Over the last 25+ years, I have worked with a huge range of companies in a huge range of sectors – from SMEs to large corporations, and both private and public sector.

HR Director
Surrey Sussex Probation Trust

“We decided to use AI as part of our work in merging two organisations. People would need to talk about future ways of working in the new organisation and the senior management team was committed to finding the “best of both” and preserving and spreading great ways of working through the merger process.

AI fitted our requirements perfectly for this as it gave groups of staff the opportunity to really focus on what is working well for them now as well as working with their new colleagues on their vision for the future.”

“I am sure that without AI we would have had staff teams getting stuck on what isn’t working and worries about differences. Kate and Andy did a great job in training our internal AI facilitators who have been running AI sessions for each team within the new organisation.

These sessions have been very well received and I am confident that we will continue to use AI in organisational development projects in the future.”

Janet King

HR Manager – Learning, Development and Culture Change, Organisational Development, Southampton City Council

“Kate and her team helped deliver the first year of our Management Academy programme here at Southampton City Council.

Over 400 managers were involved – from Director-level down – in a series of half-day workshops designed to facilitate a cultural shift towards a more positive and coaching style of management.

The AI sessions were new to most managers and were well received at all levels, delivering a real energy and creating a climate of innovation and challenge. The coaching sessions helped reinforce key messages for managers and improve levels of confidence and understanding of this critical skill.

Kate’s team were a pleasure to work with and I would thoroughly recommend their programmes to others.”

“I would have no hesitation in recommending Kate. Her high levels of knowledge are complemented by outstanding communication and analytical skills.

She produces high quality work within agreed timelines and budgets. Kate has a passion for the work that she does and is committed to improving services for the most vulnerable people.”

Phil Adams

Chief Executive
Greenfields Community Housing Ltd

“The executive management team and I have been working with Kate for a couple of years to help us develop as an effective and dynamic team operating in a housing environment where change and improvement was required quickly.

Kate has an uncanny ability to put us at ease and help us to focus on the really big issues that will secure the necessary change and improvement for the benefit of our customers. Kate is calm, engaging and personable. Her style is adjusted to meet the needs of us as individuals and as a team. I am absolutely convinced that without Kate’s help we would not have achieved all that we have in such a short period of time.”

“We were so impressed with Kate’s approach that we invited her to help us with our Board’s visioning day. Kate helped us to think strategically and focus on a small number of priorities that would make the biggest difference to our residents and communities. We are now so much stronger and effective as a Board and Executive Team due to Kate’s help, support and guidance.”
