Kat and I have facilitated training events together, and her material is so useful and presented in a super-clear way. Participants really like her workbooks for their depth and precision. As her colleague, I have had lots of insights myself from her work, as she absolutely nails the small things and the big things we can do to run our businesses more effectively.

Working from home, and more specifically finding a role that worked around my family and 23-month old daughter seemed like a far-fetched dream... However, Kat at The Helpful Academy has made this a reality for me. I am now successfully managing to virtually assist my clients both from my own home and while out and about, providing me with much-needed income, whilst my daughter continues to enjoy her regular activities such as Playcentre.

Kat trained me in the setup of my website and I found her to be very knowledgeable, helpful and efficient with her time and energy. She really helped me work through the tricky back end set up but also with her keen eye for design detail gave me some really good feedback and tips on how to get my web page looking slick. I really appreciated her expert help as design OR web set up is not my areas of expertise. I am now working alongside Kat in another capacity and feel fortunate to do so.

Kat quickly understands the client's needs, applying the latest tools, apps and techniques to ensure the business owner can stay in their genius and let go of all the support tasks that are a necessary to keep the business running. Kat is professional, skilled and fun. 'Helpful' doesn't even begin to describe what Kat offers her clients like me. She's a right hand - and a whole brain and a great gal to boot!

Since starting my family, I decided that I didn’t want to go back to a corporate administration job, and decided to set up a Virtual Administration business. Working virtually was new to me. Kat has shown me valuable apps and tricks that have helped streamline working virtually so that I can now enjoy being able to work from home around my family.

Kat has far exceeded any expectations I had. Kat's recommendations have literally transformed the support arm of our business. She is a multi-talented in writing, marketing, design, IT, admin support and so so much more. She has removed the stress from my day to day life and for that, I am truly grateful. I cannot recommend Kat highly enough.

Kat is a very down-to-earth and personable presenter/facilitator; she can explain sometimes difficult concepts in a way that makes it easy to understand. She’s very tech-savvy, and knowledgeable when it comes to business management and what it takes to run a successful business. I have seen first-hand the huge impact Kat has had in helping clients turn their business around.
