The ActionCOACH (Hull) story:

Pamela Featherstone became a franchisee for business coaching chain ActionCOACH in 2012, running the brand’s Hull territory. 

Now, just three years later, Featherstone holds the title of ActionCOACH ‘Global Coach of the Year’ – the first person from the UK to ever win the award in the 23 years of the brand’s history – alongside accolades for North UK Coach, Rookie Coach and Most Improved Franchisee. 

One of the leading business coaching franchises in the world, ActionCOACH specialises in using one-to-one face coaching, group coaching, audio and video coaching, workshops, seminars and more to help companies develop their personal and business development techniques.

With a “passion and commitment to best serve clients”, Featherstone has grown her Hull network to seven-figure revenues and has invested heavily in educating her own team through training and publications in order to better support customers. This customer focus is also evident in her approach to building a sense of community with clients and she often runs social activities such as a day at the races and champagne meals.

With turnover set to grow by almost 50% over the next year, Featherstone’s goal is to “make sure that [everyone her business] touches will benefit greatly and reach the goals they want to achieve”.

Why ActionCOACH (Hull) made our 60:

With a raft of impressive titles to her name and business growth set to accelerate, franchisee Pamela Featherstone is a worthy finalist for the Startups Awards. Her motivation to bolster the ActionCOACH brand is highly admirable.
