“DCA Architects has consistently worked with Firestation for more than seven years. We have found their ACCELERATE course invaluable for our partners and senior leaders. This year we will be sending our fifth team member to do the ACCELERATE programme. We have found it essential for developing and investing in our people, providing great all-round business training.”

A six-month business training programme to accelerate your capability and business success.

Accelerate helps good businesses become great. We provide business owners and senior leaders with the skills and mindset to work on their business.

Business owners participate in a unique blend of business training with professionally facilitated coaching focused on sales, leadership, brand, marketing, planning, finance and developing a growth mind-set.

The programme is unique as the new behaviours and skills learnt in the training are enforced and followed up with one-on-one business coaching sessions.

Accelerate is for owners and senior leaders of established, medium size businesses that are profitable and scalable with an ambition to grow regionally, nationally or even internationally.

More than 100 business owners have graduated from our Accelerate programme. 92% of participants identified new growth opportunities or had the motivation or knowledge to progress existing growth opportunities.

Graduating businesses have launched new products and services, accelerated expansion plans into other towns and implemented new leadership initiatives with staff.
