June 24, 2008 // Franchising.com // - Master Licensee Neil Sinclair has named Clive Cosgrove as an ActionCOACH in the United Kingdom.
Based out of Manchester, he will be covering the north west of England as well as North Wales.
Prior to joining ActionCOACH, Cosgrove was the Credit and Risk Director for Five Arrows Commercial Finance Limited, a subsidiary of N.M Rothschild.
"During my 17 years spent in Commercial Finance, lending money and giving advice to over 400 SME's across a wide and varied range of business sectors, and with turnovers of up to $15 million per annum, I became conversant with many of the challenges facing not only the businesses but also business owners. In many instances innovative solutions were required," he said.
Having spent many years in the SME Financial Sector, Cosgrove acquired a wealth of experience and has a clear understanding of both the short and long-term issues facing SME's. This experience and understanding will be beneficial in his new role as an ActionCOACH Business Coach where he will be coaching SMEs and taking their businesses to the next level.
Cosgrove was very impressed by ActionCOACH. He felt that the company had a structured approach to advising and helping businesses and their owners grow and achieve their objectives.
"I was looking for a new challenge when ActionCOACH and I found each other. My own due diligence showed that this company has no equal. ActionCOACH has tried, measured and tested systems that work, as demonstrated on a daily basis with over 150,000 businesses currently getting great results from coaching. Becoming an ActionCOACH is the best investment I have made in myself and, besides providing me with enormous learning opportunities, it will also give me more time on the golf course and with my family," he said.
"ActionCOACH has a very professional support team and I believe that the training is second to none," he said.
An avid golfer, Cosgrove is a member of the Manchester Chamber of Commerce and the Federation of Small Businesses.
