Kylie has been mentoring me for over 12 months and has provided invaluable insight, advice and guidance regarding my career progression. Kylie is a fantastic sounding board and trusted confidante, allowing me to discuss a variety of different topics with the ultimate aim of providing direction, clarity and focus.

Although I have worked with Kylie in different capacities for over 10 years, she still regularly surprises me with fresh insights and motivational perspectives. My engineering planning business has been blessed with plenty of work since start-up in 2011. But when I sprint from one complex task to the next for too long, I sometimes feel it is all about to topple into a chaotic abyss. That is when Kylie can throw me a line. She subtly reawakens in me an appreciation for the unique talents that have made my career a success. She kindly reminds me of who I am not. And she helps me see the chaos as a surfable wave of opportunity. Kylie’s highly-developed business sense, her deep reservoir of techniques to simplify decision-making, and her uncanny ability to find and focus on the right part of the picture; have made her an indispensable resource to me, and to my business. Incredible Her!--- Kurt Wiebe, Managing Director, Waterplan Consulting

Kylie’s wisdom has enabled me to embrace opportunities, to act strategically, and to be empowered to have a fulfilling career which compliments the needs of my family life.--- Jane Miller, Partner, Tindall Gask Bentley Lawyers
Kylie’s unique combination of empathy and discipline, coupled with a diverse background of business experience, make her an extraordinary mentor and leader. Thinking outside the square, looking at the bigger picture and keeping yourself ‘human’ throughout the challenges of business ownership are some of the underlying principles behind Kylie’s advice .Sessions with Kylie feel like casual chats with a long-time friend but she weaves structure and discipline within so the end results are direct actions and outcomes. Always listening and guiding you to find the answers, questions like “so how are you going to manage that?” drive discussion and planning and help you direct your thought processes to a solution that best suits you.--- Jo Shanahan, Managing Director, DVE Solutions
When I went to Kylie I was lost… having sold a successful business and ending a personal era; I was confused, overwhelmed and for the first time in my 15 years as a professional… I felt lost. Kylie helped me “re-map” my personal plan to success and put me back on a path; by using a positive, fun, casual approach that made me not only strive to move forward but see the “other side” and doing it in a fun way! I highly recommend Kylie for not only those whom are very successful, but those trying to get through their everyday “web”!! Thanks Kylie… incredibleu;--- Carmel Siciliano, Marketing Manager, Metro Property Development

Kylie has been and still is an inspiration as well as a coach for me. She has a unique blend of empathy, perception, strategy and energy that you need in a mentor / coach.

We commenced our mentoring sessions after Kylie saw something in me that I didn’t. Her investment of time, wisdom and her “glass half full” view on all things, leaves me feeling energised and empowered to be proactive in both work and in life.
Kylie tells it like it is. This is what creates the freedom to delve deep into fears and admit to the excuses that can hold us back.
Kylie has provided me with unique advice on how to navigate first-time motherhood whilst continuing to fulfil a demanding role within a male dominated industry.
