Andrew Laurie is the Newest Business Coach for ActionCOACH

Andrew Laurie was in the process of setting up his own business when he found out about ActionCOACH.

Las Vegas, NV --( Andrew Laurie had been the Managing Director for a travel distribution company in the U.K. for several years, having begun as Project Director, when he contemplated starting his own business. He had had several successes while serving as Managing Director – he built the company into a billion pound company, successfully turned around a 150 million pound retail business, and designed and led successful personal leadership development programs, including with Major Corporations and Youth Leadership Groups.

But Laurie wanted a change of pace. He wanted a business of his own that he could start from the ground up.

While reading "Dynamic Business," an Australian business magazine, he saw an article about ActionCOACH, and looked into the company.

"What impressed me about ActionCOACH was its ability to make sound business principles and practices very accessible to clients," Laurie said. "ActionCOACH seems to have very effectively translated materials and concepts which are often overcomplicated by people into a simplified structure, which is both easier to understand and more effective to implement."

The structure and the success of the ActionCOACH franchisees is what ultimately persuaded Laurie to start his own ActionCOACH firm. "ActionCOACH appealed to me because I liked the support of a successful network and the franchisor, as well as the systems with which to accelerate the growth of my business into a self-sustaining one," Laurie said.

"My longtime interest is in assisting others to realize their potential," he added. "I also had a desire to change my lifestyle and spend more time with my family and more time pursuing personal interests. Those are other reasons at the heart of my decision to start my own business."

Laurie believes the skills he's gained in his past positions will help him help his clients; he has experience in a variety of business activities, including coaching – as an experienced business manager, he coached and mentored many people throughout his career.

"From receiving a leading international MBA to my experience in various Managing Director roles, I have both training and extensive hands-on experience with most business functions," he said. "In addition, I have always enjoyed coaching as a manager, and enjoy observing the positive developments that follow with people."

Laurie is most excited to start working with people and help them realize their personal potential as well as their business' potential.

ActionCOACH is the world's number one business coaching and executive coaching firm, with more than 1,000 offices in 26 countries.
