about me

I’m Kathy Chillistone and my home is the Isle of Wight.
After a long stint in the commercial world with long hours’ commuting, I made a healthy change to improve my work-life integration.
You might be familiar with my profession already – Personnel, HR, or perhaps as People and Culture.  I’m a Chartered, qualified and insured Independent Consultant, and I help people like you, to manage the people-aspects of small businesses and SMEs.
My passion is change, engagement, and driving social change in mental health. With experience across many sectors I’m able to adapt to a Client’s environment with ease, always considering commercial results alongside risk, and culture.
