Welcome sagacious thought leader|keynote speaker|ideapreneur|trailblazer|change maker|industry leader|visionaire|....and those who want to be

Hi, I'm Kathy Rhodes

Before I found my calling, working with thought leaders to improve the world one idea at a time, I held senior leadership positions at ANZ Wealth, ING and Zurich – businesses I still consult to today.

As the Strategy Director at Step Change – a strategic marketing agency – I helped clients like HP, Mad Mex, Church & Dwight, iCetana, Bowhill Engineering and LightFM to solve their trickiest business and marketing challenges.

I found the gold for the luxury goods, not-for-profit sectors both in Australia and overseas.

(Triple year) B&T Awards, regular keynote speaker and a mentor for the Women’s Business School. I’m also an Ambassador for The Cancer Council NSW.

I help thought leaders become world changers

I help thought leaders become world-changers

World-changers, like Dr Kristy Goodwin|Yemi Penn|Alicia Lykos|Peace Mitchell|Ingrid Bayer|Andrew Walker|Dr Catherin Ball|Adam Long

*World-changers means changing as many lives as possible. Helping people to become better parents, workforces to be more inclusive, women to be more confident – the possibilities are endless.
Knowing I can help make this possible does more than light me up.
It is my life’s work.

I'm truly blown away. You are incredible! Thanks for believing in me and supporting my business. I know I keep saying this, but it’s hands-down the BEST investment I’ve ever made.

Dr Kristy Goodwin

Her insightful, thoughtful, and highly-personalised process helped me unlock the true messages and goals for my brand. Kathy is brilliant at blending commercial strategy with the human condition, helping me create speaking and business propositions that are both meaningful and in-demand.

If you follow their advice, you will get results. They've been instrumental in redesigning our service offering and our pricing, which led to an immediate lift in our revenue by 80%.

Alicia Lykos

To say they ‘saw’ me is an understatement. I highly recommend Thought Alchemists for any thought leader looking for deeper clarity on their vision with a clear sight line on how to realise that vision.

Yemi Penn

A partnership with Thought Alchemists will take your work and your career to the next level. They took me on a journey of self-discovery and sense-making. They connected my passion with my professional expertise.

Kate Young


Without a doubt, choosing to work with Thought Alchemists has been one of the best decisions I have made as a business owner. They gave me an amazing strategy, equipped me with the tools I need to step into the next level of my own business, and supported me all the way. Recommend 100%.
