999th Executive Coach Contest


CoachSource LLC, the world’s largest executive coaching network, adds its 999th and 1000th coaches to its network!

Several months ago and in an effort to promote the extraordinary growth of our executive coach database, we launched a fun and unusual guessing game called the “999th Executive Coach Contest” prompting participants to guess the correct date we would add our 999th executive coach. This week, after adding our 999th and 1000th executive coaches, we are closing out the contest and rewarding the lucky winners. Joseph Britton and Dory Willer, the two CoachSource coaches who both guessed two days from 11/9, the date the 999th coach applied, will each receive a $50(USD) Amazon gift card and we will be donating $999(USD) to World Vision in their names; a non-profit CoachSource actively supports. World Vision will use the funds to help complete the building of a school in the Limpopo region of Zimbabwe, a region decimated by AIDS. Dr. Underhill personally visited the school in 2010 (photos to the right).

A bit about our history…

In 1997 as Keilty, Goldsmith & Company, we first began tracking our executive coaches out of necessity to meet the increasing variety of client needs - and to track the increasing number of qualified executive coaches we were meeting worldwide.  We built a custom database containing 20+ fields of information on each coach.  By 2002, as Alliance for Strategic Leadership (A4SL), the database exceeded 70 executive coaches.  In 2003, the database underwent great growth as we stretched our reach to accommodate our largest client, Dell.  In 2006, the CoachSource™ brand name was launched, with over 200 coaches tracked.  By 2010, we neared 850 coaches.  Though we’ve mostly slowed our recruiting efforts in the later years, we still receive 1-4 applications per week.  And now here we are, adding our 999th and 1000th coaches to our network - two coaches residing across the world from each other.

Thank you to all for participating in our 999th Executive Coach Contest!
