Advancing Frontiers in Coaching: Integration | Culture | Transformation 

Exploring the edges of what’s possible—from professional practice to a way of being—to push our thinking, extend our capabilities, and co-create new research, theories and approaches.

A global gathering of coach scholars and practitioners, featuring international keynote speakers who are breaking boundaries in the field.

Join our learning community of professional coaches, academics, researchers, coach educators and trainers, scholar practitioners, and members of the broader talent development community where we’ll explore and critically examine the central question: How do we move towards the edge of our understanding of what coaching is, and co-create what it could be?
