Women in Wholesale doubles number of coaches for academy

Women in Wholesale has increased its coaching academy by 20% and doubled the number of coaches that offer one-to-one coaching for people looking to unlock their full potential at work.

Academy members receive six free coaching sessions from fully accredited trainers focused on enhancing skills and what can be achieved at work.

“The Coaching Academy is making a meaningful impact to women in the channel ­– the early feedback has been really promising,” said WiW Founder and head of communications at JJ Foodservice, Elit Rowland. “We want to help more women to prioritise personal development.”

Part of last year’s coaching cohort, Ashleigh Cheetham, Trading Controller at Unitas Wholesale said, “I feel like I’m a totally different person to who I was seven months ago. It has made me think differently and I approach challenges with a different mindset.”

Laura Wileman, group business manager at Finsbury Food Group said her time working with her WiW coach has been the most formative of her career to date. “To make the most of your coaching experience you have to be willing to push yourself and lean into difficult conversations whilst you have a coach to support you. I would strongly recommend this!”
