Delighted to be selected as the @ICFIreland Career Coach of the Year 2014, which was sponsored by Lee Hecht Harrison and presented by Keara McAndrew; while we don’t do this work for awards, I’m honoured especially when so many other brilliant coaches were shortlisted.
Congratulations also to Worklink.ie represented by Darren Cannon and volunteer Claire Dunne, who won the ICF President’s Award for their work since 2012, providing free coaching to unemployed people and to Pat Kennedy on his well deserved award of overall Coach of the Year 2014.
Huge thanks to ICF Ireland particularly Mary Anna Wright and Clodagh Swanson who have been doing incredible work to develop the coaching profession in Ireland and organised a fabulous inaugural awards evening at Killashee House Hotel.
Thanks to Eoin McCabe and Adrian Mitchell at the ILI who have provided such inspiring coach training over the years, and also Marian Byrne, Claire Shiels and Anne Tannam who have always been there for me with coaching, support and encouragement.
Thanks to Nial O’Reilly and Caroline Owens for the nominations, and to all the brilliant clients I’m privileged to be working with.
Most of all thanks to my wonderful husband and family in Dublin and Wexford for all their patience and support, particularly in those times when they are being coached and don’t want to be!
Well done to all the amazing winners and finalists, and already looking forward to next years gala!
