He will be operating from his home-office in Brookfield, which is a little village – near Glasgow and will target the Inverclyde and Perthshire regions.
A business owner, Murdoch was introduced to the company by an ActionCOACH Business Coach.
“I got to know a few of the guys at ActionCOACH and was very impressed with the people, the approach and the business tools,” he said. “The idea of making money for myself by helping transform other peoples’ businesses was appealing to me.”
Prior to becoming an ActionCOACH, Murdoch was CEO and shareholder of a local newspaper group. In his previous life, he also sat on the Scottish boards of two national newspaper companies.
“I have set-up three small businesses and have a real understanding of selling,” he said. “I have a strong network within the Scottish marketplace and believe all of this experience in conjunction with the ActionCOACH tool kit will enable me to add value to my clients’ businesses.”
Murdoch is excited about the ActionCOACH opportunity.
“I love business and am interested in my personal development and the ActionCOACH opportunity will help me pursue both,” he said. “I can now do something I believe I will really enjoy; add significant value to the Scottish business community and make a very good living out of that.”
Murdoch is particularly impressed by the ActionCOACH community – the integrity and the “can do it” attitude of its people.
“I think this will be the greatest personal development journey I have ever been on,” he said.
An avid sportsman, Murdoch is a member of his local golf club and helps out with Rugby coaching at his son’s school. He is also a member of his local church and is involved in charitable activities within his local community. Murdoch also belongs to the Inverclyde Chamber of Commerce, the Western Club in Glasgow and the Scottish North American Business Council.
