Catherine Adamson’s company Kaleidoscope has made it possible for me to have a busy professional life as a non executive director, mentor and coach. The skilful, thoughtful and always engaged support provided by Kaleidoscope has been both transformative and highly supportive. I cannot recommend Catherine and her team of VAs highly enough.

Catherine and her fabulous Team at Kaleidoscope have provided excellent support to me and my business Coaching Works! over a number of years. Catherine matched me to a dedicated and skilled EA, Louise Denby, who has enabled me to concentrate on delivering leadership coaching by proactively and super-efficiently dealing with the attendant administration and client liaison in a highly professional, meticulous and personalised way.

We work with cities all over the world. It’s a dynamic, fast changing environment with a demanding travel schedule. The support we get from Kaleidoscope has made an enormous difference to our business. It’s great to know that the planning of all of our travel, accommodation and scheduling is in their capable hands. It’s made us more efficient, better organised and able to focus 100% on our client’s needs. Why didn’t we do this years ago?

Principal, Knox Mcconnell Architects

Kaleidoscope is a fantastic resource! Their professional and common sense approach to their work allows me to confidently delegate a whole range of tasks to them. It is paramount that the work I present to my clients is of the highest professional standard and Kaleidoscope have unfailingly supported me in achieving this. I would not hesitate to recommend Kaleidoscope to anyone. The team have been an essential element in the success of my company. They have enabled me to focus on my core business by unburdening me of the time consuming paperwork which can so easily gobble up profits.  They are a hugely cost effective resource, provides top quality results and great fun to work with. Frankly, I couldn’t live without them!

Jules Wyman

Confidence Coach, Speaker & Author

As a business of one, things can drop off the radar that you want to get done. Having someone work with you to make sure that schedule is maintained is exactly what I needed and what Alex from Kaleidoscope does. Catherine knew the kind of person I was looking to work with and matched us perfectly. Alex ‘gets’ the work that I do and has stretched herself with learning new skills in order to support me and the business. I highly recommend working with Catherine to find your perfect VA too!

Nikki and Catherine are fabulous! They are a key part of my business success and have enabled me to focus on what I do best, taking away all the annoying administrative tasks that take up so much time and energy.

Director, Shine Coaching And Consultancy Ltd

I’ve been working with Kaleidoscope since February 2014 and they have provided the highest quality support to my business. Catherine and her team are professional, reliable, responsive, and flexible and always have a can do attitude. It has helped me free up time to focus on important and fee paying work and has released me from a range of responsibilities and tasks that don’t play to my strengths. It’s also great to have my lovely PA as part of the Shine team. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Kaleidoscope’s services to busy people.

Annie Medcalfe

Managing Director, The Fusion Firm

Catherine has become an integral part of our organisation – albeit a virtual one! She takes on routine tasks such as sending invoices and doing all our monthly financial returns and records; and one off projects such as transcribing training data from CD to paper or PowerPoint. The benefits? As well as saving our time, what Catherine produces is of such high quality, often innovative and always astonishingly prompt. We have recommended her to a number of clients and partners.

Danny Dougramachi

Managing Director Federal Petroleum Services Co

As an international businessman, it’s vital that I receive a first class service when booking my travel and accommodation. Nikki and the team at Kaleidoscope are dedicated to ensuring that all parts of my itinerary are thoroughly thought through and that every detail is considered.  This has made a real difference to my life as I can now travel in the knowledge that everything will run smoothly and that I no longer need to spend hours of time researching and booking flights because Kaleidoscope provide me with a cost effective, trustworthy solution and they work extremely well with my staff in Dubai and Erbil to ensure that arrangements are made in each country for my trips.  In addition to this, the team assist with organising my home life i.e. booking restaurants, theatre tickets, researching and booking family holidays and activities for my children, as well as arranging family parties and sending out Xmas cards to name but a few things.  The Kaleidoscope team do what they say they are going to do, when they say they are going to do it, and this gives me the confidence to get on with the work that only I can do.  It is a pleasure working with Nikki and the rest of the team, and I would highly recommend their services.

Managing Director, Jorvik Associates Ltd

Kaleidoscope have helped my business to concentrate on what we do well, what we enjoy and what makes us money by working closely with me to see where their services could best make a positive impact on our business performance. They have developed plenty of ideas for saving me time, money and effort and a recent calculation showed that paying for their time actually helped to generate nearly 4 x the income in the hours I would have spent doing work that they are now contracted to handle and manage. A no-brainer of a business relationship with the added bonus of the team being great to deal with and very, very efficient. I can wholeheartedly recommend them to any business seeking to focus on core business whilst ensuring that the day to day does not get missed or overlooked. Kaleidoscope has been one of my best ever business investments.

Nik Morris

Motion Picture and Stage Director, Creative Director, Writer

Kaleidoscope services have freed me from distraction, permitting me to concentrate on my work and develop my business.  As a filmmaker and copywriter I’m often out of the office on shoots, or meeting with clients. When I’m in the office I’m concentrating on animation and post-production work or writing. Having to also respond to an email inbox full of scheduling questions, often disrupting the next day’s well laid plans, was immensely distracting, meaning I’d often be at my desk long into the night (the only time I wouldn’t be interrupted).  This was unsustainable. Delegating my inbox and diary to Kaleidoscope meant I could finally spend office hours concentrating on work and business development. My specialised PA is far more effective than I would be with similar tasks. I receive a very friendly and efficient service. Would highly recommend.

CEO @ 4D Human Being

Just a quick note to say how delighted we are with having Lisa as our p.a. She will undoubtedly wonder, given how busy we are, how we ever coped without her (as do we!). She is incredibly professional, quick, smart, friendly and we love her! She fits so well within our business and her client liaison style is second to none. We have been able to place our full trust in her very quickly and quite frankly Lisa you have changed our lives! Thank you to Catherine for such a smooth and professional service and an enormous thank you to Lisa – for being Lisa.
