About Kay

Hi, I'm Kay Marco, and I was just an ordinary woman until a freak radiation accident involving my microwave and a box of day-planners transformed me into Super-Helper – able to leap enormous to-do lists in a single bound, cut through complex logistical problems with laser-eyed focus, and ...

Actually, that's not true. I'm no super-hero.

I am just an ordinary woman with a husband, two lovely kids (Mr 4 and Miss 6), a cat, and my own lifestyle management business.

I also try to stay fit, catch up regularly with friends and family (even better if it's over a glass of wine and a great meal), and find time to lie in my hammock and read a good novel.

That all adds up to a pretty hectic schedule, and just like you, I have days when life gets messy, nothing goes as planned and I wish I could hit the 'reset' button.

But I do have a few superpowers...

Truthfully, I do have an uncanny knack for finding the systematic approach needed in any given situation (no matter how chaotic it seems), defining the most effective next steps, restoring clarity and order, and simply... Getting. Stuff. Done.

... and I love using my superpowers to help other busy Brisbane women.

After more than 20 years in event management, hospitality, and corporate executive support – in which time I've organised everything from million dollar exhibitions to house moves, from office clean-ups to weekly grocery shopping – I now work exclusively helping smart, energetic women manage their hectic professional and family life.

Why I do it

When I sit down with one of my clients (whom I also consider my friends), and see their face relax and their shoulders drop three inches as they offload all those niggling to-dos that are weighing them down... or when I call a client and hear the relief and gratitude in their voice because I've taken care of some gift shopping or other routine task without them needing to ask... well, that's the reason I do this work.

If you're ready to share the load, I hope you'll give me a call on 1300 HECTIC or email me at kay[at]hectichelpers.com.au

Kay has worked tirelessly to move our office in recent months, tackling a multitude of challenges and maintaining a great sense of calm. The one thing that stands out for me is just how easy she makes things. It is truly problem free, accessible and achievable. Get out your To Do list and hand it over. You won't regret it!
