Yesterday I spent the day at a workshop presented by the Society for Intercultural Education Training and Research (SIETAR), held at University of Westminster in London.  The event focused on coaching and culture, with particular focus on solution focused coaching.  I got the opportunity to do quick phonecast interviews with three of the speakers (utilizing my iPhone and the free app ipadio):

Dr. Mark McKergow is co-director of sfwork – The Centre for Solutions Focus at Work. He is an international consultant, speaker and author of several books, including “The Solutions Focus.”

This was my first SIETAR UK event, and it was a great introduction to the organization.  I’m now a member, and plan to become active (in fact, Chair Matthew Hill has already roped me in as a volunteer), so you’ll no doubt be reading more about it here.
