John McHale Named Top Business Coach

A peerless track record of success has seen the work of a world-class business coach recognised at a prestigious awards ceremony.

John McHale, from Scawby, North Lincolnshire, scooped up the award for Best Client Results for the Europe, Middle East and African region, at the Business Excellence Awards BizX2023. Not only that, but he also saw 5 of his own clients win on the evening as well. 

Hosted by the 400-strong ActionCoach organisation John is part of, the annual awards celebrate the success of both its network of business coaches and the thousands of companies supported around the world.

John said: “I was absolutely stunned to be announced as the winner of the Best Client Results category for the third year in a row.  To also see 5 of my clients win their categories was mind blowing.”

He added: “It’s great to see Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire leading the way, and my personal success with this award is testament to all the great things achieved by my clients in the past year.”

And John’s clients – which are all SMEs based in the Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire area – also dominated the night, with 10 nominations and five winners.

In his role, John supports business owners to firstly envisage and then achieve their goals, and this has included one company progressing from a standing start to turning over £5 million in three years under his mentorship.

He has amassed a wealth of senior management experience working at Tata Steel in Scunthorpe, until 2014, when he decided to leave the corporate world and instead put his expertise to use supporting burgeoning business people.

Since then, John has helped clients – who currently range from engineering specialists to funeral directors, retailers and fulfilment centres – think big and achieve their dreams. He puts his success down to not just his obvious business acumen, but also his passion for helping others build their businesses.

“It’s because I care,” he said. “I can quickly get to the root of complex problems, and then support my client with identifying the solutions, along with devising a plan for how to fulfil their goals. Sometimes, I think I believe in people more than they believe in themselves, so it’s about transferring that belief, and helping them develop the courage they need to succeed. That’s when amazing things start to happen.

“Working with SMEs is so enjoyable, I get to work with different people and teams every day – it’s fabulous.

“Working with me, you get a marketing director, sales and finance director, training coordinator, partner, confidante, mentor and friend, all focusing on you and your success.

“Winning these awards is a huge recognition of the effort and work put in by all of our clients, as well as my team. Thanks also go to my coach Roger Pemberton, and the ActionCoach UK team.”

The ceremony, at the Excel in London, formed part of a two-day conference attended by more than 1,200 delegates that featured keynote speakers including Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Lord Sebastian Coe, Steven Bartlett, Mary Portas, Marcus Sheridan and many more great, inspirational guests.
