Congratulations to all the coaches who have either attained a new credential or renewed their certification! This remarkable achievement is a clear indication of your unwavering dedication and diligence. You should take pride in your accomplishment as reaching this level of expertise demands a lot of hard work and commitment. Please continue to inspire and empower others with your coaching.


On April 26, We had a wonderful morning in the company of our talented ICF HK members and coaches at our first face-to-face Member Connection session since the pandemic at Cafe 8. Hosted by our esteemed Board members Mehroo Turel, Nigel Raymont, and Ganesh Chidanbaram, we were thrilled to have ICF HK’s former President Mathilde Poirieux join us.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our members for attending the event and providing us with valuable feedback. One of the suggestions was to create a support group for coaches, which we will be implementing soon. Based on the group’s positivity and enthusiasm, we plan to organize more such meetups in the future!
