Nigel Botterill, Founder and CEO of the Entrepreneur’s Circle and TheBestof, is one of the most sought after business growth experts in the UK. He’s famous for building eight separate £1M+ businesses from scratch in the UK since 2004. Nigel founded Entrepreneurs Circle in 2010 and his straight talking, practical, advice and training has helped thousands of UK entrepreneurs to rapidly grow their businesses and achieve more than they ever thought possible.


In 2016 Nigel is now launching a new E-learning business across the UK, which is set to revolutionise Entrepreneurial learning and development. Adam Butler Consultancy, known for their top recruitment services amongst SME’s and Entrepreneurs, have been working with Nigel for over 5 years, and were the natural choice to source top talent for such an innovative and forward thinking, entrepreneurial business venture.


Nigel approached Adam Butler Consultancy on the 4th June and was looking for a successful, motivated leader who could drive the new business forward. The successful candidate would be responsible for the sales performance of a national network of up to 400 independent agents selling a cutting edge E-Learning B2B product.


Fiona Cudworth-Elks, Senior Recruitment Consultant said:

“Nigel needed someone to head up a national team of distributors for a new E-Learning product so this National Field Sales Manager/ Sales Director position was absolutely key to the success of the new business venture.”

“Our approach was to initially map out the relevant industries and identify the key people within those organisations who had the skills and experience we believed Nigel was interested in. This initial mapping and research stage was supported with a discreet advertising campaign and a detailed CV search. The combination of head-hunting and resourcing, quickly identified a credible shortlist of suitable candidates that we discussed at length with Nigel.

The next stage was for us to interview / screen the short-list to gain a first hand perspective on the individuals experiences, competencies, and just as importantly their values along with the organisational culture they preferred to work within. At Adam Butler Consultancy we believe it’s important to match job vacancy with skill set match as well as cultural fit. I have recruited for the Entrepreneurs Circle for a number of years now and know the type of person who would fit in well.”

Fiona and members of her resourcing team at Adam Butler Consultancy identified 4 candidates who were interviewed by Nigel and after a period of consideration with his senior management team he offered the role on the 17th June 2016.

Nigel Botterill, Owner and Founder of the Entrepreneurs Circle and TheBestOf said:

“I was really impressed with the results – especially how quickly the team at Adam Butler Consultancy understood our requirement and identified credible candidates. I want to thank everyone involved for all their efforts on this tough recruitment assignment because their hard work is very much appreciated and I am very confident that we have found the person that will quickly drive our new business forward.”
