The Final Launch Pad : Festive Treats, Guildhall Coaching Assosciates


As the year concludes, we are coming to the end of our journey as the Launch Pad and would love for you to join our final session full of “Festive Treats”!

Jane Booth, Trevor Folley, Jo Hensel, Chris Brannick and Carlos Lopez-Real will be coming together to host a session unlike any previous Launch Pad. You’re in for a treat with a fun-filled session planned; from a game show element to Chris Brannick’s Christmas suit! It would be amazing to see everyone who has helped make Launch Pad what it is.

Festive attire is not required, but definitely encouraged!

We invite everyone to bring something that inspires them; a picture, poem, saying or idea as we leave this year behind. Anything that inspires you that you may wish to share.

Taking place on 2nd December 2020, 4-5.30pm BST. If you wish to join us for this final date, please  email, headed 'The Launch Pad' to be included on our guest list. 

The Launch Pad is a free supportive thinking space provided by Guildhall Coaching Associates for artists emerging from the Covid-19 pandemic. Drawing on models from Coaching and Mentoring, we have explored a range of ways in which to rethink, reframe and re-experience this phase of our lives in search of new insights.

The sessions blend input from one of our Executive Coaches with guided group discussions. We meet via Zoom.
