This session aims to confirm the chemistry between the alumn and the coach, to clarify the alumn’s coaching objectives and to agree the practical aspects of the program: duration, number of sessions and fees. The fees are defined by the coach, based on his/her current practice, and includes a rebate in recognition of support to the alumni networ
