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


Leveraging Visualization & Storytelling to Grow Your Coaching Business

with Carson Cooper and Kyle Elliott


In this workshop, you will leverage your intuition and unconscious mind in order to build a brand story
that attracts your ideal client. So often coaches fill out a formulaic brand message that feels clunky,
stagnant, and similar to so many others. It is so natural to second guess and question whether the
impact of your message is connecting with the people you know you can make an impact on.

In this workshop, you will intuitively connect to your brand messaging, understand consciously, and
unconsciously how to connect with your ideal clients, then have a structured process to grow your
coaching business. Know where you are messaging is out of alignment with your brand and how to get
into alignment to attract your ideal client.

You will leave with confidence and excitement to share this message knowing it will connect with the people you are meant to serve. Carson and Kyle have come together integrating the best research in storytelling, messaging, and branding with how to access your intuition to create a strong message that will connect with your client’s conscious and unconscious desires.

*This 3 hour session is a preview of the full day workshop Carson and Kyle will be delivering as the pre-conference element of next year’s in-person conference at Easton Mountain. It is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about their fantastic and get a head start on our 2022 International Gay Coaches Conference.
