The value of a Prism Award is due in large part to the amazing results experienced by clients of the coaches who nominate for Prism. In addition to the many Regional Prism Winner recognized over the years by the ICF Vancouver Charter Chapter (see full list here) we also have a number of well-known organizations who’ve received International PRISM Awards.

PRISM winners, Rogers Communications and JOEY RESTAURANT GROUP were supported by Essential Impact and their team of ICF credentialed coaches.

PRISM winner BC Housing of Canada were supported by Knightsbridge (now Lee Hecht Harrison Knightsbridge). ICF Vancouver Chapter member Julie Jones, PCC (currently Advantage Consulting) was the coaching lead on the initiative.

 

Here’s a look at these homegrown, International PRISM winners…..
