What I love about the International Coach Guild (ICG) is it gives me an opportunity to connect with other coaches, I get to contribute to the group the things that are really important in my business and in my life and get some ideas and some feedback and really start a conversation with each other and I love that. It’s such an awesome group to be a part of because it’s about people wanting to be the best in our industry and regardless of all the connection I experience and the knowledge that I gain through connecting with my peers it’s even more than that. It’s things like knowing my insurance is taken care of, knowing I can contribute articles to a professional magazine, that’s read by so many people. It’s knowing that there’s the ICG room accessible to us to utilise, there are so many benefits or being part of this group and I’m really proud to be one of the Inaugural Board Members.

I’de just like to say thank you so much International Coach Guild (ICG) for having this outstanding community in which to be a part of. The ICG is a not for profit association, a body of coaches that has been set up by coaches, for coaches and that’s what I love about it.


All the focus is on the community and how we can benefit each other as well as the businesses that we hang out with, as well as the businesses that are aligning themselves with the ICG, for the benefit of coaching, for the benefit of their businesses and for the benefit of setting the highest standards within this community itself.
