I have a strong track record of building consistently high growth, profitable businesses and business units in each of my roles in the last 20 years.
“I signed up for one of Mark’s ActionCOACH courses, 90 Day Planning GrowthCLUB which was held at Doncaster. The course was FULL of information which was explained in great detail, with plenty of opportunity to ask questions. The great thing about this course – which taught me how to set goals, plan towards them and not get sidetracked – is that the mix of new businesses and businesses that had been trading up to 10 years, made me realise that it doesn’t matter whether you’re new or not, everyone has something that they struggle with or need help with. The whole day was enjoyable, I’ve already put my 90 day plan into action and it’s working already (6 days since I attended the training!) I’m still buzzing with ideas, however, they’re now organised ideas! I definitely recommend Action Coach. Thanks Mark!” – Karen West – Garry West Hypnotherapy
