How much does an LMI-UK franchise cost?

We have taken a radical approach to becoming an LMI UK franchisee that mirrors the approach we have to developing client relationships. We want you to experience what we have to offer in stages, only moving to the next having had a positive experience and feeling confident in your investment. The total cost of an LMI UK franchise is £15,499, broken down as follows:

1st Investment: £49+Vat
Attend our Foundations of Success Workshop that introduces the ideas and practical tools that underpin LMI's approach to helping people lead and manage themselves, their teams and their organisations more effectively.
Duration: 1/2 Day

2nd Investment: £3,000+Vat
Join the LMI UK team as an Associate, yourself completing LMI's most popular development programme whilst being trained in the basics of LMI's sales and coaching process. We expect you to win your first clients during this stage which will more than cover your investment up to this point. If you wish, you can continue as an LMI UK team member without further investment although by now, having experienced first-hand the impact of the LMI process, most will proceed towards becoming a full franchisee.
Duration: 8 Weeks

3rd Investment: £6,000+Vat
At this stage you will be personally coached through LMI's premier leadership programme as well as being given intensive training and support to develop your LMI business in the direction you would like it to go. At the end of this stage you will be fully versed in the core LMI offering, you will have experienced tremendous personal and professional benefit and you will have your own LMI clients and be well on the way to making this a cost-neutral process.
Duration: 12 Weeks

4th Investment: £6,450+Vat
Having been through LMI's two most commonly purchased programmes and being well on your way to establishing a solid client base, this final investment takes you to full franchisee status. You will receive access to and master copies of all LMI programmes and be in a position to begin building your own LMI team.
