Questions?
How is the Masterclass delivered?

The Masterclass will take place on Zoom Meeting. In order to get the most out of the masterclass, you'll need an internet-connected computer / laptop, tablet or mobile device with a microphone and camera.

What’s the format of the masterclass?

The Masterclass will be a mix of instruction from our Masterclass expert, interactive exercises practising using the new tools and an interactive Q&A session.

I’m not free on the day / at the time of the Masterclass. Can I still take part?

Unfortunately not. Much of the value of the Masterclass will come from interactively practising the new tools in small groups, and this needs to be done live.

Will you be sharing a recording of the Masterclass?

No. Because a good part of the Masterclass will be run in breakout rooms, we won’t be sharing a recording of the session.

Will I be able to ask questions to the speakers?

Yes, there will be time throughout the session and towards the end to ask questions.

What equipment will I need to take part?

You'll need an internet-connected computer / laptop, tablet or mobile device with sound.

What will I need to prepare ahead of the Masterclass?

If you have time, it would benefit you to review the exercises and coach guidance for each exercise, which we’ll send you ahead of the Masterclass.

Do I need to be a coach to take part in the masterclass?

Yes, though it’s fine if you’re right at the start of your coaching journey. Some basic knowledge of coaching skills will be important.

I’m already a Firework licensed career coach. Will I learn anything new in the Masterclass?

Yes. The content of this Masterclass, including the two tools, is brand new and not part of the Firework Programme.

Is the masterclass discounted for Firework coaches?

Yes. If you are a Firework licensed coach, you will have received an email about this. If you haven’t please contact us on [email protected].
