I met Kath during lockdown through a mutual colleague. She was recommended to me as someone who could help me reconfigure the business and help me with the IT transition I would need to make. She was amazing. As part of this process she helped me connect to a whole new business support process, she introduced me to some key people who have since helped me deliver some training online and overseen some work before publication. What a great positive person too and absolute super connector and solid business woman. Thank you Katharine so much
It has been a pleasure to work with Kath for a number of years now. I have always found her to be dedicated to the identified training, with an ability to provide and implement an understanding of topic and make the sessions enjoyable. She is skilled at assessing the room and tailoring her approach to generate the best outcomes for the personalities involved. I have always found Kath to be very approachable, helpful and enthusiastic. I know her to be a very skilled people person.
Kath, Phil and Chris were brilliant. Just brilliant. I cannot thank them enough for their help.
Thanks, I really enjoyed the course, learnt a lot, met some great people and there was a lot of quality material packed into just a few sessions. I think it was the perfect length for an introductory course and the online delivery made it super convenient.
This programme had a very positive effect on my business strategy and whole outlook. I was really impressed by the content and delivery. A very big thank you to all involved.
Kath provided a couple of superb sessions that were all at once engaging, informative and challenging. Her delivery was professional and thought provoking, and really drove the team to consider how it operated and interacted both internally and externally. As a result of the sessions the team were more outward thinking and customer service levels demonstrably improved. I would absolutely recommend Kath, from designing the sessions through to delivery and follow up I really felt listened to and am delighted with the outcomes as a result.
People will always be the reason great businesses succeed, but there has to be underlying strategy and understanding of detailed business acumen to complement the soft skills business owners have. There is no one better equipped than Katharine to marry the two together. Knowledge, IP and a great human who has fantastic coaching skills to provide the platform you need to succeed
WHAT WE DO
Delivering high-impact training
We provide highly interactive training on topics ranging from leadership and the art of managing people to developing a lean mindset and emotional logic. Having experienced all manner of training over the years we use a variety of tools, often with powerpoint as a guiding structure, including videos as well as props like lego and cards. We typically introduce a specific learning element then explore it so that the learning is quickly embedded.
Who we’ve helped
We have been supporting a leading FMCG market research and marketing consultancy develop its postioning and new market strategy and action as well as supporting key individuals to develop their management and leadership skills. From facilitating team away days to looking at personal effectiveness, our support has been wide-ranging and flexed to suit the key individuals over a number of years.
Supporting a global leader in mobility restraints, with a blended approach, providing executive leadership coaching supported by skills training to support the business through acquisition and COVID times to ensure clear strategic plans and actions. We have facilitated away days as well as providing lean training using the medium of lego to this business over a number of years.
We have developed our face to face consulting work to suit online delivery. One example has been our work delivering training for groups of start up businesses and entrepreneurs to help them to develop and test a business model for new product or service launches. Over the course of three half days, this delivery allows each person the opportunity to reflect on the impact that their idea can have, to get to know their customer and explore their value proposition(s). Looking at other elements such as channels and relationships, revenue streams and partnerships, this provides a great opportunity to develop a plan to bring ideas to market.
We supported a charity who were looking to develop their communication skills and relationships with customers. Through a series of conversations with key people, we designed a bespoke day which allowed the customer-facing team to spend a half day learning new skills and exploring ways to put them into practice. Running two-half days concurrently, allowed everyone to join the training, and saw the morning group putting their learning into practice immediately!
The Art of Managing People
We’ve built on an existing training course during the pandemic to deliver a course which suits groups of 8-10 people in a virtual environment. Sharing skills and tools we invite people to engage with each element and close with commitments for action. Feedback has been very positive and we are looking forward to delivering this face to face again when we can. Learning with coffee and cake has long been one of our methods!
