CBC enthused by Brad Sugars – ActionCOACH

Thanks to the organisation skills of Martin Shimmen (ActionCOACH) and a little assistance from Chairman, Paul Wakefield (BLR Financial) the CBC Networking team embarked on a London trip last week to see Brad Sugars, the founder of ActionCOACH, the business coaching franchise.

The guy was electric and CBC members were quick to point out that 3 hours bolt upright on a church-pew had never been so tolerable.

We started the evening with a coach journey from High Wycombe Holiday Inn to Pizza Express around the corner from the Emmanuel Centre where Brad and his team where preparing.

The pizza’s piled up (though Paul Cartwright – Halo windows, opted for a salad!?) beers and wine flowed and everyone enjoyed themselves. Especially when Genovieve Feasey (The Choice To Change) elaborated on her new tea exporting venture!

Then we hit the venue for our enlightening seminar from Brad. ‘Buying Customers‘ was the title of his presentation and a lot of ideas, strategies and handy tips were scribbled frantically by Nick Knapp (NK Financial Management) and Martin Wyvill (Springwater Print Solutions) to name a few!

A thoroughly entertaining evening in my books although a little costly for the back-hander that I had to give Brad for emphasising the essential requirement for…

    Really glad everyone enjoyed the Brad Sugars ‘Buying Customers’ event. This demonstrates the value of CBC membership for me – so much more that just networking. Business education, friendship and support in bucket loads!

    Absolutely Martin, as a fairly new member it has been a fabulous support network! The event was not only inspiring but fantastic as a tool for us to help ourselves. I’m sure there are at least a few areas that we can all make definite improvements upon and reap the rewards. All in all, a great evening and it was also nice to get a chance to chat and get to know you all a little better 🙂

    Great team outing. Let’s make this one of many. Business and pleasure perfectly blended.

    Some really interesting ideas and strategies from the head of Action Coach. 3 hrs of packed content – and a bit of a social occasion into the mix. It’s was clear to see why Auditel and Action Coach complement one another so well and have formally partnered; it’s a great combination that helps businesses drive growth and profitability. Simon.
