ActionCOACH has become part of an important northern initiative to boost the business profile of the region.
ActionCOACH has joined an important government initiative, the Northern Powerhouse, to help promote the north of England as an important business destination. The business coaching franchise now has 43 franchisees operating in the region, as well as its large sales office in Sheffield. It’s keen to help with the government’s plan to improve opportunities and the quality of life for northern business owners, as well as the economy for the general public.
Speaking about the fantastic partnership, Ron Maycock, Head of ActionCOACH’s Strategic Alliances, said:
“Our franchise partners based in the Northern Powerhouse region were pleased to hear our partnership had been approved. It’s their record of success with clients that helped to secure the partnership for us. The Northern Powerhouse will now support our events, generating awareness and credibility for all Action Coaches in the area. There’s also a plan to join the Midlands Engine, which works in exactly the same way but supports those in the Midlands. That will allow us to have even more franchise partners benefitting and offer our support and services to more people.”
Franchise partner Paul Limb, who operates in Egerton, announced the news to his local community when he met with Jake Berry MP, the Minister of State for the Northern Powerhouse. Speaking at the event, he said:
“By forming the partnership, we hope to increase awareness of life in the North and create momentum towards our objective of developing sustainable, high-performing businesses, which will in turn attract talent from all over the world to our region. The work our business coaches do, meets the Northern Powerhouse goals for the growth of the economy and we actively encourage business owners to get involved and make a difference.”
Jake Berry added:
“I am delighted to welcome ActionCOACH to our rapidly-growing Northern Powerhouse Partners Programme. With their commitment to supporting businesses and entrepreneurs across the Northern Powerhouse and throughout the UK to thrive, they are well placed to help us shine a spotlight on talent in the region and demonstrate what the North has to offer.”
ActionCOACH UK co-founder, Ian Christelow, expressed the whole network’s excitement at the new partnership.
“Creating this partnership is a great opportunity for growth of the whole network. It highlights our expertise and increases the exposure for franchise partners across the region. Through business re-education and creating abundance, we hope to pave the way for more businesses to get involved.”
