Coaching Diploma Graduates

“Completing the Diploma in Life and Business coaching with Coach Academy PLUS has been an incredible life changing journey that has left me with a new found purpose and confidence, renewed energy and an unwavering belief in the capabilities and potential of myself and others. It has been an honour and privilege to have been trained and coached by Noel & Elizabeth. Their dedication and commitment to coaching in all its wonderful dimensions and the energy, support and encouragement they so willingly give to all the students is second to none. The training was highly participative, experiential, challenging and a lot of fun. As the course comes to a close, I move forward with many new skills, tools and insights that I know I will use in all I do, both professionally and personally. Thank You Both.”
Jan Harte – Human Resources Director – Stryker Orthopaedics – Cork

“This is not your normal diploma course. This is an awesome life changing experience. It equips you with the tools and confidence to choose your own destiny and if you desire, to coach others to choose their own destiny. For me this is by far the most valuable education experience to date. Thank you Noel and Elizabeth.”
Roy McGrath BBs Hons. – Lecturer C.I.T.

“The Diploma in Life and Business coaching run by CoachAcademy Plus was great fun. I learnt a lot of new ideas and skills that I have already applied in my professional and personal life. My understanding of coaching has changed completely since starting the course last October. Noel and Elizabeth created a very positive learning environment that encouraged interaction and experimentation by all. They provide excellent one- to-one support at all times. For those interested in learning about coaching I would strongly recommend this course.”
Dermot Sheehan – Quality Unit Manager – JMPMI

“I thank you most sincerely for the wonderful experience of your Diploma course. It has been a most enlightening journey, one which has indeed equipped me with excellent new skills for the future. I also wish to acknowledge the total professionalism of your organisation and look forward to many years of working together.”
Sean Tobin – Managing Director – Goalpost Ireland

“I have just completed the Diploma in Life and Business Coaching with Coach Academy PLUS. I found the style with which Noel and Elizabeth delivered the course suited me and made learning very easy. Noel and Elizabeth are enlightened educators, who create a safe environment in which you can experiment and develop. The course has made a huge difference in both my business and personal life. Now I take time to listen actively and understand fully. Realising that to get the best from colleagues one needs to let them come up with their own solutions, not to tell them what to do. By listening and encouraging, I can now help people reach their full potential. That awareness is all thanks to Noel, Elizabeth and the wonderful course they run. For business or just personal development, I would recommend this course to anyone, who wants to reach their full potential.”
Garry O’Sullivan – A.C.I.I. – Business Unit Manager – Hibernian Insurance Co. Ltd – Cork Airport

“This course proved to be a life changing experience for me. The relaxed style of presentations on the course greatly eased fears and encouraged full participation by everyone. We are all capable of achieving much more and being the best we can be. Completion of this course gives us the privilege of realising this and allows us to spread this powerful message. The follow up and support service provided by Noel has greatly assisted and encouraged me in my quest to launch my coaching career.”
Gerry Fitzgerald – Business Coach

“I completed my Life & Business Coaching course last May. This course was organised by Noel Brosnan who is also the main tutor. I can say that my decision to attend this course was one of the best decisions I have made in my life as it has transformed the way I interact with people. I have found that Noel’s teaching skills and his ability to relate the theory of coaching to our daily lives has been excellent. Noel has a great understanding of the way human beings think and react to different circumstances and I have found his humorous approach to life very stimulating. I am hoping to continue learning from Noel in some other capacity in the future.”
Paul Martin – Financial Accounting Manager – Black and Decker

“Participation in the Diploma in Life & Business Coaching Course has benefited me enormously, both professionally and personally. The course gives you a really good mix of practice and theory. The supporting materials provided were wonderful and the tutors were excellent.”

Train the Trainer Graduates

The Train the Trainer programme delivered by Noel Brosnan was giant steps ahead of other similar programmes our Group had experienced. From the start the presenter built strong rapport within the group and imparted powerful, interesting and relevant material in a convincing way. It was a totally empowering and thought provoking experience. I loved it!

Ray Ryan, Director, Maybe International Creative Consultancy Ltd

I decided to choose Noel Brosnan as a trainer when obtaining my QQI Train the Trainer qualification. I appreciated his coaching approach to learning and his flexibility in accommodating different learning styles. I believe this approach has enabled me to take a more flexible and creative approach to training, and in the process of learning the experience was far more meaningful on a personal level.

Tracy Aspel, Communications Coach and Trainer, Limerick.

The train the trainer course given by Noel has to be one of the best courses I have ever attended. It’s an excellent course for all trainers to get a comprehensive understanding of what is important for a trainer to consider while delivering programs. It is energetic, refreshing, insightful and provides a dimension totally different from other training programs. I actually learned more practical skills in this course than I did in my 2 year diploma in Training and Development in UCC and thoroughly enjoyed myself at the same time. Take this course for a complete paradigm shift. Thank you Noel

Noel Brosnan offered a professional course that was highly motivational and inspiring. Each session was filled with case studies relevant course material and delivered with enthusiasm and in a friendly and relaxed style. Very interactive course which we all gained from and can take forward into our personal and professional life. We could not have asked for more from Noel. Many thanks.

Deirdre Brougham, Programme Manager, Enterprise Ireland.

I just completed a Train the Trainer course with Noel Brosnan of CoachAcademy PLUS. I highly and absolutely recommend this course. You will learn a huge amount from Noel and also from the other people on the course – including yourself. Noel took the time to organise people with different backgrounds on the course, so you benefit a lot from seeing how other people work too. This course was excellent value for money and will give you far more than just the QQI Level 6 certificate.

“I have just successfully completed the QQI Train The Trainer Course; it has given me a new perception of adult learning both as a participant and as a instructor. I can seriously say that for me, Noel is a great mentor and facilitator. I have gained more than new skills and an enhanced knowledge from him; I have also gained a personal maturity due to his distinctive method of facilitation. This experience has had a big influence on how I approach my methodology of instruction.”
