Presented by Valerie Taylor

As a professional coach you have many concerns; building and sustaining a client base, appropriate pricing, market positioning, time management, social media strategy, technological proficiency, just to name a few!

But as a professional coach, you are so much more than just a business person. One of the cornerstones of coaching is to be fully available to your clients, to serve, embrace and yes, love the people who seek you out. You can study business, study coaching theory and models, read books, watch podcasts and Ted talks and spend a literal fortune paying other coaches to ensure your “success”.

This presentation will take a different approach. Valerie’s goal is to inspire you to continue doing your own work and by doing so, fully and continually, become even more inspiring to and for your clients. Will her talk generate ideas you can use with your clients? Yes, but it will also help you ask the valuable questions you need to ask to truly sustain yourself in your chosen profession.
