Spotlight Interview –  Kiran Kachela | Continuous Improvement Projects 
28 July 2022

Kiran Kachela, Founder of Continuous Improvement Projects, spoke to ThisWeekinFM about what led to her starting her own consultancy business and her recent award wins.

Kiran founded her company in 2012, as an alternative to overly generic, high-cost approaches to solving business challenges.

As a young Asian female entrepreneur working in the male-dominated spaces of facilities management and construction, Kiran’s team is intentionally diverse and full of professionals from different walks of life, sharing a belief in diversity and equality.

Her mission is to break down the biases of what an “expert consultant” should look like and become the “go-to” consultancy for organisations looking to drive efficiencies, profitability and improve customer experience.

The business, now in its tenth year, recently achieved two industry awards in the space of just two months.  Continuous Improvement Projects took home the Best Business Services of the Year prize at the West London Business Awards 2022, and followed it up by winning Micro Business of the Year at the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) Awards 2022.
