Celebrating International Coaching Week with the Launch of Heartland’s Speakers Bureau


This first week of May (April 29 – May 5) is International Coaching Week and we invite you to celebrate by sharing the gift, and the magic of coaching!  We know that coaching is a powerful tool to promote full-on engagement in business and in life.  Our vision is that others throughout our region and beyond, will experience the power of the Heartland Coaches – coaches who are committed to upholding professional standards and to gaining knowledge and skills through our learning events.

In celebration of Coaching Week ICF Heartland is launching the first ever ICF Heartland Coaches Speakers Bureau.  The purpose of this new offering is to share the strengths of our talented coaches across the Heartland, and help businesses see the value of coaching through our speaking engagements. Nearly 30 members have submitted topics to speak to the community. We see the Speakers Bureau raising awareness of the power of coaching, and providing value to the recipients in the topic presented. The Speaker’s Bureau Web Page is up - check out our talented speakers for your next event!


In celebration of Coaching week and throughout the month of May, we are asking all 139 of our coaches and affiliate members to be involved getting the word out on the new speakers bureau!  It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

  1. Tweet, Post, Link In, and let your network know about the power of coaching. ICF Global offers a weekly email of article links that can be reposted with your own personal comments.

  2. “Like” articles from ICF Global and from the coaches you follow on line.

  3. Invite your network to use the new Heartland Speaker’s Bureau and “find a coach” on ICF Heartland’s Coach Finder page.

We are part of a great profession that is helping to transform lives, and ultimately, the planet.  Let’s share that as often as we can, especially now, as we celebrate Coaching Week in a world that will greatly benefit from our work. Be sure and read the ICF Global discussion about the future of coaching. Join the conversation.

Some exciting things are happening!
