If you are launching a new agency or thinking of doing so, the ABIA can help. It will most probably be the best investment that you've ever made. For one year we will provide an ABIA council member as a personal mentor to guide you through from the initial planning stages to the launch of your fledgling agency. He/she will have had many years experience of setting up and running an ABIA approved introduction agency.

The fee for the Consultancy/Mentoring Service is £2000. This provides a comprehensive ABIA Starting an Introduction Agency guide book, a one-to-one meeting with an ABIA consultant and a full twelve months mentoring. Please call 07919 612 975 to hear more.

Here are a selection of topics covered:

  • Do’s and Don’ts

The ABIA is recognised as a well respected and authoritative voice of the industry around the world. Therefore we are frequently contacted from overseas in regard to the ABIA consultancy/mentoring scheme. Some new agency owners based abroad choose to visit London for their one-to-one meetings, others prefer the ABIA to send a consultant to their country. In these circumstances fees will be priced on application. Please call 07919 612 975 to hear more.
