Event description


In its fourth year, Salisbury International Coaching Week (ICW) 2019 starts with our inspirational keynote speaker, Jordan Wylie. Jordan is a former soldier, an adventurer and best-selling author - and a fundraiser extraordinaire. Sir Ranulph Fiennes describes Jordan as, "A determined, fearless adventurer and an inspiring man."

Our intention for SalisburyICW is to celebrate coaching within our communities with a programme of free events and for all participants to learn, share and grow. SalisburyICW provides workshops, experiences and talks on a wide range of coaching and related topics. Experiential events are available every day: mindfulness meditations; and short (30 min) 1:1 coaching 'taster' sessions. We also have on-line events and an evening social-cum-networking event on 01 May 2019 in Salisbury.

Our 3 target audiences (TA) are:

  • TA 1: Coaches and people who want to become coaches

  • TA 2: People who want to be coached

  • TA 3: Organisations from any sector (private, public, non-profit) that want to use coaching

Each day of Salisbury ICW has a theme:

  • Monday 29 April: Inspiration. We want everyone to understand the potential of coaching to help people maximise their personal and professional potential.

  • Tuesday 30 April: Wellbeing. Wellness coaching is increasingly being used as an effective way to help people make empowered choices that support their wellbeing.

  • Wednesday 01 May: Business. Business coaching is a blended approach that combines coaching with sharing business knowledge and strategies.

  • Thursday 02 May: Career. Career coaching provides direction and structure to help people work out their optimal career path.

  • Friday 03 May: Taking Coaching to the next level. This theme is about how to make more of coaching and how to get more out of coaching.

A pop-up cafe will be serving great coffee, snacks and other refreshments. Hot and cold food can be ordered at the event and will be delivered from a nearby café. Please bring cash for ease of payment.

All our events are FREE. Salisbury ICW is sponsored by the International Coach Federation (UK). The venue is provided free of charge by a Salisbury-based charity, There is free parking on site at the front and rear of Riverside House and in surrounding side streets. Please register on arrival at the main entrance to Riverside House.

In recognition of this support, the Organiser of Salisbury ICW (Ross Nichols) will make a sponsored pilgrimage of remembrance around the WW1 battlefields of Ypres 08~15 May to raise funds for Alabare's 'Homes for Veterans' programme. He will be sleeping rough in sympathy with our homeless veterans:

Sarah uses various modalities to help unlock the innate potential stored within all of us. She helps people move through whatever is holding them back, to attain more fulfilling relationships, careers, and obtain work/life balance.

Harnessing the power of the sub-conscious and super-conscious, we can tap into the most powerful of inner resources to achieve more than we believed possible.

Sarah is an accredited Journey Practitioner and Life Retuning Practitioner, as well as practicing her own modality “Relationship Counselling for the Energetic Persona”; recognising that when we change the ‘energy’ around any relationship, everything held around it changes. This goes for work, money and health as well as the more obvious relationships with ourselves and others.

Sarah maintains a daily yoga/meditation practice from which she consciously begins each day, and taps into this bigger picture awareness when working towards fulfilling the aims of a client.

After decades working at senior management level and subsequently caring for a terminally ill partner, I decided that I needed to change, to free myself and to breathe. I discovered NLP and hypnotherapy and my life has changed dramatically for the better.

“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we week.” Barack Obama.

I work using NLP and hypnotherapy to coach others into finding their own moment of change, to discover their freedom and to breathe.
