Midwest Conference Corner Update – June 2016

Julia MatternWe are just three weeks away from the Fifth Annual ICF-Midwest Regional Conference! The team is busy putting on the finishing touches to give you the best possible conference experience.

Activities begin on Thursday, June 23 at 1:00 pm with the Business Outreach Project, led by ICF Indy member Jane Creswell, MCC. This free workshop is open to the public and any interested coaches. Live coaching sessions for The Promise Zone Project also begin at 1:00 pm. Our special Fifth-Anniversary Bonus Session on Conversational Intelligence with Judith Glaser is from 3:00-5:00 pm. This session is before registration opens, so go directly to the session and register afterward (5-7 pm). For just this session, attendees will receive a CCEU certificate. Other sessions will be included on the conference passport that you will need to get stamped as you exit each session.

Ambassadors meet from 5:45-6:00 pm, followed by the First-Time Attendee Orientation at 6:00 pm. Exhibitor tables will be open from 5:00-7:00 pm, so be sure to check out the latest in coaching products and services before heading to the Opening Reception at the Artsgarden (7:00-9:00 pm). Reception-only tickets are $40 each at the door (cash or check only). If you are attending the conference, please register at the Westin (2nd floor lobby) before coming to the reception.

Friday and Saturday begin with breakfast at 7:00 am. Be there Friday morning for the drawing to win an hour with Marshall Goldsmith! Sessions start at 8:30 am with Marshall’s opening keynote and run until 5:00 pm. There will be ample breaks to visit our exhibitors, network and relax in our quiet room. We will have coffee and tea during the morning breaks and snacks during the afternoon breaks. Lunch is also included.

Friday features two special events. From 5:30-7:00 pm, there will be a sponsor/exhibitor appreciation event, where you can play a game to be eligible to win one of five gift baskets. Starting at 7:00 pm is our Crossroads Cuisine and Connections event. Click here and sign up online to dine at some of Indy’s best restaurants with small groups of colleagues. There are many events taking place in Indy the weekend of our conference, so we urge you to take advantage of the reservations we have already made for you.

Saturday’s sessions begin at 8:30 am with a general session on the neuroscience of coaching led by Ann Betz, Ursula Pottinga and Amorah Ross. There will be breakout sessions before and after lunch, and Marshall Goldsmith’s closing keynote at 4:00 pm. Stick around at the end for an announcement about the 2018 conference in Pittsburgh and the prize basket drawing.

As you plan for the conference, we encourage you to carpool if possible due to heavy traffic downtown that weekend. Bring something for taking notes, a water bottle (water stations will be available), a sweater or jacket in case session rooms are cool and plenty of business cards for networking. Dress is business casual.

After more than a year of planning, we are excited to welcome you for a great weekend of learning, growing and connecting. See you at The Crossroads!

Letter from the President | ICF Indy Chapter News | May 2016

Margie BieswangerWow, it’s already May. How did that happen?!

Spring is officially here and with it a sense of renewal and energy.

Spring energy brings new adventures and possibilities. You might find that a million ideas are bubbling to the surface, jostling for your attention.

That can feel great … or chaotic.

IdeaWe can find ourselves re-energized and focused … or scattered and overwhelmed by all the spring energy.

If that happens, it’s okay. Spring is supposed to be full of energy and awakening! AND you might need to tame that energy before you can move forward in a focused way.

So breathe. Ahhh, breathe.

Welcome spring and the exuberant energy it brings. Then make it your own.

Focus in on your highest priorities. What will deepen your coaching skills? What will help you build your successful business? Create your action list and dive in.

ICF Indianapolis ProgramIn fact, why not join us at the May Chapter Meeting and Program? It’s our business development day. Lunch is included, followed by three outstanding presenters, and then a panel of local coaches answering your questions about how they built their businesses.

You don’t want to miss this afternoon of community and business development. Learn more HERE and get registered – your coaching practice will thank you.

Well, there’s much more to tell you about, so keep reading. Stay connected. Be an active part of this community. And definitely plan to attend chapter events this year.

I can’t wait to see you again or meet you for the first time!

Margie
