Who We Are
We Help You Do More of What You Love!

Kick Consulting was created to help successful entrepreneurs focus on growing their business instead of getting stuck managing it. 

We understand there is a transitional stage, where the business gets big enough to need a manager, but not big enough to need one full time!


We are here to optimise your business for you!

We know, as the business owner you don’t have time to implement the strategies and all the brilliant ideas you have because you are trying to juggle too much already. This is where we come in and take some of those duties away and help you implement the vision and strategy you have for the business.


We believe technology is the answer.


With over 15 years of experience in business management and optimisation, we've seen enough proof of that.

Nicola joined the incredible Kick team in October 2021.

While painting and renovating her country home on the Far South Coast of NSW with her husband, Nicola realised she needed to alter her work outcomes. She wanted to work for a fully remote and distributed company that encourages flexible working hours with supportive leadership and team. The company needed to provide leading business experience and advice while implementing software that removes or streamlines the day-to-day tasks. Big ask, but it was here that Kick and Nic came together!

Nicola brings over 20 years of IT project management experience coupled with an incredible range of understanding of industry best practices businesses. Nic is a natural-born organiser with high attention to detail and problem-solving ability. She can see the big picture and many sides of a situation, and she is skillful in overcoming obstacles by finding innovative solutions. You won't get IT jargon out of Nic as it's understanding and talking your business talk where it all starts.

In her spare time, Nic continues to renovate her home and property with her husband (does it ever end?) and is also looking at investing in a bus to renovate into a tiny house!
