11th Annual Coaching and Mentoring Research Conference

The Annual Coaching and Mentoring Research Conference: A showcase for postgraduate research in coaching and mentoring.

12th Annual Coaching and Mentoring Research Conference

The 11th Annual Coaching and Mentoring Research Conference was held at Oxford Brookes University Business School on Thursday 15 January 2015.

This one-day conference was attended by coaching and mentoring practitioners, students and academics, all with an interest in how research in the field is currently developing. The conference provided opportunities for recent graduates from the MA in Coaching and Mentoring Practice, the Doctor of Coaching and Mentoring and doctoral programmes at other institutions to present their methodologies and findings to a wider audience. Fourteen papers were presented on a range of innovative research topics that continue to contribute significantly to the evidence base for professional practice.

The Keynote was delivered by Dr Almuth McDowall, Course Director of the MSc Human Resource Development and Consultancy at Birkbeck, University of London. Almuth asked the audience to consider the evidence for strengths based and feed forward coaching.

Papers from the conference were published in the June 2015 special issue of the International Journal of Evidence Based Coaching and Mentoring.
