Since we launched The Coaching Conversation 4 years ago, we continue to strive to make each event better than the last.
This year is no exception. This year we are putting you in charge! You are responsible for your own learning.
Our theme is ‘Closing the Development Gap.’ We’ll explore how coaching and mentoring bridge the gap between informal learning, formal training and performance at work.
We have designed an amazing conference, putting you in control of your learning and takeaways. We will provide the ingredients for you to create your own unique conference experience.
Our workshop/sessions and conversations will be thought-provoking, to challenge your thinking and lead to action.
We have a great team on hand to ensure you get the most out of your day and here are a few tips to help get you thinking:
Go with the flow – we have designed the day to help you find the time and space to connect and have conversations
Don’t just go with what you know – challenge yourself on topics that interest you but you might not know too much about
Breaking up’s not hard to do – if attending with colleagues, try splitting up to gain different experiences and compare notes – you’ll meet others you might not have connected with otherwise
Use the two feet rule – if a session isn’t working for you, join another one… it's OK
Get involved – participation is key, it will have such a positive effect on your learning and outcomes
Trading places – teaching and learning aren’t fixed roles, be prepared to change your hat
Interesting and unexpected things are likely to happen but the most exciting aspect of our event is always the power of bringing together a group of like-minded people, all on equal terms – a real-life example of inclusion and diversity, connecting for peer-to-peer learning and sharing ideas. Our experience has taught us that the sum of knowledge in the audience is greater than the sum of knowledge of the people on stage.
See you there!
