November 09, 2011 // Franchising.com // LAS VEGAS – Sometimes people who’ve had success in one field need to make a change in order to live the life they truly desire. As an engineer, Hugh Bowman was tremendously successful, but his career wasn’t providing him with the time and freedom he and his family needed.
While looking for his next great opportunity he came across ActionCOACH and decided that being a part of the company was just what he had been looking for.
ActionCOACH is the world’s leader in business and executive coaching. When Brad Sugars, Chairman and Founder, started the company in 1993, when the concept of business coaching was still in its infancy. ActionCOACH specializes in coaching small to medium sized businesses as well as executive teams and group coaching.
“As an engineer, my career required a large amount of travel. I wanted to move more toward the business side in my career. As an engineer, I knew my first priority was always going to be in that role, so it was time for a change” Bowman said. “When I looked at my home town of Geelong, I realized there were about 15,000 businesses in the area and not one ActionCOACH. I knew I found a great fit for my talents and my community.”
Over the course of his career, among other accomplishments, Bowman has worked to reduce costs in company infrastructure and managed factory expansions in various industries, including the food industry. Now he’s prepared to take that experience to the next level with ActionCOACH.
“Most of my career has been spent working with small companies, including owning my own businesses,” Bowman said. “I understand all the forces behind the many competing roles of the business owner and with the resources and systems of ActionCOACH, I know I have the ability to help businesses reach their potential.”
Bowman is a franchise owner based out of Geelong, Victoria. He began his journey as an ActionCOACH Business Coach in Las Vegas, Nevada where the ActionCOACH Global Office is located. Here he spent 10 days training with other new firm owners and business coaches 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.
ActionCOACH is the world’s number one business coaching and executive coaching firm, with more than 1,000 offices in 39 countries. To learn more, go to actioncoach.com.
