Kim presented a “How to Run Your Club” workshop for Shire of Northam sporting clubs which was a perfect fit for our club’s needs. Kim possesses a great deal of knowledge and delivered it in a very clear, friendly and engaging manner that kept everyone focused throughout the session. The feedback from attending clubs has been fantastic. Some of the comments received about the workshop were;
All the attendees say they would attend a workshop held by Kim again. I would highly recommend Kim to any organisation.Rachel Gunn | Club Development Officer, Shire of Northam
'Thanks very much from myself and the Chapter 13 Committee for your help getting our new constitution up to scratch. I think we all felt we were in somewhat unfamiliar waters doing this so assistance from someone who knows the ropes was very much appreciated.
J. Rich (Secretary) SAAA - Chapter 13
Lower King Community Kindergarten engaged KBC to help us become an incorporated association. Kim was always accomodating and flexible to work with and around our other commitments to achieve our new constitution and association within a tight time frame. We would highly recommend KBC to any association. Thanks Kim!
Management Committee for Lower King Community Kindergarten
South Coast NRM engaged Kim to provide governance training and assist our partner NRM community groups with constitution updates. Kim was always accommodating, flexible and a pleasure to deal with. Her facilitation style is engaging and interactive with plenty of take home information and tips. Kim’s knowledge of governance for not-for-profit groups is exceptional and our community group partners really valued her wealth of expertise and experience. We would not hesitate to recommend or engage Kim again.
The City of Busselton has been fortunate to engage Kim (KBC) for two (2) workshops. The first workshop covered the changes to the Associations Incorporation Act 2015 and how it affects not for profit clubs as well as how to run successful meetings. The feedback from the participants was extremely positive. The second workshop was “Hunting and Gathering” focusing on where to access grants and how to write effective grant/sponsorship applications. Once again the feedback from the participants was extremely positive.
Kim is a very energetic and engaging facilitator whose knowledge of the not for profit and sport and recreation sector is exceptional.
I would not hesitate in engaging KBC for future workshops.
Pam Glossop | Club Development Officer
Kim's experience and general knowledge meant she had a clear understanding of our requirements and issues. She also provided us with more useful information through her extensive research. Her ability to structure the process and to keep the participates focused on what was required allowed us to develop a workable and very detailed facilities management plan. It was a great outcome for us.
Stephen Fink | Chairman
Kim was recommended to the Shire of Broomehill-Tambellup to assist in establishing a new community committee that would manage new sporting facilities being constructed in Tambellup. Whilst the scope of the task ahead was daunting to all of us setting out, Kim was able to break it down into bite sized chunks, that, with consultation back to our clubs, were able to be ticked off. The result is we have a functioning committee with a plan for their future and the skills to forge ahead as they assume management of the new facility. Kim’s professionalism and facilitation skills allowed the group to work effectively, and we would have no hesitation in seeking her assistance again in the future.
Pam Hull | Tambellup Facility Management Plan
Kim's facilitation of our workshop was pivotal in enabling managers and team leaders to develop a collaborative solution for communication and sustainability within the organisation. We would definitely use KBC again.
Christine Hunter | Aged Care Improvement Coordinator
I have engaged with KBC consulting for 3 years to deliver a vast number of workshops to the Sporting Clubs of Katanning.
Kim is a wonderful friendly facilitator has a very broad understanding of how sports clubs should be operating. Kim has always been available to speak to me over the phone if I have any questions and I will continue to engage with KBC consulting to deliver workshops to the Sporting Clubs in Katanning in the future. I would strongly recommend Kim to any organisation.
Tania Wolfe - Community Development Officer – Clubs
KBC helped the City of Albany develop and deliver a series of Smart Club Business Planning workshops over a period of six months. I have found Kim to be a professional and effective consultant who has a good understanding of the key issues facing the sport and recreation industry. She is an engaging and warm facilitator making her the ideal presenter for our community. The City now enjoys a strong relationship with our clubs. Our volunteers are skilled and club memberships are improving - on our way to a healthy and active community. KBC has been a major factor in our success. We would definitely hire Kim again.
Samantha Stevens | Manager Recreation Services
We engaged KBC to facilitate workshops for our team with the focus on aged care health and sector development. KBC’s understanding of aged care related issues were pivotal to the workshops success. Kim has an engaging and participative facilitation style that ensures successful outcomes. We would highly recommend KBC and will engage her again.
Kim has a broad background in sport participation and management which enabled us to develop a presentation outlining the current thinking and direction of successful clubs and focus the work shop on developing the ideas and enthusiasm from within the club membership and for them to take ownership.
This proved very successful in both generating member enthusiasm and some sound ideas to plan and develop the ongoing success of the Sailing Club, Kim's report on the workshop was detailed and delivered to the Board promptly following the workshop.
This has proved a very positive process for the Club and Kim's input and experience was the key driver as an independent facilitator in managing the information to and output from our members.
The professional service Kim Buttfield Consultancy provided was of the highest quality and efficiency. Our club had been endeavouring to have an amended Constitution and achieved our goal with exceptional results having Kim's assistance.
Kim was instrumental in assisting the Southern Districts Junior Football Inc. (SDJFA) with formatting and including the appropriate detail for our recent constitutional amendments.
The SDJFA also gained great insight into governance requirements and guidelines for our sporting club through Kim’s assistance. Kim’s wealth of knowledge, pleasant and encouraging nature enabled our club to commit to governance sooner than we had anticipated. We are very fortunate to have the quality of personnel like Kim not only assisting our club but others in the region.
