Hear the stories behind some ActionCOACH clients' results.
Advanced Maintenance UK Ltd
By the time Frank Cleary met ActionCOACH at a seminar two years ago, his business had been operating for 10 years, it had grown and was successful - but Frank didn’t feel in control of it. After working with ActionCoach to develop a KPI system, the business is now twice as busy but Frank has more hours in the day to think about the business and plan.
Since Frank began using an ActionCOACH profits have doubled and turnover has risen from £800,000 to £2,000,000.“Yet I have never felt more in control,” concludes Frank.
Textile Business Case Study
ActionCOACH worked with Pakotex on strategic planning, marketing and sales techniques. After lots of planning the owner realised that the business needed to change. The business coach gave Rob the spark of the idea but it was his own ‘eureka moment’ when he thought “Yes I can do this!”. Coaching has given Rob the confidence to take this step and develop the new business.
Kiln Flame Systems Case Study
ActionCOACH helped Kiln Flame Systems take the next step to become a very profitable business with a £1.5 million turnover, working with some of the leading international companies in pulp & paper, lime and alumina industries. After ActionCOACH came on board, turnover grew by 75% and actual profit trebled, by adding structure to the business and improving technical and marketing development.
Academia Case Study
Mike Bacon turned to ActionCOACH to help him fast-track his business. Academia supplies well-known software brands and IT hardware to academic establishments. Formed in 2003, by 2009 it was a substantial business, turning over £5million, but Mike wanted to accelerate its growth. "I was ambitious but I knew that growing a company quickly can present some major challenges, and I hadn’t run a big business before.".
AsOne Case Study
AsOne Design had been trading for 10 years and grown to a company of six employees but then seemed to stagnate. After working with ActionCOACH for just over a year turnover grew 173% to £260k and profit was up 285%. The owners are no longer working 50 hour weeks and are taking more holidays than ever before.
Cloud 9.0 Case Study
Cloud 9.0 (formerly Whichonetobuy) supports businesses with their IT infrastructure. It was started by Paul Myler and has been in operation for over seven years. They pride themselves on taking a holistic view and making disparate technologies work seamlessly together. Over the last three years the business has changed slightly and moved into providing innovative cloud based services. This has led to new challenges and Paul is constantly looking for ways to grow his business.
Sunrise Medical Case Study
Sunrise Medical manufacture and supply mobility devices such as wheelchairs and mobility scooters as well as many other homecare products. They have been in operation since 1985 and have global sales of approximately £300 million. However, despite providing a great range of own brand and third party products they had begun to see a lack of growth.
Polythene UK Case Study
James Woollard, managing director of Polythene UK, believes that business owners, like sportsmen, should have coaches. “Even if you’re good, there’s always room for improvement. Even Manchester United has a coach. Why should an entrepreneur be any different?”
James took over the reins of Polythene UK, the Witney-based polythene broker, in July 2007 and quickly saw its potential. “I’ve been in the packaging industry all my working life. I could see it had the right ingredients but I also knew I didn’t have all the answers myself. I’d need a coach if I was going to really make this business take off.”
