At this risk of sounding a bit pompus, I decided that this year I wanted to give something back to the profession that has put food on my table these past ten years. I have joined the Communication Committee of the Association for Coaching (AC).
I attended my first meeting in London last week, and had a great time – thanks everyone!
The ACs flagship event of the year is the annual conference which this year is themed “Going Global”.
Here’s what it says on the website:
‘Professional Coaching comes of age’
‘Going Global 2010’ will expand our thinking and build upon the principles and cornerstone of coaching as the profession, organisations, leaders and their people emerge from a significantly challenging time.’
Following the success of past Association for Coaching (AC) conferences, this 4th International conference being held in London on the 11th and 12th March 2010 at the 4.5 star Victoria Park Plaza, will celebrate where coaching is now at – emerging into a truly global profession.
Going Global 2010 promises some of the most powerful and challenging speakers in coaching, while giving you the opportunity to master your coaching skills and connect with peers and other movers and shakers of the coaching world – whether you are an experienced professional coach, a buyer or sponsor of coaching, a leader looking to advance your coaching skills and professional development, or an organisation using internal/external coaching for executive /staff development.
Feedback from past delegates (all previous AC conferences have sold out) has shown that this bi-annual event is known to provide a stimulating and challenging learning environment, that connects the industry, and is both fun and inspiring. We look forward to seeing you there!
“Going Global 2010 will hallmark where coaching has now moved to in our evolutionary growth – one that is credible, collaborative and purposeful – and is starting to make a greater difference in the world in which we live/work!”
– Katherine Tulpa, CEO, Association for Coaching
Unfortuantely a clash of schedules prevents me attending this year, but I’m happy to chat to anyone trying to decide whether or not to attend
