Kay uses a learner driven, experiential approach in her work. She is always prepared to be challenged with unusual development requests, and often uses actors for drama workshops to embed knowledge, skills and attitudenal change.
Kay has held a variety of roles in her career - sales and marketing, office manager, HR person, Financial Controller, PA to the MD and trainer. She has worked in DIY retail, manufacturing, hospitality, an accounting centre and the gift and luggage sector. This means she has the common touch, as she is adaptable and versatile.
She is a qualified trainer, coach, counsellor and mentor. Her specialist areas are management and leadership development. Kay uses the Kouzes-Posner Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) 360 degree assessment to develop leaders, although we can explore The Leadership Challenge without the feedback diagnostic. She is passionate about customer service excellence, team dynamics and talent management.
Your learners are safe with Kay.
