Walking with My Inner Coach

A network session with Dr. Frances Penafort, MCC and Rosalind Wong, PCC on Wednesday, 22 November 2023, 7PM – 8:30PM SG/HK time.

What does it take to move ourselves as coaches from our comfort zone? Come and hear the experiences and key lessons of two coaches who have individually completed their Camino walk in search of their inner coach.

Dr. Frances transformed herself from a quiet, voiceless, ‘hiding in the shadows’ person, into an amazingly CONFIDENT, POWERFUL & UNSTOPPABLE LADY when she completed her solo walk in Galicia, Spain covering 100 km. Find out her myriad of hardships, obstacles, challenges and tests that were thrown on her path and how she broke all her barriers – mental, emotional, physical and spiritual through these challenges. She understood their purpose. This helped to transform her with a re-shaped thinking pattern that no barriers can stop her. All these hardships transformed into GIFTS that boosted her as a coach.

Rosalind embarked on the Camino de Santiago from Porto, Portugal to Santiago, Spain to fulfill a dream she had when she first heard of the Camino in 2007 from an ex-colleague. She was intrigued by the thought of walking alone to discover herself though she felt fearful about the unknown. The journey took 12 days on foot covering more than 200 km from Porto to Santiago. It was a journey that she will never forget. Discover how she renews her energy in this personal growth journey.
