"Absolutely transformed our charity"
“If you are on a journey to transform your charity or your business, then I would highly recommend Clear Thinking Consultancy. They have absolutely transformed our charity into a sustainable organisation.”
"A broad and detailed understanding of the community sector"
“I have commissioned a number of consultants over the years and Kita does stand out as someone who cares deeply about the work she does and who has a broad and detailed understanding of the community sector and working with children benefitting from those organisations.”
“Highly skilled in the field of organisational transformation projects and organisational behaviours.”
"Assured style, knowledge and critical view"
“Kita and colleagues came to work with us at St Michael’s Youth Project.

"She took the time to really understand our needs"
