Global Partner with Local Passion for Northern Powerhouse


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. ActionCOACH, the world’s largest business coaching firm, currently works with business owners from all over the region, supporting entrepreneurship, business growth, whilst creating employment, wealth and economic vibrancy. The partnership provides the perfect opportunity to take things to the next level.

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 ActionCOACH’s vision to create abundance through business re-education.

“The alignment of our two brands is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the results delivered by both parties in making the North a great place to do business and live ,” says Ron Maycock of ActionCOACH, who’s based in the north. “Working together with the Northern Powerhouse and their partner programme we aim to make the North the beating heart of the UK economy, whilst positively impacting on as many people’s lives as possible.

“By forming the partnership, we hope to increase awareness of life in the North and create momentum towards our objective of developing sustainable, high performing businesses, which will in turn attract talent from all over the world to our region. The work our business coaches do, meets the Northern Powerhouse goals for the growth of the economy and we would encourage everyone to pull together, get involved and make a difference.”

With 43 ActionCOACH teams working in the region, their large central sales office in Sheffield and their commitment to bring abundance to every business they coach, ActionCOACH have committed on every level to the vision of the Northern Powerhouse.

“I’m delighted to welcome ActionCOACH to our rapidly growing Northern Powerhouse Partners Programme,” says Rt Hon Jake Berry MP, Minister of State for the Northern Powerhouse and Local Growth. “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.
