Meet The 3 Shires Management Team for 2017-18


Chair: Debbie Inglis

I’m delighted once again to have been re-elected as Chair for the next 12 months. We’ve achieved a lot as a group over the last year, with 2 of our 3 goals achieved, and the 3rd has been incorporated into this year’s first goal.

We had our first Business & Personal Development Workshop in February this year, and our next is in June. This initiative of offering more for our members other than our regular meetings is proving successful, and we’ll continue to review this and listen to what members want. This will include offering a mentoring session for coaches in training (whichever coaching company/organisation they are training with). Look out for more information on this in our newsletters (sign up here if you’re not yet receiving these), and on our Facebook Group page.

There are lots of opportunities for personal, CPD and business growth at The 3 Shires, so why not come along to see how we can help you. Whatever your coaching role, or level of coaching experience, we’d love to welcome you to our group.  Come along and see how we can help / support you, and we always welcome feedback and ideas on how we can continue to improve. Hope to see you soon!

Treasurer: Claire Cahill

I’m delighted to be re-appointed as Treasurer of The 3 Shires Coaching Group for the next 12 months. The last year has absolutely flown by and I am delighted that we had so many visitors come to the meetings and then join on one of our membership options. This was one of the goals that I set as the Treasurer and I’m delighted to have achieved it!

The challenge for the next 12 months is to work with the management committee to agree how we can invest the membership further so that the group can continue to grow and utilise their CPD to maximum effect. All ideas from the whole group are welcome, the more suggestions the better. I would also like to see the group collaborating more with other coaching groups in the community so that we can utilise our skills and learn from others so that local businesses can learn more about how valuable coaching is in the community. Here’s to another productive and exciting 12 months.

Mentoring Co-ordinator & Librarian: David McCormick

Having been a member of the Group since early 2016 it is a privilege to serve as Mentoring coordinator and Librarian.

The coordinator role is in response to a new and exciting initiative suggested by members at our AGM earlier this year. We hope to see this develop and grow over the coming year as we offer opportunities for focused group sessions, and where desired, one to one mentoring for those completing their coaching qualifications and setting up their own practice. It’s our aim to provide a program that addresses the needs and concerns of our members, and complements the usual provision of the 3 Shires Coaching Group.

The role of Librarian is well established, and seeks to maintain and develop a range of resources that are available to members of the group. To that end, I am always happy to receive recommendations about resources that will enhance the comprehensive stock we already carry.

I look forward to working alongside Debbie and Claire on the Management Committee as we continue the work of developing the opportunities available to existing and potential members of the 3 Shires Coaching Group.

If you’re thinking of coming along, do! You will receive a very warm and genuine welcome, and discover a vibrant group of coaches and personal development professionals committed to improving their own skills and knowledge, in service of their client base and the wider community.
