Guest Co-Host: Laura Fink is a Professional Certified Coach, and a Program Leader for Accomplishment Coaching Training Program. In her coaching practice, she coaches busy professionals who are looking for accelerated growth in their personal lives by re-prioritizing what’s most important. Her clients have one thing in common: they are all successful but something seems to be missing and all the hard work is not translating into true happiness or results.

Guests 1: Patrick Burlingham and Christine Sachs

This session demystifies the process of pitching organizational clients. This presentation will share insights and tools from both sides of the bench (coach and organizational client) to strengthen a coach’s ability to successfully create partnerships with organizations. Our focus will be on both the “being” of the pitch as well as the “doing” of pitching. The presentation will mix real-life scenarios with concrete “how-tos” in order for participants to leave with tools they can implement immediately.

Clients report that working with Christine has been the catalyst for unprecedented risk and reward.

Guest 2: Shavon Lindley

Shavon is a CEO of Women Evolution, but before that, hosted a radio program called “The CEO Show” on ESPN while teetering on the verge of burnout as a top-performing financial advisor. I leveraged The CEO Show to interview over 150 executives—many of them Forbes Global 2000 female executives—to discover how she could grow both personally and professionally, somehow have a family in the process, and then share those secrets with other women.

What Shavon discovered became the foundation of Women Evolution and my life’s mission: sharing these amazing stories and strategies in the hopes of creating more high-performing, gender-balanced teams across corporate America.
