Premium Business Package

Building on the features of the Enhanced package, Premium adds a day of in-your-practice 1-2-1 coaching. Additional fees apply*. 

We will work together to build a day to suit your needs. My initial proposal would be to ensure you're comfortable with the 'tools of the trade'. 

When sleep-trained your listing on Snorer.me Signposting™ will be developed into a 'mini-website' (including your images and text), with top-3 local listing to promote you to prospects. 

The Premium package rounds out with invaluable professional network building efforts. Adrian will use his personal network (and other resources) to build you an offline referral network for the long-term.

* Pre-agreed travel and subsistence fees apply.

“I’d highly recommend Adrian Zacher and the Snorer.training course. His course is efficient and very clear. As a dentist, I have many patients and a surprisingly high demand for treatment of snoring. It was very useful for me to begin sharing information on snoring, and to gain confidence in starting treatment.”
