Andrew worked with our organisation for a period of ten months. During this time he effectively organised our strategic thinking and created direction and focus. Junior members of the team benefited from the regular seminars that he held locally.
Andrew was tenacious in making sure we followed up ideas with actions within set time frames. He also made us think ‘outside the box’ and his outside in approach to viewing our business helped us to change a number of the ways we ran our organisation.
Our work with ActionCOACH and Andy Goldberg started at a very challenging time for our business. Over the ensuing 15 months our work with Andy has transformed our Sales Team and developed a clear sales focus and activity. The work we undertook was demanding but extremely worthwhile and our revised processes have been embedded into the business cycle. I would not hesitate to recommend Andy Goldberg and ActionCOACH to anyone looking for support in a similar situation. I doubt we could have executed the changes so quickly or effectively without his help.
Tracy Brown, Managing Director
On behalf of RACAM Security & Communications, I would like to thank Andy for all his help and guidance over the last year throughout the course of our 1-2-1 coaching program.
Before we started working with you, we knew that there were a number of elements to the business that we wanted to change but were unsure as to how to move forward. Very quickly you understood the challenges we faced and began helping us implement the strategies we needed to overcome them.
As a company, we now have a much clearer vision of how to move forward. Thanks to the vast amount of learning we all gained while working with you we have seen consistently improving results over the last couple of months.
Thanks again for all your help and we look forward to working with you again in the future.
We are delighted to recommend Andrew Goldberg and his company ActionCOACH to any company or individual wanting help to improve personal productivity and financial results.
We used his services during 2012 and quickly learned to trust his insights and advice. These came from a track record of personal achievement and were augented by the particular and unique structure of the ActionCOACH organisation. We found his positivity and enthusiasm inspiring and we know that this applied to the rest of our company too. We would also highlight his sensitivity and realism too.
The business improvement ideas we were introduced to were many and varied but were always immensely practical and usually highly original too. Backed up by sound theory they were nevertheless always relentlessly focussed on quick and demonstrable results.
Our company has definitely benefitted from our participation in the ActionCOACH programme.
Charles Cottam, Managing Director
It is always difficult running a family firm and in particular when you have FIVE children all involved. I found it so hard to pass on my knowledge and expertise to them in the way the business had to be organised and managed. But you and your team were able to take all that responsibility off me and set about training them in business organisation, business systems and what we should be looking at to make our business even more successful.
Mark and Peter have benefited enormously from your input and I have got to say the decision to go with you was the best decision I’ve made since starting up in business 28 years ago. May I take this opportunity to wish you continued success.
Managing Director, The Kitchen Depot
I would like to thank you for advice and help over the time you provided coaching.
Even having worked in business for many years it was the shot in the arm both the business and myself needed.
From the marketing to the financial side, you provided clarity in how to write and implement systems and plans that will provide growth and success for the business.
On a personal note I found our weekly sessions both engaging and highly motivational.
I very much look forward to working again with you in the near future.
Gordon Steele, director
I am writing to thank you for the support the ActionCOACH process has given to my business. I own the BoConcept Danish interiors store in Glasgow. We had been slowly but surely growing the business but there were many issues and missed opportunities.
Since working with Andy as my business coach:
We have doubled our underlying profit 3 years in a row.
For the last 6 months our turnover is up almost 38% on last year.
Our Design Consultants are motivated in a way I really didn’t think possible.
Andy keeps me focused. He guides me towards what matters and stops me jumping from one ‘firefight’ to another.
No time to myself is a thing of the past.
This month we followed the ActionCOACH recruitment system for the first time. We received over 200 applications and our final group selection event was mind blowing.
There is an impression that coaching is expensive? Looking back, I was nervous about incurring cost. Comparing cost to the tripled bottom line in my business, I was right to take the plunge. ActionCLUB is perfect for any small business.
Director, BoConcept Glasgow
Having attended the ActionCOACH GrowthCLUB sessions for a year or so now, I thought I would send you a short note to say thank you and to let you know how much I enjoy them.
As a new business owner, the sessions have been extremely helpful to me in putting the correct foundations in place and I would go as far as to say that the 90 day planning sessions are now very much an integral part of my business.
The opportunity to spend a full day working "on the business" rather than "in the business" alongside like minded business owners has been very fruitful and the wealth of knowledge and expertise impart by the various coaches and guest speakers represents incredible value for money.
