Launched in 1999, ICW educates the public about the value of working with a professional coach and acknowledges the results and progress made through the coaching process. This year marks the 25th anniversary of International Coaching Week. To celebrate this milestone, we interviewed Jerri Udelson, MCC from New Mexico, USA who initiated the International Coaching Week back in 1999. Jerri is happy to share her story with you !
