Las Vegas, NV, July 29, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- An Industrial Psychologist by profession, Kathi Clarke spent most of her time prior to joining ActionCOACH in the corporate game gaining the all-round business experience that has seen her succeed in general management. She started her career in retail marketing and advertising and after being selected for a Masters Programme at one of South Africa’s leading universities, she joined the human resources division of Donaldsons, a South African subsidiary of a global air filtration business headquartered in Minneapolis.
She followed her five-year stint with Donaldsons with an 18-month solo trip through Africa and Europe and went on to spend 15 years in East Africa principally working for and with multinationals - EAC Trading, CARE International, Anglogold and DANIDA - as a Managing Director and a business consultant, among others.
Since returning to South Africa two years ago, she has been principally providing services to organisations looking to go to the “next level” and to successfully navigate the normal responsibilities and challenges of visioning, marketing, reorganising for greater profit and re-positioning for significant change that this next level demands.
Clarke first heard of ActionCOACH through a fellow parent at her daughter’s school. On investigation, she felt that it would be strategic to join forces with a global network like Actioncoach and that this would provide exponentially improved value to her present and any future clients.
“I also much preferred the coaching model to traditional consulting and believed the ownership that it demands from the client will be key to long term results,” Clarke said.
She has joined the Kwazulu-Natal (KZN) firm based in Pietermaritzburg in South Africa and will be offering ActionCOACH services to the broader Midlands area.
Her biggest achievement has been growing and promoting business teams and making a significant profit despite being specifically told, “It can’t possibly be done!” This, together with all ActionCOACH, the world’s number one coaching company, has to offer, is a winning combination for any client.
ActionCOACH is the world’s number one business coaching and executive coaching firm, with more than 1,000 offices in 26 countries. To learn more, go to actioncoach.com.
