  • First job, Lab Tech at the Belfast City Hospital, specializing in Hematology.
  • (Note: worst subjects in high school; Math and Science – wrong job!)
  • Interests: Sports, especially football (soccer), hiking, golf, reading, swimming, visiting new countries, mentoring young entrepreneurs.
  • Board member for Impact Society, a non-profit organization that helps junior high students build confidence, character and integrity.
  • Married to Fran (37 years and counting), also blessed with two wonderful children, Jennifer and Andrew.


Les Hewitt 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 Hewitt 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. Les Hewitt is 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. It contains exclusive interviews with 30 business masters and personal development experts. He now includes video tutorials, and short high-impact lessons on a wide range of topics.

I have been doing one on one coaching with Les for over 5 years and I have no intention of stopping. I have coached hundreds of entrepreneurs myself, so I know a lot of the tricks and know who is the “real deal” in advice-giving. Les has helped me with several decisions that have not only been worth hundreds of thousands of dollars to me but also helped me avoid making bad choices that would have made me steer into the rocks. Very few other people who call themselves coaches have the experience that Les was able to bring into my key decisions.

In just over a year with Les Hewitt’s coaching, I have transformed my business and personal life. I wrote and published my first book, Easy Money, ended a commitment that was demanding more than 200 days of my year, and launched a revolutionary digital product that has huge potential for creating passive income. Les has helped me create an exciting future vision for my life. I’m now enjoying a lot more time off, significantly increasing revenues, and doing what I love to do more than ever.

The Power of Focus has turned my life around. I just realized my dream of opening my own recording studio, and my debt burden is almost eliminated. On top of that, I have since met and married the most perfect woman I could ever have hoped to meet. Your ideas on building excellent relationships really do work!
