Testimonial June 2017

“I was introduced to Kate early on in my journey when I attended an RICS Seminar that she was hosting about the APC process. Kate was clearly very passionate about what she does and this made a strong impression on me, giving me the focus I needed to start working and be proactive from the outset of my APC.


Kate’s background in practice means that as well as being able to educate about the generic APC procedure she also provides detailed essential knowledge on each of the required competencies that you need to declare. Kate is very professional in the way she operates and has an effective way of teaching and mentoring that provided invaluable to me throughout!


Kate’s coaching services include; web classes, final submission documentation review and mind maps, the APC Quick Start Revision Guide, an insightful and regularly updated Twitter feed, a useful APC column in the Estates Gazette and a final revision workshop (in conjunction with Delever). I personally don’t think I would’ve passed first time and achieved Chartered status without Kate’s help and would highly recommend her to anyone working towards their APC.”
