"In 6 months, our turnover had increased by 33%. Working with John has completely transformed our business.
Whilst he has enabled us to analyse and take steps to really drive the business, the impact has not just been on the business. We now have time to step back and evaluate our personal goals too.
Take the plunge – it is the best thing that has happened to us and we’d recommend it to anyone!"Luke Drewery & Pete Hewes, Owners, Know Media
"Working with ActionCOACH has turned me from being ‘someone who owns a coffee shop’ into an ‘Award winning business owner’.Nic Till, Owner, Riverhead Coffee
John helped me to see that through implementing systems and procedures and getting the right team behind me, I can confidently work on my business instead of in it."
"Before working with John, my business lacked direction and goals. With John’s advice and support, we have smashed our targets and now have aspirational goals in place.Simon Jeffrey, MD, Techie Monkey Computer Recycling Ltd
We have a future and financial security now!"
"When John first engaged with me, I backed off but quickly learned that he knew what he was talking about and made sense. He holds me to account and sets me weekly challenges which then impacts on the business. He has made me want to develop myself personally and this has impacted both the business and my life. He is a really great guy and working with him has surpassed all expectations."Thomas Perks, Director, Ground Support Services Ltd
"My first workshop with John inspired me to think bigger, and think about what could be. Talking through my business progress with John made me realise I was doing better than I thought, giving me the confidence to apply for the Hull & Humber Chamber of Commerce New Business Award 2019, of which I was thrilled to be a finalist. I am now taking part in the 90 day planning workshops which have been helping me develop as a business and plan the future growth of Hats & Tiaras."Isabel Wallis, Business Owner, Hats & Tiaras
"The importance of setting goalsNicky Thomas, MD, The Growth Community
Thank you so much for your support with planning. I thoroughly enjoyed it and found it incredibly useful. Getting a few goals down in that level of detail feels really empowering and a lot more real now! I will definitely be recommending this session to my members."
"Working with John and ActionCOACH has been a great learning experience, helping to improve our business systems, strategy and management. John always knows the right questions to ask in order to help you get the best out of yourself. He's got a great way of looking at problems and working with you to help you find the right solution. He pushes you to think bigger and further than you might otherwise do alone."Liam O'Leary, MD, Laser Red
"I've attended both the face to face and on-line 90 day planning sessions and both have their advantages. At the recent on-line session we had a small group and were able to bounce ideas off each other. It made me think about my business and how I can grow it rather than just surviving through this difficult time. It changed my way of thinking and my biggest learning was about the 5 ways numbers and what a difference an increase of just 10% can make to a business."Pippa Mell, Owner, Diamond Office Support