Thanks for all your help Andy and it goes without saying that I would thoroughly recommend GrowthCLUB to anyone who is serious about developing and growing their business.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your efforts in coaching the sales team here at ESS.
We have and will continue to use the tools provided, as part of the ActionCOACH program, to push our business forward. The program has helped bring about a change of culture within our business, making us think more about the positive aspects and helping to provide a clearer vision with forward planning.
I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of ActionCOACH and in particular Andy Goldberg to business people in all sectors who put value on efficiency and profit!
Richard J Dunsmore, Operations Director
Having had you visit the Practice to take advantage of one of your complimentary coaching sessions (which was an excellent introduction to the coaching programme and set us thinking about how you could help us), Woodside Dental Practice engaged you as their business coach.
We wanted to address key issues surrounding our team and our time.
Your orientation for our team was fun, highly participative and the images of flocks of geese flying 70% further by working as a team are forever embedded in our minds!
You worked with us to develop strategies to make our business run more smoothly, to focus our goals for the business and to manage our time more efficiently and effectively.
You have also introduced us to strategies for marketing our business more effectively.
We have already had several people comment on how forward thinking and ‘out there’ we are simply by having more information about how our business runs. This is because you taught us that you ‘can’t manage what you don’t measure’ and Andrea and I are already more confident business owners as a result.
I would have no hesitation in recommending your coaching programme, even if they think they know it all; they may be surprised wat what they can achieve!
Thanks again for all your help!
Mark and Andrea Fowler, Woodside Dental Practice
Having worked with Andy and ActionCOACH for nearly 10 months, I would have no hesitation in recommending Andy’s services to any business which is looking to grow, increase revenue and profits, develop a winning team, or systemise their business.
The ActionCOACH system has enabled us to develop a clear and focused action plan to help us look at and improve on the key areas of our business.
Our fourth quarter last year was our best quarter at Blu ever in terms of revenue, and while that was down to our own team’s hard work, dedication, and expertise, we also know that it was our attention and focus on specific ActionCOACH strategies and processes that pushed us in the right direction.
The team enjoy the coaching sessions and quarterly planning days, which keep us accountable, motivated, energised, and always learning new things.
ActionCOACH works for Blu.
Stuart Allison, Managing Director
My experience with ActionCOACH is it’s not about reinventing the wheel, it’s about getting things done. It’s about putting into practice all the things you know you should be doing but have created a hundred excuses not to do.
Before ActionCOACH, I had a lot of uncertainties. I had no clear business plan and lacked direction. I knew this had to change, I needed to do something. By chance (or law of attraction) Andy got in touch and asked if we could meet to discuss the business. Instead of blindly dismissing this call I decided I’d find out what Andy had to say.
The first meeting was an eye-opener in itself, I quickly realised Andy really knew what he was talking about. There was no business jargon or pressure, just an honest conversation with feedback.
As soon as we started with Andy it felt like the business was beginning to move forward. He very quickly helped me identify what I wanted from the business and how we would achieve it.
It’s not about shortcuts or quick fixes, it’s about establishing solid foundations and systems which will allow your business to grow. However what made the biggest difference for me was personal accountability. There was no more making excuses and putting things off; once I agreed my nextweek’s work with Andy I knew it had to be done. It’s this accountability which drives you forward, constantly moving your business in the right direction.
I would encourage anyone to give Andy a chance, listen to what he has to say.
Douglas Simpson, manager
For the attention of Andy Goldberg
This is just to say thanks for your invaluable input over the last 6 months to help improve our performance.
Although we have been in business for 25 years, you brought a lot of ideas old and new to the table to help us achieve our business goals.
In short you made us do the things we don’t like doing (like talking to you every Tuesday morning LOL).
Seriously, thanks for all your hard work over the 6 months, it’s appreciated and I would have no hesitation in recommending the ActionCOACH philosophies to anyone.

Andrew Goldberg, ActionCOACH
We would have no hesitation in recommending Andy and the ActionCOACH programme to any bsiness.
Having used the services for the past ten months we have been delighted with the results.
Andy will look at your business and discuss what areas need improving then set out a mangeable plan to work through.
Using this approach we worked on many different areas, from sales and marketing to overheads and staff management. His staff training sessions were always motivational and informative but most importantly fun as well.
Our weekly meetings helped us to keep focused on the agreed tasks and provided great motivation for carrying them out.
Some of the best ideas were often th emost obvious or BFO’s as we called them.
We feel that we have grown as a business and as business owners and it has been a privilege working with Andy.
Paul Walker, director
