Kim Woodey

Director & Principal Trainer

Kim is an IAMI GUEST Accredited Interior trainer with nine years’ experience working onboard large motor yachts, cruising both well-known and far-flung regions of the world.

Having worked predominantly as Chief Stewardess and Purser on both private and chartered yachts, she has been involved in all aspects of the daily running of the vessels, as well as refit and new build projects and, therefore she knows first-hand the challenges her students may face.

She has trained shoreside, onboard and online. Drawing on her previous experience as a qualified teacher, Kim is ideally suited to provide a relaxed yet focused environment helping her students gain an in-depth understanding of the highest levels expected in all aspects of the Interior and guest service. She is committed to giving flexible, tailored training to each student to help them develop and reach their potential.


There is something incredibly rewarding about helping my students grow and find their confidence. Creating the opportunity for them to fine-tune their skills and seeing them realise that they are able to do so much more than they thought they initially could. It’s these lightbulb moments that form part of the best reason for doing what I love on a daily basis.
