Your Coaching Business, Empowered

Forbes Coaches Council is a community of fiercely passionate and motivated business and career coaches. We empower our members through opportunity, connections, and support.



It’s increased my exposure.

“[The Council] has done an amazing job at creating opportunities for me to connect with national and international media sources to gain exposure for my business and market myself as an expert in my field. I feel like I have the backing of a publicist, agent, and personal networker.”

Strenghten Your Personal Brand

One of the biggest challenges coaches face is building trust with potential clients. While you may publish on your own blog or social media pages, you need greater influence and credibility to stand above the competition.

As a member of Forbes Coaches Council, you can amplify your voice by answering advice columns, authoring articles, appearing in videos, and more. Members are selected for the Council based on their depth and diversity of experience, then invited to share their insights via CommunityVoice on

More opportunities than I can pursue.

“Connections make all the difference, and that’s exactly what this [Council] provides. If I ask for something, they inevitably move me a step or two closer to the outcome I want. It’s so refreshing to have a team who can present more opportunities than I can pursue.”

Charles Gilkey

Founder, Productive Flourishing

Build Meaningful Connections

Coaches work tirelessly to add value to their clients’ lives. But more often than not, struggle to find groups that add true value to their own.

Members of Forbes Coaches Council join a curated community of collaborators, cheerleaders, and thought partners. In the Council, coaches work together to overcome challenges, brainstorm innovations, or simply hold each other up through difficulties and achievements.

Where powerful ideas take form.

“[The Forum is] a practical, powerful community of professionals where idea-generation and collaboration spark business and career coaches into higher impact work and earning potential.”

Dave Ursillo

Author, Teacher, Story Guide

Get On-Demand Support

It’s no small feat to run a business on your own. And while most coaches highly value their independence, we all need a network of support from time-to-time.

The team behind Forbes Coaches Council becomes an extension of your own team. We want membership to work for you, and not be hard work. Members can contact our concierges, community team, and editors anytime via chat, phone, or email for help with technical support, resource finding, introductions, and more.
