About Coaching Central

 I set up Coaching Central back in May 2017 because  I wanted to network locally with other professional coaches. I also recognised the massive value of getting coaches together to learn, grow and share – amazing things happen as a result! 

Since 2017, our group has grown from just a handful of coaches to having around 20 coaches every month.

Each month features a discussion around coaching, personal development, or business development. This can be from external speakers or coaches from within the group. There are book reviews to encourage our reading and learning, plus we have the odd social to help us get to know each other better!
