Make Next Year Your Best Yet

 When Was The Last Time You Took A Really Productive Day Out Just For You?

BluePrint 2018 is a unique and successful one day workshop that is back this year due to high demand and strong results.
Most people know the value of taking time out to think, plan and prioritise, but despite this, not everyone takes the time to do it – or indeed knows the most effective way of doing it.
Wouldn’t you agree that it’s probably more vital than ever to be clear on what your priorities are?
  • Location: Emmaus Centre, Swords, Dublin
  • Date: Friday 8th December 2018, 9:30am to 4.30pm
  • Early Bird Price before 9th November: €197 (including lunch); RRP €237



More Clarity Leads To More Focus, Which Leads to Better Results.”

What difference do you think it would make to your business and life if you were 20% clearer on where you’re going and why?  What about 50% or even 100% clearer?

It's never been easier to be busy doing nothing. And it’s never been more important to get clearer on what matters most to you.

'BluePrint 2018', will make a big difference to your year – in both your business and personal life.

"It gave me time to think and plan my year; it helped crystalise my thoughts. My mind was opened to new areas and possibilities and I have a more positive mindset as a result."

~ Karen Morton, EMEA Marketing Director, Dell


At this time of the year most people set resolutions or goals for the year ahead.  Unfortunately, most never achieve these goals or find themselves setting ‘smaller goals’ to be sure of getting them.  Yet they never really ‘stretch’ themselves.
At the ‘BluePrint 2018’ workshop you will learn why this happens, and more importantly how to avoid it.  The day will be run in a workshop format with similar minded people, which means that you will get the chance to bounce your ideas off people from different backgrounds, careers and walks of life.  You'll also have a chance to hear ‘Uncommon Solutions’ to some of your immediate business and career problems.
You will leave this 1-day event with:
  • More clarity on your long term future
  • Your top priorities for this year clearly identified
  • A written action plan
  • Information on how to keep yourself motivated for the year ahead
  • Inspiration to take on new challenges
Apart from getting the above, by taking this time out you will also:
  • Share a day with like-minded people
  • Network with people who are well connected and willing to help
  • Get a chance to learn from others’ experience
  • Get the opportunity to bounce ideas off experienced business people
  • Get creative ideas about how to ‘jump’ your business and life forward
Note:  This BluePrint workshop is open to anyone - working, not working, business owners or self-employed people.
The format of this interactive workshop is a mix of:
  • Personal Reflection
  • Goal Setting
  • Education & Learning
  • Personal Planning
  • Valuable Time Out
As well as being a really useful day of thinking and planning it’s also a great day for your personal growth and self-development.  The day will be facilitated by Shane Cradock, a leading coach, advisor and speaker.

sc-saba“I have attended Shane’s workshop’s and have worked with him on a one to one basis. His guidance is excellent and rewarding as it has helped me be more focused on my business. He has fantastic intuition, business acumen and an ability to challenge and get the best from his clients.”

Paul Cadden, Owner of Saba Dublin Restaurant

next-gen-sc“In the month after attending TimeShift I’ve had great results. My team is significantly over our sales target because of improved productivity and energy. And I’m getting out of the office earlier than ever because our key results are done which gives me more time for my personal life.”

Dervila Corver, Director, Next Generation Recruitment

cricket-sc“TimeShift helps to develop and understand your working life. It’s more than just a work course though. The course is so work and life changing that really the pre course material should sell the product better.”

Andrew Leonard, Marketing Manager Cricket Ireland, Score – 9/10

“It is not only essential for personal success, clarity and direction, it is important for good quality of life. The workshop gave me a lot of food for thought. I‘ve realised how little energy and clarity I have at the moment and how much I can be scared of the future.”

Sarah Doyle, Executive Coach

“Blueprint is a great day to organise self-clarity on what you want to achieve with lots of practical tools to help you make really a change. The day helped me to re-look at my overall objectives both personally and in business and it helped me to figure out what I really want.”

Phelim Pekaar, Score 10/10

brown-thomas-logoWorking with Shane over the past 8 weeks has has really changed my life. The work (Blueprint + TimeShift) has had a really positive effect on my productivity, clarity of mind and ability to get more of what matters done.

Before I was focusing solely on my professional life but not getting the most from my personal life. I now realise that balanced success isn’t just a concept but actually possible. I have learned the importance of planning to do the things I love to do the most in all areas of my life.

I feel much more in control of my work and life goals and feel like I can achieve anything. The results to date have been fantastic and I have developed so much personally.

Gretta Nash Cadden, Human Resources Manager, Brown Thomas Regional Stores and BT2

growth-investments-logoShane has not only transformed my business, dragging me into the 21st century, and helping me create a vision that I am proud of, but he has also given me the tools to find the balance between my work and personal life. I am a much happier and fulfilled person all round since engaging with him.

The Thrive Forum is unique. 12 successful business owners from diverse fields. People that you admire, using their collective knowledge to further you and your business. Holding you to your values and pushing you when you fall short, chaired by Shane. Sounds too good to be true, but it’s not.

Richard Cotter, Managing Director, Growth Investments Ltd.

beautiful-jobs-logoI thought I was too busy to do this workshop but Shane convinced me to try it and I am so glad that I did.  I am shocked at what I have achieved in the past month. My business has immediately improved because of my focus and mental clarity.

This training has impacted on my entire life – business and personal. I can’t stress how valuable a course like this is. It has been very inspiring, energising and refreshing!

Highly recommended for anyone wanting to get the best of themselves and reach an ideal work-life balance, and also great work results.

Maria Morgan, Managing Director,

I had attended Shane’s one day Blueprint workshop previously and found it very beneficial in creating clarity and focus on the important things in life. I was unable to attend the workshop this year but thankfully Shane had developed this online course based around the workshop, which allowed me go through the process in my own time.

BluePrint online is set up in  8 easily digestible sections comprising 10 minute videos. In these Shane outlines the Blueprint process and you then fill in the workbook to put the learnings into action. Each section can be done in 30 minutes – ideal for people with busy schedules.

The videos capture Shane’s personable and humorous style, which makes the process of reflection and goal setting very enjoyable. They also have the added advantage that you can replay them, allowing you to pick up on some ideas you may have missed the first time and amend your plan accordingly.
I would strongly recommend the online course for people who can’t attend the one day Blueprint workshop and want to gain clarity and focus for the year ahead.

Declan Connolly, Brand Manager

brown-bag-films-logoWorking with Shane has made a huge difference to my professional and personal life. Shane provided me with a key to enabling a better version of myself along with a  new way of approaching my career. Since working with Shane, I have been promoted to a position I’ve always wanted, my team has won an international award and my time at work feels more rewarding and productive in new ways.
