About Kate

Kate RigbyI am:

  • A very experienced trainer and group facilitator in the area of culture and attitude change management, team building and people skills
  • A qualified business and life coach
  • A qualified counsellor
  • A Master Practitioner of NLP

I design, deliver and evaluate training using a wide variety of tools:

  • Multi-sensory, accelerated and brain friendly learning techniques,
  • NLP
  • Multiple Intelligences
  • Transactional Analysis in business
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • The Strength Deployment Inventory

My strength is my depth of experience as a result of working for more than thirty years in many sectors including a range of blue chip companies as well as smaller organisations. I find I’m frequently asked to support individuals as they work to grow themselves within their business or within their company role. In all of these situations, I’m regarded as a trusted resource.

I am well known as an inspirational person who has a passion for personal and corporate development shown by the mutual loyalty of the same companies working with me for several years.

I have spent over 30 years in education and training and started out as a French teacher. I moved into training and development by running two programmes for emotionally disadvantaged students followed by teacher training as a senior lecturer at Wolverhampton University.

I launched Kate Rigby Associates in 1990 and have never looked back, continually developing myself and my client programmes. I am a qualified counsellor and Master Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and work at a national level as a business and life coach.

About Kate


I loved to play hockey and now my passion is half marathons and fell running. I ran the Brighton Half Marathon recently to raise funds for Myeloma on behalf of a dear friend. We raised over £1,200.  Sadly he passed away earlier this month. A lovely, lovely man who I was so very proud to represent. Wonderfully, he wanted his ashes to be amongst the stars and sent up in a spectacular firework so he’ll be ‘with us everywhere’. He never did things by halves!



I thrive in the company of others and enjoy networking. There’s so much you can learn from listening and engaging with people. After all, it’s people who make businesses successful.
