Kevin Riley

Business Growth Specialist

Why did you begin working for ActionCOACH?
I have experienced the highs and lows of owning a business and I want to use my experience to help others enjoy the highs and avoid the lows.

Tell us something interesting about yourself…
I truly believe in the importance of continued self learning, so I have set myself the challenge of reading 100 business books each year. If you want to know which books to read let me know (or join our BookCLUB!)

What is your favourite poem?
IF, by Rudyard Kipling. If you have never read it, look it up and let me know if it strikes a chord with you too.

Tell us something interesting about yourself…
I appeared on a number of TV programmes as a child – This is Your Life, The Human Factor and I am also mentioned in a book!

What are your favourite past times?
I love travelling and experiencing new cultures. I enjoy sharing these experiences with my husband Mike, twin girls Merryn and Issey, and our best friends who live in Australia.

I’m a keen jogger and I ran the London marathon in 2011. I’ve recently got my road bike out of the garage and am enjoying a couple of 20-40 mile cycles per week with my girl friends.

What’s your favourite quote?
Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift.

Tell us something interesting about yourself…
When I was younger I used to train with the London circus as a tumbler & trapeze artist, whilst everyone else went to relax with their friends after school I was getting the train to London!

What is your favourite holiday destination?
For me, nothing beats a get away to the Cornish coast! Especially in the winter so we’re able to take the dogs on the beaches with us.

What is you favourite quote?
“Believing in yourself is the first secret to success”

The positive energy, drive for self improvement and continuous learning that ActionCOACH promotes is unlike any other company I have worked for. It is a company that truly makes a difference.

Tell us something interesting about yourself…
I’m a Scottish lass, but I spent 4 years living in South Africa before moving to England… and I’ve still managed to keep my Scottish accent!

I’m a massive foodie and have worked with some great (famous) chefs.

Go on then, drop in some famous names…
I have cooked for Tom Cruise and the comunards (not together of course – that would be weird!)

Chatting on the phone – I like learning about people.

David Evans

Client Relations Manager

Tell us something interesting about yourself…
I have a black belt in Karate and can remember the surnames of my secondary school form members in alphabetical order (I learnt this on my 1st day and for some reason I can still remember it a fair few years later!).

Why do you love working for ActionCOACH?
I love the ethos of what we do. Ultimately improving the lives of business owners and securing the lives of the employees working for them. I also have a “continually learning” mentality so I think I really fit in working with coaches.
