About this event


Kai joined Shirlaws in 2010 after spending 2 years developing a management consulting and mentoring practice. Kai specialises in guiding business leaders and their teams to play a bigger game effectively and sustainably.

She has a real passion for coaching people who are serious about change, and is familiar with the often lonely challenges facing the entrepreneur. She brings to Shirlaws a wealth of experience and a strong track record of building highly successful teams and implementing structures and systems to improve long term performance.

Kai spent over 10 years as Managing Director of Search Consultancy, becoming part of the management buy-in/buy-out team in February 2000. Whilst firmly establishing Search as the leading independent player in Scotland, the successful foot print was rolled out south of the border, opening locations in Manchester, Crawley, Leicester, Liverpool, Leeds, Birmingham and London, and increasing staff numbers from 170 to over 600. As a result, Search was recognised as one of the UK’s 100 fastest growing private companies in PricewaterhouseCoopers’ ‘Profit Track 100’.

The company turnover on exit (end 2007) was over £120m and NFI had grown at 20% year on year for the previous 5 years.

Kai has an MBA from Edinburgh University Management School and is on the Campaign Board for Maggie’s – cancer care centres.

ILM accredited coaching and mentoring qualifications improve management performance, conflict resolution and communication and interpersonal skills. Registered Corporate Coach and Member of the World Association of Business Coaches.
