Gold Coast, Australia, February 26, 2009 --(PR.com)-- ActionCOACH, the world's number one business and executive coaching firm, hosted its Asia Pacific Conference at the Gold Coast International Hotel; this high-profile event culminated in an Awards Dinner to honor the company's highest performers in the region.
The ActionCOACH business coaching firm owned by Steve Kay and Simon Harris in Australia was selected to receive the company's "Firm of the Year" award.
"We only win in what we do by helping our clients achieve results in their businesses and personal lives," co-owner of the firm, Simon Harris said. "This award is truly a reflection of the great work our team does with business owners. Small business is tough; at our ActionCOACH firm, we like to think we can make it somewhat easier."
ActionCOACH Business Coaches use their extensive knowledge and experience combined with ActionCOACH's tested and proven systems, tools and strategies to bring great results to the owners of small and medium sized businesses as well as corporate executives.
The Firm model has proved to be a highly successful business model within the ActionCOACH system that leverages the collective strengths of its team members to coach the owners of small-to-medium sized businesses.
Harris and Kay's firm has been in the "Top Firms" list for four years now and represents a highly skilled team of professionals.
"This team of brilliant coaches has been able to consistently show great results in multiple areas and that's quite a feat," ActionCOACH founder and CEO Brad Sugars said as he presented them with this award. "While each ActionCOACH has his or her own clients, they can also leverage the diverse backgrounds and talents of other ActionCOACH Business Coaches around the world to better serve their clients - this is where our strength and success lies."
Harris and Kay believe that 2009 will be another stellar year for their business coaching firm.
"We have strong alliances in place, a motivated team and great clients. We hope to be able to top last year's efforts in what some might consider a tough market," Harris said. "At the end of the day, people are still buying; the economy is still sound. We have just hit a flat spot, and now - more than ever - business owners need that edge to make sure they not only survive but prosper in these times. This is where the power of a great coach comes in."
When Sugars started the company 15 years ago, business coaching was a new and under-developed business category. Today, ActionCOACH is the world's leading business coaching firm and the industry is also one of the fastest growing, second only to IT in terms of growth.
ActionCOACH is the world's number one business coaching and executive coaching franchise, with more than 1,000 offices in 26 countries.
