December 18, 2012 - Las Vegas - Geoffrey Fairhurst feels he has an obligation to coach and teach those around him and as an ActionCOACH Business Coach he has found the perfect way to meet that obligation while building the economic stability of his community.
“I am a firm believer in the philosophy of giving back, which includes developing and growing people and inspiring them to become better at what they do and how they interact with those around them,” Fairhurst said. “I joined ActionCOACH because I was looking for a change in lifestyle after more than 15 years in the corporate environment.”
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.
“ActionCOACH is a reliable, genuine and sincere organization with the vision, mission and purpose that I realized immediately aligned with what I wanted to do,” Fairhurst said.
Fairhurst 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.
“One of the most exciting things about being an ActionCOACH Business Coach is meeting people from all walks of life and helping them grow as business people, and outside of their business as well.”
Fairhurst’s office is based in Kempton Park, Johannesburg and he works with businesses in the Gauteng region. When he’s not coaching businesses, Fairhurst is a member of the Greater Boksburg Chamber of Commerce and, in his spare time, enjoys golfing with the members of the Kempton Park Golf Club and NOMADS Golf Club.
