MSF (Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders) is the first organisation to successfully achieve EMCC ISMCP accreditation. The presenters – the Client, their Consultant and Assessor – will share the MSF journey and lessons learned that will be of benefit to any organisation considering how best to begin to develop a new mentoring and/or coaching programme, or continue to develop and enhance their existing programme management practice.
