Time for Sports at Coulson Organisation!

Back in November Coulson Organisation reported the launch of the Sports Division in the UK after some of the team were taken to Australia to be coached in the new campaign.

Over the last few months, the division has gone from strength to strength, seeing some brilliant new people start with the firm who are now progressing through the Business Advancement Programme. Records are being broken almost on a weekly basis and, Iain Dodds of Coulson Organisation is looking likely to be hitting Assistant Ownership criteria very shortly.

Whilst running the sports division, the organisation, has also continued to represent a number of other clients. As the Sports Division continues to grow and with new clients already in the pipeline, (from 16th July 2012 onwards) the company have officially handed over the Charities division batton to Dave Carruthers of Coulson after he successfully worked through the business advancement programme. He will be running his own office thereafter.

This means that the company will be solely working on behalf of its sporting clients in the North east and will be continuing to represent them at events and within local businesses.

Coulson Organisation is proud on Dave Carruthers on his promotion, and the company is eager to see the results he produces and is looking forward to the next few months in Sports which is going to be huge!

Coulson Organisation- A Personal Experience!

The growth of The Coulson Organisation solely depend upon the development of its people. Without a strong bias towards recruitment, product training, coaching, standards and quality development throughout every level, no company can move forward. Ben Laws, the Managing Director of Coulson Organisation has his own personal experience to narrate to others.

"I came from a background of bar work and office work, I had never represented a company before or even considered that I would be able to sell or promote a client or service, so for me to embark on an interview for a sales and marketing company was a new challenge. However, once I saw the professionalism displayed by the team within the Coulson Organisation, I was impressed, and I felt that if I could learn, I could succeed.

I started working at the Coulson Organisation in December 2005. I spent my first week in an office in Amsterdam which made me realise the scale of the opportunity the company offered. I had no prior experience in the industry but took a lot of confidence from the comprehensive training programme that took me from my first day in the company, through their business development programme, with one to one support and education from the Managing Director and his colleagues. I liked the idea that I could progress at my own rate, and I did not have to wait to get ahead. I found this refreshing after working with so many companies, where you have to spend an arbitrary amount of time before qualified for a promotion.

On top of financial rewards for my own hard work, I was given more opportunities to travel and develop my own skills, with coaching in a live environment by people who had been through the same experiences that I was facing. I was always aware of the fact that I had a comprehensive support of the network to fall back. We travelled frequently to other offices and meetings to learn best practice and improve our skills at every level of the Business Development Programme. Every day was an education, and I still feel I am learning today.

I moved through the promotional structure of the company from the ground level to Ownership within 18 months. Now I have my own company, which is moving from strength to strength with continual support from the Coulson Organisation network. I would never have dreamed when I answered the advertisement that I could have achieved the things I have since I joined the company. Not only have I developed my abilities in management and presentation skills, but as a result of running my own business, I now enjoy a lifestyle  remarkably few people in their fifties, let alone their twenties could hope to have. The opportunity that I was offered and took has changed my life and will continue to do so as we develop both nationally and internationally over the coming years."

Coulson Organisation's BDP experience!

Dave Carruthers, assistant owner, is one of those guys who have progressed through Coulson Organisation's Business Development Programme. He is elated with his Coulson experience and shares his experience...

Having finished university in 2008, I wasn’t 100% certain on which career path I wanted to take. I did know that I wanted a long term stable career in which I could progress and develop my skill set at my own pace whilst actually working my way up through a company.

When I started in June 2008, my main goal was to develop and improve my communication skills and with the coaching and support I received, this didn’t take very long and I was promoted to the Business development in just four weeks.

Over the following two years, I developed my coaching and training skills to pass through levels two and three of the BDP.

I have recently completed stage 4 of the Business Development programme where I have learned all areas of recruitment, administration and finance and have now moved onto the fifth and final stage.

I am very excited about completing the programme and being given the opportunity to manage my own location in the near future.
