Join us online for two days of interactive workshops delivered by expert members of the GCA community. We will be exploring a wide range of themes, including topics you wouldn’t find at any other coaching conference.

Our overarching theme is to help you have a fantastic and productive 2021 for your coaching practice.

Your event provocateurs are Chris Cooper and Pete Simmonds, who throughout the two days will inspire you to explore new ideas and concepts to enhance your coaching success.

All sessions can be booked individually by GCA members, attendees of the International Gay Coaches Conference and other gay men coaches new to our community. The conference is available to book free of charge as a fundraiser for the host of our annual in person conference, Easton Mountain.

Sessions for the 2021 Spring Virtual Conference


Expanding Potential Through Diverse Thinking

Your Event Provocateurs Chris Cooper and Pete Simmonds kick off the Conference with a powerful and highly interactive session designed to open your minds to new opportunities for personal and professional growth.

Innovation happens through diversity. Not only demographic diversity, it is powered by cognitive diversity. Bringing people with different sets of skills and experience together to build collective intelligence.

Pete and Chris will create a space for making connections and building bridges between the numerous unique talents of the gay coaches gathered together.

This session will include group exercises and networking opportunities, provoking discussion around how we can be a force for positive change in the world by promoting diverse thinking with our clients.

It will set the tone for the rest of the two day conference. Creating a space for making connections and learning new ideas in your continuous development as a coach. In the process, enhancing how you are able to serve your clients.
