The evening of 16th May saw the ActionCOACH Solent team celebrating their 10 year anniversary. A superb reception hosted by Keats Restaurant, Ampfield was enjoyed by members of the local business community who have benefited from ActionCOACH Solent’s business coaching over the last 10 years. Their very first client, Steve Orridge Managing Director of Minuteman Press Southampton, attended the reception and said of Kevin and his team, “you’ve taught me how to delegate, which has transformed my business and my life – I can now take a holiday!”
Manging Director Kevin Stansfield thanked everyone for their continued support of ActionCOACH Solent, saying how proud he was to see representatives of so many businesses return to celebrate the firm’s 10th anniversary. He said, “we’ve had the pleasure of coaching 263 businesses over the past 10 years, and we’re proud of the success we, and you, continue to have.”
Businesses from a wide range of sectors were represented on the night; from an ex-Marine running the Local Bookkeeping Company with plans to open more branches and employ more staff, to Double H Nurseries Ltd about to set up their first independent stand at the Chelsea Flower Show, and with a clear plan to increase their turnover.
Everyone shared their successes and wins on the night with the winner of the “BIG Win of the Month” trophy being awarded to Chris Stubbings of Autobulbs Direct, who had a special thanks for ActionCOACH: “you’ve enabled me to achieve financial freedom, my children can grow the business while I enjoy retirement. If it wasn’t for ActionCOACH, we wouldn’t be where we are today. Thank you for what you’ve done for my business and for us as human beings.”
Kevin reiterated this by reminding everyone to “run your business to create the life you want.”
