Las Vegas, NV, --(PR.com)-- Ashley Thomson gained recognition as one of the "Top 10" Business Coaches in the world when ActionCOACH, the world's number one business and executive coaching firm, recently released its list of the Top 100 coaches worldwide for the month of November.
Thomson has been helping the owners of small-and-medium sized businesses from his office in Victoria, Australia and has achieved the #9 ranking globally.
Based on their Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), which are based on monthly banking amounts, coaches are recognized each month for excellence in their business.
As soon as the list was announced, Thomson felt excited and honored in equal measure.
"I was thrilled to be recognized as one of the top 10 coaches at ActionCOACH," he said. "To be placed in the top 1% of such a highly talented group of people is indeed an honor."
Thomson believes 2009 is going to be an even bigger year for his business. Along with his team, he has already started working on several new businesses and is optimistic about kick starting the New Year in a big way.
Thomson views tremendous opportunity in the existing economic climate.
"The recent economic events have presented some opportunities for many of our existing clients and by shuffling around some of our target markets, we are now seeing some of this early work really starting to pay off," he said. "Our plans for 2009 include more events allowing clients to mix and share their knowledge while learning from others. Our experience in past has shown that when we get a positive, committed group of people in a room together, there are always plenty of new business opportunities and client referrals that arise."
"Ashley has always been a high achiever and his growth has been tremendous," ActionCOACH founder and CEO Brad Sugars said. "He can look in the eye of adversity and has clearly been able to use the economic downturn to his advantage."
The business coaching industry is the second fastest growing business categories worldwide, and ActionCOACH is the number one business and executive coaching firm in the world.
