Executive coaching networking breakfast

Does executive coaching provide a return on investment?

Maree McPherson Executive Coaching
Local coach and mentor Maree McPherson will talk about executive coaching and return on investment at a networking breakfast in Warragul on 14 September

Executive coaching has become the approach of choice in management development and as such has established itself as a standard in some industries.

There are significant benefits to organisations from coaching.  Does executive coaching provide a return on investment?  Can we measure it in financial terms, or are we foolish to even try?

Find out at the next Baw Baw Business & Community Network Events breakfast to be held at the Warragul Reception & Conference Centre on Thursday, 14 September 2017, supported by Federation Training and Telstra.

Guest speaker Maree McPherson is a coach, mentor, facilitator, and writer and works with corporate organisations, not-for-profits and individuals.  In her leadership development practice, Maree helps people aspire beyond what they think they are capable of.

With over 30 years’ experience, Ms McPherson is an experienced not for profit, government and community leader, and small business owner.  She is a creator of strong relationships across multiple stakeholder groups and a proven effective broker of partnerships, including as a CEO and in the public and for purpose (not for profit) domains.

Because she is passionate about community leadership, Ms McPherson chaired the advisory committee for the Gippsland Community Leadership Program for several years. Her fundamental belief in the power of education to change lives led Ms McPherson to become a member of the Victorian Adult, Community and Further Education Board for over five years.

Her commitment to developing regional Victoria saw Ms McPherson appointed by the Victorian Government to Chair the Gippsland Regional Partnerships committee for a four-year term from August 2016, and she is also member of the Victorian Government’s Regional Development Advisory Committee.

The networking breakfast is $35 for a hot plated breakfast and will be held from 7.00am to 9.00am on Thursday, 14 September.  Pre-event registration is essential with registrations due 6 September.

For more information and registration visit www.trybooking.com and search for Maree McPherson, or contact Kirstyn Krausz on kirstyn@gippslandem.com.au, phone 0413 187 576 or visit Gippsland Community Network Events Facebook page.
