enough to schedule your Mastermind Day while Alan is already in your area for another event, which could save you a little). With 10 participating companies that’s an average of only $750 per company. Want an exact quote? Email metext, use the short form on this page, or call 732.422.6362, international 001 732 422 6362

Do the businesses have to be in the same category? (i.e. all DJs, or caterers, or planners…?)

No, of course not. The topics that you’ll discuss are universally applied to all businesses. Alan will tailor the exact topics to the particular group. That said, if all of the participants are from the same category, the content can be more narrowly focused to that industry.

Can I have Alan do a Mastermind Day just for my staff?

Yes, of course. That’s his Private Sales Training service. It’s very similar to the Mastermind Day curriculum, but much more focused on your needs. Want to find out more? Email Alan, use the short form on this page, or call 732.422.6362, international 001 732 422 6362

What are the format and seating arrangements?

To facilitate group conversation it can be a conference room or just a large table. For larger groups a ‘U’ shaped setup works well. You’ll need either a projector/screen, or large flat-screen TV, and a wi-fi connection so Alan can access your websites and any presentation materials.

Who pays for Alan's travel?

If you can arrange your Mastermind Day for when Alan is already in your area, you can save on his airfare. Depending upon the timing, the group may have to cover one or two nights of hotel. Unless Alan is driving to your city, he’ll need ground transportation to/from the venue.

Do the businesses all have to be in the wedding & event industry?

No, while Alan typically speaks and trains in the wedding industry, the ideas are focused on business, not craft, so they do apply to other businesses. If you have a specific business in mind, and you aren’t sure, just contact Alan and ask. Being a professional, he’ll tell you whether this format is, or isn’t appropriate. Email Alantext, use the short form on this page, or call 732.422.6362, international 001 732 422 6362
