Kylie has been my mentor and coach during my transition from Executive Management to Board Member. Kylie’s experience and commitment to first-class coaching has provided inspiration and credibility to her clients and her company Director Institute provides exclusive board and talent management programs and board search opportunities that are confidential and available only to members. Kylie through Director Institute provides a unique opportunity to expand one’s career into the Board Room. I am very proud to be a member of Director Institute and have Kylie Hammond as my coach and mentor.
Last week I undertook to The Director Institute Masterclass – How to Fast-Track Your Career presented by Kylie Hammond CEO and Founder of Director Institute, and Sonia McDonald CEO from Leadership HQ – a one-day intensive program taking you from the Executive to the Boardroom. What a great event, lots of learning, focus on individual brand and leadership. And lots of great stories from participants of their journey. A must
Kylie is an exceptionally knowledgeable and empowering executive coach who constantly challenges and encourages me to reach my goals. She is an inspiring individual who generously shares her practical insight, experience and resources. I highly recommend Kylie to anyone wanting to achieve greater success in all areas of their life.
If you ever have opportunity to work with or engage Kylie Hammond, don’t think twice! Engaging Kylie as a career coach is one of the best decisions I have ever made. Kylie is outstanding in her field and is an impressive entrepreneur. But it is her generosity and desire help others succeed that make her a truly inspirational career coach and leader.
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.
I have enjoyed working with Kylie as she has given me the knowledge and skills I will need to continue to grow my career and grow my board portfolio. Kylie has a common sense approach and makes the journey in to this new territory very easy to navigate. She is an excellent communicator and has a broad range of professional people in her extensive network that bring skills, support and opportunity. I would recommend working with Kylie to anyone.
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.
