/24-7PressRelease/ - LAS VEGAS, NV, July 25, 2008 - Master Licensee Paul Fagan has named David Forrester as an ActionCOACH in Ireland.
Forrester will be practicing from the semi rural location in County Louth, Ireland.
The main catchment area will be County Louth (with two substantial towns - Drogheda and Dundalk) and County Monaghan.
A Chartered Accountant, Forrester has amassed a wealth of experience at Board level within retail, manufacturing and service industries ranging from a small start-up company to a large multinational corporation.
"As Executive Director, I played a key role in the expansion of a furniture retail group into the largest company of its kind in Scotland by tripling the company in size over an eighteen-month period through internal growth," he said.
At his last appointment, Forrester was instrumental in building the company from break-even point into a highly profitable one with a solid platform for continued future development.
Forrester has had the opportunity to work with a diverse range of industries as well as with companies of all sizes. Despite being a qualified Chartered Accountant, he does not believe in confining himself to just one area of business.
"I enjoy the interface with all disciplines of business and during my entire working life, I purposefully engaged in various operations in both big and small organizations in order to build extensive experience and skills in all aspects of operating a business," he said.
Forrester has a natural inclination toward coaching.
"I have always been conscious of ensuring my colleagues understood why certain actions and decisions were being made, even in what may appear to have been the simplest of things. This is coaching at its simplest, most basic form and comes naturally to me," he said.
Forrester was impressed by ActionCOACH.
"ActionCOACH is a highly professional and focused organization, confident of what it has to offer its clients and the business community. Paul Fagan's ActionCOACH team in Ireland is representative of this success," he said.
Forrester considers coaching to be much more than a business opportunity.
"Business coaching is a passion for me, a way of life. Through ActionCOACH, I have now found the medium to carry out this vocation in order to help other business owners rekindle their passion for their respective ventures," he said.
