International organisations

SFiO sfio.org is the organisation for SF consultants, trainers and coaches. Mark and Jenny are both reviewed contributors (ie full members). 

SFiO publishes the journal InterAction, a great resource for SF coaches and consultants

SOLWorld (www.solworld.org) is the international open-access community of SF practitioners in organisations, management and business settings. Mark and Jenny were instrumental in organising the first two SolWorld conferences in 2002 and 2003, and continue to be at the centre of new developments within the group. We hold an international conference and other events each year.  In 2020 SOLworld has over 1000 members.

SOLWorldList is the email discussion group which forms part of SOLWorld. It's free to join, and in November 2011 had around 600 members.
