  • Spark FX 2022: The Power of Coaching

    Join Fred Chapman, Lorie Corcuera, and Debra Coleman for a deep dive into coaching within the VFX industry as part of this year's Spark FX conference.

Kind Words
"My fortnightly 45 minutes with Fred have fast become an integral part of my approach to work and life. Having an objective listener who challenges you to see things from a different perspective is empowering. In exploring how to overcome present obstacles I have learnt more about what makes me tick, and connected with a deeper sense of self than I expected.
If you want to shine a brighter light through the fog that we all navigate on the daily, ask Fred. He’s got the skills!
