About the event

Why book:

  • Hear other members share their experiences on why and how they made the decision to let go of the day-to-day running of their business.
  • Learn from the challenges faced by other members and how they overcame them.
  • Understand why working on, and not in, your business is so important.
  • Ask others for help: There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and get to know others at a similar stage in their business journey.


Ian Harris is the founder of Search Laboratory, a multi award-winning International SEO and Digital Marketing Agency. In 2012, Ian stepped back to become executive chairman after appointing Chris Attewell as CEO.

Member Ally Maughan is the Co-Founder of People Puzzles. She founded the business as she recognised early in her career that people problems are often the biggest single factor holding a company back from growth.


Digital discussion. There will be a very short presentation from Ian and Ally followed by Q&A and discussion with fellow Club members.
