Conrad Spendlove, Chief Executive Officer
Kylie’s Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity

“As someone who had grown into an executive role – and not formally applied for a job in over 15 years – I was completely at a loss as to how to find my next position, yet I knew I had to find something. Kylie coached me with sensitivity, great clarity and very perceptively. Her advice spanned (what seemed to me to be) a far broader spectrum than simply career coaching. It was precisely this broad spectrum that enabled me to (a) work out my current situation and (b) find my new role. Kylie did not get me a job, but I am certain I would not have found it without her guidance. The role that I now have was not advertised, but suits me perfectly. I would be happy to recommend Kylie to any of my friends and peers.” January 14, 2010

Tom Hannemann, Principal

She proved in a very short time her expertise and ability to transfer skills and techniques to seriously improve my interviewing techniques. Every session was highly productive as well as thoroughly enjoyable. The proof was in the end results of the role I secured. I would readily recommend Kylie to anyone serious about developing their Senior Management/Executive skills.” September 1, 2009

Robert Morrison, Project Director
Kylie’s Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, Creative

“Kylie did a great job for me in improving my resume, and offering sound, out of the box ideas. Kylie impresses with her high level of experience in career management, coaching and resume presentation. Kylie is able to offer her candidates a sound and independent view in how to best present themselves to employers, and helping them to highlight on valuable skills and experience. This is all important these days especially as the job market can be highly competitive; often first impressions and presentation are everything in getting yourself in front of a committee and getting the job. Strongly recommended also as a career coach.” August 12, 2009

David Seamans, Managing Director & Business Owner

"I have found Kylie to be a true professional in her field. Unlike most competitive offices, Kylie creates a highly motivated personal relationship with her clients and focuses on the individual as opposed to simply filling "jobs available".

Heinz Herrmann, Executive General Manager & Sales Director
Kylie’s Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity

"Kylie leverages her network of contacts well for her clients. Having done the "hard yards in the trenches" herself, she excels in career coaching.  Kylie developed her own methodologies in the coaching area. In addition to her process know-how, she understands that everyone is an individual. I believe Kylie’s services are a useful element of the HR tool box, which should be offered as employee benefits – to retain staff, not just for outplacement." August 4, 2009

Although I have taken a different path since then and returned to university to complete a Masters degree, I attribute the ease with which I made that decision and my determination to succeed in large part to recognising and rewarding my real professional goals. Kylie played a big part in this.” August 3, 2009

Nathan Jones, Change Management & Project Director
Kylie’s Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity

“Kylie is a very personable and professional individual who is prepared to look beyond the obvious to achieve results. I approached Kylie to help me find a new job. What she provided was a new way of approaching my career, the way I looked at employment and, most importantly in my opinion, my own understanding of myself and the value of my experience and training. Kylie helped me find the confidence to stop "wandering lost in the wilderness" and focus on the things I know and enjoy. I can certainly recommend Kylie as someone who is willing to work outside the box and offer help and guidance.” August 1, 2009
