Presenter and Business Coach / ActionCOACH
Derek O’Dwyer is an experienced business owner who worked in business management for over 10 years before taking his career to the next level when he quit his lucrative job in sales management to pursue his entrepreneurial dreams coaching businesses with ActionCOACH, for which he is now a franchisee.
He saw ActionCOACH as the perfect way to train others as he had been trained but in a systemized way with additional tools and strategies that would let others succeed just like he has. Even after years in business he says: ‘I continue to be excited to see each client develop and smash their goals. I bring a frank and honest approach and like working with businesses who like to keep score and build their business based on factual and information on a weekly basis. ’Derek works on a 1-2-1 basis or in groups to tailor the business coaching sessions especially for you.
As the longest serving ActionCOACH coach in Europe, Derek has been a franchisee for 20 years. As a self-proclaimed ‘no frills’ kind of guy he specialises in results, metrics, leadership and personal development to help you and your business reach your fullest potential.
He has lived and worked in the UK, Ireland, Australia and the US, which has given him an understanding of how businesses of varying sizes operate in different countries, whether that be in rural or urban business settings. Across his impressive career Derek has accrued experience in Construction, Professional Services, IT & telecommunications, retail & hospitality.
So no matter what industry you’re in and regardless of whether your company has 2 employees or 200 he has the skills and business savvy to get the most out of your assets.
Derek’s greatest achievement to date is that he has assisted clients to create over 250 jobs in the past 3 years as well as working with over 450 different companies. He has also managed to coach a client to quadruple their turnover to over €48m over a 6 year period.
His transformative style of coaching lets his clients expand their businesses and grow profitably while working less hours each week to get that perfect work/life balance.
ActionCOACH has given Derek the freedom to change the lives of his clients while also being his own boss and allowing him to be around to watch his family grow, living in the country he loves. He now lives in County Clare with his wife and three teenage children and gets involved in community development and golf in his spare time.
