Here’s an overview of the many events and activities we run as a local chapter
As your local Chapter we aim to host two major Chapter events each year which bring the Board, ICF Members, non-members, coaches and friends together from across the UAE.
Each event is hosted by a key speaker and brings you global and local trends, research and news so that you can learn from the experts. In addition, you’ll get updates on the ICF UAE Chapter projects and an opportunity to network as well as engage in stimulating discussions. Your attendance can also earn you CCEUs.
Look out for your invitation to register through our emailers and social networks.
Coaching Cafes are a series of monthly meet-ups hosted by Board Members. Held in a friendly and relaxed format, this event offers you a chance to receive ICF UAE Chapter updates, exchanging experience with peers, networking and connect to other Members and peers.
Coaching cafes are listed in our Events Calendar and promoted through our social channels.
The ICF Prism Award celebrates organizational coaching cultures. Applications are received during December of each year and the awards are held in May. The areas reviewed usually covers the four main themes of impact, standards, strategy and sustainability.
Any coach can nominate any organization they work within. The ICF UAE Chapter is proudly hosting the ICF Middle East Prism Awards for the first two years since its launch in 2017.
International Coaching Week
International Coaching Week (ICW) is held in May and is an annual week-long global celebration of the coaching profession. It involves a variety of activities and services that are offered to local communities to promote the fantastic impact of coaching. It aims to educate the public about the value of working with a professional coach and acknowledges the results and progress made through the coaching process.
Start planning early, we suggest as early as January. The earlier you plan your activities the better we can promote you. Look out for the ICW communication early in the year.
