    What our Alumni say

    "The facilitators were flexible, on task, reliable, timely, professional but also down to earth. They led us well, and in effect were the best role models to a group of aspiring coaches. Everybody was treated equally, and different personalities were catered for seamlessly; we were neither judged nor assumed, we were known and respected, we were challenged and encouraged, loved and nurtured."
    - Julie Phillips, ICF Certified Coach

Thank you!" - Shane Hastie, Global Delivery Lead, SoftEd, ICF Certified Coach
