Neil has delivered over 220 workshops to business owners throughout Norfolk and Suffolk, sharing best practice and his ideas gained over a lifetime in business.

  • Discover how the ‘Three Business Multipliers’ can make a massive difference to your business, and they don’t cost a penny either. Neil will share how these multipliers have worked so well for businesses looking to grow, but don’t want to spend a fortune doing so!
  • In addition, he will cover the ‘Eight Business Boosters’ that can clearly differentiate a business from its competitors, which means we can move the argument away from price and onto value with higher margins. Not rocket science as relatively easy once you know how.


Each session can only accommodate a maximum of 30 people so pre-book a space if you want guaranteed entry. Walk-ins will be accepted, dependant on numbers.

Lilac Cottage Studio (Painting the Winter landscape) -Recreating Monet’s The Magpie

With winter approaching, learn or brush up on your technique for painting snow. Capturing the many colours and shadows created by snow is an often near- elusive technique and we offer you the opportunity to take advantage of our tutor Rob Nelmes’ experience in painting a snowy landscape by exploring and recreating Monet’s The Magpie.

How many shades of white or grey are there? How do you capture the different tones created by snow? How do you create the light and shadows of a snowy landscape? Rob will take you  through tips and techniques to tackle all of these questions.

At the end of this day course, you will have gained some valuable skills regarding landscape and snow, and have the bonus of an insight into the creation of a Monet painting.

Tutor: Robert Nelmes
