Enhanced Learning Experience - Our Summit FormatOpen Close
Each day during the Pre-Summit there are 1-3 sessions you can attend. The Full-Summit is now – for the first time ever – spread out throughout the year with weekly sessions available in 2 different time zones to match our community’s busy schedules.
Each session is live, digital, interactive and packed with impactful content from the Coaching Industry’s most brilliant minds and thought leaders. You can attend them all, or choose only the ones that are most relevant to you. WBECS is proud to be a completely pitch-free event as we deliver powerful value and applicable wisdom only. No sales pitches, no fluff. We honor your time investment and as a result facilitate value-packed sessions with the intention to raise the global standard of coaching – one coach at a time.
Each session includes a LIVE Q&A section, so you can ask our expert presenters questions in real time and receive specific feedback. We are firm believers in the power of community and this year’s WBECS offers even more opportunities to connect, network and engage with like-minded coaches from all across the globe. You will be able to interact with our speakers, ask your personal questions during the sessions and network with thousands of colleagues and peers in our global online community to expand your professional network and set yourself up for exponential business success.
We know that knowledge without application won’t create the impact you aspire to make. That’s why we support you in implementing your learnings right away by offering our special Implementation Mastery Sessions (available for ALL Full-Summit sessions and select Pre-Summit sessions). You will get to join your peers and colleagues in a smaller group setting to dive deep into the practical applications of the learning materials and make sure you embody the wisdom right away.
New for 2017! In addition to our popular Implementation Mastery sessions, you can now also join any number of Round Table discussions with your fellow coaches and colleagues. Designed by our WBECS Coach team and hosted throughout Pre-Summit these virtual table discussions will focus on a wide variety of topics and you may join as many as you wish. Discover new ideas, make meaningful connections, or even join a regular social hour. The opportunities to connect with and learn from coaches around the globe are endless!
Whether you join LIVE or listen to the recordings, thanks to WBECS’ 100% digital format you can learn wherever you want and whenever it matches your schedule. You can revisit sessions as many times as you like and use the additional resources such as session slides, executive notes and transcripts to match your individual learning style.
Once the sessions are complete, they are posted and available for you in our exclusive WBECS members’ portal. Even if you are not able to make the live session you will have exclusive access to all the recordings for six months and can download all the sessions to keep them forever. Catch up on any sessions you may have missed and review sessions that were particularly useful to you – whenever and wherever you like!

WBECS Impact - Our MissionOpen Close
We see the power of coaches in their ability to change the world and make it a better place – a more abundant place – where every human being has the ability to achieve high levels of personal and professional success.
We believe that coaches are a source of improving efficiencies at a personal and organizational level and that they have the ability to have a profound and positive impact on both individual and organizational goals.
Our big “why” comes from Buckminster Fuller’s philosophy that the greatest use of a human life is to add as much value as you possibly can to the world. So the core WBECS objective is to add as much value as we can to help coaches become more successful and as a result enable them to help millions of clients around the world.
Our long term objective is to build the world’s largest resource for children’s charities, not for profits and social enterprises to be able to access coaches. Our goal for this is to create 64,000 coaching engagements per year with children’s charities, not for profits and social enterprises and have the coaching result directly in the organization being able to serve 100 extra children in need each year – as a minimum. Therefore the goal is to help 6.4 million children in need each year.
Expect Excellence - Our PromiseOpen Close
WBECS is different because we are completely independent in the industry and we only work with the very best coaches in the world. Each and every presenter who speaks at our annual WBECS event has been hand selected due to quality of their insights and the value they bring to the industry.
We do a call for nominations each year and receive well over 1,000 nominations from our global community – as we did this year. We ask our community of coaches: Who has had the most profound impact on your success as a coach through their tools, teachings, methodologies and frameworks?
From those nominations, we hand select the top presenters who we then invite to speak and share their most valuable knowledge at WBECS.
WBECS as a company believes in good people! We only hire good people – who are heart-centered, focused on how they can add value to the world, making lives better and understanding the value that coaches bring to the world on a deep level.
We strongly understand and believe in the importance of coaching in the future of our planet and so we will always go above and beyond to support coaches on their individual missions to do good in this world.
