How to connect with the world’s most successful coaches at no cost

As coaches, the quality of our coaching provision is truly our most valuable asset and I believe that constantly educating ourselves and raising our standards is crucial for long-term success.

You might have attended WBECS - the World Business and Executive Coaching Summit in the past so you know you will receive outstanding value from their powerful presenters. This is an opportunity to learn some of the best coaching tools, frameworks and methodologies available in the industry and this allow you to truly increase the quality of your coaching skills - and increase the results you will achieve with your clients as well.

At WBECS - which is a live online summit, featuring over 40 of the biggest names and most impactful experts in the coaching profession - the speakers share their most profound wisdom and knowledge that you can implement in your own coaching right away.

Plus, you’ll be able to earn up to 3 CCE Units at no cost.

I’ve personally gained extraordinary value from the summit and would love to invite you to join at no cost.

Here are just a few examples of all the live classes you’ll be able to attend when you join the complimentary Pre-Summit:

- How To Dramatically Increase Your Close Rates On Your Coaching Clients - by Alisa Cohn

- Deconstructing Deep Coaching For Top Performers - by Rich Litvin

- Design and Deliver a TEDx Talk That Positions You As A Global Thought Leader - by Sam Horn

You will also get to join a global community of thriving coaches and co-create the WBECS event by attending their focused Round Tables and exclusive Implementation Mastery Sessions. WBECS has upgraded the event, even more, this year, so whether you’ve attended before or not, I highly recommend that you join the free Pre-Summit now before the most popular sessions reach capacity.
