For anyone who wants to build an authentic professional brand that has a positive impact in a competitive environment.

This Program provides an opportunity for you to reset and gain clarity and insight to make smarter, better-informed decisions about your career.

You may have ended up in the "wrong role" in the past and lost trust and confidence in yourself to make the right decisions. Whatever your position, this course will give you the insights and knowledge you need to take the next steps in your career.

Together we will identify the types of environments, brands and roles that will provide the best opportunities for you. Through personal reflection and exploration, coupled with our market knowledge, you will develop a targeted plan to help you realise your goals.

We will develop a Personalised Innovation Capability Review that identifies skills gaps and risks to your future success with practical actions to execute. Armed with this plan, you can confidently step forwards into shaping your new career.

Identifying the skill and capability needed within people/businesses to successfully execute the strategy. And facilitating the learning and development with clients to respond to the skill gaps.

Co-designing the processes, systems and internal resources need to successfully execute the strategy.

Success Story: Ash Brown, Coca Cola Amatil

Ash Brown initially discovered Kiikstart when Ali Uren was facilitating the transitional project for the leadership team as part of closing Coca Cola Amatil manufacturing in Adelaide, South Australia.

Having been in a senior role with CCA for over 22 years, Ash was made redundant late 2019. As a result, Ash needed to create a personalised plan for her future that would be successful in a changing and competitive market place.

Ash needed a strategic plan that could open up new networks and provide access to a variety of career opportunities. No mean feat in a small market and in the middle of a global pandemic.

Together we designed a personalised career plan including:

A new, contemporary career brand that had impact across all communication platforms, including social media.

A detailed strategic plan for maximising presence and building quality connections through LinkedIn by adopting an entrepreneurial mindset.

A career innovation capability review that identified the key skill gaps and risks to Ash successfully transitioning to new career opportunities as well as and the actions and solutions to execute throughout the project.

This co-designed plan was prioritised against Ash’s career objectives and the values of what high-value work looked like in future roles.

During the COVID pandemic, Ash was able to secure a steady supply of interviews and secured a senior health and safety role with a highly regarded and respected organisation in the health industry.

What they said...

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."
