Kevin Riley of ActionCOACH Warwick, who coaches businesses across Warwick, Leamington Spa and Banbury, dedicated several hours a week to struggling SMEs during lockdown.

As a business growth specialist, Kevin supports his business owner clients on improving their productivity and efficiency.

With the pandemic placing extra strain on all businesses - in some cases drastically increasing demand and for others navigating a downturn and furlough - the team’s services have been more crucial than ever before.

“In the three-months following the first lockdown, 26 of our clients experienced their best-ever trading history. To see this success during one of the most testing times businesses have had to face in over a decade is superb. We’re ready to support clients to end the year on a high note, as well as starting 2021 with a bang,” said Kevin.

The work of Kevin and his team led to him being nominated for a ‘Community Impact’ award by the British Franchising Association.

The awards are sponsored by HSBC and recognise those that have put the business community above self-interest.

Kevin said, “We would love to bring this national award back to our local area.

Supporting more than 753 local companies with strategy sessions, online webinars and guest speakers from around the world, we think it would be great to receive votes from our local area to help boost the final result which closes today.

The deadline for votes is today (Thursday, November 26).

The winner will be announced on Monday (November 30) during the HSBC British Franchise Awards Ceremony.
