August 01, 2011 // Franchising.com // ActionCOACH held its quarterly ActionAWARDS ceremony recognizing the growth and success of 10 San Diego-based businesses.
Among the coveted award winners was Smart Design Commercial Interiors, which increased its revenue by 376% and profit by 425% over the previous quarter.
The recognition pleased Smart Design owner Manda Wallbridge.
"After working with San Diego ActionCOACH Karie Kaufmann as my Business Coach for the last two years, I've gone from my business completely controlling me, to feeling confident that I know what my goals are and what needs to be done next to achieve them," she said.
ActionCOACH's ActionAWARDS recognizes clients for outstanding results in the previous quarter based on a number of metrics including: greatest percentage increase in the areas of lead generation; conversion rate; average dollar sale; increases in repeat business; increases in both revenue and profit, as well as improvement in the areas of financial mastery, operational efficiency and team development.
In all, ten ActionCOACH clients received awards for significant growth and improvements.
Two-time ActionAWARD winner The Wild Thyme Company Catering & Events, was recognized for increasing its gross profit margin by 15% over the same period last year.
Quiring & Associates and Stephanie San Antonio of Keith Eck Financial were among the first-time recipients to receive awards.
"The ActionAWARDS have become quite the friendly competition, and it's great to see the business owners we work with striving to win, while celebrating each other's successes," ActionCOACH Business Coach Karie Kaufmann said.
"Over thirty nominations were made in all, which shows the tremendous growth ActionCOACH clients are experiencing in all areas of business."
