She was the first one to be awarded the prestigious Professional Certified Coach (PCC) credential by the International Coach Federation (ICF). In the Eastern Africa region, she was also the first one to develop a coach training curriculum that received ICF approval. This automatically made her organization to become the first institute domiciled I East Africa to receive ICF accreditation.

In addition to one-on-one leadership coaching, Eileen is particularly passionate about embedding coaching and mentoring philosophy at the workplace. She terms it as the best approach to develop and retain talent, optimize productivity, develop a steady leadership pipeline, and build sustainable organizational growth and competitiveness. Borrowing from her mentor’s words, she terms this as her active legacy!

To advance the coaching industry in the region, Eileen steered the formation of the International Coach Federation (ICF) Kenya Chapter in 2011, which was officially launched in May 2015. Further, she has pursued partnerships with different seasoned institutes and industry leaders abroad to ensure that all her coaching and training programs have solid anchoring and are benchmarked on international standards.
