Winter Virtual Conference:
Our Winter Virtual Conference provides a platform to connect with your coaching peers from the Gay Coaches Alliance community and other talented gay men coaches attending a GCA event for the first time.
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.
