December 17, 2012 // Franchising.com // Las Vegas- After 30 years in corporate life, Bert Weenink was looking for a challenge where he could apply his knowledge, work experience and personal values in a manner that would positively impact the people he touches, and as the newest ActionCOACH Business Coach in South Africa, he has found just that.
“I believe that as an ActionCOACH Business Coach I have the ability to transform the businesses I work with and, therefore, all of South Africa, into a better place for all, one business at a time,” Weenink said.
ActionCOACH is the world’s leader in business and executive coaching. When Brad Sugars, Chairman and Founder, started the company in 1993, the concept of business coaching was still in its infancy. 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 sized businesses as well as executive teams and group coaching.
“During my career I gained invaluable experience in running businesses and understanding how they function from a technical, managerial and entrepreneurial perspective,” Weenink said, “As a manager accountable for day-to-day operations I fully understand the different roles business owners have to play and I am well equipped to guide them on their individual and business growth paths.”
Weenink 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.
His office is based in Kempton Park and he will be practicing in the Ekurhuleni Metro Pole in Gauteng. From there he will help businesses throughout the region build profitability and stability backed by the ActionCOACH system.
ActionCOACH is the world’s number one business coaching and executive coaching firm, with more than 1,000 offices in more than 45 countries, coaching more than 15,000 businesses every week.
