“Kate helped us transform vision into a functioning service”

“We were very fortunate to have Kate support us while developing a number of new services. Kate provided technical help, assistance with policies and service specifications and a great sounding board to sort out the glitches. Kate helped us transform vision into a functioning service and gave us the  confidence to give our ideas a go. Having access to Kate’s significant experience helped us negotiate contracts, recruitment issues, develop risk management strategies, undertake service promotion and develop our own management skills. Having Kate gently overseeing our projects was incredibly reassuring. Kate always manages to keep the clients at the heart of the business and has a strong sense of what is needed to promote justice and address inequities.  We looked forward to Kate’s visits and  our sessions were a pleasure. We are delighted to recommend Kate’s services.”

“We are very pleased with the results”

“We would like to offer our grateful thanks to you for taking on the responsibility of facilitating our Strategic planning meetings.

The prep work ensured that we came to the strategic planning meeting prepared and with ideas and that you yourself understood where we should focus our efforts.  The meeting flowed very well and provided opportunity for everyone to have a say. The templates you provided were easy to use.  Your strategic focus and knowledge of the important issues was a definite advantage. We are very pleased with the results.”
