Ways To Access Kiikstart

What they said...

  • Ali Uren of Kiikstart provided our employees with creative, modern and proven approaches to generate new opportunities in an increasingly competitive and changing market. Since commencing the program, our employees are more confident and can tell their career story highlighting individual achievements and transferable skills. I would highly recommend the Kiikstart program to businesses and individuals who are going through transitions or wanting to take a new career path.”

  • I have worked with Ali (Kiikstart) for approximately two years, in transitioning Coca Cola Operational Employees out of Coca Cola to other opportunities, due to the closure of the Manufacturing Plant, Thebarton (SA). Ali’s passion and driving characteristics are infectious, plus the ability to build individual and corporate relationships quickly ensures success.

    It’s been a pleasure working with Ali, her unique business style and business strategy differentiates from her competitors and is was one of the sole reasons why we engaged Kiikstart.

    Kiikstart has assisted in fulfilling Coca Cola's objective to ensure it provided the best support it could possibly provide to its staff from senior leadership across all areas of production in preparing them to become job ready in the new world after they left Coca Cola employment.

    On a personal level, I too have now engaged with KiikStart to provide me with this unique service to enable me to take the next step in my professional journey."

  • So much has changed and I’m not sure I can fully quantify it.

    I can tell my story better. I can see my value and that of the work. I can dream. I can question. I can see patterns. I can see myself and how I make decisions. Habits are broken (bad(ish) ones). Things are more deliberate. Things are uncomfortable so change is happening.

    Thank you, Ali. This has been transformational and important. There is no going back. As said by Oliver Wendell Holmes “One’s mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions.”

  • Coaching with Kiikstart has been an incredible journey. I’ve been challenged to reflect on my talents, my organisation, how I present myself and how to build a personal brand. This is a new and innovative approach, no cookie cutting here. Management has moved on from its old way of thinking and Kiikstart’s approach is ahead of any organisation.”

  • Kiikstart helped me address my fears, concerns and perceived weaknesses. Being able to have honest and safe conversations about these issues allowed me to gain a deeper understanding of my own leadership style and business acumen. I was given the tools and guidance to challenge my thinking, articulate my goals, and most importantly, focus my attention on my strengths.”

  • My colleagues and I met Ali at a skills for the future event. What struck me immediately was her goodwill, approachable nature and strong sense of purpose and passion for her work and the industry. Lots of people talk about innovation, but Ali lives it. She has a global mindset and challenges the status quo.

    Over the course of working with her, Ali asked us the pointy questions at the right times to help us evolve our thinking and create work that is both practical and action oriented, and cutting edge and aspirational. I highly recommend her as a workforce strategist and learning and development coach.

    Ali keeps the customer and people at the centre of her thinking at all times, and her authenticity and creativity truly elevated our work. One of the greatest gifts Ali gave us was to share her skills and work so openly, which meant we’ve walked away with many more tools in our kit and a greatly enhanced internal capability.”

  • I can honestly say there has been a quiet little revolution that has resulted in a makeover in what we do and the way we present to our guests. Ali has helped our businesses by assisting us to deal with the tricky issues, and helping our team to come up with ways to do the job better. Choosing to live and work in the Outback can place people well out of their comfort zone and, while it may seem exciting, it’s like any job; it can be mundane and repetitive. Living close together and having to work on relationships at work, as well as outside of work, is challenging.

    She’s encouraged us to think imaginatively, to be creative, and to question work practices. If the actions don’t fit with our values and vision, then they have no place in our life.

    We are now thinking before we act and are empowered and confident as a group."

  • It has been inspirational working with Kiikstart as you get your mind working and thinking outside of the square on a daily basis.”

  • It was my pleasure to partner with Kiikstart during a significant project for Coca-Cola Amatil. Ali took the time to understand our needs and really tailor a program to maximise the benefits for our employees and create an experience that is totally unique, incredibly personalised and with a real focus on creativity and innovation.”
