Testimonials & Client Stories
In June 2017 my client Melinda started my Personal Branding Bespoke Premium Programme. She was a well-respected senior associate for the big four with a passion for fintech and was looking to move into a c-suite role through building her brand. I helped her shift her mindset from that of an unrecognised associate to stepping into a new role as a CEO. “I knew I had the skills and expertise to be in the c-suite, but I was struggling to step out of my comfort zone and take the necessary steps to make the change and go for what I really wanted. I was comfortable as a senior associate, but not fulfilled. I needed my brand to reflect my expertise, objectives and purpose.”
Exactly 8 months after completing the programme, Melinda landed her dream role at a multinational bank – a company that she had aspired to work with for many years. Now regarded as an authority in her niche, Melinda was asked to write a book and invited to give talks on international stages including TED. She stepped into the public sphere in her sector where she was now a regular interviewee for prestigious publications and media segments - an impressive transformation in a short 14 months. Melinda continues to implement the action steps from the programme and furthers her work with KM in a regular coaching capacity and monthly branding campaign, to keep herself on track with her brand and goals.
“Kelly was able to help me define my personal brand in a way that felt aligned with my values and experience and simultaneously highlighted my accomplishments appropriately. Kelly is talented, insightful and action/results-orientated, which I appreciate, and the quality of her work and team is brilliant.”
“I loved working with Kelly..using her amazing skills she introduces concepts that you may not have thought of before. She takes your perspective and develops it, so you create a strong brand, centred in who and what you are."
“Working with Kelly has been nothing short of transformational. I signed on for her Personal Branding campaign which has been so instrumental in helping me to develop and refine my personal brand.. She has been one of the best investments I’ve made.”
In 2018 I began work with my client Jan, an accomplished director and business owner with a passion for tech, who was looking to expand his business through building his brand. He signs on to The Personal Brand Bespoke Premium Programme™ where he began his journey of building an authentic, powerful brand to raise his profile and expand his company. I worked with him through various aspects of the programme, which ultimately enabled a change in his mindset from that of a business owner to stepping into his role as the face of the company and a leader.
The year after completing the programme, Jan’s business experienced an incredible 140% increase in revenues and success rate – and was named the fastest growing innovation consultancy in Europe by the COST Association, an impressive feat to accomplish for a young consultancy. Jan continues to implement the action steps from the programme and continues to work with KM for a on-going branding social media campaign and regular coaching capacity, to keep himself and his company front and centre in his niche.
“Kelly helped me to find my life-purpose, rediscover what lights me up and feel fully alive again. She’s the perfect balance of support and inspiration. She shows me how to thrive while giving me the tools to push into new territory on a regular basis. I’m learning so much about what I’m capable of. Very transformative!”
“From the moment I started working with Kelly, I was impressed. I am an individual who has very limited time, travels extensively and holds my reputation as an important part of my personal and professional brand. To have someone who could raise my brand to another level in such a short time, and exceed my expectations, is quite remarkable."
“Kelly is amazing! Her work with me is a transformation on so many levels. She helped me advance my brand, from my approach to my business and team, what I’m wearing and how I present myself, to the impression I’m making online. My brand now feels like it really makes the right statement about me."
“My recent experience with Kelly transformed me – inside and out. The KM programme helped me to create a fantastic personal brand by going through a highly intensive process that identified my current situation and gaps on a more comprehensive level, in order to clearly define my message and my goals.
Establishing my Personal Brand was central to everything we did – from developing my leadership style, to planning and auditing my current wardrobe to updating and revising my social media, Kelly’s extensive experience and knowledge helped me to achieve the goals we set out at the start.
I would highly recommend working with Kelly for anyone who feels they are a bit stuck and would like to create new opportunities for their career. I had changed careers – investment banking to real estate – and was experiencing significant growth in my business, had a baby, and I needed to incorporate being a working mother and wanted to present my brand with confidence in a new industry to my clients. My change professionally in January prompted me to contact Kelly…my only regret is that I should have done it years ago!”
“Working with Kelly to review my brand was very rewarding. Her sessions are interesting, action-based and well organised. I now feel more confident about how I’m representing myself and I know I’m investing wisely. It's given me tools for redefining my leadership approach and confidence that I’m presenting a strong brand and my best self."
“As a management consultant and professional woman, my brand plays a significant role in how I present my company. Kelly understood my industry and niche and was able to get the results I wanted within the timeframe we set out. I’m delighted to recommend her as I think this is such a valuable investment as a business owner.”
“Through my work with Kelly I was able to make noticeable adjustments that created powerful, positive changes in my life. I have a clearer direction. I feel comfortable with myself, accepted and more confident. She has a natural way with people and doing her programme added so much balance and insight to my busy, stressful life. A real life-changing experience.”
