Mancheshare are delighted to announce that ActionCoach Bolton have sponsored their 'Business Coaching' pages and online advice forum.  The Bolton based coaching company have been supporting businesses in their growth plans for a number of years with huge success.

Mancheshare is part of the GB Shared group of companies who aim to stimulate local economies at local level through sharing and collaborative working.  GB Shared is now live in 3 counties with further growth predicted as the sharing continues from one county to the next.  The first platform Lancashare, now boasts hundreds of sharing businesses including 3 councils and all 3 Lancashire Chambers of Commerce standing in unity for their county.  The model of sharing has captured the attention of hundreds of businesses from across 3 counties with the aim of county-wide collaboration which saw them approved as Northern Powerhouse Partners in their second year and be nominated for 15 awards thus far.

GB Shared founder, Lisa Edge said, 'We started sharing in Lancashire first with Lancashare, almost 4 years on, hundreds are sharing their resources, jobs, advice and information, the amount of centralised opportunities pooled by our business communities is incredible.  We've measured our impact since day one, we can see the volume of jobs being shared, the events, tenders, funding, products and services, suppliers and more, all being kept local, but what we're most blown away by is the collective impact of that sharing.  

Lancashire businesses through sharing are now creating local supply chains, positively impacting our carbon footprint, they're sharing jobs which impacts our unemployment levels, and they're further helping us to embed social values, be as collaborative as we can be and keeping more money and opportunities in our county.'

We are delighted that ActionCoach Bolton have joined us as members and sponsors of coaching on our Mancheshare site, they have been a lifeline to so many businesses pre and post pandemic, we know they'll help our Mancheshare members too to grow and develop which in turns stimulates the Manchester economy, they're a perfect fit.

MD of ActionCoach Bolton, Paul Limb, said:  “We are absolutely delighted to be the new sponsors of the Business Coaching Forum for Mancheshare, as well as extending our membership of Lancashare. As a Lancashire lad, it’s really important to me for ActionCOACH Bolton to support local businesses in Lancashire and Greater Manchester as they are the lifeblood of our economy, and we aim to extend that support through our sponsorship of Mancheshare and contributions to the coaching forum.”
