ICMI is co-founded by two well known and widely experienced coaches, namely, Mr Tony Dovale, the CEO of Life Masters, and Dr Emmanuel, the CEO of CEED Group, with combined coaching experience of more than 60 years. The desire of the Co-Founders of ICMI is to share their knowledge, skills, expertise and experience with other coaches and partners in the ICMI Team. This is in order to promote coaching and mentoring as the most potent action-learning processes to enhance the performance of people, teams and organisation.

Mr Tony Dovale and Dr Emmanuel Imevbore, as Co-Founders, promoters and top managers of ICMI provide the necessary guidance and motivation to the ICMI Team, which continues to grow and expand in different countries. The ICMI Team is comprised of highly skilled professional coaches, mentors, trainers, business leaders and consultants from different background, countries and cultures, hence our global outlook.

The abridged profiles of the Co-Founders are presented below.
