Las Vegas, NV, May 05, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Having spent nearly a decade and a half building large businesses around the world, Andrew Laurie found his calling in business and executive coaching.
“I started my career in the small business world, and then spent 15 years building large businesses worldwide – initially in sales, marketing and business development and later as Managing Director of several companies. In this capacity, I built new businesses, turned around businesses and grew existing businesses in Australia. Hong Kong and the United Kingdom,” he said.
Laurie grew companies of all sizes –the largest reaching close to $2 billion in sales.
Most recently, he expanded his business coaching practice at ActionCOACH by adding executive coaching certification to it.
“The ActionCOACH Executive Coaching program is excellent and it provided me with a number of practical techniques and frameworks to utilize in helping business leaders develop themselves and their businesses,” he said. “In addition, it drew greater value out of my existing knowledge and experience by overlaying a range of techniques, which facilitate the application of this knowledge and experience to other business leaders.”
Confident and raring to go, Laurie’s personal brand and positioning statement is distinct.
“I am the “go to” coach for those wanting to rapidly grow and develop the performance of their business, while still maintaining a great and balanced lifestyle,” he said. “I bring a broad and deep knowledge base, an outstanding record of achievement and proven ability to achieve great results with a range of businesses and executives.”
Laurie listed four things that set him apart from the competition in the executive coaching marketplace.
“I believe there are four things, which give me an instant edge over any competition –firstly, the ActionCOACH intellectual property and the network of coaches within the system; secondly, my own hands-on experience of having actually built and led large companies; thirdly, my knowledge-base and academic background; and fourthly, the fact that I have been able to do it all whilst maintaining a healthy, balanced lifestyle,” he said.
Laurie’s long-term vision is to further develop and grow the practice by providing exemplary results to both executives and businesses.
He enjoys climbing, skiing, running, playing a wide range of sports, traveling and spending quality time with his family.
“Being a Business and Executive Coach with the world’s leader grants me the luxury to do it all,” he said.
