A Celebration of International Coaching Week!

International Coaching Week is an annual celebration and this year we are focussing on helping the business community experience coaching. Please join us Thursday, May 2nd from 6-8:30 at the DoubleTree by Hiton Hotel Irvine Spectrum to celebrate professional coaching and explore the power it has to transform organizations. We will be having a panel of three guests: a CEO, a Master Certified Coach and a leadership & development expert who have experienced the transformational power of coaching in organizations.

If you are curious about professional coaching and how it can impact your organization, or you have your own story to tell about coaching, this is the opportunity to learn and share. The panel discussion will be interactive with Q & A, and you will have the opportunity to mingle with coaches and business leaders throughout the evening.

Our Guest Panelists:
