We have some exciting news
for all our Kickstart clients...

Kickstart is rebranding to 1st Contact Sable International! For the last 18 months we've been slowly merging with our big brother, Sable International. Over the next few months we're going to complete that merger.

This will in no way affect your relationship with us. We're not going anywhere, as the entire Kickstart team will be in the same roles at Sable International. You'll still get that great Kickstart service, just under a new name.

We'll be keeping you in the loop as we prepare for the next exciting phase in this rebranding.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us directly.
