Testimonials


 
Here’s how just some of our clients – all local business owners – have profited from working with Alan Brighton and ActionCOACH


“The structure and confidence that you and the coaching programme have provided have given me the platform to help me grow my business by 117% in just over 12 months from an already healthy base. Next year’s target is to grow by another 78%, I’m really looking forward to it and we’re already ahead of forecast.”

Piero de Marchis – Owner – De Marchis Sergison Ltd – Horton

“Our customer base has more than doubled since this time last year. The team are much happier. Through our monthly board and team meetings we now have much more input, clarity and control.

Here’s looking forward to a great 2007. January has already been fantastic.”

Peter Collins – Director – Cablelynx – Northampton

“We increased our turnover by 31% in the first year.”

Steve Hill – Partner – Birch Stone – Kettering

“The materials Action have provided have been excellent, and through focus on my goals, and testing and measuring, we’ve improved the average value sale by 16% in a tough market, profits are up significantly, and cashflow is better than it has been for a very long time.

This has certainly been one of the best investments I’ve made in business.”

Julien Tur – Owner – Ace Gearboxes Ltd. – Northampton
“Our new sales system gets a very positive response from our customers, and their feedback is super – and our Yellow Pages ad is working now. And more importantly I’ve been able to increase prices!”

Martin Wrightman – Owner – Wrightmans Construction Ltd. – Kettering

“We’ve moved forward and increased margins despite intense new local competition. And we’ve just had our record trading month, despite difficult conditions in the high street.”

Philip Yau – Partner – Janson Hong – Peterborough

“We’ve had a great fast track introduction to sales and marketing that’s helped us to successfully launch our new business.”

Mick Brimley – Managing director – T R Lawman Ltd. – Rushden

“We spoke with a number of Alan’s clients who were doing very well as a result of working with Action – of course this is very reassuring.”

Patcharee Shaweewan –Partner – The Brewery Tap – Peterborough

“Before I met you I was close to quitting,. Now I’ve just had my best month ever, and I’ve got more work than I know how to handle.”

Pete Brown – Owner – Beck Studios – Wellingborough

Here’s what local business owners say about working with Alan Brighton and ActionCOACH

“I’ve never had it so easy, time wise – in three months I’ve saved over 70% of my time, and I can now focus on the areas that create real value. I’ve got much more clarity, it’s helped me to make a quick assessment of intentions and make better judgements. Plus it’s great to have someone to discuss the issues.”

Neil Cutler – Owner – LineaPro – Brackley

“I think you did a marvellous job with me, when we first started I was a bit sceptical, you did wonders, I was expecting something a bit more stiff upper lip. Your friendly, informal approach is probably the only way to have got all this information across to me.”

John Lancaster – The Computer Doctors Ltd – Northampton

“We really wanted to thank you for all your help with the Action programme. We are now much more focused on where we are taking our business. We’ve got some great foundations in place and we now have a clear vision on where we’re going and how we can achieve it.”

Peter Collins – Director – Cablelynx – Northampton

“Coaching has certainly been an interesting journey. We’ve had our challenges but I’ve saved a fortune in paracetamol by working with you.

I’ve got more home life, improved profits, and a much better understanding of business. It’s been very enjoyable (most of the time!) seeing our business grow and the team develop with it. I’m totally confident that we’ve got a great future ahead of us.”

Steve Hill – Partner – Birch Stone – Kettering

“I’m passionate and confident about where my business is going again, we’ve got a structured plan that gets me out of bed almost every morning raring to go and see how we can be even more successful. My wife has got a new lease of life about the business and loves the new Paul Smith.”

Paul Smith – Managing Director – Global Rebar Services – Peterborough

“As you know I was pretty cynical about the whole thing originally, but having “dived in” I’ve got a lot from working with you. As you know I’m now ready to step right back and let this business run itself more while I look for the next business to add on.

I’ve learned to look at many things from a different angle, and I’ve been able to use that to move forward – identifying possibilities and areas of potential. We’re systemising the business now and I can clearly see the benefits. All this has been different and almost all of it has been enjoyable!

I’d strongly recommend you Alan to anyone who wants to move their business forward.”

