Our annual CPD event and gathering: ‘Deepening Your Practice’

16th July 2021


“This is the power of gathering: it inspires us, delightfully, to be more hopeful, more joyful, more thoughtful: in a word, more alive.”

— Alice Waters


Since launching our training courses in transformational coaching, our intention has been to hold an annual event where our alumni can come back together to share experiences and stories, and reconnect with our team and each other. We are calling this a gathering as we are aiming to create an intimate and impactful event that reinforces both our ethos and the values we express through our work in developing coaches.

On 16 July 2021, we will be holding our next CPD event for our alumni and other professional coaches, ‘Deepening Your Practice.’

This year the theme is ‘The Dynamics of Team Coaching.’ Our theme reflects the enquiries and questions raised by our Alumni during the past year in terms of their transition into group and team coaching, and aims to support those seeking development to support their practice.

This event will be online following feedback and the success of last year’s CPD day.

Our aim is to provide a virtual learning event that supports your professional development and your coaching practice, whilst continuing to build a network of professional coaches who can share experience and expertise in support of each other, the clients and organisations they serve.

“Excellent facilitation of the sessions. All the session hosts had so much to share about their topics. I loved all the sessions I went to, learnt a lot and felt really empowered and inspired to put my learning back into practice. It was also great to re-connect and connect with other coaches and immerse myself in the day. There were lots of opportunity to speak in small groups. The whole event flowed really well in the virtual environment we were working in. Such a well thought out, well planned and well executed day. I felt so resourced when I left the day. Thank you.”
