About the Network

The Coaching & Mentoring Network website is a free web-based information resource dedicated to the broad field of coaching and mentoring. Subscribers can join the coach and mentor referral service to promote their services as a coach and to find like minded colleagues for peer consulting, supervision and networking.

This website was originally launched in March 1999 to support the growing interest in learning and professional development services offered under the names coaching and mentoring within business and the wider community. All information published is respectful of the diversity which exists in the wider community of interest and practice.

Responsibility (personal & professional)

Respect (self, clients & all professions in the community of practice).

The Coaching & Mentoring Network (CMN) website was launched in June 1999 and has been delivering free online information resources and a coach/mentor referral service from www.coachingnetwork.org.uk continuously ever since.

The success of this website and the role it has played in the development of the wider coaching and mentoring community over the first 15 years of operation has been due to the dedication and committment of Pauline Willis, Anna Britnor-Guest and Martin Richards who were co-directors of The Coaching & Mentoring Network Ltd.

Lauriate Ltd took over the ownership and management of the wwww.coachingnetwork.org.uk website and associated services in April 2014. Lauriate Ltd is owned by Pauline Willis, one of the original founding directors of the CMN Ltd.
