Chrysalis Partners franchisee Graham Garman helps transform the fortunes of UK small and medium-sized enterprises
Following a successful career in the corporate world and after being made redundant in 2019, Graham Garman decided to look into franchising in order to help business owners transform their companies and drive more success within their organisations.
With over 25 years of coaching experience in sales and marketing, business growth and profitability, Graham is passionate about helping businesses achieve their goals.
He explains: “Throughout my career I’ve helped businesses to overachieve their targets. However, after being made redundant I wanted to find something that gave me more flexibility and the ability to balance my lifestyle around my work.
“Becoming part of Chrysalis Partners has allowed me to be both a successful business coach, as well as being able to enjoy time to myself.”
Chrysalis Partners is the fastest growing coaching and consultancy franchise in the UK, offering business coaching and consultancy to the small and medium-sized enterprise market.
Starting your own business can be daunting, which is why the company offers an inclusive marketing campaign (including 15 appointments with prospects) to get franchisees started, as well as an enhanced support programme that allows franchisees to work alongside a highly experienced coach’s coach for three months to help them win their first clients.
Chrysalis Partners’ model comes with a money-back guarantee on your licence fee, such is its confidence in the systems it offers.
Committed to success
“They’re totally committed to ensuring success for the partners and the value from the training is second to none,” Graham says. “With additional group meetings, Chrysalis encourages you to work together and share successes to broaden your knowledge and leverage one another’s strengths.”
With more than five million SMEs in the UK, demand for Chrysalis Partners’ services is huge. Furthermore, with most new businesses failing in the first few years the requirement for a coach to help steer them to success is greater than ever, particularly during the unprecedented recent challenges faced by the global economy.
“I was extremely worried about what lockdown might mean for business coaching,” Graham says. “However, Chrysalis have been so supportive to all the coaches - they reduced our monthly fees and scheduled regular zoom calls, which made me feel valued.
“We have all had to learn from this new way of working, but from day one Chrysalis were committed to making sure everyone wouldn’t be impacted negatively. I have been lucky and secured three recent deals, but without the extra support from Chrysalis this wouldn’t have been possible.”
New franchisees join a growing community of business professionals, who share their experiences and thoughts on how they’re using the Chrysalis Partners models and strategies to best effect with their clients.
“The incredible support and training provided are world-class,” Graham says. “I’m privileged to be part of the Chrysalis Partners franchise and I would recommend anyone thinking of a career in consulting to use Chrysalis.”
