Join the MOE Foundation’s Catriona Horey and Elizabeth Wainwright for an evening of Autumn nature exploration and personal and professional development in London’s Battersea Park.

Tuesday 11th October (5.30pm-7.30pm), Battersea Park, London, SW11.

We’ve received great feedback and had stimulating discussions following our inaugural Learning from Nature workshop, and so we’d love those of you who were unable to attend in August to join us for our second such workshop! Come along and, in a fun and creative way, discover or enhance your relationship with nature and wilderness.

“Thank you both for your planning and consideration which has gone into this event. Great space and energy!” - Learning from Nature participant

We are aiming to create a space in which you can relax, think beyond usual boundaries, and experiment with new possibilities in coaching (and be experimented on!).

“Very relaxing – helped me calm down.” - Learning from Nature participant

Our hope is that you will leave our workshop feeling refreshed, inspired, and in tune with what nature has to teach us all. And so we invite you, in a safe and playful environment, to:

  • Take a break from urban surroundings; from computers and commuters!
  • Learn from the wonder of nature, and explore how to use it to unlock potential and help transform your thinking. 
  • Consider new perspectives and be inspired to dream big.
  • Connect with yourself, others and the environment around you.
  • Learn nature coaching tools and techniques, which you can use to help yourself, your clients and others to thrive. These techniques involve the use of natural objects and imagination.

“The facilitators are very relaxed in the holding of the group. Lovely to spend time connecting to nature.” - Learning from Nature participant

A bit more about the coaches:

Catriona focused the first ten years of her career on transforming the performance of charities and social enterprises and of leaders in social impact in London, New York, and beyond.  In 2014, building on this experience, she committed to working as a leadership and life coach to help empower others to develop and thrive.

A MOE Certified Coach and Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (The Coaches Training Institute), Cat's clients are often leaders in social/environmental innovation; high potential professionals; and women looking to redefine and embrace their professional and personal priorities.  

A firm believer in the MOE Foundation’s work, Cat is a MOE Operating Board member, coach trainer, assessor, supervisor, and train the trainer.  She is also a focused interviewer for The Future Leaders Trust; Teaching Leaders assessor; Lane4 associate and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.

The daughter of conservationists, Cat has worked on social and environmental projects in India, China, Mongolia, Ecuador and the USA. She is excited to be developing an arm of her coaching services which brings in the power and wonder of nature at an individual and group level.

Elizabeth has lived and worked around the world, including in Africa, Asia and Central America, and has spent thousands of hours working on, and thinking about, community and individual development. She’s the co-leader of international community development charity CHGN, as well as a writer and a personal coach for 'Changemakers', creatives and thinkers. She travels quite a bit and loves the wilderness.

Elizabeth has an MSc in International Development, an NCTJ Photojournalism accreditation, and is a MOE-certified coach. She believes in the mission of the MOE Foundation, and is on the MOE Operating Board. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA).

Elizabeth was the Deputy Editor of the UK’s longest-running Environmental Magazine (Resurgence & The Ecologist). She takes any opportunity she can to play / hike / explore in nature; this has seen her on wilderness safaris in Africa, and hiking alone through the snow-covered mountains of Japan’s north island, Hokkaido. She has seen and felt how learning from nature can positively impact our communities and ourselves. Elizabeth is working towards a Community Coaching certification and is excited to explore the fusion of wilderness and nature with individual and community transformation.
