Our Story

Where We Began...

We started with a pilot group of 20 students. Today we have trained over 4500 coaches from 92 countries around the world.

Like most businesses, International Coach Academy started out as an idea. In 2000 Robyn Logan (CEO and Founder) was running an educational consultancy and training firm, where she went in to large companies and basically helped them sort out the 'people side' of their business. Robyn would regularly conduct 6 - 8 weeks training programs for 20 + employees. After each program she would conduct an evaluation to see the results. Interestingly enough not much had changed. People very quickly feel into old patterns and ways of doing things.

International Coach Academy (ICA) was created in the year 2000 with a vision to create a vibrant global community of coaches, and today is one of the worlds leading coach training schools.


Why Coaching?

So Robyn introduced what she called "Authentic Learning" at that time, which was in fact coaching...She assigned each participant a "trainer" to meet with them for an hour a week and support them to achieve whatever goals they had coming in to the training. 3 months later Robyn evaluated again - and found amazing results. This then led to an investigation then ended with coaching. Robyn Logan found, and employed a great personal coach, David Wood, and after 3 sessions she knew that this was a fantastic method of bringing about deep sustainable change.

Why Coach Training?

At around the same time as Robyn's "coach awakening" she was working with universities and other training institutions to them move current f2f courses online. Robyn had just finished her Masters in Education, specializing in Online Learning and was having a great time exploring the amazing potential the web offered training. It seemed a natural progression to share her new found love of coaching with the world via online training. CoachCampus and International Coach Academy were born.
