Looking for event space - 10 July

Dear Community!
I am looking for a space to conduct a free workshop in the area of coaching skills for leaders, consultants and mentors. I am a founder of Creative Brain Academy, a small startup based in Breda, the Netherlands. Our vision is to co-create the future with bright leaders and equality in the workplace. How do we do that? We organise Female Leadership Development Academy, giving free access to powerful tools and broad knowledge to women across the globe. We do not discriminate against men though. Creating workshops open for both genders, we really want to educate leaders on communication skills and creating sustainable changes within organisations.

Coaching Immersion Workshop, that we’re planning for 10.07.18 in Amsterdam would have the following line-up:
09:00 - 09:30 Registration & Networking chat over a morning coffee
09:30 - 10:00 The distinctiveness of a transformative coaching approach & How we can create sustainable solutions with it.
10:00 - 10:45 Three dimensions of a conversation: Vertical vs Horizontal learning + Practise your coaching conversation Attempt #1
10:45 - 11:15 Enabling reflective learning & Power of a question: turn a structural conversation into a learning one
11:15 - 11:35 Practise you coaching conversation Attempt #2
11:35 - 11:55 Introduction to the Full Certification Program: ICF Professional Coach Training
11:55 - 12:20 Ask the coach: open discussion with a Leadership Coach Trainer and a possibility to network with all attendees
12:20 - 12:30 Closing remarks

We’re looking for a free space to conduct the workshop. I am aware that the notice is rather short. We’re not expecting more than 20 people. Depending on the space size we could ensure a specific number of seats for people from your community. I am confident, the subject of the workshop would be of interest. We will learn about the distinctiveness of the transformative coaching approach and gain the understanding of the science behind enabling sustainable change. In addition, for such generous help, we would be able to provide one online leadership coaching session with a certified coach, for all your staff members, free of charge.

After this workshop people will know:
1. The distinctiveness of a transformative coaching approach and how we can create sustainable solutions with it.
2. Three dimensions of a conversation
3. The one question that can shift any structured conversation into a transformative one

I hope you would agree that these skills are very relevant to today’s VUCA environment. We would greatly appreciate if you could share your space with us free of charge so we can continue providing free education in that aspect. Creative Brain Academy will also run a full certification program in coaching later this year. So also all attendees will be able to receive a significant discount voucher to gain a globally recognised professional certification. We’re also going to organise the same event in Rotterdam on July, 03rd so if you know any potential organisations that would be willing to share their space on that morning, I’d greatly appreciate your help.

Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to email me or call +31 6 84 725 756
I look forward to your responses! Who knows, it may be a beginning of an amazing collaborative adventure!
