ActionCOACH, the world’s largest business coaching firm, is pleased to announce Gary Keating has been awarded their Senior Partner status for Bristol.

After a lifetime of working for himself in the South West of England and Hong Kong, Gary decided to retire back to Bristol in 2011 – but he didn’t enjoy all his free time! Five years later, he found ActionCOACH and a new purpose.

Gary explains “I’ve endured and enjoyed a lifetime of good and challenges in business. Sometimes I’ve worked almost 24 hours a day, seven days a week to make a business work. I realised how becoming an ActionCOACH could make a difference to Bristol. Sparing entrepreneurs from those kind of hours and helping families generate more rewards from their business has filled me and my team with purpose and desire to do more.”
“The ActionCOACH system is brilliant – the knowledge and tools we pass on to our business owner clients have also enabled me to build a successful business too. I have a large family including a grandson who is one month older than my own son, Callum. Even though I chose to come out of retirement, we all spend plenty of time together whether that is teaching piano, tinkering with tractors or joining me on my latest passion of farming sheep and pigs”

As the first to be awarded Senior Partner status in the South West, Gary now has the exclusive ActionCOACH rights to support businesses in the Bristol area, in fact, a potential of over 11,000 business owners. He plans to support as many of these as possible, growing a team of employee coaches over the next 10 years.

ActionCOACH’s UK Co-founder, Ian Christelow, is equally excited about the future for business owners in Bristol, “It was an easy decision to award exclusivity and area development for Bristol to Gary Keating and his team; Last Friday, Gary won both the awards for South West Coach of the Year and the West UK Growth Coach of the Year at our annual Black Tie Awards Dinner, because of the fantastic business growth services and results he and his firm delivers. We know the Bristol area is in the best possible hands.”
