The TwentyOne Leadership Consultancy Academy

Welcome Packs

6th August, 2018

Creating a consultancy business you are proud of is never easy. But what if I could offer you the opportunity to build the business you have always wanted, work with your dream clients and create the life you want to lead?

Do you lie awake at night wondering where your next client is coming from?

Do you dream of winning your ideal client contracts?

Do you want to learn how to grow your consultancy business exponentially within the next 12 months?

The Consultancy Academy will give you the tools, knowledge and confidence to fast track your consultancy business and reach goals you can’t yet imagine.

In addition, you’ll work on a real-time project, designed to deliver a five to 10-fold return on your investment in the first year.

“Without Richard’s support, I’d still be working a 9 – 5 office job, wishing I’d done something with my degree. Instead, I’ve established a business that I am proud of, that has helped clients to lead a better, healthier life and that is continuing to grow.” 

Sam Thompson – Owner and Executive Nutritionist, Your FoodCoach

The programme

I’m Richard Nugent and I’ve devised The Consultancy Academy programme to share my most important learnings from 15 years working as a leadership consultant.

While I am proud that my business has grown year on year over those 15 years, I’ve certainly faced pitfalls and made mistakes. Now I want to use the experience I’ve gained, good and bad, to help you build and maintain a successful consultancy of your own.

Here’s a video about The Consultancy Academy and how it could benefit you.

During the programme, you’ll experience 12 outstanding face-to-face workshops, delivered by me and a small number of specially invited guests. These workshops will lift the lid on the most important and successful consultancy lessons upon which to build your own highly successful business.

Click here to meet the team you will learn from.

We will create bespoke video content, while group coaching and mentoring and constant support from my team will keep you on track between the live events.

There will also be a specially selected reading list to deepen the learning experience and create bespoke assignments to ensure your journey is hugely successful

Together we will create a real-time project designed to deliver a five to 10-fold return on your initial investment.

Here is a full breakdown of the programme.

Is the programme right for you?

The Consultancy Academy isn’t right for everyone.

But if you have the energy, passion and commitment I can guarantee it will set you on a fast-track to an outstanding consultancy business, if you recognise yourself in one or all the statements below:

  • You have a consultancy business that isn’t achieving the income you’d like
  • Your business experiences huge peaks and troughs
  • You work endlessly without achieving the success that you and your family deserve
  • You aren’t working with clients that you love and are proud of
  • You want to learn from a group of people who are already successful and have learned from their mistakes
  • You’d like a successful consultancy business like TwentyOne Leadership

The programme isn’t for you if:

  • Your business is turning over £1million plus and you love what you’re doing
  • You want to build a coaching only practice or an online only business
  • You want to do consultancy part time

Let’s talk cost

The Consultancy Academy programme costs £10,850 plus VAT – that’s just over £900 per month to set your business up for future success.

Payment may be made monthly across the year starting in January.

Remember that you will be working on a project during the programme that, when implemented effectively, is designed to create five to 10-times your investment in the programme.

My promise to you

The Consultancy Academy programme is a big investment, I appreciate that. I will do everything I can to make it the best investment you have ever made.

I’m so confident that if, after the first three sessions of the programme, you’re not convinced that full completion will benefit you, no further investment is required, and you may leave the programme at that stage, no strings attached.

What will you walk away with?

  • A consultancy business that you are proud of and that enables you to create the life you want to lead.
  • The tools and mindset to create a business beyond what you imagine is possible right now.
  • An implemented plan to grow your business and work with your dream clients.
  • A renewed passion for your work.
  • Published articles or products demonstrating your expertise.
  • Priceless amounts of bespoke experience and advice about your business, your niche and your way forward.
  • A community of colleagues and business friends to support your long-term journey.

And as we plan to form a valuable community throughout the programme, we’ll enjoy a regular reunion after completion, a graduation ceremony and celebratory meal and ongoing support from The TwentyOne Leadership team to ensure the programme keeps on giving and benefiting your business.

Take the next step

The next session of The Consultancy Academy programme starts in January 2019 – start the new year as you mean to go on and sign up now.


If you’d like to talk to me personally about the programme I’d be delighted to schedule a call to answer your questions and discuss the next steps. Email me with Consultancy Academy in the subject field and the questions you would like me to answer and I’ll arrange a call to answer them.

A last word on the Consultancy Academy

I’m truly proud of this programme and I think it is really special.

It’s the result of many years of work, learning, experience and success. It combines knowledge and expertise gained from so many sources on my business journey.

In case you’re interested, here’s a nutshell version of how and why The Consultancy Academy came about.

Back in 2003 I took part in the Kaizen Black Belt programme.

It was intense, it was hard work, but the skills that the programme taught me transformed me as a person and became the very foundation on which I’ve built my business, year on year, for the past 15 years.

In recent years, more and more people are taking their first step into self-employment and creating their own consultancies. I remember all too well how scary it was. I know how many paths there are to choose and how many dead ends there are along the way.

I have created the Consultancy Academy to share the lessons I’ve learned during my business journey, to help others with similar aspirations.

Now I’m here and I’d love to help you.


Three ways that a brilliant jerk will ruin your team

Culture Change

One of the biggest dilemmas your are likely to face in your leadership career comes when your faced with the disruptive – and often destructive – behaviour of a brilliant jerk. Do you fuel their ego? Do you hold onto them for as long as they produce outstanding results, hoping that the rest of the team accept that their knowledge and experience make the pain worthwhile? Or do you create the opportunity for them to leave your team as soon as possible?
