After many years as an ActionCOACH franchisee, Julie decided to put her money where her mouth is and invest in the future of the franchise model. Joining forces with Ian Christelow, they purchased the entire UK territory, a sum with the total of £5million and set about their plans to spread across the length and breadth of the country.
With Ian, she developed a ground-breaking new Firm Builder Senior Partner model, which included a 10-year plan to reach 2million UK business owners and positively impact the lives of so many more in of their new 230 Senior Partner territories.
Action Coaches support business owners in their respective local communities with proven growth strategies and tactics to thrive. During one-to-one or group coaching sessions, coaches share wisdom and knowledge with their clients, helping them to boost productivity, efficiency, and effectiveness within their companies. Julie has seen the impact ActionCOACH has from both sides of the spectrum.
The franchise is the only UK franchise to be rated 5-star for franchisee satisfaction and be included in Elite Franchise Top 10 every year since both these accolades. ActionCOACH has also been named as the Best Business Coaching franchise in the USA by Entrepreneurs’ Franchise Top 100.
Julie is not short of accolades herself, being named in the Top 100 Inspirational Women in Franchising by What Franchise, and made the shortlist for Woman Franchisor of the Year in the 2021 Encouraging Women into Franchising Awards.
