Kiikstart Programs

We have designed a range of programs to suit both businesses and individuals looking for measurable outcomes.

To determine which program is best, take a look at below to help shortlist which program is best for you.

Our Process

At Kiikstart, we are not a consultancy in the traditional sense. While we provide strategic and tactical expertise, this is only the first part of our proven and well trailed process.

Unlike other training providers, we work alongside businesses and individuals to achieve real, measurable outcomes and co- design the resources, processes and systems that have the highest, positive impact.

We provide practical benchmarks and milestones to keep us both accountable and focused throughout the partnership. If we cannot measure it, then we don’t do it.

A commitment to trial and experimentation of ideas is essential to success.

Kiikstart - Past Clients
  • 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.

    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.”

  • Regional Tourism Ambassador, Ali Uren, is a valued contributor to the Tourism Hub providing engaging and informative advice and information to industry.

    Ali provides mentorship to successful applicants of the Emerging Tourism Professional Program. Through Ali's guidance candidates have developed career activation plans and have been successful in progressing their career and securing new roles. With her enthusiasm for developing people, it is always a pleasure working with Ali.

  • 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.”
