What Can You Expect From The C.O.S.T. Optimiser Academy?

At the Academy, I work with your team consistently over a six month period to help them build the skills required for your Procurement function to become a world-class performer and apply them to deliver both short term impact and long term sustainable value to your Company.


There's an old saying - "Always start with the end in mind" and that is the core objective of the intensive 2 day strategy session that I run with you.

So that you can get the absolute maximum value from the Academy, and I can tailor my support to fit your specific needs, I host you for two days worth of thinking, reviewing where you are right now and defining what success looks like over the course of the next 6/12 months.

Value - £5000


Until you take action, any new knowledge and skills that you develop as a result of the training will be just that - new knowledge and skills!

However, translating knowledge into action can be challenging, especially when you get back into a busy office.

To ensure that you have the necessary support to tailor your C.O.S.T. Optimiser Programme to meet the needs of your organisation and to help you to maintain accountability, each Academy member undertakes a monthly 1-2-1 mentoring session with me.

This ensures that you apply your knowledge and skills and deliver tangible benefits quickly and build momentum over the longer term.

Value - £10000


A key element of the Academy is that you not only get to apply the new skills and knowledge across your organisation, you also get to share your experience with your peer group.

Each Academy group is carefully selected to ensure that members are open to group development, that they are prepared to contribute to the success of other members and are happy to share their experiences, both positive and negative.

Each group is made up of up to 15 non competing companies, facilitated by either me or one of my coaches. Each meeting creates a unique environment that provides each member with individual insight, coaching, strategies and leadership skills to help you make better decisions and achieve better results for your company.

Value - £10000


As an Academy member, you'll be guided through an in-depth look at each element of the C.O.S.T. Optimiser Programme and become fully adept at implementing the four phases of the C.O.S.T. Optimisation Formula.

Value - £6000


In conjunction with a number of leading software companies, I have developed a cloud based Supplier Relationship Management solution with integrated Contracts Register, as well as a cloud based Savings Tracker.

As an Academy member, you benefit from FREE set up (normally £5,000) and reduced monthly licensing fees. Collectively, this means that you will save over £7,000 in the first year.

Together, these provide you with the essential tools needed to deliver long term sustainable savings.

Value - £7000


The C.O.S.T. Optimiser Programme consist of 6 core modules, each jammed packed with proven tools, templates and processes.

Not only will you get instant access to these tools, you'll get in-depth training in how to apply them within your Company.

Value - £10,000


The relationships that you form within your Mastermind Group will be maintained long after the completion of the Academy programme. The shared experiences and insights that you offer each other will continue.

I have established a dedicated Linkedin Group where all Academy members across all Groups can meet and share content, find answers, expand their network of influence and establish themselves as experts in their industry.

Value - priceless!


You're never far away from the answer to your challenges. Throughout your Academy membership, you will have access to our Online Support Portal, where I and other Academy members are available to answer your questions and provide additional insight.

I am so thrilled and delighted to give you an opportunity to join the C.O.S.T. Optimiser Academy, an incredible incubator for producing world-class Procurement and Supply Chain Leaders.

Acceptance into this Academy is strictly limited. I pride myself on delivering real value and working with those individuals and organisations that have the will and desire to take the actions required to deliver massive sustainable value.

Every application is evaluated and carefully considered by my team before a decision is reached. This is to ensure that the Mastermind Groups operate effectively with a peer group that all understand and value the need to contribute positively to support and guide each other.

Each applicant must pass each of the following stages:

1. Application form

2. Personal interview

3. A 30 minute strategy session

Once accepted, Academy members undertake the journey to master the modules of the C.O.S.T. Optimiser Programme, becoming a true leader and instigator of change within their organisations.

Mastermind Groups consist of a maximum of 15 members from 'non competing' companies. If you're ready to take the next step, click on the link below and start your application process.

I wish you all the best with your application.

Frequently Asked Questions...

What's covered in the webinars?


The Webinars are designed to take you step by step through the process of applying the C.O.S.T. Optimiser Programme. Each of the 6 modules covers the essential elements that you need to embrace and embed within your Company to really guarantee the benefits of any cost reduction/ value creation campaign that you undertake.

How do the Mastermind Meetings work?


Each month of the Programme, all Academy Group members come together for a one day mastermind session. These meetings are structured to help you to go into each element of the programme in more detail, to share experiences around the group and to effect discussion on any specific issues that you are facing.

So the Mastermind meetings are part instructional, part discussion, part exploratory and part networking to create even greater value.

What if I miss one of the webinars?


All webinars are recorded and you will have access to them via a Bootcamp members area, so if you can't make one of the Webinars, you won't be losing out. I would encourage you to get involved in each Webinar however, so that you can ask questions specific to your Company.

Is this approach relevant to my industry?


C.O.S.T. Optimisation is relevant to all Companies, irrespective of size, sector or geography. The approach is focused on delivering real value and aligning all aspects of the company to get the maximum from their end to end supply chain.

I have successfully applied the approach to companies in Retail, Healthcare, Heavy Engineering, Transport, Utilities, Charities, Professional Services, Financial Services, Manufacturing.

What's the deal with the software?


I have been working with a number of specialist software houses to develop a set of essential tools that you will need to help you track and deliver the bottom line benefits. These are cloud based solutions, and can be set up and operational very quickly.

Included within the cost of the programme is all set up costs and a reduction in the standard operating costs. I also provide you with ongoing support to help you gain the maximum benefit from these systems.

How does your 400% ROI Guarantee work?


I offer a very simple guarantee.

If, for whatever reason, you feel that the C.O.S.T. Optimisation approach will not deliver at least 4 times your investment with me, then I will gladly refund you the full cost of the programme. No questions asked.

I am here to deliver value - if you don't feel that you are getting value, then I don't want you to feel at any risk.

How long will I have access to the programme?


The course is available online with unlimited access 24/7. As long as you are a paid member in good standing, your access will never be revoked.

Can't I just figure it out myself?


Probably…but why would you want to? Wouldn’t you rather just take a short-cut and learn what has already been proven to work?

Look, I’ve worked with many companies who made every mistake you can make and have spent tens-of-thousands of pounds testing and tweaking the procurement and supply chain process so that you don’t have to. But hey, if you want to spend your valuable time and hard-earned money trying to figure this out on your own, you certainly can.
