Introducing the Team that really cares

We believe in a world where people are fulfilled and performing at their best. A world where they have a healthy work-life balance, and as a result are an engaged, present contributor to the company they work for.

We’re on a mission to see more joyful employees being content in their work every single day.

As the modern day sees more technology emerge, a faster pace of business and the deepening of departmental silos, we strive to bring people back to the centre of a business. We aim to foster collaboration and ignite a heart-centred human approach that has both social and business benefit.

When a company reaches out to Kiki Kirby Consultancy, it’s not usually under great circumstances. There’s a problem that needs solving.

  • …maybe your people (your greatest asset) aren’t feeling valued

  • …maybe you’ve grown fast without the infrastructure to support that growth

  • …maybe your team isn’t getting along. 

 

Things feel uncertain. 

One thing is certain though, no matter the problem plaguing your company, it’s an opportunity to rise to the challenge and grow to meet a newer, higher standard. 

Change feels chaotic. But your evolution can be profitable, simple, and even…joyful.

Hello, I’m Kiki

Founder of Kiki Kirby Consultancy

With a successful corporate career in HR and recruitment, I have seen my fair share of people challenges. Having worked for over a decade in consultancy, coaching and recruitment, my whole career has been about people at various stages of their professional lives.

The challenges that leaders and managers face with talent really came into focus when I worked for a large recruiter in the UK. Being repeatedly the highest biller and a solid top performer, I was largely left to keep bringing the revenue in. All of a sudden I burnt out – a shock to both myself and those I worked for. I had to be signed off work for 6 months.

This lived experience taught me two things 1) That employee wellbeing and health must be a priority to maintain high performance over time and 2) Top talent is likely to be neglected and left until it’s just too late.

As I came back to work, I moved into coaching and consultancy. I’ve worked on some fantastically complex people issues – mergers, IT contractor changes, a lack of leadership capability. In all of these, I found I loved to bring clarity and transformation to a chaotic situation. 

With more clients, I’ve been able to build my own small team and pull together a brilliant network of associates. Now I can truly practice what I preach. I can be proactive with both my own and my team’s wellbeing. I can ensure they have career plans and are continually engaged. I can make work fun.

And this means we’re the best team to help others do the same.

Hello, I am Eleni Kirby the Business Operations Manager at Kiki Kirby Coaching & Consultancy.

I joined KKC in November 2016 after returning back from Maternity and having a Career Break and Change. My Career started as Hair Dresser through an apprenticeship route which took me travelling around the world on a Cruise Ship doing hair which led me then back to England working within HR for a Higher Education Establishment then into motherhood. After a set back and change in  circumstances beyond my control which returned me back to the working world to build my confidence and self-worth.

 

Family has and will always be at the heart of all I do, after losing our mum at very young ages me 8 years old and Kiki 13 years old. This is one of my values. From a young age both my sister Kiki who is the Creator of Kiki Kirby Coaching and Consultancy and I always had a passion to own our business and be entrepreneurs.

 

We both started with the passion of business selling our old clothes(keen fashionista) at the age of 13 and 8 years old which is led us now to running a successful and thriving Heart Centred Coaching & Consultancy  Business.

Honesty, respect, joy, timekeeping and trustworthy are the top values that drive me. I have impeccable attention to detail and have a huge job to keep Kiki on track (managing all her crazy and heartland vision, passion and ideas as well as being her Personal Assistant in the home (taking her dogs for walks, doing her shopping, and everything you can think of).  She keeps growing daily with plenty of responsibility ….. Our Clients and the way we do business is extremely important to myself personally and professionally.

 

In my free time, I love spending time with my daughter Sophie who is my pride and joy. Alongside working for KKC, I still do some hair and to keep my scissors polished and in November 2020 I set up a Parent and Lifestyle Blog https://www.meandmylittlelady.com/  and a book due to come out very soon.

My favourite quote is “Start each day with a grateful heart” and if I had to give a stranger one piece of advice, it would be “Joy comes in the morning” and it is so important to love yourself as this has been a journey I have struggled with over the years.

 

I look forward to connecting with you and allowing us to help you and be a part of your Journey.
