Learn Play Grow - Testimonials
"I previously worked as senior manager of a children’s adventure theme park, and came to a point where I wanted to use my skills to build my own business. Through my management work I obviously had a very good knowledge of the children’s activity, educational and entertainment market, and I decided to invest in a franchise opportunity. When I started looking, I quickly realised there was a lot of choice, it took me a long time to create my short list of the ones I thought offered the best value for money, coupled with the potential of developing a good income level. After talking to a number of the companies over the phone, it was the conversation with Nino Severino that made me decide that Learn Play Grow was the best choice for me. Nino came across as a very genuine person who had incredible passion for the programme that he and his late wife Elena Baltacha had created while they were on the world tennis tour. It was a very long conversation covering all the possibilities that LPG can offer an owner, and for me particularly how they encourage their owners to be involved in the development of new products and the creative side. I am now loving my new life as an LPG owner based in the Norwich territory, and I have been working closely with Nino to develop our first puppet, Bella the Bunny, it’s all very, very exciting."Sheila, Norwich
"I am currently working as a teacher, but I am also very interested in using the skills I am developing to build my own business, I knew the longer I left it, the more difficult it would become. I was speaking to a friend who runs their own business and they confirmed what I was feeling at the time, launching a business while working as a teacher would be very difficult and very risky, they then suggested looking at the franchising option. Learn Play Grow had a very strong reputation in the Ipswich area, it also included many of the child development components I was interested in, so I contacted the head office for a prospectus and more information. Anna Severino, the LPG National Development Manager followed up the pack with a phone call, and I must say that this was a very positive experience. Anna just outlined in a very clear and concise fashion, what Learn Play Grow included in the programme, why it was so successful and how she felt I would be perfect as an LPG owner. Since signing the contract I have thrown myself into my business, still keeping my career as a teacher, I deliver some of the schedule myself, and the ones I don’t, I have a coaching team who do these for me. The online management system is simply world class, my fiancée is also very interested in business and this has become a great opportunity for us to work together on a mutual interest, he focuses on this management side and it works very well for us."Melanie, Ipswich
"My journey to becoming an LPG owner is not a typical one! I applied for the manager’s role running an LPG territory in London for an investor, but Nino suggested I considered actually becoming an LPG owner. The more I got involved with the Learn Play Grow family, the more I realised what a fantastic business opportunity it was, and it was this that motivated me to make a big decision. I spoke to Nino the LPG owner and explained that I was very interested in taking the next step and owning my own LPG business, he recommended a territory that he thought would work, I discussed this with the LPG franchisee owner I worked for, and he was very supportive of my ambitions. I have worked in the fitness industry for quite a few years now, and got a good reputation through my work, which led to having a number of high profile celebrities in my portfolio. My passion is working with young children, and this is the opportunity that Learn Play Grow gives me. I am especially interested in the LPG Party package, it’s very professional and extremely high quality, which means it represents itself very strongly in the market place. I think I have a very positive personality which I think my party clients really appreciate, the party consultancy side is an area of the business I really love, it gives me a chance to work with parents very closely to professionally design and develop a party for one of the most precious people in their lives. My aim is to develop my business so it becomes one of the most successful LPG businesses at running and delivering the party package."Nicola, Romford
"As a mum of two and still committed to my children’s upbringing it has been very challenging to find an opportunity that fits my stage of life and situation. Although I am passionate about being the best mum I can be, I am also conscious that one day both my children will be going to school and I will have a lot more time on my hands. After a very helpful chat with Nino who actually travelled all the way out to North Yorkshire, I felt Learn Play Grow was the opportunity I was looking for. I was totally honest with Nino and said that I would approach it from a part time basis initially, he was fully supportive, and we explored the option of taking on a coaching team to help me build the business so when I was ready to commit to more coaching time the business would have grown to a good level. Before the family I used to love coaching, especially children, and always wanted to be as professional as possible and always give 100% to whatever I committed to. It’s fantastic working with Nino and his team, as they have the same outlook on all they do, I honestly can say, the Head Office team always goes that extra mile to support me in all my plans to build my LPG business."Anna, Harrogate
"Since my very first meeting with Nino the owner of LPG, the Bury St Edmunds territory has developed very rapidly. He told me that from day one it would take three weeks to develop a substantial portfolio of Learn Play Grow sessions and this is exactly what has happened. I decided to sign for the “LPG Premier Package” this provides you with a dedicated LPG commercial manager who works through the process of developing a strong level of turnover, guaranteed or your (PP) payment returned in full. Within three weeks I have 10 venues turning over an impressive amount with excellent profits. I’m over the moon with my territory and feel very excited about the future. Anna the National Development Manager has been an outstanding business mentor to me, guiding me through all the processes every step of the way. I now consider her a true friend and feel very much a member of the Learn Play Grow family."Sarah, Bury St. Edmunds
"Felixstowe is truly a success story; I have developed a lifestyle for myself that is immensely rewarding and very satisfying. The Felixstowe territory is an example of what can be achieved with the Learn Play Grow programme and its strong brand identity, with 16 schools, 12 nurseries, parties’ and one to one sessions in the portfolio of business. I now manage 5 coaches who help me deliver my large coaching schedule and will increase my staff with another territory being applied for next month. One aspect of the Head Office initiatives I really value is the “LPG Creative Programme”, as Nino always says, every owner in our network has a voice, and he respects this, and listens to any ideas that we may have. The Head Office team are committed to our support, and even though some of us quite a distance away, they have an amazing Zoom schedule which keeps us all intouch with each other. They are always delivering business support and education, and also open forums where we can all meet to discuss our experiences in our Learn Play Grow businesses."Anna, Felixstowe
