The Coaching and Mentoring Network website first went live in June, 1999. A selection of congratulatory comments from our 15th
anniversary can be found below.
"Congratulations to the Coaching and Mentoring Network on fifteen years great service to the international coaching and mentoring community. Pauline Willis, as one of the key foundation figures in professional coaching and mentoring, has gone to great lengths to support the development of professional coaching and mentoring. Here’s to another fifteen years."
Anthony Grant PhD, Director, Coaching Psychology Unit, University of Sydney
"I have been pleased to make use of the Coaching & Mentoring Network over most of the period it has existed. My first use was when, as a European Leadership Development Manager within one of the world’s largest HR consultancy firms, I needed to source and match executive coaches to Partners across the Region. I found the logical and searchable facilities offered by the Network saved time and money and the consistent presentation of qualifications and experiences was helpful too. When I moved to a global role within the world’s largest NGO, the Network was my way of tracking down Pauline’s expertise and linking her to a high potential leader based in the UK with a global remit. The layout of the Network pages somewhat influenced the approach I took when building our own preferred list of coaches accredited to work with our senior leaders. So, you might say that the Network has helped me with content and process ideas over a number of years!"
John R Evans, Global Practice Leader Integrated Talent Management, World Vision International
"Many years ago - 1999 to be precise, CFM Consulting Ltd. met up with Pauline and Anna of the Coaching & Mentoring Network. There are some relationships in life that you can count on and this is one of them. We have worked with them on several projects, attended conferences with them and they have provided a constant source of guidance and information for us as we have developed our business. Congratulations to the Coaching & Mentoring Network and good luck for the next 15 years"
Peter Hill, Director, CFM Consulting Ltd
