As a member of Conversations Among Masters (CAM), the premier coaching collaborative for master-level coaches, I have been asked to become an official partner of The World Business and Executive Coach Summit (WBECS). While this is not my typical blog post, there is value for anyone in the coaching profession working with business, executives and leaders. Also, coaching skills and orientation is extremely valuable for non-coaches who are seeking to support their colleagues and employees in increasing performance and satisfaction, and I’m confident that there is enough wisdom in this conference for you too!
As you may know, WBECS is the largest annual coaching event now — a global, online conference featuring the top 25 luminaries and thought leaders in the business coaching industry delivering sales-pitch-free, rich content to thousands of coaches that can interact with them live. I will be attending and invite you to join me if you want to learn from the best of the best. In fact, I’ve already sampled two of the pre-Summit sample sessions and I must tell you that were impeccable and valuable. In just 30 minutes I received real value, not just a teaser. And there’s still time to sign up for most of these free opportunities!

Check out the pre-Summit series, May 1-31, 2012, which offers those complimentary opportunities to sample the sessions of the full Summit before registering! The full Summit runs June 14-29, 2012. Again, I was already very impressed! Each taster session is 15-30 minutes long, and contains highly-targeted, world-class content — like an online version of a TED talk!
Last year, more than 7000 coaches from 129 countries participated in the first WBECS conference to hear the highest caliber coaches delivering amazing content WITHOUT ANY SALES PITCHES to live audiences that can interact with them via easy-to-use webinar technology. Does it get any better than that?
This year, WBECS continues to raise the bar for the whole coaching profession with more fantastic presenters including:
* Dr. Marshall Goldsmith – voted the world’s #1 leadership thinker by Harvard Business Review;
* Sir John Whitmore – the pre-eminent thinker in leadership and organizational change;
* Prof. Vijay Govindarajan – voted the world’s #1 strategic thinker by Harvard Business Review;
* Verne Harnish – named one of the “Top 10 Minds in Small Business” by Fortune magazine;
The full roster of speakers and presentations can be found through the link above.
I’ll be tuning in this year to learn about highly effective coaching, sales, integration of leadership and business development, global coaching business strategy, client retention, social media, authentic leadership and much more.
Want to join me? During the Summit, we can ask questions of these phenomenal presenters real-time and interact with other attendees. Members’ forums encourage networking while shared Google docs enable collaboration.
