Novum, Our Story
The roots of Novum go back to Peter Bluckert, one of the UK’s leading figures in coaching, leadership development and organisational consultancy.
In the nineties Peter built a team of people and organisational development experts whose values, ethics and way of working, underpinned by principles of Gestalt psychology, reflected his own. ‘PB Coaching’ was born, a business that became and has remained one of the UK and Ireland’s leading executive coach training and development specialists.
In a fledgling industry PB Coaching aspired to promote standards and ethics and to always put quality first. The business has been closely associated with the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC), now Europe’s largest professional coaching body, since its inception, and was one of the first organisations to be approved to provide EMCC accredited coach training programmes at Foundation, Practitioner and Senior Practitioner levels.
As the reputation of PB Coaching grew and the brand became synonymous with coach training excellence, relationships were forged with Leeds Beckett University (formerly Leeds Metropolitan University) and the Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School, University College Dublin. Long standing partnerships with both these institutions, with whom we train the highest quality executive and business coaches to Postgraduate level, remain firmly in place.
