Hi There. I’m Kate McCready.

 

Thank you for joining me in my online home.

Why I do what I do

 

I believe out work matters. Your work matters. Your organisation's work matter.

 

Every day we are faced with choices about how we show up in our careers, in the businesses we build and the products, services and experiences we create. Every one of us has the opportunity to make a difference through this work – whether it be simply in our own life or to the the lives of thousands.

My purpose and passion is helping you or your organisation make that difference. From one-on-one coaching, right through to leading large scale organisational consulting projects.

 

What I do

 

So what exactly do I do? Well I am and do many things:

  • Holistic business and career coach
  • Service and experience designer
  • Strategist
  • Innovator
  • Speaker and facilitator
  • All round ideas woman (my friends gave me this one).

I love nothing more than to help you create something out of nothing and meaning out of mess.

 

Over my career spanning government, corporate, small business, freelancing and my own business, I have helped organisations and people:

  • Generate, test and prototype ideas
  • Build things from the ground up
  • Create insight from places of uncertainty
  • Bring multiple passions or ideas together
  • Understand , engage and design for people
  • Understand themselves
  • Create new ways of working
  • Change, create, enable and transform.

 

My special sauce is a unique blend of creative, analytical, practical, emotional and strategic to help you or your organisation on you journey.

 

I have gathered the ingredients for and honed this recipe working in everything from community theatre to large scale service design, customer experience and innovation projects for some of Australia’s largest companies.

I have worked on projects for: City of Melbourne, Engineers Without Borders, EPA Victoria, Deloitte Australia, Realestate.com.au, Australia Post, ANZ, NAB, Suncorp, Medibank and World Vision. 

My purpose now is to use all that I’ve learned for good by empowering people and organisations to create work that fulfils, inspires and has a positive impact on people and planet. I am championing the Good Work Revolution.

Training & Qualifications

 

I have a pretty diverse background. Like many people, I’ve changed my mind and pivoted my career multiple times. Each time I have stepped closer to my purpose and learned  more about combining my strengths and passions to create my ideal work life and bring value to my clients. Everything I have done has made me who I am and brought something new to my professional table.  Some of my more official training and qualification has included:

  • Bachelor of Business Entrepreneurship
  • Certified Beautiful You Life Coaching Academy
  • Diploma of Arts: Small Companies and Community Theatre
  • Trained in facilitation
  • Trained in design thinking

On a personal note

 

I live in Melbourne with my husband and fur baby Jaxx the Cavoodle (he’s also my Chief Wellbeing Officer). I love art, music, design and food of pretty much all kinds. I love nothing more than heading away to a music festival, traveling the world, having dinner and playing boardgames with friends or visiting my family beach house and chilling out: Reading, walking on the beach and settling down with a nice glass of Aussie Shiraz.

I am creating a life for myself where I can work my way, live my way, have freedom to travel, surround myself with people that light me up, have amazing experiences and just be me - all while making a positive difference in the world. Sounds pretty great, huh?

 

I would love to work with you.
