"Adventure isn't hanging on a rope off the side of a mountain. Adventure is an attitude that we must apply to the day to day obstacles of life - facing new challenges, seizing new opportunities, testing our resources against the unknown and in the process, discovering our own unique potential."

Kay Hewitt BBS, DiM
Kay completes this with her specialist area of strategy, rounding out the total package with being a strategic coach and facilitator.

She is skilled at analysing external and internal environments and at working with any team to come up with realistic goals that will, nonetheless, stretch and challenge the organisation. Beyond that, however, she understands how to create step-by-step processes and build capability to such goals are achieved.
