Guy Simmonds has been established for over 30 years and has consistently led the field in providing specialist and comprehensive training for those seeking to enter the licensed trade (and for those already operating within it).

Today's licensed trade is NOT something you can “pick up as you go along”. Its demands are wide ranging and challenging, but without doubt, the licensed trade can provide fantastic financial rewards and a superb quality of life beyond the reach of many people.

At Guy Simmonds we have helped literally thousands of clients to:

• understand what the licensed trade has to offer as a business opportunity

• determine for themselves the most appropriate entry option into the trade

• gain all the knowledge necessary to enter safely and access a wide range of support services to acquire and operate their first licensed business

• gain all the skills and knowledge necessary to operate their business venture profitably and professionally.

January 2007 saw the opening of our own brand new freehold training facility. This major investment represents our continued commitment to deliver the very best in cost-effective, practical, profit-focussed and crucially important training for those operating within the licensed retail trade.

There are many courses which can teach you how to run a bar, and many more on general business management. The Guy Simmonds “Inn Business” approach is unique in combining the most appropriate elements of these, to provide the essential knowledge for anyone who wishes to purchase their first freehold, leasehold or tenanted licensed business. It is also suitable for those seeking a management position in the licensed trade.

Our award-winning “Inn Business” course delivered by e-learning appeals to people from all sorts of backgrounds and experience - singles, couples, the young and the not-so-young, those experienced in business as well as those with no experience whatsoever - the only common characteristic being the desire to have a profitable licensed business and to enjoy the resultant financial rewards and lifestyle.

To supplement the course our staff will be pleased to offer individual advice to assist your entry into the trade.

Our total independence enables us to provide completely impartial advice on the opportunities within the licensed trade.

“For anyone to contemplate entering this trade without taking this course is madness. I have learnt so, so much!”

John Whitcombe, Manchester (attended “Inn Business” Course)

“There's obviously an awful lot of thought gone into the material taught on the course.

I think the course should be compulsory for everyone who
plans to have a pub.

Everything exceeded our expectations - simply excellent”

Rachel Hanbury, Brighton (attended
“Inn Business” Course)
