The Coaching Conversation

Our annual coaching and mentoring conference - The Coaching Conversation, the vision of Margaret Burnside, Director of CAKE People Development, was born from the passion that she has for Coaching and Mentoring.


The idea behind the conference was to open up conversations around the many aspects of coaching and to help business managers and executives understand how to use coaching and mentoring effectively as part of everyday working life. To cut the jargon and make it accessible to all; with an emphasis on how organisations should see coaching practice as part of their business strategy, and not just a ‘nice to have.’


Our passion and aim are to support the region in developing a coaching and mentoring community and  coaching culture that will help organisations build capacity and drive performance excellence with tangible results in both engagement and profit.


Coaching and mentoring have long been recognised as go-to interventions, the evidence base and body of knowledge continue to grow, but we need to embed a coaching culture and keep up momentum.

Each year we endeavour to bring to the region inspirational guest speakers, as well as experts in the coaching and mentoring world, and we will continue to meet and bring like-minded, inspirational people together to support the regions businesses and our coaching community.
