Coaching and Cava is a quarterly event, dreamt up by James Herbertson and me in 2017 and further developed with Ola Gasza. I am a qualified coach, and love one-to-one coaching. I believe in the benefits that coaching brings, but I also recognise that limited time and budget could prevent people from experiencing coaching, so James and I decided to create an event that allows participants to coach each other. The two-hour after-work event includes one or more inspirational speakers, peer coaching in groups using action learning sets, and an opportunity to network with a chilled glass of Cava or juice. The event is free to attend, speakers and organisers are unpaid, and the drinks are generously supplied by James Herbertson.

The point of the event is to facilitate career support through peer to peer coaching, expand people's networks across the industry, and promote equality within the creative and education industries.
