“When looking to find Coaching support for the mammoth task of bringing together and aligning over 100 different companies to complete over $2 billion worth of work in a tight time frame of 5 years, I immediately thought to ring Kathryn. Not only did I know that she would be an invaluable resource, I also could rely on her strong network to nominate other coaches we could potentially use”.  HR Team, Construction Alliance Client

"I have worked with Kathryn for the last 2 years, her skills as an Executive coach have supported many of our high-potential talent to achieve development goals and key business results. Kathryn has an excellent style and can relate to all types of clients, it is because of this I also engaged Kathryn to facilitate a workshop for our in-house business coaches to improve their skills."  HR Team, Retail Client

“A quick note just to say, “Superb session yesterday”!!!  I wish you had been able to stay around to hear the AHA moments and the positive praise for your workshop from the participants. What you managed to deliver in just four hours was spectacular but so simple and so effective.  A drop in the bucket I know, but a great launching pad”. HR Team, Agricultural Client

“I was lucky enough to work with Kathryn for 18 months as she worked with our team on peak performance. Through individual coaching and support to our HR team and senior management Kathryn was able to influence positive change and development for the project team. Kathryn worked seamlessly with our HR team adding value and input to initiatives being implemented from an organisation perspective and was a great asset to the team” HR Team, Construction Client
