Kathryn has been an integral member of Women in Finance for 3 years as our Secretariat and Public Officer, providing enthusiastic support from organizing speakers at all our events, to organizing the events themselves and dealing with financial, compliance and administrative issues, all with unlimited patience and the utmost level of professionalism. The operations of the association have greatly benefited from Kathryn’s expertise and experience resulting in events which ran seamlessly from start to finish. Kathryn’s proactiveness in suggesting and finding engaging speakers for our events boosted attendance at all our events during 2005 and 2006. The association has come to depend upon Kathryn and Business Angel Services to organise all our events and operational logistics, knowing that they will be planned and implemented with every attention to detail being taken care of.
President of Women In Finance (NSW) 2006
Kathryn McKenzie has been the Executive Officer of the Women Lawyers’ Association of NSW (WLA NSW) since I joined the WLA NSW committee in 2003. Since this time, her energy, efficiency, professionalism and commitment to detail when it comes to public relations, sponsorship negotiation, event organisation, and administration, has been an invaluable asset and real boost to WLA NSW. Kathryn’s extensive experience in networking and liaison with people and organisations of all walks of life has illustrated itself repeatedly in her management of our organisation.
I do not hesitate in recommending Kathryn and Business Angel Services to any potential clients. They will truly make the difference in the impression that you make.
Lee-May Saw, President
Women Lawyers’ Association of NSW,
I have worked with Kathryn McKenzie in her role as Secretariat and Event Manager for both Women in Finance and Women Lawyers. I worked with her from 2004 to 2007, and during this time extensively when I was Vice President of Women In Finance from 2004 to 2005.
During this time one of Kathryn’s many roles, was to co-ordinate seminars. She was responsible for the whole process of event management i.e preparing the invitation, sending this to the appropriate database, coordinating the venue and ensuring that it was a successful event. Kathryn was completely focused on achieving a quality and successful result in whatever task she was responsible for undertaking. The seminars that she organised were always of high quality with prominent speakers and a high number of participants attending.
Kathryn is an extraordinary asset – she is resourceful, committed and gets things done. She is proactive, disciplined has a high attention to detail and is a valuable member of both Women in Finance and Women Lawyers associations.
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this lady for any role.

Past Vice President Women in Finance
As Vice President & Education Officer of the Franchise Council of Australia NSW/ACT Chapter, I had the pleasure of working with Kathryn McKenzie during her five year tenure as Secretariat Manager from 1997 to 2002, and as PCO for their 2002 National Conference hosted in Sydney. Kathryn’s approach was proactive, personable and professional with attention to detail. Responsible for all operational aspects of the Association, Kathryn was instrumental in the development of industry training, sponsorship support, membership growth and financial stability. The success of the 2002 Conference and Kathryn’s contribution to the Association was outstanding, and I would recommend Kathryn and Business Angel Services for their exceptional services in association and event management.
