Coaches Cafe

 ICF Members meet  informally in small group settings for networking, sharing and learning from colleagues.  Cafes are held regularly and most months  a cafe is held in Toronto, Hamilton or other surrounding areas.  Cafes are usually held in a coffee shop and are loosely facilitated. 

  • New Coach Benefits:  learning,  camaraderie, networking 
  • Seasoned Coach Benefits:  connecting with colleagues, sharing best practices, learning


Webinars are held as required on topics of interest to a subset of members.  Past webinars for instance have focused on ICF Accreditation, and How to Write a Winning Prism Award nomination.   There are plans for more webinars in the future. 


World class speakers come to stage for engaging full day of interactive presentations and learning.  The March 2018 conference at Beanfield Centre was sold out with over 220 participants in attendance.

    Cross Canada Coaching Series ICF Quebec, 5 of 5

    This pilot project was created by ICF chapters Vancouver Island, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, and Quebec. Each webinar is free and exclusive to members of these participating chapters.

    Monday, March 18, 2019
    1:30 p.m. ET
    James Gavin, PhD, APBB, FACP, MCC
    ICF Core Competency: Presence

    CEUs offered: 1 CC

    Jim Gavin  has designed and delivered coach training programs for individuals and organizations since 1998. He has been a practicing psychologist since 1972, and over the past few decades has centered his practice in professional coaching. Presently, he is the director of the Centre for Human Relations and Community Studies and a full professor in the department of applied human sciences at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. He co-directs Concordia University’s ICF-ACTP coach certification program, as well as offering other coaching programs through Concordia’s John Molson Executive Centre. Jim has been designated a Diplomate in Counseling Psychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology, the highest award for recognizing excellence in the practice of counseling psychology. He has published nine books and generated over 250 research papers and conference presentations. 

    In this webinarWe will play with our understanding of what presence is, how much we can reasonably expect of ourselves in a coaching session, what the internal feel of presence is like, what it looks like from the outside, and how we can embody it more of the time everywhere in our lives. And we will also navigate our way through what research tells us about coaching presence.

    Note: This webinar will be recorded and archived on each chapter's website. It may be used for future member learning. By registering for this event, you accept these terms.

    You will receive the link for the webinar via email after you register here. If you do not receive a confirmation email with the link please contact Kim at

    Thank you for participating in this pilot project involving five webinars and for providing feedback after each session. This information will be examined by the planning committee to determine if there is a desire to have future collaborations. Stay tuned!
