Why did you begin working for ActionCOACH?

I have always had a passion for helping people to achieve their goals. Whether it has been nurturing sales talent to their full potential or working with businesses to put in systems to maximise efficiency; seeing the difference it is possible to make has been a huge reward.

With ActionCOACH I have the privilege of being able to help business owners in my local community to work fewer hours, get better results from their team, make more profits and achieve their goals. The ActionCOACH system is the best in the world and guaranteed to get results for every type of business.

Why do you love working for ActionCOACH?
Prior to ActionCOACH I worked as Business and Administration Manager for Coram Cambridgeshire Adoption and Cambridgeshire County Council’s adoption service for 7 years helping children find forever families. Giving back is important to me!

We want you to work fewer hours, have more family time, have more life, get better results from your business and your team, make more profits and achieve your goals. We believe your business should give you more life!

Tell us something about yourself…
I was brought up on the beautiful Island of Barra in the Outer Hebrides. It has a population of less than 1000 people and the only scheduled air service to land on a beach. It was here that I learned to be a professional highland dancer.

How I spend my spare time…
I love to make an extravagant cake – the more challenging the better! I teach cake sculpture in my free time and my cakes have featured on Holby City and in magazines.
