New York, NY (PRWEB) November 13, 2014
New platform, CoachMarket, launched today with the mission of connecting individuals and organizations with a trusted network of hand-selected business coaches and corporate training consultants. Designed to aggregate, curate and simplify the process of searching for on demand talent, the company is the number one way to access a wide range of coaching professionals to help bring business executives and organizations to the next level of success.
Currently, $55 billion is spent annually on corporate training, coaching and employee learning and development. There are over 350,000 independent coaches and consultants who serve this market, and because of this fragmentation it is challenging for customers to find the right coach to fit their needs. CoachMarket aims to streamline the process of searching and securing a trusted executive coach or corporate trainer through their platform on which businesses can hand-select an individual, or request that CoachMarket recommend one for them based on their needs. Customers get direct access to the top coaches without having to pay the markup associated with large consulting firms.
The platform is also designed to help the coaches build their practice by providing a qualified customer pipeline and business management functionality for messaging, scheduling, pricing, payments and contracts.
“Our Mission is to make it easier and more cost effective for our customers to access the top coaches and consultants by combining the benefits of the E-commerce marketplace model with a deep understanding of coaching and training,” stated Glenn Laumeister, Founder and CEO of CoachMarket. “Either you went to a large consulting firm and paid a huge mark up and had to take whatever consultant they assigned to you, or you had to ask every person in your network for a referral that met your needs.”
CoachMarket freelancers are generally business professionals with over 10 years of experience who have also trained as coaches or training consultants and work full time in the field and have large-company experience in industries ranging from technology, management consulting, fashion, finance, publishing, law and advertising. This experience enables the coaches to deliver immediate value add to clients who don’t want to spend time educating the consultant on their industry.
