WEST Cork is hosting ‘Book Yourself Solid’, a three-day business mentoring event, from September 21st to 23rd at the West Cork Hotel in Skibbereen.

Drawing attendees from all around the world, the focus of the event is to help entrepreneurs and business professionals grow their businesses. 

‘Book Yourself Solid is a powerful, reliable system for getting more clients and customers than you can handle, even if you hate marketing and selling,’ said Walt Hampton. 

Hampton, who resides in Castletownshend, is president and COO of Book Yourself Solid Worldwide. 

Book Yourself Solid is based upon a New York Times-bestselling book by Michael Port. According to Port, 93% of small business owners who use the system see a 40% increase in their revenues in the first year. 

The system is effective for entrepreneurs and business professionals including retailers, service professionals such as accountants and solicitors, consultancies and advisers; indeed any business that would like to significantly increase its client/customer base and revenue stream benefits from Book Yourself Solid.

At the event, attendees will learn the 16 building blocks of the system, and have the opportunity to network and collaborate with like-minded entrepreneurs and business professionals from around the world.  

There will also be workshops and seminars on cutting edge business systems and best practices in business. Featured speakers and workshop leaders will include elite level business coaches and consultants from Ireland as well as from the US. the list compiled by John Gibson cataloguing the music.

In addition to the business seminars and workshops, attendees will enjoy the experience of night kayaking on Lough Hyne with Atlantic Sea Kayaking and a trip to Drombeg Stone Circle. The event will culminate with a VIP dinner on Friday evening at the beautiful Church Restaurant in Skibbereen.

‘With the visionary addition of Ludgate to the community and the draw of Digital Week, Skibbereen has become a business hub, an entrepreneurial destination,’ Hampton says. ‘We couldn’t imagine a better place to host this international event. The Skibbereen Chamber of Commerce has provided amazing support for the event,’ added Hampton.
