Kate spoke well and shared all about her personal experience which was really helpful to learn from. I felt she shared a detailed insight into the modelling industry and how to make your own way. I enjoyed the sessions and now feel much more comfortable with my pathway as a model. I still have a lot to learn but hearing another model’s experience opened my eyes to the bigger picture and where my future could lead.

I found Kate's course extremely beneficial and I would consider it the most important course from my model training to date. I will use and remember everything Kate taught me and apply it to my modelling and personal life.

The way Kate delivered and explained the content, answered questions and also provided context with your own experiences, was extremely helpful. (P.S. Thanks heaps of the elixir recipe has been a straight up lifesaver). Both the Branding and Castings courses were very informative and exposed me to certain topics and areas that I had never thought of that will benefit my future modelling career. Would recommend it for any aspiring/up-and-coming model.

Honestly Kate was very inspiring and a very good teacher. Along with being very kind and patient, Kate is an amazing coach and a great mentor. I felt safe and happy to open myself up to her and learnt more than I expected, I will definitely be coming back.

A woman of power, persistence and poise - Kate taught me everything there is to know about working as a model. She was the perfect model in every sense of the word - a thriving success in the modelling industry, and a role model to young and ambitious women everywhere.  Kate was patient and passionate as a coach, and was always pushing me to grow. She tailored her training to my specific needs, and knew my personal strengths and weaknesses. Above all, Kate was always very supportive of me and showed genuine interest in my development and success.

Kate was extremely warm and accomodating and I honestly think that just made my learning experience that more interesting and captivating.

I now feel confident that I will be able attend castings/ audition and manage my brand and reputation. I found both talks very informative and the feedback sheets were equally helpful as I don’t feel stressed that I may have forgotten something.

Zoe Shackcloth, TAS


Kate has continued to play an influential and inspiring role-model in my modelling journey. Her ability to connect with others in both a professional and personal manner has allowed me to feel comfortable in approaching her expertise at any time, knowing quality insight and genuine interest in my career is given. I would recommend Kate to anyone wanting to understand the industry inside-out and in-between.

Nathan Hankin, WA


Training with Kate was fun, relaxed and easy! She is so knowledgeable about the industry; it is invaluable learning from her. You have a blast while gaining business tips and advice from an industry professional. I cannot recommend Kate enough!

Amanda Devlin, TAS



Kate is one of the most professional, hard working, intelligent and successful models I have had the pleasure of working with. Not only did she deliver great results for clients across a broad range of areas (from catwalk, to print, to TVCs) she also understood the importance of the business of modelling - from building networks, to commercialising her career. This is what sets Kate apart and makes her such an asset.

I worked closely with Kate during her reign as Mrs Australia for the International Pageant, based in the USA. It was a proud moment for our country; Kate placed in the top 5 at her world final in 2014, and has left a legacy as the most successful Australian in the pageant's history. As a successful commercial model with a comprehensive portfolio, I teamed up with Kate on coaching workshops for aspiring models and pageant candidates, and as a result we are often called upon as industry leaders to comment on industry affairs in the media. Kate is an inspiration and I am proud to have her as a colleague, a business partner and friend.

Kate Heussler has been a branding and reputation coach for my agency, Harvey James Management since 2015. She consistently delivers compelling, engaging sessions with a knack for coaching young people and encouraging enthusiasm. Kate continuously updates her material and approaches every session with zest and warmth. I will continue working with Kate well into the future, as she is an eloquent and inspiring mentor, who compliments my model development program wonderfully.

Selecting someone to assist in the mentorship of the women that go through the National Australian Miss Program was easy. My mind instantly went to Kate. Her passion and love for the work she does combined with her ability to engage with women of all ages made her the perfect choice and it's a decision I’ve never looked back on. She is always professional, reliable and an absolute asset to have on your side. Kate is a woman to both admire and respect across all fronts, and one that I can only recommend with the absolute and utmost reverence.
