 Metaphor Magic in Coaching – Lily Seto, MA, PCC, CEC, AoCS
Metaphors are a powerful way to work with our coaching clients. Using metaphors, clients can access another part of the brain and are encouraged to think in a different way.

Join Lily Seto, as she introduces you to a new coaching tool called the Metaphor Magic Box. Learn how you can use this tool in your sessions to invite your clients to explore unconscious meaning of chosen symbols, and see a different perspective.

In this workshop, you will experience a demonstration using a Metaphor Magic Box and then there will be a debrief and a conversation on how to use the metaphors effectively. You will also be invited to use your Metaphor Magic Box to explore one of your own topics. At the end of the session, each participant will have a Metaphor Magic Box to take home.

Networking for Coaches – An Essential Skill – Sue Maitland PCC
Do you dread networking events? Have you ever deliberately arrived late so you don’t have to talk to many people and then left as soon as possible after the speaker? Do you know that you really should do more networking and yet you resist, or perhaps you just don’t know where the best places would be for you to meet people?

Join Speaker, Workshop Leader and ICF Accredited PCC Coach Sue Maitland as she helps you see networking in a completely different light and develop a strategy that will help you plan your networking and show up confidently at networking events feeling completely natural and authentic.

Topics covered in this workshop include positive reframing of networking, clarifying your objectives, defining your ideal connection, where to network, Sue’s Ultimate Plan for your networking activities, great conversation starters, insider tips, your 30 second intro and FAQs.

Invest an afternoon with Sue to enhance your networking capabilities and it could result in lifelong benefits in both your personal and professional life
