Yorkbuilder – email received 2 years after working with Clive Scotter,

Hi john

Rarely do I get time for reflexion but just a quick thanks for all you taught me in the coaching sessions.

No one can understand the realities of running a business until you have actually been in the driver’s seat and the knowledge you shared certainly helps in all areas.

Although things are still hard I find it easier to understand the reality of what is important in life.

I hope you and your family are all well and I look forward to seeing you in the future.

Once again many thanks.




Web Services Manager – David Newton & Co Ltd 

“It has been a pleasure and a privilege to have been coached by John Davison for the last 18 months. He has been able to help us to successfully tap into our best assets – ourselves. John helped us to focus and find clarity in our business and furthermore has given us the tools to allow us to continue to do so. Thanks to the work John has done with us, we now have more work than we have ever had in 8 years of being in business. This has come about because we now understand how to seek out work effectively and how to close the deal on more of the potentials we deal with than ever before. In short, John has taken an underdeveloped fledgling business and taught us how to fly on our own. The sky really is the limit, thanks to John’s support. “


Executive Managing Director of a business:

“I want to begin by letting you know how much I was against the entire philosophy of business coaching, and prior to working with ActionCOACH, I highly rejected the notion that coaches provide increased business effectiveness. Now, I feel that working with Action International was the best decision I could have made, and it has accelerated the effectiveness of our company in immeasurable ways. The education you provided on process and systemization provided the firm with guidance to effectively build our sales force to increase profitability. The management and communication skills you have provided are assisting us with establishing an organizational platform that encourages teamwork and open communications; finally, the ongoing follow-up meetings continue to hold me accountable as an owner to effectively monitor key performance indicators such as revenues, expenses, leads, closed loans and etc. Thank you for not only shifting my paradigm on the world of coaching, but I have enjoyed learning new methods and strategies to shift my paradigm on running a business.”


Father and Son IT company successfully completed Group Coaching:

“I would not have believed that my business could progress so far in just 14 weeks… I am now well on my way to having a Commercial, Profitable Enterprise that Works without ME! In my opinion, every business needs to invest in a coach.”


Electrical Contractor testimonial:

“Many thanks for working with me, as my business coach over the past few months, it has been a real insight and a great, and enjoyable learning experience.

Before we met, the business had a major identity crisis, which in turn meant I had no idea what direction we were heading in, and if I didn’t know, my staff certainly wouldn’t. When we met I had obviously had my downturns in business to contend with, which had seriously dented my confidence. Although I had 100% in my company’s services and products, I lacked one serious element – confidence. However within a month or two, I had the identity problem resolved, and my confidence and focus are now at levels never seen before.

I am looking at the whole concept of business in a totally different way now, and am working as much as possible on the business, to develop it, so that I can afford the time to start working on other businesses which I have ticking along in the background.

If you have any other business owners that would like to know the value of your tuition, please let them know they are free to call me.”


Testimonial from a Printing company:

“It is with great pleasure that I write you, to thank you for the help you have been to me in smoothing out and improving my reprographics business. I have been a part of this business for 31 years and I thought I knew how best to run it. However after having had you coach my brother and me for this short time, my eyes have been opened to a new way of looking at business

You have time and again gone above and beyond any of my expectations in the coaching process. Your sincere caring for not only my business but, also for my personal goals has truly been a breath of fresh air. As you know we had tried other consultants in the past to help our business grow, but found them to be more interested in their own bottom line then in helping ours.

I am pleased to inform you that our profit is up 18 percent so far this year. This is great news after 3 years of steady declines. Again thank you for all your help. I look forward to achieving even greater things as we work together in the future.”


IT Support Services Company:

“Our business had been in operation for just over three years and we were growing. But, we realized that there were a great many things we needed to begin implementing if we were going to make it to the next level of growth. Much to our relief we discovered an incredible business coach, John Davison.

John Davison brought new insights and provided practical techniques to enable our company to achieve long term strategic goals and to strengthen our company’s team approach. I feel confident that our company will benefit from these business planning efforts for many years into the future.

We found John had the insights and inspirations which were plentiful and we were quickly on our way to a sharper, smarter and savvier business. We’re now nearing our fourth year in business with much thanks to John.”

Sean J Sanpher, Technical Director, Data-Assurance Services Ltd.


Full Service Media Agency:


We’ve seen major improvements to our company through working ‘on’ the business. We have been amazed at how much we’ve been able to achieve in these first 3 months through a bit of forward planning and focusing our energy in the right directions.

John’s a fantastic coach and it’s a highly valuable investment but you have to put in the hours. It’s hard work but worth it. 

There have been quite a few successes already! Successful recruitment, systemisation, planning, new clients, marketing.
