You’d be forgiven for thinking that ActionCOACH been growing coaches in the back garden of their UK support office with the huge number of people choosing to own an ActionCOACH franchise in the last 12 months! In 2015 they welcomed 40 franchise partners to their winning team and momentum is still growing.

Not only is the network of over 100 franchise partners growing rapidly but they’re also celebrating success after success in local, national and international awards.

Staverton Park Hotel in Northamptonshire was the venue for this year’s ActionCOACH Franchise Partner Awards Ceremony. This annual black-tie awards event recognises the success of the coaches and the impact on the business owners they coach.

Best Client Results 2016 is awarded for the best client testimonial video or letter. The growing army of raving fan clients make it so much easier for franchise partners to grow their businesses – after all, who do you believe more the car sales person or your neighbour who bought one? This year’s regional winners:

  • West Midlands - Andy Hemming
  • Central Midlands - Mark Jennings
  • South West - Steve Gaskell
  • North East & Cumbria - Julie McLaughlin
  • North West - Paul Whitfield
  • East Anglia - Roger Pemberton
  • London - Gil Devlin
  • South East - Lucy Cameron
  • Yorkshire & Lincolnshire - Mandy Hildred
  • South Central - Rob Pickering

Suj Legha received UK Best Client Results 2016 and one of his clients, Gary McMillan from The Horizon Group, explained why:
"The service he provides not only changes the lives of the people he works with but also their families and work colleagues. When we started working with Suj less than 2 years ago we had no direction, no plan, no profits and wouldn’t have been able to ‘give the business away’. We had the business valued in March 2015… the business got valued at £4.5M!! That’s what you call a return on investment!! Thanks for everything."

Coach of the Year 2016 is awarded to the coach who has the best performing coaching business. This year’s regional winners:

  • Scotland: Tony Hoskins
  • North West: Paul Whitfield
  • South Central: Kevin Stansfield
  • West Midlands: Andy Hemming
  • South East: Marco Soares
  • Central Midlands: John Cottrell
  • South West: Rob Carter
  • East Anglia: Peter Boolkah

Two contenders, Pam Featherstone and Shweta Jhajharia, for UK Coach of Year 2016 simply could not be separated because of their amazing performance during 2015 when both surpassed £1 million in personal client income for the 12-month period, with the satisfaction of knowing their clients are by far in a way the biggest winners.

James Akin-Smith was awarded UK Best Growth Coach 2016 recognising his achievement of growing his business by the greatest proportion of any franchise partner during 2015:
"I started my ActionCOACH business on 1st February 2014 and had just seen Pam Featherstone win Rookie of the Year. I said that I wanted to take that trophy from her and exactly two years on that’s what I did! 2015 was a good year for client income but, more importantly, my clients are very happy and have been referring me to other business owners. It’s been an enjoyable year and my next target is to get into the global top 100 ActionCOACH list."

Gary Mullins & Steve Mullins received the UK Brand Ambassadors 2016 award for their efforts to grow the ActionCOACH brand. UK Co-founder of ActionCOACH, Julie Wagstaff explains:
"The father and son team had the foresight three years ago to invest their own time and money to bring the global founder of ActionCOACH, Brad Sugars, to their home town for a seminar to local business owners. The seminar was so popular that it was rolled out nationwide and it is down to Gary and Steve and their business partners in the venture, Kevin Stansfield & Colin Harding, that we have a sold out tour each year with Brad educating business owners and promoting our brand. Gary & Steve pipped Kevin & Colin to the post in the prestigious Brand Ambassadors award through also having the vision to pioneer the employee ActionCOACH business model in the UK, a model which is key to increasing ActionCOACH’s brand coverage."
