Neon has worked with clients across the private, public and voluntary sectors.

“We have worked with Kate over the last 18 months to develop a transformation programme aligned to Teal organisational concepts and principles. The programme involved delving deep into what makes an organisation work for its customers, people and the community at large. As a result the 20 strong team of senior managers committed themselves to making the transformation. We are now 18 months into the transformation and with Kate's continued involvement we are seeing significant results in cultural change, people fulfilment, and business success. In particular our customers both old and new are very complimentary about the way we deliver for them.
As part of this process, Kate has also provided one-to-one leadership coaching for a number of our senior leaders to help them develop as people in order to deliver more to the business. This has always been beneficial for the person and the business. In particular it has aided team working and strengthened the communications and support given and received by members of our leadership team."
Alice Poole, Technical Director, ICF
“NEON has been a great asset to our team over the past two years, as we’ve invested in more structured team development for a multi-cultural team working in different locations. With Kate’s support, we’ve introduced much better approaches to team work as well as personal resourcefulness tools, and have implemented effective and efficient light-touch 360-degree review systems. These have helped to improve both the dynamics of the team and individual enjoyment of the project.
We have really appreciated Kate’s commitment to support us achieve positive results by: facing problems clearly, in a tailored and constructive manner, and working through solutions to change how we operate individually and collectively."
Steve Timms, MD, BAE Systems
“Having been in industry for over thirty years, I have had the opportunity to work with a number of external organisations who offer help and support and suggest they can help deliver improvements. My experience working with Kate and Neon, has delivered that and more. Business is becoming increasingly complex, customers demanding more and competition increasing. Through Kate's leadership and support we have started to create an environment that has shifted our discussions from telling each other what our positions are to ensuring our energy is aligned and focussd on creating a long term sustainable business. Kate has the ability to listen, simplify, understand the issues quickly and help provide the clarity of thought to make progress. A rare talent and of great value given the business challenges we all face."
Sophie Ireland, MD, Europe, Bridge Partnership
“As a facilitator, Kate embodies a wonderful blend of fun, light and creative characteristics, together with the courage to confront, challenge and take risks. In her work Kate has a hugely helpful impact on the group dynamic, enabling them to achieve more than they imagined."
Vinita C, Top 3 UK Health Insurance
“As a coach, Kate has a very approachable style and a subtle way of pushing the boundaries without causing resistance or distress. The biggest impact of my coaching was around self-confidence. I had the tendency to over-criticize myself and to try to fit in. I am now conscious of the wealth of opportunities available to me and that I need to create the change."
Jo H, Women’s Leadership Consultant
“The word I would use to describe the coaching I did with Kate is transformative. During the months we worked together we covered so much ground and touched areas that I have steadfastly avoided in other coaching or didn't know were holding me back. Kate is positive, enlightening and challenging, super funny and very, very intuitive. We did our sessions via Skype and the physical signals that Kate picked up on were spookily impressive. The aims of the coaching were over-achieved and I feel that she has given me a way of naming things and recognising my own behaviour that will stay with me for as long as my brain is functioning."
Patricia S, Consultant Anaesthetist
“I had the enormous privilege of having Kate as a coach this year after going through a very difficult time in my life. I was amazed at how insightful she was. She has a very warm but not intrusive style, and an unbelievable ability to pick through layers and delve deep down into the heart of the matter. She devised a creative and fun programme for me, aspects of which I still use today. I have no words to express how grateful I am to her for opening my eyes and helping me to live my best life, both personally and professionally. I can highly recommend her services to anybody."
Matt Mower, Director, The Art of Navigation
“'Serious fun' is the best way I can describe working with Kate.
I was particularly impressed by Kate's ability to balance humour and seriousness while never letting me lose sight of my underlying humanity. She was able to be flexible and adapt to my changing needs while maintaining a programme relevant to what I wanted to achieve.
If you are looking for a coach, who will walk with you into challenging territory, I recommend speaking to Kate."
Rose J, Social Entrepreneur
“I worked with Kate in order to help me formulate how to move from a place in my career which was unfulfilling and diminishing me. She skilfully showed me how to take “the dust sheets off” my values and gifts. To say that was revelatory is an understatement. At the end of my time with Kate I had figured out what I really, really wanted to do and had a plan for a secure base to develop it from. I was also looking after myself better and taking my first steps towards realising my dream. I recommend her skills and humanity without reserve."
