ActionCOACH Spreads Its Wings in the Caribbean

Having recently signed the Master Licensee rights in the Caribbean, ActionCOACH plans to make its presence felt in 26 additional countries.

Las Vegas, NV, March 12, 2009 --( ActionCOACH – the world’s number one business coaching franchise in the world, recently signed the Master Licensee rights with Janine Lie-A-Kwie and Arnout Druyvesteyn for 26 countries in the Caribbean region.

Master Licensees (MLs) have the exclusive right to develop the ActionCOACH brand within their territory. The Master Licensee model is regarded as an extremely effective means of expanding franchise systems nationally and internationally.

In return, Master Licensees generate revenue by selling franchises and collecting royalties on the revenue of their franchisees.

As Master Licensees, Janine and Arnout will have the dual role of growing the territory and coaching the franchisees they recruit to success.

Janine and Arnout will be operating their business from Curacao in the Netherlands Antilles. While Arnout has extensive experience as a corporate executive in many large companies including a consulting firm, Janine has extensive experience in the field of small business advisory and training.

A Small Business expert, Janine spent 15 years of her career as a researcher, innovation consultant, start up advisor and University lecturer in Small Business management and entrepreneurship.

“Janine and Arnout are very capable entrepreneurs and will help grow our presence in 26 additional regions,” ActionCOACH Director of Franchise Sales and Marketing Jodie Shaw said. “This brings us closer to our goal of expanding our presence in 120 countries by the end of 2012.”

Janine and Arnout see many opportunities for business coaching in the Caribbean.

“The Caribbean is transforming into an economic community with growing inter-Caribbean trade,” Janine said. “Most Caribbean economies thrive on small and medium sized enterprises; ActionCOACH can now help these businesses become more professional and grow.”

As Master Licensees, the main aim of this duo is to make ActionCOACH the number one business coaching firm in the Caribbean. They will be actively searching for enthusiastic Business Coaches who have a passion for helping business owners in their respective countries.

“We will be traveling across the region with informative seminars,” Arnout said.

ActionCOACH’s simple, practical systems won Janine and Arnout over.

"From my experience working with many business owners, I immediately recognized that ActionCOACH could offer an answer to a great deal of their problems – with a professional, simple and practical results-oriented approach,” Janine said.

As a result of this agreement, the following will be included in their territory:

1. Anguill
2. Antigua and Barbuda
3. Aruba
4. Bahamas
5. Barbados
6. British Virgin Islands
7. Cayman Islands
