Asides marking its 6th year of existence, the conference which had some of the major players in the Life Coaching industry served to re-invent the organisation as a whole and reposition it to serve its objectives and fulfil its mandate.

With the plethora of pseudo coaches, quack coaches and “wannabe” coaches around these days, it has become incredibly difficult to separate true professional Life Coaches from impostors. Hence, LCAN seeks to be the recognized professional body for the Practice of Life Coaching in Nigeria.

      The level of your intelligence is obviously extraordinary. Next time you meet someone suffering from depression or marital issue, please offer them a trip to your grandma’s village. Hopefully, she’ll still be alive.

      Yeah. Something close to that, but more personal. The way athletes need coaches, so does anyone with a limitation they wish to overcome.
