In 2015, CDI-Africa participated in various Corporate Events in a bid to sensitize and create awareness on professional coaching. Our overriding goal to participating in these events and many others to come is to fulfil our mission of supporting organizations and their leaders to maximize the leadership impacts and legacy! The events include:
For the first time, we participated in the Annual HR conference and interacted with the HR professionals in Kenya. Our exhibition booth was well visited which demonstrates the need for more information in this novel space of coaching. We hope to continue with these conversations as we do recognize HR professionals as one of our very critical partners in our journey towards embedding coaching culture in organizations. The culmination was a raffle where 2 organizations won coaching vouchers.
KIM COYA Awards
We participated as sponsors in the Kenya Institute of Management (KIM) annual COYA ceremony. CDI-Africa awarded coaching vouchers worth Kes. 500,000 and Kes. 250,000 to the CEO of the year (Mr. Sanjay Brahambatt of Blowpast Kenya Ltd) and the Manager of the Year (Ms. Mariam A.

CDI-Africa Alumni Forum
We launched the first Alumni forum. A forum to drive the coaching agenda forward and provide a networking and further learning platform for our Alumni network. One key outcome from the forum was the unanimous agreement that jointly with the Alumni Leaders, we will be coordinating quarterly alumni networking forums as a means to staying connected to their developmental needs.
