Maumee, Ohio (PressExposure) April 27, 2011 -- Local businesses in northwest Ohio face the same challenges as global corporations like Libbey and Microsoft. Until recently, larger businesses had an advantage that was not available to small and medium size businesses.
"Large corporations can bring in consultants to look at the business and identify ways to improve operations, increase profits and be more competitive. I want to provide that same advantage to small and medium size businesses in northwest Ohio," explains Patrick Good, AdviCoach of NW Ohio.
Good actually goes beyond consulting which basically ends when a proposed plan is delivered to a client. As an AdviCoach, Good works with businesses to identify strategic and tactical challenges. Good and his clients then work as a team to set and achieve objectives required for success.
Businesses in northwest Ohio will have an opportunity to meet with Good and learn more about his business coaching firm at three upcoming events:
Holland-Springfield Chamber of Commerce Day of Coaching - May 3. The first five businesses to register with the Chamber will receive a free one-hour session with Good.
Findlay Annual Business Fair - May 19 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. Coaching workshops will be held at the Findlay Inn
Perrysburg Business-to-Business Expo - June 14. (TBD)
"Business coaching is much more important to small and medium size businesses than to a large corporation. A company like Microsoft can make a mistake and just go back to the drawing board. Businesses I work with just don't have that luxury," said Good.
As an AdviCoach, Good deploys "Rapid Impact Strategies" that can be implemented immediately to increase Return On Investment (ROI) in 60 to 90 days. Additional strategies are typically developed to sustain success and continued growth.
Good brings his clients the benefits of 23 years of diverse business management experience, including 10 years as a sales executive with Honeywell International. He also worked for several other major corporations in the areas of manufacturing, management and purchasing. He has a bachelor degree in Engineering and an MBA, both from The University of Toledo.
"Working for large corporations was a great experience but I always wanted to run my own business. As an AdviCoach and owner of PAG Associates, Inc., I now have that opportunity and I can use everything I learned about world class business processes to help companies in northwest Ohio be more successful." Good said.
