Las Vegas, NV,--(PR.com)-- ActionCOACH, the world's number one business and executive coaching firm, hosted its annual European Regional Conference at London's Hilton Metropole Hotel. Due to an overwhelming interest in the ActionCOACH franchise, the company also hosted a highly successful Discovery Day with over 100 prospective franchisees in attendance.
Typically, Discovery Days are monthly events held at the company's Global Office in Las Vegas, Nevada, and are aimed at bringing prospective franchisees closer to the ActionCOACH franchise opportunity and meet with the team members to learn more about the company.
The London Discovery Day has proved to be the largest gathering of prospective ActionCOACH franchisees in the company's history.
"It is encouraging to see this type of response in the middle of the current economic crisis," Director of Franchise Sales & Marketing Jodie Shaw said. "To have a turnout of more than 100 people who are interested enough to make this trip from various parts of Europe speaks volumes about the financial viability of this opportunity."
While other companies are closing their doors, ActionCOACH is moving against the tide and actually experiencing robust growth in the middle of this recession. Earlier this year, the company recorded a 21% year-over year growth, and for the first time in the company's history, three Business Coaches banked Diamond level earnings in one month.
The company also showed a remarkable improvement in its Franchisee Satisfaction rankings – jumping to #17 in the Unites States. ActionCOACH enjoyed similar successes in many other awards and rankings – despite the recession.
Shaw, who will be traveling extensively this year to open new territories for the company, is excited about ActionCOACH's ambitious goal of expanding its reach to a total of 120 countries by the end of December 2012.
"We recently expanded to the Caribbean as well as Kenya, with many other new territories in the pipeline," Shaw said. "This validates the fact that while we do well in good economic times, we do even better during tough times."
ActionCOACH is the world's number one business coaching and executive coaching franchise, with more than 1,000 offices in 26 countries.
