Kit McQueen - The Career Energiser
As The Career Energiser™ my overarching, energising mission is simple: to equip you to live your one, unique existence purposefully, healthily, confidently & joyfully; realising your fullest possible potential, in every way, every day.
Kitting Up with me is a 360 process designed to harness & hone who you really are; to fast track your leading, learning, achieving & communicating and to put a smile on your face more often than you'd imagine because:
1) You begin to truly understand & accept the wonderfully unique individual you are.
2) You believe in & commit 100% to any goal you set.
3) You start seeing progress, fast.
Unlock your Extraordinary™ is at the heart of everything I do, whether working with junior students or senior managers. We all have the opportunity to seek, learn, develop and persist – to become something and someone extraordinary.
Living a fulfilling, energising life with a pep in your step comes from knowing you are on the right track (aligned with your unique strengths, experience and goals) and have the right support in place to help you get there, whatever transpires along the way.
You have to take the first step but when you commit to yourself and the future you want to shape, I’ll be running alongside to keep you on track and upbeat.

"I can assure anyone considering working with Kit that there is no reason to be hesitant. I feel lucky to have encountered her. She helped me overcome my fears of speaking. She is capable of not just helping you achieve your goals but even pushing you further." Adam, Radboud
"I have found the coaching from Kit to be wonderful. It has given me an appreciation of who I am and the gifts & talents I possess (and) turned back the clock (to) the person of ambition I was thirty years ago." IC, Edinburgh
"I quickly realised nothing and nobody is trivial in your eyes. Not only were you the first person to understand and acknowledge the way I work but since then you have supported and inspired me to constantly move forward and fulfill my potential. Your motivation, determination, and commitment is contagious."
"I had 1:1 career coaching with Kit for over 6 weeks to aid in my pursuit of a career in the oil and gas industry and thanks to her I am now doing just that. She helped me with the creation of my CV, what to include in my application for the role and with in-depth interview practice. Her coaching allowed me to feel confident and prepared during the real interview as she helped me cover such a wide variety of question possibilities. I would wholeheartedly recommend Kit’s coaching to anyone looking for support with their career." Ross, Aberdeen
"I met with Kit for an ‘emergency’ strategy session before interview and this time I got the job." Susie, Glasgow
"I’ve had 2 coaches in the past and I couldn’t seem to learn much from them or see ways that I could better myself. Not until I started being coached by Kit. She actually understands. She never sugarcoats things and she always challenges me when she thinks I need it!" Yves, London
"I LOVE my new job. I couldn’t have done it without Kit. The process was fun and eye-opening, but also hard work! She clearly saw the missing parts I had missed and would have kept missing. From feeling totally demoralised and stuck I am so much more confident and so much else in my life has already changed for the better." Jillian, Edinburgh
"You have helped me massively with my confidence and helped me achieve so much more than I thought possible." Megane, Glasgow
