Les met his first mentor, speaking legend Jim Rohn, in 1980. Two years later he was hosting seminars and inviting Jim to speak. During the next 12 years Les’s seminar business, Achievers Canada, blossomed to become one of the largest in the country, delivering more than 450 programs to thousands of business leaders and professional salespeople.
During the last two decades Les has spoken around the world and shared the stage with the biggest names in the industry. Acknowledged today for his ability to turn complex challenges into simple solutions, Les is booked by Fortune 100 companies and major business associations. He has a special place in his heart for helping small companies grow and succeed.
Although the seminar business created excellent feedback from those who attended, Les found it difficult to measure long term results. He began researching what it takes to create results that stick. The outcome was a 2 year coaching program for small groups of entrepreneurs and business leaders that consistently helped his clients to double their income and triple their time off.
After more than 30 years in the training industry, Les now coaches several business owners one-on-one. Known by his peers and clients as The Focus Coach, his greatest satisfaction comes from seeing the breakthroughs that his clients create in their personal lives, as much as hearing about their significant business and financial success.
Les’s passion for impacting people with words began as a young boy in Ireland where he dreamed of being an international sports journalist, football being the game he loved most. Today, Les is a prolific author having 6 bestselling books under his belt, including his first title, the #1 New York Times bestseller, The Power of Focus, co-authored with Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen, the famous creators of the Chicken Soup for the Soul® series.
Les has always enjoyed interviewing successful people, digging deep to find out what makes them tick. For years he studied veteran interviewers like Larry King, the renowned CNN host of Larry King Live and many others. The outcome was the creation of The Power of Focus Audio Club, containing exclusive interviews with 30 business masters and personal development experts. He now includes video tutorials, short high-impact lessons on a wide range of topics.
