June 14, 2011 // Franchising.com // LAS VEGAS – The nation of Curacao has a long and interesting economic history and today sits as one of the most diverse economies in the Caribbean. Despite its lack of size, Curacao's diversity has helped make it a strong economy, capable of incredible growth. And now to help that growth, Arthur Rosaria has become an ActionCOACH.
ActionCOACH is the world's leader in business and executive coaching. When Brad Sugars, Chairman and Founder, started the company in 1993, the field of business coaching was in its early stages. By franchising the company in 1997, Sugars helped business coaching become more mainstream turning it into the second fastest growing category behind Information Technology. ActionCOACH specializes in coaching small to medium size business as well as executive teams and group coaching.
For more than 20 years, Rosaria has been in the banking industry, so he has a full grasp of what businesses need to do to run profitably in the current economic environment. In this role, he's worked with businesses of every type and size, but he felt it was time to do something important for himself and his community.
"I've been looking to start my own business for a long time, but I didn't know what kind of business. When I came across ActionCOACH, it seemed like a perfect fit for my skills and my personality," Rosaria said.
Rosaria will be based out of Curacao, but once established he will expand his firm into the other islands of the former Netherlands Antilles, Aruba, Bonaire, St. Martin, Statia and Saba.
"I want to help business owners and corporations to improve their results massively. ActionCOACH provides me the team and proven concepts to do that I'm very excited to get started on this next step in my career."
Rosaria will be the President of the Rotary Club Willemstad as of July 1, 2011 and he was a board member for the Curacao Chamber of Commerce for five and a half years. He is also on the Board of Directors of ALIDE, the Latin America and Caribbean Association of Development Banks.
Rosaria is a franchise owner with his office located in Willemstad, Curacao and he will recruit top professionals in the Dutch Caribbean to join his firm. His Master Licensees are Janine Lie-A-Kwie and Arnout Druyvesteyn who are developing ActionCOACH on all islands in the Caribbean So far ActionCOACH has opened offices in Jamaica, Dominica, Barbados and Suriname.
Rosaria began his journey as an ActionCOACH in Las Vegas, Nevada where the ActionCOACH Global Office is located. Here he spent 10 days training with other new business coaches and franchise owners from around the world. They learned the ins and outs of ActionCOACH, how to run a business the ActionCOACH way, branding, systems and techniques, as well as how to apply their knowledge to any business and much more.
