Do you know a coaching champion who goes over and above their job role? Have they had a significant impact on your’s or someone else's life? Have they been the driving force in the introduction of a coaching and mentoring initiative?
Now is the time to show your appreciation for all they do. Help us celebrate and reward their outstanding work and nominate them for the CAKE People Development Coaching Champion Award.
The CAKE People Development showpiece annual event, The Coaching Conversation conference is seen as highly inspirational within the coaching community, and this year it will be held at Newmarket Racecourse, on Thursday 29th of November.
The principal aim of the award is to raise the profile of coaching and mentoring and the role it plays in transforming individuals and businesses alike. Our previous winner Martin Bull attributes coaching to the success of his apprenticeship programmes.
Margaret Burnside, Director at CAKE People Development, said
“I am pleased to announce nominations for this year's Awards open. This is a significant year for us as we introduce our second award, The Best Coaching and Mentoring Initiative Award.
Our awards are a unique opportunity for the regions’ L&D/HR professionals and business leaders to reward and recognise the excellent coaching and mentoring happening within their organisations."
Martin Bull - Dispensing Systems Development Manager & Global Valve Systems Expert at RPC UCP Zeller Plastik and last year’s winner of the coaching champion award said “I was delighted to receive the award. I credit my development journey to Steve Millbank, Head of Leadership Development at CAKE. He ignited my passion for coaching and L&D when I attended a programme he ran about four years ago.
It was an honour to have my work and my passion for coaching and mentoring recognised beyond the workplace. It’s truly gratifying and a great feeling.”
He continued, “I liked that the award is a showcase for the full spectrum of coaching and mentoring. I was disappointed I wasn’t able to attend the conference in person, but my colleague accepted the award on my behalf and was blown away by the amazing work other coaches are undertaking. He learnt a great deal form the day.”
In line with CAKE People Development values; passion, excellence, integrity and making a difference, we would like to stress that we welcome nominations on behalf of qualified, non-qualified, team leaders, supervisors, managers, teachers, tutors and anyone who supports people to achieve their goals.
Promote the people who tirelessly champion coaching and mentoring and have made a difference to you.
