Extra Value & Attention
Working with Kiikstart is a two-way process that is personal and personalised.
From personal introductions to our networks, to a recommendation that will open up new opportunities, we’re committed to putting in work between sessions to deliver specific outcomes.
This also includes acting as a creative and robust strategic sounding board as new ideas are designed, scoped and executed into the real world as a result of our learning and development.
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."
I have had the opportunity to work with Ali, while looking at career opportunities for myself.
Ali’s talent to think creatively, challenge and coach is inspirational and has achieved an outcome where I absolutely back myself to achieve that next role. I can’t thank Ali enough for making sense through the maze and by ‘being there’ in person or at the end of the phone coaching me in the moment. I’m grateful to have been introduced to Ali and have no hesitation in recommending Ali and her methodology to future clients."
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.”
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.”
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.”
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.”
Ali is a tenacious, tireless facilitator who works from her heart. She is 100% authentic and what you see is what you get. Ali has the experience and background to back up her teaching.”
