Kate Kidd People Consulting

Enabling Your Success

People consulting,
executive coaching and
fractional HR leadership for
growing and changing businesses.


I’m Kate, a People Consultant, Executive Coach and Fractional People Leader.

I partner with my clients to achieve their goals by solving complex challenges, building high performing organisations, and developing leadership and talent.

Prior to consulting, I spent 17 years leading all areas in International People functions at high growth organisations, most recently as Vice President of Organisational Performance at an Irish tech unicorn. 

I have significant experience scaling organisations to billion dollar valuations, IPO and beyond. High-trust cultures and leadership excellence have been foundational to these successful scaling journeys and two of those organisations earned the #1 spot on the Great Place to Work Lists during my tenure.

I am a Chartered Fellow of the CIPD and an EMCC accredited Leadership and Executive Coach. I hold an Honours degree in Psychology and Human Resources, a Postgraduate Diploma in HRM and an Advanced Diploma in Executive and Leadership Coaching along with certificates in Dutch, German, French and Nordic employment law. 

Based near Dublin, Ireland, I continue to partner with clients internationally across Europe and North America. I am passionate about my clients’ success and unlocking the potential of individuals and organisations.

If you are looking for a positive, strategic partner who will provide hands on support and enable your journey, let’s connect.


Fractional HR Leadership

When you need an experienced People Executive who has been there and done it before across every area of HR, but you’re not quite ready to hire a full time Chief People Officer.

As a fractional leader, I get to know your business and work as an extension of your leadership team on a flexible basis, providing strategic leadership and building solutions to ensure your organisation’s People needs are met now and at scale. 

Fractional HR Leadership can be interim or part time with a flat monthly fee at a fraction of the cost to hire a full-time leader.

People & Change Consulting

Consulting services focus on elevated Organisational Performance, Leadership, Talent Management and Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Specific project examples include:


Coaching is one of the most transformational learning interventions available as it truly meets each client where they are and enables their progress towards specific goals.

As an EMCC accredited coach with extensive coaching experience, I work with Founders, C-Suite, Leaders and clients navigating career transitions to unlock potential, enabling elevated performance and leadership excellence.

In addition to coaching, I also work with HR Professionals offering a blend of coaching and mentoring to enable their career growth towards senior and Executive HR roles.

"As the leader of the People function Kate possesses the key combination of strategic insight and ability to deliver. She develops a deep understanding of organisational context and brings unwavering dedication to her clients and an innate ability to inspire positive change.

She is the person you want beside you to steer through issues, growth and change to position the organisation for success.

Her leadership style is inclusive, collaborative and purpose led, anchored in the success of the business. And her depth of knowledge in HR is matched only by her commitment to excellence, making her an invaluable resource in my opinion for any individual or organization.
