About Us

In an era of rapid change, financial uncertainty and wavering consumer confidence, business as usual is risky.

At Kiikstart, we see these challenges as infinite opportunities to learn, change, experiment and innovate.

Kiikstart offers business design and learning and development services so people can respond creatively and strategically to the skill gaps, threats and risk associated with working and doing business in a rapidly changing world.

Our forward thinking style of business and career development finds ways through the stress, worries and challenges of the modern world. In doing so, we create bolder, better business.

We develop businesses that are commercially viable, visionary and globally aware.

Led by founder and director Ali Uren, we work with the pacesetters, influencers and game changers of tomorrow to respond creatively and strategically to change and challenges.

We design not only the strategies needed to take your business or career to the next level, but also the tactics and measurable steps to implement change in real time. And we support our partners to effectively respond to digital disruption through future skill and talent building across all levels of business, not just within senior leadership.

Discover Our Process

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.”
