ICF Global is celebrating 20 years of existence this year
ICF has decided to celebrate its anniversary by creating a COACHING CARAVAN initiative. "ICF en tour - Coaching beyond Bounderies" will be launched at the ICF conference in London on Sept 19 and much like for the Olympics, a flag will be passed on from country to country to celebrate the ICF global anniversary. 22 countries are participating to date and numerous activities are planned around the Coaching Caravan by each ICF Chapter. ICF Switzerland will hand over the flag and celebrate on October 9th in Zurich and Geneva on 13th. More details on the events and celebrations will follow in due time.
