On the weekend of International Coaching Week in May, 6 experienced professional coaches headed to central London for the 20th OPC event, with umbrellas in hand ready to offer people a safe shelter, both actually and metaphorically, to invite people from all walks of life to reflect, explore their values and situation, often leading to them making brave commitments to overcome a barrier in their lives or take further steps to achieving their goals.

Did the rain and cold get in the way of our passion and drive to inspire through speed coaching?…hell no! It only provided a perfect backdrop to support and witness the people we connected with to wake up to who they really are and who they want to become.

No. of people connected with: 81

The coaching was very useful and Insightful. I feel more confident. It was my 1st ever coaching I’ve had and it was powerful, especially given the weather.”

My OPC got to nub of the issue. I have a job interview that the coaching could make a difference to. It’s such a lovely and generous thing to offer people. Kindness doesn’t happen enough.”
