Meet Coach Marc...
For nearly 25 years Marc Desormeaux has successfully assisted hundreds of individual men and women in the USA and Canada to make changes that Unlock their Potential! He is a 20-year Certified Business Coach focusing on clarity, curiosity, empathy, and effective listening. He has a passion for bridging the gap between where you are, and where you desire to be.
Beginning nearly 30 years ago, Marc's first entrepreneurial adventure was as an Owner/Partner of a boat brokerage – Lighthouse Yachts. He learned (the hard way) the ups & downs of independent business ownership and “sold” that business (gave it away LOL) to become an early adopter as Franchisee/Operating Partner in a retail franchise system from Australia called Cash Converters. With success, he went on to lead their corporate/franchisee partnership chain and became VP of Franchise Business Development.
In 2001, Marc entered the world of business coaching as a VP of Development and in 2004 was one of the initial group of executives that started FocalPoint Coaching in Las Vegas, Nevada. As an initial builder, Marc had his hands in every piece of the puzzle as the franchise took hold in the United States – he was an executive in development, training and support, as well as a key contributor to the strategic direction of the company.
By 2008, Marc became the President and Master Franchisee for all of Canada for FocalPoint as well as continued to advise with FocalPoint International USA. He continues in that role today in a scaled-back capacity as a consultant with FranChoice.
Marc’s business ownership, franchisee and master franchisee ownership, franchise executive experience coupled with coaching certifications, a DISC behavioral and Navigational Conversations certification make him an excellent support and resource for aspiring business owners to confidently clarify, identify, investigate and successfully move forward in building the business and lifestyle of their dreams!
