ActionCOACH Canada Rock Guitarist is latest Franchise Owner

Ottawa, ON- ActionCOACH Canada’s latest entry into the ActionCOACH business franchise is Kevin Savoy, guitarist in the band Yesterday’s Tomorrow, a tight rock cover band out of Ontario.

Savoy, a seasoned veteran of the high tech and sales management industry was chosen from a selected group of applicants in the first round of the 2011 ActionCOACH Draft. A family man living in Oxford Mills, Kevin is active in the community as a volunteer hockey coach, baseball coach, and a member of the Knights of Columbus Chapter 5333.

“I was at that point in my life where I wanted to take the challenge of being a business owner and start giving back to the community. I had a successful career in Sales management and when this opportunity to be a help others as part of ActionCOACH presented itself, it was a natural fit. I’m eager to be part of this small business revolution,” says Savoy.

Kevin is known for his energy on and off the stage and as a former colleague of his said, “He always engaged his audience and was able to connect with people so easily. I find this to be one of Kevin’s best attributes…He also has an innate business sense and will make a great business coach.  With my interaction with him I was able to grow my business significantly as did my co-workers,” said Lynn Gillman of Avnet-Memec Corp.

Kevin is now entering training for the ActionCOACH franchise and will soon be setting up business in the Kemptville, Brockville and Ottawa area.

Turn up the heat on your Business while Your Competition is on Vacation

Summer is Waning

I saw this great story in the Globe and Mail the other day:

article1632646– about slowing down work in the summer.
The author makes many good points, but I would go even further. Summer is THE time to hustle & make that extra effort.

Of course, that’s easy to say. When the temperature climbs past 30, & the humidex is closer to 40…who wants to work? But I’m am not saying you shouldn’t take a vacation. Far from it.

I am saying that a lot of companies, small, medium & large, get lazy at this time of year. NOW is the time to win the business of those customers who are less than blown away by the service they are getting right now.

A friend of mine, as I write, is trying to pay a well known national courier company to pick up a package for him. Nothing doing. He’s been on hold for a week & a half. Ok, I exaggerate a little to make a point, but NOW is the time he needs to hear from other courier companies that want his business.

My point?

I tell all my clients: Work Even Harder. Go after all those customers in the past who have passed you by because they use another company. Chances are, at this time of year, they will be all ears!
