 At the turn of the previous century the advent of automation driving efficiency and speed propelled the Industrial Revolution. It was a revolution that ruthlessly saw machines overpowering muscle.


Decades later the human mind, aided by quantum leaps in computing power, retook mastery over machines.


The Knowledge Revolution had begun. Unlike the earlier revolutions it, though, is one that is not destined to last long given that advances in cloud computing, robotics, machine learning and artificial intelligence are driving the new future. It is a future that threatens our present way of thinking and requires us to make a paradigm shift in the way that we must harness and use these new technologies.


 Can coaches remain complacent that the cyber-physical world will have little or no impact on our way of coaching? If we were to embrace these new technologies could we use them to improve our mastery of coaching? How might philosophies and concepts like self-awareness, fulfilment, love and compassion that remain integral to coaching fit in this new world?


 On 4th and 5th December 2017, at the IAC Sponsored International Coaching Conference in Colombo, Sri Lanka, coaches from around the world will meet to share and learn together possibilities for harnessing technologies that could help transform and create a new world of coaching. 


We welcome you and hope that you will attend this exciting event.


With appreciation,


Krishna Kumar, IAC President
