How it works

You have the opportunity to book 1x 30 minutes 1:1 private coaching session. Depending on the coaches availability, the coaching sessions are open up until 4th August 2022. Once you select an available slot for your session, be detailed on what you would like to get coaching on by asking the questions so the coach can prepare for the session. Should you not get a session slot with your first preferred coach, you are also welcome to book a coaching session with any other coach outside of your business operating country coaches. Alternatively, you can email us at and we can see if other arrangements can be made.
