Coaching

Sometimes, the WCU receive requests for individual coaching.

In order to facilitate such requests, the WCU has drawn up a list (see below) giving details of WCU members who have expressed an interest in coaching on a one-to-one basis.

Very important!

These names listed below are not recommendations, they are merely a list of WCU members who are interested in coaching.
