    I've just completed the 3 day business start up course that was recommended to me by a friend. John and Shaun explained everything in such detail, from their personal experiences, which ultimately led to seemingly daunting topics easier to understand. Taxation and bookkeeping for example now don't seem so much of a headache. A great course for anyone just starting up and the free documents you receive after completing each day are a massive help. Thanks again!

      The courses I have attended this year have been fabulous. The trainers were very informative and delivered their expertise in a very clear, concise and friendly manner. They even made taxation easy to understand and interesting!! The support materials are also fantastic especially the easy to use and invaluable book keeping balance sheets.

        Amazing advice and support through the online business training. This was my first time with zoom , John and Shaun were both really knowledgeable and helpful, and answered any questions i had. The information gained through the three 4 hour sessions was fantastic! all the course material was sent after the session in case there was anything i missed, as well as useful templates and spreadsheets. The whole team at MENTA have been great, they will always answer emails quickly, and are on hand when you call. Fantastic service, i highly recommend anyone looking to start a business to do this course!
