TESTIMONIALS

Katy has a wealth of knowledge on which to draw to create bespoke development programmes that really help teams to connect and better collaborate

Stuart Williamson

Director of Communications

I am so impressed with Katy’s delivery online - she has wonderful energy alongside tremendous and valuable knowledge and insight. She’s a great listener, paying close attention to everyone with a light touch so even the most reluctant voice will speak up. She sets up her sessions with thought and attention to individual needs and detail - so we all take what we want from the experience. Fabulous - thank you Katy!

Janie Van Hool

Author and Leadership Impact Specialist

I attended a virtual one-hour session facilitated by Katy. I was not only impressed with her knowledge of the subject matter (influencing), but her ease of delivery over a screen. Having facilitated all my offering on-line since Covid 19, her skill at keeping engagement should not be underestimated – she makes it look deceptively easy when it’s a real art form. She’s passionate about what she does and has a practical and encouraging style. I have no hesitation in recommending her.

Elspeth Mills Rendall

Barrister, Mediator and Facilitator

Your approach is more professional that many I’ve experienced, from first impressions through logistics, delivery and follow-up. The virtual workshop was best time I’ve spent this week, and I’ve had a great week! Thank you for a timely, impactful and significant session

Beverley Wiltshire-Payne

Business Owner

I have had the privilege of a number of coaching sessions with Katy over the last few months and she is amazing. She really understands people so well and has allowed me to grow as a person throughout our sessions. She knows exactly what to ask and when, and uses some brilliant tools to support the conversations. For someone who decided to take redundancy and was a little unsure what way to take my career, Katy was there to challenge, test, talk and coach me through some really tough decisions. I’d recommend Katy to anyone and everyone. I can’t wait to see what the future brings

Kevin Newport

Mortgage and Protection Expert

“I was completely new to coaching, and had no idea what to expect, what if anything I would get from it or what was expected of me. In all honesty it’s been the most amazing experience. Running my own business, I was keen to explore how to manage my time better, find ways to develop ideas for business and personal progression, and look at the way I work in a more critical way. The impact from these coaching sessions benefits me personally & my business as a whole

Lisa Richardson

Director and owner Spotless Interiors

This was really interesting and prompted a lot of reflection on previous difficult conversations and ways in which I could have done things differently. With each section you covered, there was an example that I could link it to - I found it super helpful. Fabulous content and facilitation, thank you!

Katy excels at many things and her skill with people is one I have been eager to learn from. From supporting emerging talent, to coaching and challenging others to be their best, Katy delivers time and time again. Katy has an energy and passion for her craft

James Bramleigh

E2E Delivery Manager

I’ve attended a couple of virtual workshops and am consistently enthused by Katy’s delivery. She captures her audience and imparts her wealth of knowledge seamlessly. Sessions from Katy are a definite must-do, I’ve been blown away by how much I learnt! In just 90 minutes Katy covered content I would normally expect to last a day, but in a way that felt enjoyable and easy to learn. I absolutely love Katy’s style of delivery, I’ve yet to meet a trainer who can do remote sessions that are as engaging as hers.  And the unique follow up guide was a perfect addition, meaning I didn’t need to scribble notes or have a bunch of slides that had lost their context. Thank you Katy!

TESTIMONIALS

Katy understood exactly what was needed and delivered workshops that have created lasting impact. Feedback from our workshops has been overwhelmingly positive with delegates enjoying Katy’s easy and relatable style, her deep subject knowledge and range of techniques and interaction which brought fun and energy to the sessions.

Many managers have already implemented changes as a direct result of the workshops, and teams are talking about the differences that they are experiencing as a direct consequence.

Working with Katy couldn’t have been easier or more enjoyable. She is incredibly supportive and quickly builds a high level of trust. Her passion and know-how are inspirational and shine through! Thank you Katy – I look forward to working with you again

Rachel Wells

Head of HR, Polyco healthline

Katy was really open to understanding our needs and tailoring the content of the session to ensure it was relevant to our employees. She is a very knowledgeable and skilled trainer who not only engaged a large group virtually, but also fostered participation. Her fluid but concise style resonated well and allowed for effortless conversational delivery without losing focus of the learning outcomes.

After the session, we received really positive feedback from staff, all of whom said they would be keen to attend other sessions facilitated by Katy
