On Saturday 17th October a small but mighty Our People’s Coach Street Team of 6, came together in the home of the 2012 Olympic town of London, Stratford, to bring the power of speed coaching to some unsuspecting people. What the team didn’t expect was the huge number of people who couldn’t speak English but wanted to connect. The energy of the area also seem that of struggle, sadness and overwhelm of the people who passed through the town, it’s no wonder as the days getting colder and dark with the change of the season.
It made the impact of the team’s kindness, support and coaching skills even more important with all their interactions.

Just a sample of feedback from the 10 minute coaching sessions…

“The coach was really well trained and ‘saw’ me from the start – it shocked me. He asked good questions and I now know the problem I have” Marco, 30 years old

“That was awesome! The coach had such a positive attitude. She knew what to ask and allowed me to talk about me.” Ivan, 21 years old

“It was good to talk to someone else I should be more pro-active. I felt really comfortable to talk to the coach about a personal topic.” Katerina, 26 years old

“It was nice to have someone to talk to and having a chance to accept my feeling. I now have more confidence in myself.” James, 41 years old
