Training Workshop, Coaching, Consulting Projects, Mastermind Group and tickets for Events
You warrant that all information you provide to us when either registering an account with us, or purchasing a Proverbial Door Training Workshop, Coaching Service, Consulting Project, joining the Mastermind Group, or an Event is true and accurate. It is your responsibility to ensure your information is updated regularly with any relevant changes.
No application for a Training Workshop, Coaching Service, Consulting Project or the Mastermind Group is accepted by us nor will tickets to Events proceed to purchase and, therefore, a contract will not be formed, until our site displays an acceptance confirmation message, or a signed contract is received and confirmed by The Proverbial Door.
We may refuse at our absolute discretion any application for a Training Workshop, Coaching Service, a Mastermind Group, or any ticket order for Events, for any reason.
You are responsible for all activities and payments that occur under your account with us.
Special requirements at the live Workshops
The Proverbial Door will make every effort to accommodate special requirements that have been notified in advance on the booking form.
Health and safety at live Workshops
You must comply with all health and safety rules and regulations and any other reasonable security requirements that apply at the premises at which the live Workshops are provided.
The Proverbial Door reserves the right to remove any delegate from a training course whose behaviour is deemed inappropriate by The Proverbial Door or its trainers. In these circumstances, The Proverbial Door will neither refund any fees nor reimburse any other costs.
The Proverbial Door does not warrant that the provision of any content online will always be available or be uninterrupted, timely or error free, that defects will be corrected or that such content is secure or free from bugs, viruses, errors and omissions.
Prices and Payments
Prices for the Workshop, Coaching Service, Consulting Project, Mastermind Group and tickets to Events are as quoted on the order pages when you place an order request on our site, or as quoted by one of our sales representatives.

In respect of the Mastermind Group, payments are made by you to us monthly or annually in advance depending on your membership, unless otherwise stated on the order pages when you place an order on our site. We take payments by continuous payment authority. If your payment details change, your card provider may provide us with updated card details. We may use these new details for your future quarterly payments for the Mastermind Group in order to help prevent any interruption to the service on our site. If you would prefer to opt out from this, please contact us on email@example.com.
In instances where, in our sole discretion, we have expressly offered you variable payment plans for a Training Workshop or the Mastermind Group and you do not make any payment to us by the due date, we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% a year above the base lending rate of HSBS Bank plc from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgement. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
Once you have received an acceptance confirmation message on our site, tickets for Events cannot be refunded, resold or exchanged. Refunds and exchanges for the face value of the ticket will only be offered by us in the Event of cancellation or rescheduling of an Event.
We reserve the right to make alterations to an Event program.
Some Events may have specific conditions of sale and these will be listed on the order pages for that Event on our site. It is your responsibility to check these pages before you purchase tickets.
The unauthorised use of cameras, audio and video equipment is not permitted at Events. Purchasing a ticket to an Event means you consent to all and any filming, photography and sound recording (which may include you as a member of the audience) and its use in commercial distribution without payment or copyright.
We reserve the right to refuse admission to an Event.
Our right to vary these terms
We may revise these terms from time to time (including to reflect any commercial changes and/or changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements).
If we have to revise these terms as they apply to your Training Workshop or the Mastermind Group, we will contact you to give you reasonable advance notice of these changes and let you know how to cancel if you are not happy with the changes.
Joining instructions including an outline of the Workshop days and venue details will be available prior to the course start date either via our website or through direct email communications. The Proverbial Door will not be held responsible for non-receipt of joining instructions and refunds will not be issued under such circumstances.
Cancellation of a live Workshop attendance
If you need to cancel your place on the live Workshop, you must notify The Proverbial Door via email more than 28 days before the start date. You will receive a full refund less an admin fee of 20% (plus VAT) of the total fee. If you cancel your place less than 28 days before the start date, you will not be entitled to a refund.
Substituting your live Workshop or Event place
If you need to substitute someone’s attendance to a Workshop, you must notify The Proverbial Door via email. If The Proverbial Door is notified more than 14 days before the start date there will be no charge. Any substitutions made less than 14 days before the start date will incur a £50 admin fee.
Transferring your place
If you, or someone you nominate, can no longer attend a Workshop you are entitled to transfer that booking onto the next Workshop that has availability. The transfer option only applies to those who are transferring to a different date for the same Workshop and the date must be specified at the time of the transfer. The transfer is free of charge if you notify The Proverbial Door via email more than 14 days before the start date.
Transfers made 5-14 days prior to a Workshop will be charged at 20% of the Workshop fee plus a £50 admin fee
Transfers made 0-13 days prior to a Workshop will be charged at 50% of the Workshop fee plus a £50 admin fee
Please note once you have transferred a booking you will not be entitled to a refund and you cannot transfer a nominated place more than once.
Changes and/or Cancellation by The Proverbial Door
Where circumstances dictate, The Proverbial Door reserves the right to alter published Workshop or Event programmes, fees, dates or venues without prior notice. In extreme circumstances, The Proverbial Door may be forced to cancel a Workshop or Event on 28 days’ notice. In that case a refund of the fee will be made but no compensation will be paid for any additional costs incurred (for example travel, accommodation etc). We therefore recommend that you refrain from incurring any costs of travel or accommodation until 28 days before the course, or otherwise obtain insurance for those costs.
If you fail to attend the Workshop or Event you are booked onto, without giving prior notice to The Proverbial Door, we will be unable to refund the fees or offer a transfer. For the Mastermind Group, attendance to the group Events are discretionary, however we strongly recommend that you make every effort to attend each session. Non-attendance to a Mastermind Group session will not entitle you to a refund or pro-rata refund. It is therefore your responsibility to attend each session.
Termination from the Mastermind Group
You are free to terminate your subscription at any point in your membership. We require 30 days advanced notice, in writing. If the end of your 30 day notice period is after the next scheduled payment date, you will be charged the full monthly fee.
Cancellation of the Mastermind Group
Once you have joined the Mastermind Group you have up to 14 days from the purchase date to cancel your subscription and receive a full refund, provided that you have not joined a Mastermind Group session. After the 14 days, or if you have joined a session, you will not be entitled to any refund. Subscriptions to the Mastermind Group are non-substitutional and non-transferable.
