As you are aware, I have owned and operated Tandem Marketing Design since its inception in 1997. While it hasn’t been without its challenges, we have been fortunate to enjoy significant success in our market over that time.
As a firm believer that there is always room for improvement, I was impressed with the breadth and depth of the FocalPoint Business Coaching Powered by Brian Tracy program when you initially approached me. Since the time we began meeting regularly, I have found our coaching sessions to be most effective and thought provoking in getting me focused on new approaches for continued growth at Tandem. During these challenging economic times, you have impressed upon me the importance of establishing specific goals and setting priorities in order to move my business to the next level.
I would strongly recommend any business manager, leader, or entrepreneur that is looking to profitably grow their business to engage you as their business performance coach. They would be lucky to have you and your professional experience, as you have effectively led me to consider and implement new techniques and concepts in my business resulting in a very favourable return in my investment in business coaching.Todd FraserManaging Director, Tandem Marketing
I was introduced to my business coach, Kelly Laverty of FocalPoint Business Coaching, through a mutual associate. I began our coaching sessions just before the first year anniversary of opening my new facility. I had experienced great success during our first year, but was feeling overwhelmed and discouraged with the time required for the day-to-day operations of my business.
Since our weekly coaching sessions, Kelly has been a tremendous help at showing me the benefit of being able to work on the business versus in the business. I have been able to implement new procedures, coach staff and expand services, all while being able to decrease the long hours. It has allowed me to become more focused and productive. During this time, the efficiency and effectiveness of all dogma team members has greatly improved, which in turn has had a positive impact on business operations.
The FocalPoint Business Coaching program is an exceptional program for any business owner. The program itself is well structured, but I appreciate Kelly’s flexibility to move within the program or discuss areas outside of the modules. Kelly’s skills and knowledge enable him to assist with all areas of my business. I know that Kelly has a genuine concern for the success of my business and consider him a trusted advisor.
The program combined with Kelly’s coaching sessions has already brought innumerable positive changes to Dogma. I look forward to each week and highly recommend Kelly to any business owner looking to further their business successes.Megan Armstrong Owner, Dogma Training and Pet Services
It is with great pleasure that I am writing this letter of reference for my Business Coach Kelly Laverty of FocalPoint Business Coaching. I elected to have Kelly as my business coach because the depth of his practical business experience when coupled with the Brian Tracy Coaching program and curriculum represented a powerful combination for success at Cantos Music Foundation.
Kelly has more than 25 years of industry experience in key areas that I believed our organization could benefit from. I have worked with Kelly since November 2008, and he consistently and effectively leverages those skills to provide maximum value in all our sessions. He truly cares about my business and how the business will achieve its goals and how I will achieve my personal objectives. He listens effectively, challenges me to search for the right solutions, and provides me with the right doses of motivation and encouragement to address the challenges and opportunities I face. He demonstrates the virtues of a true and effective coach. Furthermore, I feel he is a trusted advisor with whom I can discuss any issues I have and get sound business advice on how I might wish to address them. He has been a tremendous asset in that regard.
When you combine Kelly’s skills and experience with the FocalPoint Business Coaching System powered by Brian Tracy you have a powerful formula for success. I am impressed with how structured the material is that we use each week in our coaching sessions. While the material is structured, Kelly has demonstrated a great deal of flexibility to adapt it to the needs of Cantos Music Foundation. I am already implementing changes to my business and seeing positive results.
I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Kelly and progressing through the FocalPoint Program. He effectively keeps me accountable for my deliverables which I appreciate. There is no question the program has had an impact on our business to date. Finally, what is very important to me is that Kelly truly cares about my success.Andrew Mosker President & CEO, National Music Centre
