K Events has a very clear, heart-felt aim:
“To empower psychologists, counsellors, social workers with a vast range of tools, techniques and strategies which enable them to help their clients most effectively and simultaneously maintain (or re-ignite) their passion for the very valuable work they do."
Ten years ago, an opportunity too good to overlook presented itself to Kerri-Ann Sheppard and her sister, Sandra Lundbergs. After years of being dissatisfied, under-utilised and under-appreciated, Kerri-Ann wanted to step out on her own – be her own boss, make the decisions and choices in a way that reflected her more accurately. Kerri-Ann, affectionately known as the chief-organiser extraordinaire, had been organizing training events nationally and internationally for many years, whilst Sandra has been a psychologist in private practice. After many cups of tea, a clear path forward emerged – an events business that does provide innovative, exceptional quality training to helping professionals – K Events.
Kerri-Ann is the behind the scenes person, who organizes all the details – both big and small – for the workshops; whilst solo-juggling the demands of two young children. Organising workshops and events requires attention to detail, copious lists and schedules and above all passion. Kerri-Ann’s passion for helping others is reflected in the nurturing, calm, learning spaces and experiences created at workshops for the attendees.
Sandra, as a psychologist in private practice, with over 25 years experience, provides valuable consultancy and advice about relevant presenters, topics and trends to ensure that workshop topic and content reflects cutting edge psychology and the needs of practitioners. She also assists Kerri-Ann and the presenters in the practical smooth running of the workshops.
Since 2006 , K Events has worked with many presenters including Lyn Grodzki, Thom Rutledge, Bill O’Hanlon many times, Dr Daniel Siegel, Dr Michael Yapko, Drs John and Julie Gottman and most recently Linda Graham. Future presenters include both Dr Ronald Siegel and Dr Elisha Goldstein who will both be presenting for the first time in Australia and exclusively with K Events.
