Jim Smith & Johan Van Bavel


Training the Coach Trainer

The Train-the-Trainer of Coach Training program (TTT), created by a global team of coach trainers and led by two of the founders of ICF and ACTO, is a new benefit for all ACTO members, their staff, and their mentor coach teams. In this one-hour conference session, we will provide an overview of this five-module program and engage participants in a sample of the content. Participants will leave with clarity around the value of the program they can take back to their respective schools and ideas to raise the bar on trainer competency in their coach training classroom (live and online).

My name is Johan van Bavel. I’m born and raised in The Netherlands, so I’m a Dutch man. The family I was born in was working class. I have 3 brothers and 3 sisters. I’m the only one in that family with a bachelor’s degree. I’m living with my boyfriend. We have been together as a couple for 27 years now. 10 years ago I started a coach training school, which is accredited by the ICF as ACTP. I am an MCC. Proud of that! I love my work and enjoy it very much.

I’m a former rugby player and I still do love sports, although my physics doesn’t allow me to do so much.
Love to travel, love to meet cultures, love to meet people. It makes my life rich. Nice meeting you! Learn more at
