Career & Leadership
Hello There and thanks for visiting my website.
I help people from the Arts, Creative & Non-Profit sectors to maximise their career opportunities.
A career coach and marketer with over 20 years experience in the Arts, I have worked with small arts centres and major institutions, with local festivals and in the West End and on Broadway.
These include: Royal Court Theatre, Barbican, Battersea Arts Centre, Bristol Old Vic, Kneehigh, National Theatre, Old Vic, Rambert, Regents Park Open Air Theatre & Shakespeares' Globe.
Highly highly recommended.
Having worked with Kym during the last 6 months of 2020, we recommend you seize any opportunity you have to benefit from Kym's fantastic work on re-thinking your career and approach to securing a bigger, better role in the future.
The Career Catapult programme works brilliantly for Organisations and Individuals.
Andrew Lawson, Head of HR, Shakespeares' Globe
Now I can make confident decisions and identify when I am being my own worst enemy.
No more imposter syndrome!
Kerry Whelan, Executive Director, Frantic Assembly
My confidence and ability to develop new ideas at a more strategic level has increased with every session.
I wouldn’t be where I am today without Kym's help.
Caroline Ward, RADA
Kym is an exceptional coach.
Her background in working with some of the biggest names in UK film and theatre is key to her skills.
She’s utterly at ease with people who are creative, driven or ‘complex’ and great at spotting potential.
Harold Raitt, Theatre Educator and Filmmaker
Kym's coaching has been reaffirming, confidence-building and rigorous over the Career Catapult programme.
I feel reinvigorated and inspired by the course, as well as being equipped now with a vast array of CV tools, confidence in interviews and a digital footprint I can be proud of. Thank you Kym! You have my heartfelt recommendation.
Jennifer Smith, Shakespeares' Globe
Kym has coached me through a number of career and life decisions and has been invaluable. She is a warm and calm presence and allows you the thinking time needed to make your own choices whilst knowing exactly what to say to help, and when to say it.
Jenni Grainger, Chief Executive, Told by An Idiot
Kym is incredible at what she does.
I left feeling positive about my business and with great pointers and additional ideas to help with business growth during and after covid.
Kym is knowledgeable in all aspects of business and as a first session this was perfect. I will definitely look at having another session with Kym.
Hannah Robinson, High Voltage Events
Kym cleverly balances an exploratory style of working with a strategic overview.
I now have a coherent plan for my new career that is true to my vision, my values and professional style.
Anne Mosley, Coach and Facilitator
After only one session, Kym was an excellent career coach who has helped build my confidence, awareness and focus to define my next steps.
With a strong understanding of the arts and charity sectors, Kym offered unique expert and tailored insight alongside positive guidance navigating and networking during these times. Would highly recommend!
Like most things worth doing, changing your job or your career takes some legwork.
And I should know!
To date, I have been a Marketing Director, a freelance Marketing and Comms Consultant, a Reflexologist, a Genealogist (ask me later…), and a Career Coach.
Over my 20 years plus of working life I have had 43 different roles (racking up around 4 per freelance year) so I know a thing or two about changing both jobs and career.
As a self-confessed 'course-junkie', Career Coach and Marketing Expert, I have combined these skills to create a one-stop-shop to give you the confidence, mindset and meticulous preparation to change career.
