I have found Parag a breath of fresh air. Any issue I have within the organisation Parag has helped me find a path forward. He never leaves without ensuring you have a list of tasks that you will complete between visits. He helped me to increase the proportion of my time spent working “on” the business not in it.Anna Curran, Director, Furnitubes International
I think that we’re good designers but we weren’t great business people and I really want to be clearer in terms of visions, goals and financial direction in the practice. The course has really transformed the practice over the last 6 months. The mindset and attitude of both myself, my business partners and our employees has completely changed.Catherine Pease, Director, vPPR Architects
I’ve benefited from putting more structure and planning into my day. I feel more in control of the business. I really like the ethos of ActionCOACH, creating great quality of life, establishing a profitable business, which is possible by planning and acting smart whilst being generous to staff and clients.Denise Kaplan, Director, Orhan London Tailoring
That’s an 81% increase since we started coaching. Parag brought calm and clarity to what was one of the most stressful periods of my life. He helped me to put in systems that allowed us to run a growing business. 2012 and the preceding 2 years have seen dramatic increases in revenue, net profit, customer numbers and number of employees. This has been facilitated by Parag Prasad who has been our coach since 2011.Gary Fage, Managing Director, Janitorial Express
My business coaching experience has been extraordinary. Each and every time we get together on the Group Coaching Programme I am challenged and pushed to think about my business in new and creative ways. Each session, I take away new ideas and processes to implement and action. Do this…and your business can do nothing but grow. It’s not always easy but it does produce the results! And that’s the exciting part.Joshua Rafter, Managing Director, Outlet Property
We are implementing a new five-year business plan. Our strategic goals are to double turnover from £4m to £8m.Philip Breese, Partner, Weston Williamson & Partners
Working to an intensive business coaching programme has challenged our approach. We’re already making changes, for example: much more focussed and astute marketing and much more detailed analysis of our financial organisation.
With the new behaviours I’ve created I feel I’ve reached a new state of peak performance at work, while feeling more relaxed and carefree at home.Eric Partaker, Co-Founder, Chilango
I’ve increased productivity and efficiency significantly in just 4 months, become more focused and able to better manage distractions. The coaching process – the 121’s, workshops, coaching systems and Parag’s straight talking honesty – have been a catalyst for all of these changes, and will help Chilango achieve its global vision.
The most important thing about the coaching is it ensures you are continually looking at the key areas that need improving in order to run a successful business. It can be tough to take on these tasks when you get sucked into day-to-day business operations. However, it’s vital to be able to work strategically ‘on’ the business and continue to delegate if you want to grow. London Business Coaching have helped us in all these areas.Anthony Sargent, Managing Director, FishNeedWater
Parag, you probably don’t realise how much of a testament it is to yourself that I feel able to trust you completely to guide my businesses and for you to work with my employees. I have never allowed anyone to exert such an influence since I started trading. Business coaching transformed the way we manage our business and as a result the business developed to a point where it runs without my direct involvement. So I now have a business that is growing impressively without me.David Waugh, Managing Director, Wauton Samuel
London Business Coaching has been instrumental in turbo-boosting the agency’s business performance by improving our efficiencies up to 20% across our 5 divisions.Louis de Rohan, Managing Director, LDR London
The business would definitely not have grown as strong as it has over the last 18 months without a business coach. These amazing results have been achieved through diligent implementation of essential new cash, time and operational systems. Parag has helped us to focus on upgrading the “business chassis” to scale LDR LONDON over the next three years and grow revenue to £1 million by 2016.
We are now on track to make 25% profit and grow from 10 to 14 people by the end of the year. By then, we will also have a global network of strategic partnerships in place, including in Rio de Janeiro, Beijing, Hong Kong, Moscow and New York.
We value Parag’s contribution as an important part of fulfilling our ambitious goals and bold vision. Parag’s business mentoring has helped me identify many areas that we were instantly able to improve with measurable results. I am a strong believer that every business should have a coach.Paul Lindsell, Owner, Capsule01
It’s been fantastic. Our profit is higher despite tough market conditions…and we are in a strong place. My hours and stress levels have reduced and more time is devoted to the key tasks that really matter.Serena Cook, Managing Director, Deliciously Sorted
I’ve learnt so much. I feel much more entrepreneurial and focused on developing my team, so they continue to perform to an even higher standard. They are incredibly excited about our transformation through coaching and our future direction. We have much clearer targets and KPI’s that we now track regularly.
