“Having someone who understands your business and your journey and is just as invested as you, is something that many business owners don’t realise they need”.
“I took the decision to start working with Billy at a stage in the business where a lot of work was coming in and we had been giving a good service but I wanted to give our growth a supercharge. We needed to create structure, processes and the correct environment to do this. Billy gave us the tools to go about this with a well-planned and targeted approach. With his support and guidance, we have identified new markets and services and laid out plans for the future.
In the last 6 months our turnover has doubled, we’ve taken on more staff and we are moving to larger premises.
Having someone who understands your business and your journey and is just as invested as you , is something that many business owners don’t realise they need.
Most of us, when starting a business are filled with ideas and lists of things to do or achieve and you’re constantly thinking about the business and ways to get more work or sell more. Making time to go through everything with a coach brings many rewards. It’s like having someone organise all the paperwork in your mind and coming back with everything in a neat folder.
I can’t recommend Billy and the team at ActionCOACH Cheltenham enough”.
We say: “How great is that idea that we can help sort the paperwork in your mind? And it’s true what Dave says about us being just as invested in our client’s success as they are. Whether that’s doubling your turnover, recruiting more team members and moving to bigger premises like Dave has done, we’re here to support and champion our clients all the way!
“We’re expanding so fast we have taken on 5 new members of staff and recently moved to a bigger premises”

“I can’t recommend Billy Smith and his team enough. There will be room in my business for them always”
Chani Martin, M&M Marketing and Merchandise
“For years now I’ve wondered about employing a business coach. I’ve met several. I’ve joined Facebook groups. Never took the plunge.
This year I’ve invested more into my business and myself than ever. And it’s been the best decision of my life.
If it’s something you’ve been thinking about on and off for a while. Stop thinking and start doing.
I can’t recommend Billy Smith and his team Kaley Hood and Anne Wall enough. There will be room in my business for them always”.

In the 6 months or so that Billy has been providing me with support I have gained the insight, tools and equipment I need to run my business in a more efficient way. From mindset to training, strategy to work-life balance, not only has Billy provided me with the breadth of his previous experience, he has also acted as a sounding board for my many and varied ideas and as a listener for any business issues that have occurred.

“I’m not a huge fan of business coaches – but Billy is different!”
Abi Howell, Truly Tailored Recruitment
Our client Abi from Truly Tailored Recruitment tells us how she’s changed her mind about business coaching since working with our Senior Coach, Billy Smith.
Billy is different; he listens!” says Owner and Managing Director, Abi Howell.
“He does not try to just tell you things – how to charge more, pivot, merger, position yourself for sale etc … Billy takes the time to get to know about you personally, about the business, its ethos and culture, plans and ideas for the future. He then works with you to maintain what is important to you and your business and develops strategies from there.
I would absolutely recommend Billy to anyone who is serious about taking on a business coach.”
Abi Howell, Owner and Managing Director, Truly Tailored Recruitment, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire
We say: “We are very pleased to hear that Abi is having a positive coaching experience with us. Not only are ActionCOACH Cheltenham supporting Abi and her team to realise their business goals, but also endorsing the ethos of the company and its ideals and putting strategic plans in place to grow a sustainable business for the future.”

Jane Baalam, Director, Reward Risk Management Limited, Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire
