The History of Our Alliance
History – Back in 2004, John Deagan was an independent business coach from Canton, Ohio who was looking for an association of business coaches who were sharing best practices, coaching tools, programs, support, and friendships. John could not find such an organization, so after receiving encouragement from his friends and family, John created the Professional Business Coaches Alliance (PBCA) which began operations in 2005. At that time, John was a highly successful business coach, and he had not intended for the PBCA to become his full-time job.
But early on, the PBCA had some incredible member-coaches who were very active in helping each other, and John’s vision changed to “making the PBCA North America’s premier alliance of independent business coaches.”
With the help of a talented team of colleagues, John created the “PBCA Business Coach Certification Program” to help experienced businesspeople become professional business coaches and launch their own business coaching practices. The PBCA business coach certification programs are world-class and among the most comprehensive training programs available.
With 14 years of being home to business coaches around North America, the PBCA is now home to several of the top business coaches in the world.
Our membership includes top-producing coaches, world-class coaching firms, several published authors, international speakers, and several highly successful business consultants who have added business coaching to their suite of services. Our membership also includes brand new coaches, and everything in-between. No matter where you are in your journey, you will find plenty of people where you are and where you’d like to be!
Our current president, Jon Denney, is a “product” of the PBCA. He became a professional business coach through the PBCA certification program back in 2008. Through years of experience and continued education, Jon has become a highly regarded and established business coach in his own right. Jon is a published author, national speaker, and lead-trainer in the PBCA Certification Courses. By the end of training week, you will know him well!
If you are serious about becoming a professional business coach and if the PBCA seems like a great fit for you, please email Jon directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out the information on the “Contact” page of this website. We are looking forward to talking with you!
