Meet - PAUL FAGAN , Master Licensee of ActionCOACH Business Coaching Ireland
Paul Fagan - Master Licensee of ActionCOACH Ireland - introduced ActionCOACH to Ireland in 2002. Paul is married with two young children, he grew up in and still lives in Howth, Co. Dublin. He has extensive experience in Banking having spent 7 years working in branch banking before moving to London to work with Bank of Boston in 1989. In early 1991 - Paul returned to Dublin and joined Ulster Investment Bank as Manager in the Corporate Banking Division where he worked with corporate clients in the property and argicultural sectors. Paul transferred to the Private Client Unit at Ulster Bank Group in 1997 as the demand for investment management services was growing in line with the growing Irish economy.
During his career, in the days before the 'Celtic Tiger', Paul Fagan saw many Irish companies struggle and realised that in most cases it was that the Business Owners were too busy working on the day-to-day activities and not able to spend time growing the business.
Paul Fagan is a Certified Business Coach. He is recognised as an expert in Franchising and is also a board member of the Irish Franchise Association.
ActionCOACH Ireland now has a team of 18 Irish Business Coaches - located nationwide.

Paul Fagan’s Vision for ActionCOACH Business Coach Ireland
In Ireland, Paul Fagan has two main goals for ActionCOACH Business Coaching Ireland:
1. Our long term goal is that every business in Ireland has a Certified Business Coach, just as they have an accountant and a solicitor. Remember Bill Gates once had a goal that there would be a computer on every desk in every business and home. This offers prospective Franchisees a unique Irish Franching Opportunity to start their Business Coaching Career.
2. Help Irish SMEs grow into larger and more sustainable companies which will support local communities.
ActionCOACH helps Irish Business Owners in many areas but the top six areas are:
1. Sales and marketing: how to grow and sustain business
2. Cash-flow Management: how to understand and manage cash-flow
3. Team Building: how to hire, train, motivate and retain great team members
4. Systemise the Business: how to put effective systems in place
5. Time Management: how to prioritise workload
6. Accountability: encouraging staff to take ownership and be accountable for results

Some examples of how ActionCOACH has helped Improve the Performances of Irish Businesses - illustrates the success of our systems
Client Increased sales from €600,000 to over €5 million in 4 years and increased employees from 14 to 44 members of staff.
Client increased profits from €20,000 to €200,000 in 12 months.

In Ireland 66% of small businesses will fail in their first 5 years, of the 34% that survive during this initial period - 66% of these will fail in the next 5 years. There are many reasons why businesses fail in Ireland, the main reasons include:
- Poor cash-flow management
- Lack of skills and business knowledge within the organisation
- Absence of planning, direction and accountability
- Reluctance on behalf of the business owners to seek outside help in a timely manner
- Stress from all of the above leading to burn-out and business breakdown
Our recent client Survey shows that only 21% of our clients hold a Business Related degree – therefore almost 80% of Business Owners have no formal business training and in this current economic climate – now more than ever before - they need our help. Our statistics also show that almost 40% of our clients are in business less than 10 years, they have no experience of trading in a recession and need our help to change and adapt in order to survive in these changed circumstances. Having a Business Coach is now no longer a luxury – it is essential for the survival of all SME’s.
