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.

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.
