This is us

OUR TEAM

I set up HKW Risk Management in 2016 and initially completed all projects on my own but as the business has grown I have gathered a team of likeminded people to work with - we have a range of skills and specialisms but we are all curious people who ask lots of questions and are interested in the answers. We also have a similar straightforward approach to identifying risks and implementing management systems. And importantly, most of us enjoy eating cake…

Kirsty at Kirsty Northover Photography

Photography & Web Design
I'm the photographer and website designer for those who hate being photographed and for the business owners who need more of the clients they love working with but don't like selling.My "thing" is turning a marketing plan into a set of visuals that speak to your target clients, showing them why you're the right person for them. These images resonate, connect and inspire trust. Your website reassures and converts them into committed enquiries, selling you, when you can't - before you even know the enquiry exists. The imagery and website work together like magnets and a funnel, ensuring the clients you're perfect for understand that it's YOU they need, believing that anyone else is a compromise they can't afford to make.
