The Growth Coach is pleased to announce the winner of the International Coach of the Year; Santiago Garcia – The Growth Coach and Master Franchisor of Spain. 

“The caliber of the coaches who were recognized this year is outstanding. Having tenured coaches, many of who met five and 10 year milestones this year, who are willing to give back to the brand and work with other coaches while making a difference in their own communities says a lot about The Growth Coach. I think I speak for everyone in The Growth Coach network when I say how proud we all are of all the award recipients,” The Growth Coach President Lisa Hudson said.
