Let Us Help You Achieve Your Goals Faster


"We sold our business for £25M"

I approached him about helping us formulate a strategy to exit the business in 3-5 years. He accelerated the process of achieving a successful exit – within 18 months of hiring Romney we sold the business for £25,000,000.



"From Start-Up to £10,000,000"

We doubled our revenue year on year … and grew from a start-up to sales £10,000,000 in 10 years. Romney’s input has been worth hundreds of thousands if not millions.

What Recruitment Industry Leaders Are Saying

  • Denise Walker FIRP Denise Walker FIRP Absolutely Business
    Romney’s style is different from the norm: he mentors clients in a way that is both authoritative and nurturing; people just want to impress him, and this brings out the best in them. I have seen how he imparts his deep knowledge, experience and passion for business growth, and is especially passionate for the need for clear differentiation in the chosen markets.  Recruitment Growth Accelerator gives Owner Managers the power to generate real growth in their own unique future businesses, based on adapting real examples to their own reality in our constantly-evolving industry of today.

    The impact that the programme has had on the business has been amazing. Not only do we now have a more polished, motivated, engaged team that is taking a more consultative approach when dealing with clients and candidates, but more importantly, we are seeing an increase in our permanent revenue which I do firmly equate to the Real Differentiation Programme.  Please pass on my huge thanks to Romney - it is fantastic to learn from someone with the experience and depth of knowledge he has, and I can't thank him enough for deciding to share that knowledge and expertise with us.

The 8 Pillars of Sustained Growth in Value

The recruitment industry has changed dramatically in recent years and will continue to do so with increasing speed and in ways no one can predict with certainty.  If you want to build an extraordinary business -- one that can survive economic recessions, seismic shifts in global labour markets, disruptive technology, the trend towards internal recruitment, and ever increasing competition -- then the Parthenon in Athens provides a model for how this may be achieved.

For 25 centuries, the Parthenon has withstood fire, earthquakes, explosions, vandalism and the elements.  It's strength comes from its 46 outer columns and 23 inner columns.  Similarly, there are 8 "pillars" that you must put in place to build a really successful recruitment business.

In the above diagram, each pillar represents a module from the Recruitment Growth Accelerator programme.  Module One provides a strong foundation, and together the other Modules support sustained growth in sales, profits and business value.  How many of these 8 pillars do you currently have in place?

Do You Qualify for Membership?

Recruitment Growth Accelerator is not for everybody.  Your suitability for the programme isn't based on the size of your company.  Our members range from start-ups and boutique search firms to international recruiting and staffing companies.  It's got more to do with what your goals are.  Do you want a "lifestyle business" or a "high growth business"?

Take this Self-Assessment to See If You're a Good Candidate for RGA

INSTRUCTIONS: For each row of check boxes below, tick EITHER the box in the left hand column OR the one in the right hand column, based on which sentence best describes your situation.

The Lifestyle Business

According to Wikipedia, "a lifestyle business is a business set up and run by its founders primarily with the aim of sustaining a particular level of income and no more; or to provide a foundation from which to enjoy a particular lifestyle.

These are firms that depend heavily on founder skills, personality, energy, and contacts.  Lifestyle businesses typically have limited scalability ... because such growth would destroy the lifestyle for which their owner-managers set them up."

  • You don't want the hassle of managing employees - you're happier working solo
  • You're happy where you are, and have no real desire to get any bigger
  • You'd rather focus on maximizing your personal income now instead of building an asset for the future
  • You're looking for recruitment or social media training to help you make more placements

  • RGA isn't a good fit for you currently.

The High Growth Business

The OECD defines a high growth business as "a firm of 10 or more employees that grows either its employees or turnover by an average of more than 20 per cent per year for three consecutive years."

Having 10 or more employees is NOT a pre-requisite to enroll in the Recruitment Growth Accelerator programme.  Rather it's the ambition to expand and create sustained earnings growth which characterizes RGA members.

  • You want to build a business that operates successfully without you
  • Your business has plateaued, or isn't growing as quickly as you would like
  • You're willing to live modestly and re-invest your profits to create significant wealth in the future
  • You're looking for "business" training to help you scale your business and achieve a successful exit

  • You're an ideal candidate for RGA.
