Coach-a-thon is a uniquely West Australian event that sees hundreds of people participate in a frenzy of free, professional coaching.
Only held in WA, this unique celebration of International Coach Week 2010 allows individuals and businesses to try out coaching for personal and professional growth.
Jack Busch, president of the WA International Coach Federation Chapter, says, ”One of the best ways to find out about coaching is to experience it. That is why, in Western Australia, experienced coaches will be volunteering their time to give people a complimentary coaching session.
“We do encourage participants to make a donation to the Heart Foundation as we are keen to support the Foundations’ wonderful work to reduce the incidence and impact of cardiovascular disease.”
Coach Week will be held in the CBD in the foyer of the QV1 building May 25-27.
Coaching is growing in momentum throughout the world and its effectiveness as a development tool is backed up by many studies. A recent Harvard Business review survey indicated that organisations are engaging coaches to develop potential and facilitate transition. There are a number of different types of coaching including Executive, Business and Life coaching and WA has a growing body of professionals working in these areas.

International Coach Federation Australasia Coach Week
International Coach Federation Australasia (ICFA) Coach Week is an annual weeklong celebration of the coaching profession, this year to be held during the week 24 to 29 May.
Originally founded in 1999 by ICF member Jerri N. Udelson, MCC, Coach Week is a designated time each year for coaches and clients to educate the general public about the value of working with a professional coach and to acknowledge the results and progress made through the coaching process.
During this extended commemoration, coaches around the world offer a variety of activities and pro bono services in their local communities to share what coaching has the ability to do.
10 local areas around Australia and New Zealand will be holding events and activities to celebrate Coach Week commencing 24 May 2010.
