The Director Institute’s Master Class is not just a unique learning experience. It is also a fantastic opportunity to network and form meaningful relationships with others that are also looking to broaden their career portfolio. The day went goes very quickly because it is both interactive and energetic and it also gives you the space to reflect on where you want to go from here and how to get there. I recommend this Masterclass for anyone seeking insights into leadership, how to be an effective board director and how to widen the scope of their professional goals.

As I now embark on seeking Advisory Board roles complimentary to my existing role as CRO, I have found Kylie’s counsel invaluable. Her contact base and intricate knowledge of the relevant market segments is second to none. She is highly focused and genuinely committed to generating the best possible outcomes for her clients.

I engaged Kylie at a critical point in my personal and professional career. Kylie’s guidance, advice and intuition from the moment we first met, through determining preferred employers and preparation of my profile has proved invaluable. Specific measurable outcomes – such as gaining employment with an organisation of choice, and ongoing referrals clearly highlights the value Kylie has added. Kylie is more than a mentor for a new job, Kylie provides the mentor for life that every C-level person requires.

She is the very best in her field when it comes to helping people like me transitioning from a high profile Corporate career to becoming an investor and positioning myself onto a Board. Very diligent in her follow through and also very supportive in ensuring that I followed through all the appropriate steps to secure the right placement for my new venture. Kylie is very influential and well connected/respected in the Industry, which is a great attribute to have in her role. I feel very privileged and proud to be associated with Kylie now as a good friend, mentor and guide in my journey towards my new ventures.
