What you will get as a certified Partner
Training & Certification
We’ll provide you with training through our online training program for you and your team to make sure that only the best, most capable businesses are able to call themselves Certified Partners.
When you’re out there selling, training & supporting your clients, you never feel alone. HOBA® Certified Partners get their own support email address & escalation phone number, so you’re never own your own.
As a ongoing partner & service provider, you will get a cut of ongoing subscription revenue from subscriptions you sell and support. The percentage increases as you have more business you bring us.
We provide you with training and support materials so you can quickly and easily start offering training, implementation and support services for your clients.

There are multiple ways you can generate additional revenue as a Certified Partner. First, you can go back to your existing clients and offer them the new services you are licensed to sell and deliver. You can utilise the tools we will provide you to attract new clients, even clients who have passed on your services in the past.
To simplify communication, you will have one primary point of contact on the HOBA TECH team, but this person will have access to anyone else who may need to be brought into the loop. In a practical sense, you’ll have access to anyone on the team who can help make your partnership with us a success.
Absolutely! Our goal is to take HOBA® international. We want HOBA TECH officers in every city in every country that will have us, but we need “boots on the ground” who are familiar with the territory. That said, right now all HOBA® materials are in English only, so if your market requires a different language, you will need to take on the translation work.
Our licence fee is a tiered structure, based on the number of consultants on or supporting the service delivery of the businesses transformation services. The increasing number of consultants, the incrementally decreasing fee per consultant decreases. This fee will cover the use of the HOBA® brand and other intellectual property, as well as the considerable time and investment to create and deploy the service deliver and client attraction resources you will receive as a Certified Partner. Complete the Registration Form below to learn more.
If your application is approved, you’ll take the Transformation Mastery course and exam to be a Agile Transformation Specialist. Next, you’ll gain access to our Partner Portal where you’ll learn to use the proprietary tools and resources you’ll receive as a partner, and enter your details that you would like to appear in the Certified Partner Directory.
The ideal Certified Partner should be a consultant or consultancy that is actively servicing medium to large businesses. You could be a business coach, independent consultant or a management consultancy, it doesn’t really matter. If you serve medium to large businesses and business or digital transformation touches some aspect of your service, then there’s a good change you’re a fit.
We haven’t set a limit at this time. Our main goal is to help as many small businesses as possible, and given that there are literally tens of millions of small businesses in the UK alone, we need all the help we can get.
The Certified Partner Program is not “area exclusive” at this time, nor are there plans to offer geographic exclusivity in the near future. The goal of this program is to serve as many small businesses as possible, and to do that we need A LOT of help. We also know that most of our Certified Partners will SPECIALISE, either in a particular niche (i.e. service companies, banking, government agencies etc.), or in a particular range of services (i.e. business analysis, business design, transformation implementation etc.). For this reason, it doesn’t make sense to restrict the number of Certified Partners in a specific geographic region. That may change over time, but for now our hope is that the Certified Partners will network, share ideas, and ideally send clients to one another based on each others area of specialisation.
Every business is different so it’s impossible to guarantee a specific revenue or ROI result. That said, we are aligned with the same goal of helping businesses transform and grow, so we will do everything we can to equip you with the tools and resources you need to grow your own practice so you can help as many businesses as possible. It is worth putting out that just one new client should easily cover the license fee required to participate in the program, so for active partners, achieving a positive ROI should be the minimum expected goal. But again… no guarantees. This is still your business, and it’s up to you to run and grow.
