Business coaching giant, ActionCOACH, has become the latest official partner of the Northern Powerhouse, joining forces to boost the profile of the North as a key place to do business in the UK. Paul Limb, from ActionCOACH North West, is one of the 43 business coaches based in the North who can benefit from the partnership.
Paul, based in Egerton, was excited to bring the announcement of the partnership to his local community when he met with the Minister of State for the Northern Powerhouse and Local Growth, the Rt Hon Jake Berry MP on Friday. Paul coaches business owners in the area to improve their profitability and efficiency, something which meets with the Northern Powerhouse’s goals for the growth of the economy.
“The partnership is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the results delivered by both parties in making the North a great place to do business and live. Working together with the Northern Powerhouse and their partner programme we aim to make the North the beating heart of the UK economy,” said Paul.
“It’s great to have this opportunity, not just on a local scale but for the region as a whole. It will provide a huge benefit to coaches, businesses and residents as we all pull together to promote the North as the thriving community that it has become.”
The Northern Powerhouse forms part of a government initiative to highlight the scope of opportunity for northern businesses and hopes to improve the quality of life – but not just for businesses, for the economy and the general public too. The ethos aligns perfectly with Paul’s vision to create abundance through business re-education.
“I’m delighted to welcome ActionCOACH to our rapidly growing Northern Powerhouse Partners Programme,” said Rt Hon Jake Berry MP. “With their commitment to supporting businesses and entrepreneurs across the Northern Powerhouse and throughout the UK to thrive, they are well placed to help us shine a spotlight on talent in the region and demonstrate what the North has to offer.”
The Northern Powerhouse is the Government’s vision for a super-connected, globally-competitive northern economy with a flourishing private sector, a highly-skilled population, and world-renowned civic and business leadership. The Northern Powerhouse Partner Programme is an essential part of creating the Northern Powerhouse. Government is growing a network of partners who all believe strongly in the economic potential of the North and support the need for a combined effort by government and business to realise that potential. There are businesses and organisations from across the North, from a variety of sectors, signed up to the partner programme.
