Damion Wonfor, Programme Leader
“I am passionate about role modelling coaching when I deliver our courses. This means that at their heart our programmes are both relational and challenging. They provide you with a safe space to explore who you are as a coach and the art of coaching – so you can become an exceptional practitioner, fit for the world of work today and tomorrow.
I will bring a high degree of calm presence, support and challenge to help you get the most from your training with us.”
