Kate Ward founded Spartacus Associates Limited as a Management Consultancy practice in 1999.  She remains the owner and sole Director.

From 2000 to 2006 Spartacus Associates Limited delivered Management Consultancy exclusively through The Consultancy Company.  This arrangement enabled Spartacus Associates to build up a client list whilst benefiting from being part of a larger consultancy group.    During this time Kate became Director of The Consultancy Company's Public Services Division.  In this role Kate, and thereby Spartacus Associates, had responsibility for Public Services business development and for the recruitment and coaching of other consultants.  Kate also provided support to colleagues in building their own consultancy careers and companies.

In 2002 Spartacus Associates Limited moved from Southampton to its current location in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire.

In October 2006 we terminated our contract with The Consultancy Company so that Spartacus Associates Limited could deliver consultancy and coaching services directly to clients.
