The Professional Certificate in Coaching

"A truly transformative experience"

This is a very well run, demanding and rewarding programme. The discussions and reflections on executive coaching with participants from many other industries and the practices of different coaching techniques have had a deep impact on my perspective on my client work as management consultant.
