We welcomed three new members to the EMCC UK Board this summer. Claire Davey, our new Chair of Governors, introduces herself here, and also see introductions by Paul Crick and Mark Ellery.
On 16 June I stepped into the role of Chair of Governors and Non-executive Director on the Board at EMCC UK. I’m looking forward to working with a group of motivated Governor Members and the new combination of talent on the Board. I’d like to welcome Paul Crick who has recently joined the Board as Director of Professional Development and Mark Ellery who joins as Director of Development; they have certainly hit the ground running.
My relationship with EMCC started over 10 years ago as an organisational member, when Deloitte and EMCC UK founded the Professional Services Network (PSN). That was during a time when internal coaching and supervision were gathering huge momentum. The PSN provided a unique opportunity for me to connect with like minds in other organisations to really drive the agenda forward, individually and collectively. While that is something I miss now I’ve started my own business, I continue to have interesting dialogue with individual members at EMCC conferences, network events and webinars. I’ve really felt the sense of community during this time of transition.
It was after speaking at EMCC’s first International Internal Coaching Conference that I started to consider making time to volunteer for EMCC UK on the premise that I could be part of something bigger, working in collaboration to shape the future of mentoring, coaching and supervision. There are many volunteer projects coming up over the coming months, which create the opportunity to make a real impact – find out more on the Vacancies and opportunities page. I encourage everyone to get involved where you can.
Stay safe and stay well, Claire
