Professor Bob Garvey leads Coaching and Mentoring Masterclass

Bob GarveyYork St John University’s next Business Masterclass will focus upon Coaching and Mentoring. Led by Bob Garvey, Professor in Business Education at York St John, the session will look at The Brief Coaching model, developed by Peter Szabo and Insoo Kim Berg.

Professor Garvey will demonstrate the model and show how coaching sessions do not have to last a long time or be numerous to be successful. This will be followed by a discussion on the implications of the model for businesses and managers.

The seminar, on Wednesday 15 July, starts at 5.30pm and will be held in the Phoenix Centre on the University campus.

Professor Garvey is one of Europe’s leading academics in mentoring and coaching and last year won a Lifetime Achievement Award from the professional journal Coaching At Work for contributions to his field.

The Business School’s masterclass season was launched last year to provide an insight into leading business innovation from industry experts.
