“What an enriching experience for any coach! The whole process was exceptionally well-led, well thought-through and well-managed. I benefited greatly in deepening my coaching impact, which is and will continue to positively impact my clients. Both group and individual sessions allowed us all to benefit from Hilary and Tracy’s rich value as coaches.  Their rigour also helped us grow accustomed to referring consistently to the PCC markers, which is a great habit to have.  There is not a coach in the world who would not benefit from this programme.”
