When you think about excellence in coaching what do you think about first? Do you think it’s more about their training skills or their ability to draw out the best in their team, or is it harnessing natural talent and being great about analysing people? Whatever that elusive mix is it’s definitely about cultivating ability and getting the work done and these three finalists are fantastic examples of doing just that. Meet our three finalists for the 2016 Coach of the Year Award:
When Peter Charles announced at his 70th birthday party that he had decided to walk more than 1,500 miles for charity his friends and family were astounded. In fact most of them thought he must be drunk or simply mad! But after setting off on Valentine’s Day Peter stepped across the finish line today to prove to everyone that he is a truly determined man.
Today is Ellie Simpson’s 22nd birthday and she has certainly achieved a huge amount in that time! Ellie has Quadriplegic Athetoid Cerebral Palsy and three years ago whilst feeling increasingly isolated by her able-bodied peers she had a ‘lightbulb’ moment and turned to social media to change her life, and the lives of others with the same condition.
