/24-7PressRelease/ - LAS VEGAS, NV, May 01, 2008 - Ian Christelow, ActionCOACH Master Licensee has named Ian Hargreaves as the newest ActionCOACH in Leeds.
A desire to run his own business, using the broad business skills he has acquired over the years to benefit small-to-medium-sized businesses, led Hargreaves to become an ActionCOACH.
A quick Google search for business coach directed him to ActionCOACH. "I chose this company above the other 'brands"' out there simply because it is the world's number one business coaching firm," he said.
Prior to becoming an ActionCOACH, Hargreaves was the managing director of three small businesses.
He took a 33million pound sector of a global plc to 49 million in just over two years.
"I created a 'brand' for my most recent business, which allowed us to demand higher value in a very commodity-driven market simply by positioning and selling well.
Hargreaves has led significant changes within every business with which he has been involved.
"I have vast experience of getting people to look at things from a different perspective and to implement new ideas. In essence this is a large part of what a coach does," he said.
Hargreaves is eager to help his clients in changing their lives for the better and improve their financial rewards.
Hargreaves is working on an ad hoc basis with a local college helping 16-18 year-olds prepare for the world of commerce.
"I have recently moved to Leeds and am also on the lookout for a position with a non-profit organization where I can offer my commercial skills - again hopefully supporting teenagers," he said.
He is positive about his new role as an ActionCOACH and has joined two networking groups and the local Chamber of Commerce.
ActionCOACH is the world's number one business coaching firm, with more than 1,000 offices in 26 countries. To learn more, go to actioncoach.com.
