"The AoEC Practitioner Diploma in Executive Coaching has been one of the most impactful professional learning opportunities I have engaged with. It has provided me with a range of frameworks in order to support others. More importantly, it has enhanced my own self-awareness and provided space for insightful self-reflection that has impacted my own professional practice."

– Emma Holmes, Interim Head of Service, NI Education Authority (April 2023 alumni).
