Abode Heat and their ActionCOACH experience

Ben Hodges, Business Development Director at Abode Heat, talked to us about the impact coaching has had on the business.

Growth Stories

Based in Bodmin, Abode Heat has 12 years industry experience, specialising in heat pumps & heat storage. They first experienced ActionCOACH as part of Santander’s early response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which gave businesses access to planning workshops designed to help them navigate the uncertain months ahead.

Santander gave us access to a programme which appeared to be focused on delivering real solutions in a challenging time. The 90 initial day planning session was an excellent introduction into a series of tangible, outcome focused goals which reinforced what we were doing already. At the time, that was hugely reassuring. We’ve since invested our own time and money in grabbing the growth opportunity that ActionCOACH can support and guide us toward.

Working with their ActionCOACH, Duncan McKechnie, has given them renewed focus and an alignment as a team to work towards the same shared goals and are on target to exceed their business plan projections.

Ben would encourage other business owners to view working with ActionCOACH as in investment, not a cost, in taking their business to the next stage. Watch the video above to hear more on their experience.
