Always A Smile At Guy Simmonds!

You will probably recognise Guy Simmonds as one of the U.K.'s most well known and respected specialist licensed trade business valuers and licensed property sales agents.

In the 1980's we were horrified to discover the high number of people who had entered the licensed trade with virtually no specialist knowledge of how to run a licensed business. Inevitably, many of these people failed - with disastrous consequences involving the loss of their businesses and their homes. Our response was to design and deliver a unique training product to equip prospective licensees with the specialist knowledge essential to minimise the risk of failure and maximise the chances of success in this demanding trade. And so our ‘Inn Business’ course was born.

The unique contribution our “Inn Business” course made to the training of prospective licensees was recognised by Guy Simmonds winning the prestigious National Innkeeping Training Award in 1991.

Despite enormous changes in the licensed trade in recent years Guy Simmonds has robustly held on to one of our fundamental assets - that of total independence so that we can provide counsel and advice in YOUR best interests. Just one glance at the content of our “Inn Business” course should explain to you why Guy Simmonds remains the most prolific and respected training organisation for the licensed trade in the U.K.

Since 1990 we have trained thousands of clients, and in every year since 2003 we have been awarded the highest Quality Assurance status of the BIIAB’s approved centres – securing and retaining the much coveted title of “Centre of Excellence”.

In creating our totally innovative award-winning “Inn Business” course Guy Simmonds has been uniquely able to draw upon our extensive experience of the licensed property market, our detailed knowledge of the processes involved in the buying and selling of licensed businesses and the many pitfalls that await the unwary!

We have combined this knowledge with the talents of a vastly-experienced and talented team of specialist tutors. All our trainers have many years' direct experience of the trade having owned and operated their own highly successful pubs, hotels and restaurants.

“I lost track of how much money the tutors must have saved me with their endless tips on how to avoid making expensive mistakes as well as how to trade profitably. The course has paid for itself many times over”

Gerald Richards, Oxford (attended “Inn Business” Course)
