What will a mentor do for you?
“Ann – I did a presentation to my network group last week about my business and it’s the first time I’ve sounded like I understand my own business! And I wanted to say thanks for that. After working with you for the past few months I now have a structured approach, a niche, a social media strategy and a high profile that is beginning to grow my business. I feel I have a direction that I am motivated and excited to go after. Thank you for all of your hard work.” Siobhan Costello Personal Empowerment Trainer http://www.siobhancostello.com/
“Two words come to mind when I think of what Ann Hawkins has done for my business and my life – focus and inspire. Ann changed my busy life from a confused and ineffective list of ideas and thought processes to a place of clarity which has for the first time allowed me to move forward at a pace I never thought possible. Take any opportunity you get to spend time with Ann if you are looking for the best way to grow your business and have a more satisfying life.” Mark Peters Managing Director, Star Radio Cambridge http://www.markpeters.co.uk
Would you like me to do the same for you and your business?
It’s easy – Here’s how it works
- Do you know where you want to get to but feel you are going round in circles?
- Is the effort you put in inconsistent with the rewards you get?
- Do you know what you should be doing but keep procrastinating?
- Do you have lots of ideas but don’t know how to organise them into earnings?
- Is your life out of balance?
The main thing that stops people from achieving what they are truly capable of is lack of accountability. I keep you focused on taking consistent action on the right “high payoff” activities that lead to your ultimate professional and personal success. You will learn how to maximise your true potential and make faster progress to tangible results in all areas of your life.
A mentor is different to a coach. While I use coaching techniques I also use my experience of what makes businesses work – combining the latest business techniques and technology with timeless business practices gained in over 25 years working with businesses of all types and sizes. As well as this you will benefit from my considerable network of skilled business contacts that will bring you new opportunities and exposure – which could include selling your profitable business.
How would your business life look today, if I had been mentoring you and helping you make the right decisions for the last six months?
Both you and your business will benefit from the kind of essential support you need to achieve the results you have identified.
Fees vary depending on the amount of work it is likely to take to get the results you want. Once the fees are agreed you are free to email and skype me as many times as you need to, safe in the knowledge that there are no hidden extras.
When you have someone in your corner you can speak to on a regular basis, you can make great strides towards the achievements you’ve identified.
What you get is a 100% personal, tailored service designed to get you to where you want to be as fast as possible.

Here’s what some of my most recent clients say:
“We’ve hired Ann to work with us on several projects this year. She has provided mentoring support, business finance guidance and most recently, and on an ongoing basis, is helping us scale up to manage a new business route which will be a huge activity for us in 2012.
Her knowledge in terms of breadth and depth seems to be never ending and she’s helping us achieve the turnover, profit and results that we would have had in 2012, in 2011, which is the perfect outcome.” October 26, 2011
Liz Weston. M.D. Weston Communications
“It can be difficult working out what the next steps are – you know where you want to get to but don’t necessarily know how to get there.
Working with Ann is one of the most valuable things you can invest in to help you. Ann is expert at knowing what you need to do to achieve the next steps in your business and her guidance and support in putting things in place to ensure you get there make it all so much easier.
Instead of racing around wondering what the answers are I am now happily creating a really solid foundation to take my business to the next level and it just feels so much more enjoyable and effective. Thanks to Ann.” November 8, 2011 Top qualities: Expert, High Integrity, Creative

“I am proud to have Ann Hawkins as my Mentor.
When I started my new business earlier this year I knew that I would have to improve my exposure . When you don’t know what you don’t know, then what you do know is that you need help.
I attended one of Ann’s Workshops and was most impressed with the way she cared for and treated everybody in the room, whether they had no previous experience when they walked in, or quite a lot. Everybody came away from the event with so much.
She is a master and from that event I more fully understood how to rapidly increase my contacts and so much more. She is always happy to take my calls and answer my questions and is so free with her advice and encouragement. So if you need to ramp up your activity contact Ann for the “fast-track” to excellence!” November 28, 2010

“Ann Hawkins…. A name that you just won’t forget after meeting her @ The Inspired Group (TIG) Events. Having been an accountant @tyrrellandco for over 8 years now – and only being 25, I have managed to develop my skills in many areas (not just accountancy), this is thanks to Ann and her events. I have found these events to provide me with the energy – not just the inspiration, to continue to develop my skills as a business person. The speakers provided are so engaging I could listen to them all day long, she really knows how to get the audience’s attention and thus these events continue to grow – along with her sparkling reputation as a mentor. She is an expert in many fields and I can only learn from her!! A true star and a LOVELY person too. If you haven’t been to The Inspired Group…. I can assure you, you wont get that sparkle in any other event in Cambridge, I’ve been networking for 4 years now, I should know!

Ann gave our group a great talk on the 12 Steps to Success which was very motivational and enjoyed by everyone present. Ann is very clear and concise when talking so people listen and take note of the inspirational things she says. People go away with new ideas and thoughts to apply to their businesses. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to other groups and will be inviting her to talk at other events I organise. Elaine Vandelli ~ Director ~ Hi 2 Events Leics. Northants. & Rutland Regional Secretary for FSB http://www.leicesterbusinessevents.co.uk
Thank you very much for taking our Business Spotlight at Business for Breakfast in Cambridge. The talk was really fascinating and you held everyone’s attention the whole time. I can tell from the way you talk about Napoleon Hill and the original Mastermind group that this is something that you passionately believe in and I’m sure you have converted many others as well. I look forward to hearing you again at another of our venues in the near future. Kathryn Fletcher http://www.bforb.com
Ann has recently been the Keynote Speaker at both The Cambridge Business Club and The Norfolk Business Club where her highly acclaimed ‘12 Steps to Success’ presentation held the audience spellbound. This interactional presentation takes us on a journey from the very first ‘Lunar Groups’ through to today’s more commonly known Mastermind Groups. The twelve steps are explained extracting detail along the way from an eager audience, climaxing with a live demonstration on how Like-minded business people can really work together in a very powerful way to drive their respective businesses forward using combined experiences. Very powerful indeed…: Richard Kerrison, Chief Executive, The Business Club Cambridge Ltd & The Business Club Norfolk Ltd
