Dave Lakin Ready to Help Community Grow as an ActionCOACH Business Coach

Navy veteran uses experience and skills to help Huntsville, Alabama Businesses

April 15, 2014

LAS VEGAS – With a strong military background, Dave Lakin has always been one to give back to his community. But after moving to Huntsville, Alabama in 2008, he knew he had to find a direct way to help his community grow and prosper. After conducting due diligence on a number of opportunities, he found that ActionCOACH gave him the best chance to make a huge, positive impact.

“I was feeling that my job had little purpose and impact.  I wanted my work to matter and for my sons to have an example to follow that encouraged concern for community and included improving the lives of people we might otherwise never have known,” Lakin said.  “Being an ActionCOACH allows me to provide for my family while participating in the growth and improvement of my community.  I will provide a great example for my sons, give back some of the good fortune I've experienced in my life and become an actively participating member of society.” 

 ActionCOACH is the world’s leader in business and executive coaching.  Brad Sugars, Chairman and Founder of ActionCOACH started the company in 1993, when 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.

Over the course of his 24 year career in the Navy, Lakin developed a lot of experience as a troubleshooter, manager and leader. The straight forward approach to problem solving along with his knowledge of systems and team building and leadership background make him a valuable resource to businesses throughout his territory.

Lakin is an ambassador member of both the City of Madison Chamber of Commerce and the Huntsville/Madison County Chamber of Commerce.  He also sits on the Huntsville/Madison County Chamber of Commerce Small Business Council and is a mentor coordinator with Business Networks International (BNI).

As an ActionCOACH, Lakin is a franchise owner with his office located in Hunstville, Alabama, covering a 60-mile radius around the city in Northern Alabama. 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. 

“I am excited to become part of the AC organization and to bring the AC tools and experience to North Alabama, but, more importantly, I'm excited to start this next chapter in my life and to be able to help so many other businesses to grow and thrive,” Lakin said. 

ActionCOACH is the world’s number one business coaching and executive coaching firm, with more than 1,000 offices in more than 50 countries, coaching more than 15,000 businesses every week. To learn more, go to actioncoach.com.
