ActionCOACH, The World’s Number 1 Business Coaching Team

There are already over 1,000 franchise partners worldwide developing extremely successful businesses for themselves and their clients. Our franchise partners build a rewarding business by helping other business owners succeed. If you are the type of person who finds a way to get things done, loves helping people and has a passion for learning, this is the fastest route to freedom and fulfilment that any franchise owner can enjoy. The awards back this up:

  1. RBS’s Award for the UK’s Best Mid-Priced Franchise has only been presented three times (2014-2016)… there has only been one winner: ActionCOACH.
  2. Probably of even more interest to you, only four franchises have achieved 5-Star Franchisee Satisfaction five times… ActionCOACH is one of those.

The franchise was launched in the UK in 2001 with small to medium business growth acting as a catalyst for expansion. Our franchise partners work with business owners to help them increase their profits, implement powerful systems and build a strong team so that they make more money without needing to work all hours under the sun.

All franchise partners attend an intensive 10-day induction training and 4 day UK MasterCLASS training, receive a library of resources and the ongoing support of their UK and global Action Support Teams through group coaching webinars, individual coaching calls, quarterly conferences, quarterly team meeting and training days, and an extensive global intranet system. The shared values and culture result in lots of teamwork between franchise partners locally and nationally and help is always at the end of the phone or on hand from the franchise network.

The entry level investment for the franchise is £27,000 plus working capital with guaranteed Returns on Investment available for the best candidates (just ask one of the UK Support Team for T’s & C’s). The biggest returns though are the personal “thank you” words and actions our franchise partners receive from their clients and the recognition they get for the difference they make in their local economy as business growth fuels more jobs, security and financial freedom for families.


In the last year, ActionCOACH UK received the ultimate testimony with three clients, having built a commercial, profitable enterprise that works without them, choosing to buy an ActionCOACH franchise to help other local business owners achieve their goals and dreams.

What attracted you to the ActionCOACH franchise opportunity?

There were three things that stood out for me when making my decision to join ActionCOACH. Firstly, the UK support team and their calendar of over 70 support days is world-class but then you add on the help that’s so forthcoming from over 180 franchise partners in the UK and I felt extremely comfortable in my decision. Secondly, ActionCOACH’s system is outstanding with over 3,500 strategies and tactics, guaranteed to make businesses successful, including your own. Finally, the earning potential is good with some franchise partners banking over £1million a year – even if I grow to a quarter of that, I’ll be happy.

What training and support is available?

The initial training was very intense but also an amazing experience. I learnt so much about myself – it’s was a massive eye opener. Ongoing, there is a multitude of training available to tap in to from both the Global and UK support teams. They broadcast at least three live webinars every week, the topics vary from getting new clients to coaching strategies to improve client success.

How was trading in the beginning and how is business today?

It was hard to start with as, like starting any business, you’re doing something completely new – you need to find your feet and work hard. It does pay off though and, if you follow the system and take up all the help and support, it becomes very lucrative.

What are your plans for the future?

I now plan to develop my business into a coaching firm, employing a team of coaches who will change the face of business ownership in Warwickshire. I want to play a part in helping local businesses escape today’s failure rates of four in five businesses not making it past five years of operation. Business owners deserve to enjoy work and life and so do the people they employ and the community surrounding them. I would also like to become a coach’s coach – every new franchise partner is given their own coach for free until they reach a good level of income. This is another fantastic level of support which I benefited from in the early days and I’d love to give back by helping new franchise partners.

How would you sum up your experience?

Joining ActionCOACH is 100% the best thing I have ever done. It’s a fantastic community who help each other continuously and I have made life-long friendships with other coaches and clients… they can’t get rid of me!
