Smith is a coach who is ready to change lives and businesses throughout Edinburgh

April 23, 2014

LAS VEGAS – Working in the corporate world can be rewarding, but it can also be taxing on one’s family life. That was the case with Alan Smith. After 18 years in the food and drink industry and reaching a role in which he spent half the week away from his family, Smith knew he had to find a career in which he could balance his success with important time spent with his wife and kids. After attending a free seminar and meeting ActionCOACH Ian Christelow, Smith knew he had found the right avenue to restore balance to his life while helping his community grow.

“The diversity of the role of being an ActionCOACH is massively appealing because, ultimately, we are helping to change lives,” Smith said. “The fact that, in my previous role, I was spending three nights per week away from home for the past five years made creating a business right on my doorstep that can helps others, very appealing.”

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.

Smith spent 18 years in the food and drink industry and in that time he was so skilled at people management that nobody ever left a team he managed. Those skills, along with the powerful training an ActionCOACH goes through make him a perfect candidate to help businesses throughout his region.

Smith is a Business Coach based in Edinburgh, Scotland. He began her 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.
