BESPOKE BUSINESS REVIEW
WITH ANNIE ARMITAGE
I have had my photography business for 11 years and I am proud that through investing in both business and photography training throughout my career I am now at the stage that I can pass on what I have learnt on my journey to be a successful photographer. I am already a regular speaker at The Societies convention and also at the Master of Photographers Meet the Masters Day.
My Bespoke Business Review, is your chance to discuss your business aspirations and dreams. During the three hour 1:1 session I’ll share my knowledge and experience, giving you insight, and help you put a plan together to give you the best chance of success. These take place either in Kingston upon Thames or at my private members’ club in Mayfair, London. It includes teas, coffees and lunch.
£350 inc VAT payable in advance of the session.
I also provide an Annie Power Hour which can be on Skype or in person to discuss any issues you have with your photography business and just need to brainstorm ideas in order to have a different view of your present situation. Sometimes it is just a few tweaks in a business that can make all the difference.

I have always admired Annie’s strong branding and business sense. I decided to book a Bespoke Business Review with Annie to go through my offering and adjust my business practices to offer a better service to my customers whilst reaching my business targets. Annie is generous with her time and advice, she helped me prepare for the session by filling out a comprehensive questionnaire and made suggestions for improvements on all the various aspects of my business. I left with a clear action plan and feeling very positive about the year ahead. Annie is very thoughtful, a good listener and a great business woman.
I booked Annie for a day of business training earlier this year. I needed a knowledgeable fellow photographer to review my current business practices and provide some strategic feedback. Annie was very generous with her time and knowledge. She was thorough and made sure that we structured our day in such a way that all the topics that I needed to discuss would be covered in plenty of detail. I left our meeting energised and with a doable and realistic to-do list to take my business to the next level. I would wholeheartedly recommend Annie’s bespoke business review to any photographer with a high-end business model.
I wasn’t able to attend Annie’s talk at SWPP’s recent Business School, so when I heard that she was offering 1:1 sessions I jumped at the chance to benefit from her expertise. Long before the meeting, Annie was in touch to ask what aspects of my business I needed advice with, along with a request for a list of examples of my brand that I was to bring along with me.
Annie has a lovely personality that is very welcoming and were soon discussing her impressions of my business from what she had already researched. Annie then went on to discuss a timeline of events that should occur when creating my client experience which I found very useful and am putting into practice. The meeting was very much a discussion with Annie asking me questions about how certain aspects of my business operated (and giving her frank opinion when she thought it would make an improvement). It was very much a two way conversation which I found very useful. Annie was also very generous in recommending her favoured suppliers which was very informative.
Throughout our meeting Annie was honest and forthright whilst being incredibly generous with her knowledge which has been gained over many years of trading as a leading family photographer. I came away with a massive list of tasks ‘to do’ (Annie even sent me her review of our meeting to append to the pages and pages of notes that I made during our meeting).
I would heartily recommend Annie’s Bespoke Business Review to anyone who feels they need help in improving their business and customer experience – definitely money well spent!John Starns