Martin Wrightman – Owner – Wrightmans Construction Ltd. – Kettering

“It has given me confidence, and a much broader knowledge of business and people behaviour. I’ve now got a sense of direction and have become a stronger leader. You are always positive and reliable, you persevere when you have to, and it gives me a strong sense of security to know that someone is working alongside me on my business.

This has certainly been one of the best investments I’ve made in business.”

Julien Tur- Owner – Ace Gearboxes Ltd. – Northampton

“It’s been fun – and we’ve learned a lot about a wide range of subjects. I’ve been in business for over forty years – I wish I’d had the chance to do all of this thirty years ago, I’d have successfully retired long before now. Thanks again for all of your encouragement and the constant positive attitude.”

Mick Brimley – Managing director – T R Lawman Ltd. – Rushden

“Coaching has enabled me to focus on the direction that I want to take the business in. Over the last year I’ve learned two key things. Number one is positioning – it’s listening and interacting with the staff to keep them focused on producing results, which in turn produces more profits. Number two is Action’s five ways marketing model – it just enables you to organise and grow your business in a functional and profitable manner. And just one more – and most importantly, I’ve learned to work on the business and not in it, and that’s been the biggest gain. This is after being in business for 32 years on my own account.”

Alistair Brown – Managing director – Peterborough Grass Machinery Ltd.

“Brett and I have a got a much greater understanding now of what should be happening in our business, where we’ve been going wrong, and what we need to do to put it right. The programme’s given us the practical tools to start changing things, so we’ll have more time and profits in the future. I know now that time’s the more important of the two!

Alan, we’ve had a good time, we’ve had fun and a good laugh, the other business owners were great, and you’re great fun as well. Having said that it’s made us put aside time to work on our business. Once we got there it was well worth the effort!”

Loretta Scaccia – Partner –The Clean Plate Club – Northampton

“As someone who has run their own business for almost thirty years, there can be a tendency to think that you either cannot or do not need to be coached but almost from the outset I realised that many tangible benefits are available providing of course that the recipient has the willingness to make changes.

Systems have been tightened up in all areas and the magic words test and measure are always close to our lips. Working on the team is another area which has been reviewed and significantly improved. They are referred to as the team, which is what they are, all working together and having fun to achieve mutual benefits.

On behalf of the team I would like to thank you for your help and say again how much better we all feel working with you. If you have any potential clients who might like me to demonstrate the benefits of your excellent coaching skills and the wealth of expertise offered by Action, please feel free to give them my telephone number.”

Barry Goodman – Owner – BED (Corby) Ltd

And here’s what they say about watching Alan in seminars and workshops

“The whole day reinforced how and why we are putting great structure into our business. I heard many positive comments about the speaker, that’s the best testimonial you can get.”

Paul Hook – Partner – East Restaurant and Bar – Peterborough

“Just wanted to thank you both for yesterday it really made me think about things. Really, really enjoyed myself, it’s been one of the best business associated events I’ve ever been on. I plan to recommend it to other business owners.”

Julia Watson- Owner – W17 Ltd. – Northampton

“We have begun to implement change but the event has catalysed this process. We spoke with a number of Alan’s clients who were doing very well as a result of working with Action – of course this is very reassuring.”

Patcharee Shaweewan –Partner – The Brewery Tap – Peterborough

“The event was inspirational. The presenters were really focused on helping people to succeed for their own benefit, and I love that support.”

Kevin Humphry – Owner – Charter Graphics – Lutterworth

“The main message I got from the event is that if you put your mind to something you can accomplish anything.”

Chris Cope – Robert Osborne Woodworking Machinery – Northampton

“The whole Action systems and processes are already very enhancing to our business, and I now fully understand how much the powerful 5 ways formula can help us make big improvements in our business. I brought my sales director with me, and it’s given him another new lease of life. There’s no way he’s not going to achieve his 90 day goals, he’s a man on a mission!”

Alistair Brown – Managing director – Peterborough Grass Machinery Ltd.

“We really picked up two key points. Time management – so where we should be concentrating our efforts, and how to prioritise. Then how much of an overall effect to my profit the Action marketing system can create. I also understand the importance of commitment, and we went through lots of practical exercises to make sure we commit!”

Shay Ginat – Director – Balagan Ltd. – Peterborough

“We really learned how important systemisation is to our business, and the interaction between the business owners is just super.”

