KATE STEPENS - CEO, SMARTWORKS

Kimberley is a highly valued member of our interview coaching team. She is fantastic with Smart Works clients. She is very empathetic and builds them up so that by the end of the session their confidence and belief in their own ability to succeed is heightened.

She focuses on coaching the person by building awareness of the strengths and resources that they do have, thereby enhancing their self-worth and core confidence; rather than just sculpting answers to interview questions.

Clients are very comfortable in her presence. She is warm and enthusiastic and creates trust very quickly so that they can immediately feel at ease in their session and leave feeling more empowered and ready to succeed at interview.

KIM SIMMS - EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, HEAD OF PRODUCT, UBS INVESTMENT BANK

Kimberley's coaching helped me turn my career and my life into exactly what I wanted it to be. Identifying where I wanted to be and how to get there was the hardest part. She really listens and helps you to come up with your own solutions, challenges and probes where appropriate but more importantly gives you the tools to continue on without her guidance. For anyone wanting to make their lives more meaningful, focus on and address the changes that you want to make, I would recommend an initial session with Kimberley to see what insights she can unlock. She is warm, engaging, intuitive and builds a sense of trust and ease very quickly. I felt equally challenged, motivated and supported throughout our coaching  work together.

JAMES MALTIN - FUND MANAGER, RATHBONES INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT

In his book Success Principles, Jack Canfield highlights coaching as an essential ingredient in creating the life of your dreams.  Coming from the only man ever to have had seven books on the New York Times bestsellers list at once, you can forget about whether or not you need a coach; the question is which one.  Luckily you've just found her. 

Each of us deserves to reach our full potential, but it must be claimed by living according to time-honoured principles passed down through generations.  Kimberley is a rare being who not only knows, understands and lives these principles, but crucially has the ability to engender that understanding within you.  Steve Jobs taught us to "have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become".  Kimberley's coaching bestows that courage, helping you feel your heart and enabling you to live a life guided by intuition.  The answers rest within us; working with Kimberly helps to reveal them.  Start today; I wish you every success.

KRISTY CASTLETON - FOUNDER, REBEL& SOUL & MD, QUINTESSENTIALLY EVENTS ASIA

Kimberley helped me unearth problems that were holding my business performance back that I wasn't even conscious of, clarify the issues I was aware of with ease and help me realise the type of global business and team leader I want to be. I've learnt more about my business-self in 5 weeks than I have from reading business books and attending training courses for 5 years. I can't recommend her coaching enough. 

TONI ASSIRATI - HEAD OF EDUCATION AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT, THE ROYAL PARKS

As a senior manager, you are expected to know all of the answers and sometimes you need to know when to ask for and receive help.

Kimberley was the perfect person to help me through a very difficult transition from redundancy into my future career. She is very qualified as an individual coach and group trainer and this was noticeable though the exercises and discussions which we carried out in our meetings. Kimberley has great knowledge and understanding of techniques explaining our progress at all times, illustrating that she is an excellent communicator. I greatly admire Kimberley’s patience, calmness and how she conducted herself at all times. I would highly recommend Kimberley to support anyone as a Coach and endorse her skills and experience as a trainer.

MIRANDA LINDSAY-FYNN - DIRECTOR, STANLEY DAVIS GROUP LTD

We bought Kimberley in as a leadership coach in support of retaining and promoting high performing key managers and high performing talent by giving candidates a proven framework to tap into the best of themselves.

Candidates reported that the coaching programme made them feel more confident, enhanced and improved their professionalism, work load management and strategic planning, control of  their stress levels and greater empathy with their colleagues and in running their teams.

The coachees all commented positively on Kimberley’s style and ease in creating trust and rapport, her experience,professionalism and empathy paired with a good degree of challenge that expanded their thinking to create new solutions for the challenges ahead and to be future focused.

The programmes were very successful and the impact of personal and professional growth and leadership skills truly discernable, thank you.

JUSTIN ARMSTRONG - DIRECTOR, LT HARPER, CYBER SECURITY RECRUITMENT

The coaching process raised my level of self awareness relating to my cognitive approach. This has been useful in helping me overcome challenges across the working week. Developing my mindset and attitude has been the most valuable part of the process. Through talking things through it has helped remind me that challenges are to be expected and it is imperative to have a clear long term vision that helps get through the hard stuff.

I found direction around the topic of neuroscience and evaluating my own strengths interesting and useful. From a leadership skills perspective-the sessions reminded me of a few basics, gave me the confidence to look in the mirror and start to tackle some of the procrastination that I needed to address.

I would recommend the coaching process-the main thing is to be as aware as possible of what you want to get out of the programme and be ready to push yourself outside your comfort zone. I liked Kimberley’s direct nature…and was inspired by her knowledge, which assisted in my buy in and commitment.
