What We Offer:
A Singular Competitive Advantage for Members

Simply put, we are in the business of helping your organisation compete; we recognise that not all the new fads and technologies will give you an edge, (and if your edge has to be specific to you, in your market too) so we have distilled the best thinking in competitive advantage.

We help create and project your singular, best and most highly differentiated Competitive Advantage / USP that is authentic, 'owned' only by your SME. A market of your own, based on your definition of 'market'.

As a Member of the Institute have access to resources that are specific for SMEs; targeted, powerful means to craft truly and authentically competitive advantage, compelling offers, and creating an edge that improves their position in the market, to help you survive and thrive.
  • Your Competitive Advantage? 80%
  • Your Compelling Advantage? 45%
  • Your Competitive EDGE? 95%

What can I access right now?


We hold all our Workshops here, where you will find a superb environment to work up your Competitive Advantage.

Over one or two days, we can guarantee to show you what is standing in the way of your achieving competitive advantage and the resulting compelling story (your offer), and give you the competitive boost you need to improve revenue!

Just subscribe above and we will ping you out when the next Workshop is scheduled, and keep you up to date with the launch!


Scotland, like other countries has vibrant, specific key ‘industry’ sectors, and we are hosting invite-only Roundtable events, dealing with those individual sectors: how to create a Competitive Advantage within them and develop true customer-market led value to help SMEs within those sectors survive and thrive.

Watch out for announcments relating to these Roundtables – make sure that you are Registered (see above) to get the alerts for these events, as only a limited number of SMEs can fit around our big boadroom table!
