We realise people are concerned about coronavirus. We want to be transparent about this and update you with our plan of action. Your health and safety at our events is our number one concern.
We have reviewed advice from health authorities and consulted with medical professionals. They have said that since our events are only 20-50 people in size, our events are not a "mass public gathering" like a sporting event or music festival, so our upcoming events are deemed safe to attend (this includes the 12 events we have already run safely this year).
However, as a precautionary measure we are taking additional steps to ensure everyone's safety, including:
- No direct physical contact with anyone during the day. This includes handshakes and high fives.
- Chairs will be spaced far apart so you will not be sitting right next to anybody.
- Instructions to all participants on the day about safety precautions such as washing hands, not touching face and no handshakes.
- Providing hand sanitizer for everybody at the back of the room.
- Staff and crew to follow the highest standards of hygiene
We have also reached out to the hotels where we are holding our events and they have all increased their internal cleaning processes.
There are also additional recommendations from the World Health Organization at the bottom of this page.
We will continue to monitor the situation and update you should anything change. If you would like to cancel your attendance to our upcoming event "How To Become A Highly Successful Coach" please click here

Additional Coronavirus Recommendations From The World Health Organization
Wash your hands frequently
Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available, use hand sanitizer. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.
Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
Why? Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.
Maintain social distancing from people who are sick, coughing or sneezing
Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
Why? When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.
Practice respiratory hygiene
Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.
Why? Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.
If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early
Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.
Why? National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent spread of viruses and other infections.
