The Achievement Centre Franchisee - Alan Bottomley


Feb 07, 2011

Alan Bottomley operates ‘The Achievement Centre – Your Ambition’ from his home city of Etobicoke, Ontario. Alan is a passionate person who finds his work to be extremely rewarding.   

For Alan, the key to his success is being focused on adding value to organizations by applying his experience and training to several areas of business.  He spends his days assisting businesses to improve in the areas of strategic planning, leadership development and training, and executive business coaching.  He also provides general day-to-day business advisory services, administers organization and individual assessments, facilitation services for senior management and company workshops, and retirement planning to business owners.  

Alan Bottomley graduated from the University of Toronto in 1974 as a young, aspiring engineer (BASc) with a specialty in geophysics. However, after considering opportunities to explore the NW Territories looking for oil and gas or become a famous weatherman, he switched gears and joined Price Waterhouse (PW) to become a Chartered Accountant (CA).

Alan’s extensive experience makes him well suited to help clients through The Achievement Centre. Alan spent 33 years at PW (now called PricewaterhouseCoopers - PwC) and was a partner for 21 years. During that time he was exposed to hundreds of different companies - all sizes, private and public, all major industries. Alan developed a very broad and deep business perspective. He also held a variety of senior management roles at PwC (office managing partner, national HR partner, management committees) in his last 15 years. He still consults as an "executive coach" for many of the firm's partners. 

Alan now spends all of his time doing business consulting in the areas he loves - helping people and businesses identify and achieve their life’s ambitions. Using The Achievement Centre's methodologies and programs, Alan helps leaders in businesses to achieve results. 

The Achievement Centre provides organizations with the tools and opportunities to develop staff in the areas of leadership, sales development, organizational development, and business transition coaching.    The Achievement Centre helps clients across Canada, the Caribbean, and the Middle East.
