About this event

International Coaching Week (2022 ICW) is an annual world-wide celebration of professional coaches and the growth and impact of our industry. This year's theme is “Reimagine the Future". It's appropriate because coaching can help us deal with challenging times in our personal and professional lives!

This free event will provide members and guest coaches with the opportunity to learn from expert panelists on resiliency, burnout and thriving, to share in a peer coaching opportunity, and to network.
