“ I have found the experience of working with Kathy as very beneficial. She was able to challenge my views and thinking which prompted me to analyse myself and how I interact with others. She has provided me sound advise from her vast experience within many different business environments which I have found very helpful. ”

Her input has enabled me to have the confidence to sort out my staffing problems in my office and 6 months on I have a well functioning and fully motivated office. ”

Richard Buer, Agent, NFU Mutual

“As my coach and mentor I found Kathy non- judgemental and truly a critical friend. As a consequence of the guidance and experience she brought to the exercise I have certainly been able to see my business in a new and refreshing perspective and hopefully been able to find some new and refreshing solutions to the issues I face there.”

Matthew Price, Agent, NFU Mutual

“Kathy is an excellent mentor ... a real gem!”

Susan Hand, Agent, NFU Mutual

“Kathy obviously draws on a great wealth of experience during her coaching sessions. I found her approach to be very useful and practical, tackling issues from a new prospective, which really made me think. After only a short time she had a unique understanding of the demands of my job, was able to describe my personality type and was therefore able to offer sensible and workable solutions. I found Kathy's coaching to be enjoyable and a positive experience and as a result I have become a more effective and confident manager.”

Chris Stockdale, Agent, NFU Mutual

“Kathy facilitated a 9 month leadership programme for senior leaders in RSA. During that time Kathy demonstrated energy, passion and a determination to succeed for all of the delegates and, importantly, the programme as a whole. Kathy formed strong and, in some cases, life changing coaching relationships.”

Mark Skinner, HR Business Partner, RSA

“I would like to recommend Kathy, following her fascinating seminar at the LPI Conference in September 2011. It was by far the best presentation of the conference, providing the audience with real examples that can be applied in practice and delivered in a professional and interesting way.”

Sarah Nalborczyk, Head of Learning and Organizational Development, Emerald Group Publishing Limited

“Kathy's effect on me will be far reaching. She was instrumental in my continuing development to reach my goal of being the best I can be.”

Martin Wiles, Agent, NFU Mutual

“Kathy is a highly knowledgeable and professional learning and development expert. I was lucky to be a part of one of Kathy's coaching groups on a leadership development program in 2011. Kathy's open and collaborative coaching style helped me to identify areas for development and understand what I needed to do to reach my leadership potential. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Kathy.”

Mark Kinghorn, Global Enterprise Brand Manager, Vodafone

“As a coach, Kathy created a level of trust within our group that allowed us to express ourselves freely, which brought about a level of openness that was inspirational. I've put on more new business in the 4 months since the course than I did in the previous 8 months and I'm now mentoring 2 colleagues in the office, to bring in more business from other sources.”

Neil Whitley, Agent, NFU Mutual

“Working with Kathy has helped me develop myself and consequently my business. Kathy’s coaching skills have been instrumental in me being able to refocus on myself and rediscovering what makes my business one of the company’s highest performing agencies. I needed her expert, unbiased help to move my business from high performance to a new level. The results in 6 months are inspiring. Thank you Kathy.”

Steve Bartlett, Agent, NFU Mutual

“She has a genuine passion and enthusiasm for seeing people grow and flourish in their workplace, and will always invest her energy and experience in supporting that aim, regardless of the time demands or effort. Her approach is supportive yet challenging, questioning yet guiding when required, and she is extremely committed to sustaining the development of each of her coachees for the long-term.”

Stuart Duff, Partner, Pearn Kandola

“Kathy has worked with many of NFU Mutual’s self employed Agents to help them realise their own potential and enhance their ability to lead the Agencies under their control. She has a natural ability to put delegates at ease and enables them to discuss the challenges they face. Without exception, Kathy has added value for everyone she has worked with, enabling individuals to have the confidence to tackle issues which have been ignored in many cases for a number of years.”

Chris Roberts, National Agency Development Manager, NFU Mutual

“ With the fantastic knowledge, support, and effective tools Kathy has been able to provide on an on-going basis, for the first time I have been able to achieve business goals and modulate my behaviour to suit the business better. Our staff seem happier and have a clear direction where they are going. It would not have been possible without the one to one coaching sessions from Kathy. She has vast knowledge combined with a no-nonsense common sense approach. ”
