    ICF Toronto Chapter Professional Development Meeting

    Trends in Coaching:

    Democratization vs. Commoditization of Coaching in the Virtual World

    With Thom Wright, PCC

    In this collaborative discussion, Thom will offer thoughts from behind the scenes at Ezra, a global virtual coaching platform that has seen explosive growth since it went live in 2019. Thom will talk about his vision, and Ezra’s mission, to Democratize Professional Coaching and how this differs from commoditizing the field. He will share the story of Ezra’s incredible growth since 2019, touch on some of his thoughts on the ‘why’ of it and share some of the trends we’ve seen as thousands of clients have passed through programs with Ezra over the course of the pandemic. Come join us and discuss trends in Virtual Coaching! In this interactive session we will invite you to share your thoughts on trends you are seeing in our profession and where you see those trends propelling us into the future.

    While we know it is important to keep an eye on trends, Thom hopes you’ll leave the discussion with an invitation to step past simply looking for trends and to drive them yourself.

    Reflect on Wayne Gretsky’s famous quote: “I skate to where the puck is going to be, not to where it has been”, and then ask yourself a deeper question: “Who do I have to be to invite the puck?”

    Media Magnet: How to Get Great PR and Grow Your Business

    With Clare Kumar, ACC

    PR is a powerful marketing tool, but how do you get it? ICF Toronto member, Clare Kumar, has been working in media since March 2009 with her first appearance a nine-minute live-to-tape segment on The Steven and Chris Show. Join us to learn how Clare got started and how PR has evolved to be not just a regular part of Clare’s business but a profit centre in its own right. Clare will share the tactics she uses to stay on journalists’ must-call list. You, too, can be a media magnet.

    About Clare Kumar, ACC

She's worked with companies such as Facebook, Staples, Whirlpool, TD Bank, and the University of Waterloo. Clare's highly sensitive temperament is behind her superpower of noticing little things that make a big difference.

    ICF Toronto Chapter Professional Development Meeting

    Walk with me...

    a conversation with Louise Taylor Green, 
    CEO of Human Resources Professionals Association (ON)

    Walk With Me…A Chief Human Resource Officer's perspective on navigating the complex terrain of the modern workplace issues and where coaching could help.

    Louise describes herself as “passionate about high-performance HR” and over the past 25 years, she’s working in diverse industries like aviation, banking, insurance, healthcare and professional regulation. In her ‘day job’ Louise is the CEO of the HRPA – the professional regulatory association for HR in Ontario. Louise is also a coach and started her own coaching and consulting business back in 2014.

    Louise will share some of her insights about being a Chief Human Resources Officer and what those experiences have taught her. There will be important insights for coaches who want to influence and partner with HR departments and why HR sometimes says “no”, and possible strategies to help shift that mindset.

    Louise will share her perspectives on the complexities and challenges facing organizations from an HR point of view and where coaching may fit.

    The discussion will be candid and grounded in lived-experiences using real cases. There will also be a 15 minute Q&A at the end of the presentation with Louise.

    Please join us for this exciting opportunity to hear from Louise!