David Jay – Director – CS2 – Northampton

“We got focus, inspiration and vision that we can actually do something very worthwhile. We also had the opportunity to speak with many other business owners that had a lot more experience in areas that we did not, particularly with marketing, and we felt we weren’t alone.

Even though I wasn’t a client the presenter had a very caring attitude towards me and my business. And he’s very persistent – but nicely so! This was our first experience of coaching, we have since realised that having someone to guide you can be invaluable.”

Anne Preece – Owner – Courtyard Bridalwear – Kettering

“Great to meet other business owners.”

John Barrett – Partner – The Shower Shop – Peterborough

“I know now where to spend my money rather than just spending it and hoping it will increase profits.”

Wayne Elliott – Owner – Riverside Flowers – Kettering

“Great way to learn to run your business better.”

Brett Smith – Partner – The Clean Plate Club – Northampton

“Many thanks for a very powerful day.”

Jon Boys – Prime Source

“I’ve worked a lot with Action and the day just acts as a very valuable refresher about what I need to do on a day by day basis. We have actually now done quite a lot of business with a chap who sat on our table.”

Steve Hill – Partner – Birch Stone – Kettering

“To cut a long story short we came away with a bag full if ideas and a big dose of enthusiasm about what we were going to with our business. The seminar was also pretty entertaining.”

Paul Smith – Managing Director – Global Rebar Services – Peterborough

Now Alan’s going to get shy – finally here’s what his clients say about him personally

“I don’t consider Alan to be a business associate but more of a friend of our business. He has given us the inspiration to push ourselves and ultimately the business forward.”

Chris Cope – Owner – Robert Osborne Woodworking Machinery Ltd. – Northampton

“Alan is genuine and sincere, he wants to see businesses he is involved with succeed for their own benefit.”

Kevin Humphry – Owner – Charter Graphics – Lutterworth

“Alan is a great guy, he listens, he has very good ideas and is very personable.”

Paul Hook – Partner – East Restaurant and Bar- Peterborough

“Alan is a very good listener, we feel we can trust him to look after us and it is comforting to have him there to guide us confidentially in the right direction.”

Patcharee Shaweewan –Partner – The Brewery Tap – Peterborough

“Firstly I must say it is a pleasure working with you Alan and I know Ben feels the same way. Somehow you always manage to smile which means we are usually on the same path, but, on the odd occasion when we aren’t your smile and infectious enthusiasm ensures that we soon get back on track.”

Barry Goodman – Owner – BED (Corby) Ltd

“I have a lot of respect for Alan, he is a fabulous guy with a lot of integrity.”

Steve Hill – Partner – Birch Stone – Kettering

“Alan is very skilful dealing with different people. He is able to take a group of people who share very different views and finds a way through them in order to get a result.”

David Jay – Director – CS2 – Northampton

“Alan is a good sounding board, and it’s important to us as generally people in business can be fairly strong and sometimes they need strong guidance! He has a unique way of communicating, and his easy going non-confrontational approach really gets the best out of our characters.”

Bryan Connellan – Managing director – Henderson Connellan – Kettering

“Alan has a way with words that I have never come across before. One of the things that Alan has taught me more than anything is how to get messages across to my staff.”

Alistair Brown – Managing director – Peterborough Grass Machinery Ltd.

“I’m not actually being coached directly by Alan but my boss and his partner are. They have been coached for about 6 weeks now and each time they come back from coaching you can guarantee my workload will increase. At first my plan was to throttle Alan! But since I have been to the planning day I have realised how important these pieces of work are in the long term strategy. It gave me great clarity and also a vision for the future. Alan is very focused, and he’s polite and respectable too!”

Stuart Wright – General manager – Brewery Tap – Peterborough

“Alan is persistent but nicely so. Even though I wasn’t a client Alan had a very caring attitude towards me and my business. Alan is very honest and straight forward and I most definitely trust him. He has great integrity and honour.”

Anne Preece – Owner – Courtyard Bridalwear – Kettering

“Alan really makes me think. Many times he has stumped me and made me really rack my brains. The questions he asked me totally changed the way I was thinking at that particular moment. He takes me out of my comfort zone and made me really think about the question before I answer it.”

Wayne Elliott – Owner – Riverside Flowers – Kettering

“The Action programme opened my eyes to all aspects of running my business …….. it gave me my life back!”
