Marc is a “serial entrepreneur” who’s enjoyed the last 20 years in the business of Business Coaching and Training – supporting leaders and managers to bridge the gap between where they are, and where they want to be. Marc was also an original builder of FocalPoint in 2004, beginning the business of helping people to become successful business coaches in the United States before developing FocalPoint Canada in 2008.
FocalPoint Canada is a Coaching & Training organization whose passion is unlocking human potential. Our mission is to enable as many people as possible to Be More, Do More and Have More in their professional and personal lives.
We do this primarily by coaching and teaching owners, leaders and managers how to re-think and re-engineer their businesses, how to Coach for Performance, by coaching and training more effective Communication – both behaviorally and conversationally, and by supporting leaders and managers to make a shift towards a 21st Century Leadership style.
After a successful 31 year career with some of Canada’s most notable enterprises, I began my business coaching career in 2008 and have had the privilege of working with business owners, including sole proprietors, entrepreneurs and leaders of multi-million dollar corporations. I have gained more than 10,000 hours of coaching experience over the last 10 years, many of those hours through 1-on-1 coaching session. My passion is all about having my clients achieve the goals they may have never dreamed possible. I’m inspired by clients that have vision and are looking for a roadmap to success that they can truly measure and feel great about.
Thirty one years in Corporate Canada provided unquestionable value and experience in key areas including development of strategic thinking, developing successful and profitable products/services, leadership skills, sales and business development. Every client has unique opportunities and challenges to pursue. This is where my coaching and real business world experience provides an effective foundation to work with virtually any business looking for another level of success.
I am a graduate of Concordia University in Montreal and have served as a Board member of several organizations including Vertigo Mystery Theatre, Santa’s Secret Service, Crowchild Hockey Association, Silver Springs Golf and Country Club where I was President for 2 years, and the Calgary Executive Association, where I am the currently the association’s President.
As a business owner, who do you talk to or turn to? Who holds you accountable to yourself, your goals & aspirations, to your team, your customers and your family? Why do the best athletes in the world, with exceptional talent and proven success, insist on having a Coach? What about Fortune 500 business leaders, with extraordinary resumes, why do they have trusted business advisers at their side? The answer is because they see the value and understand the benefits of a coaching relationship and had a vision and desire to be the best and they took the necessary steps to maximize their true potential!
I love what I do and take immense pride in doing it. My 33 years of proven leadership and turnaround experience have ranged from the delicate to the bold. My leadership journey began at the age of 13 managing a concession stand and grew to leading teams of 4,000 as a Senior Vice President with a Global Fortune 500 company. I am comfortable with conversations and taking action around sales, marketing, operations, strategy development, financial performance, customer service, client retention and team development. I have worked with teams all over the world and have had the good fortune to continually grow in my leadership skills through access to fantastic mentors and coaches.
