In 2010 emerging from, infertility, divorce, and the deaths of half my family, I decided to rewrite the entire future story of my personal and professional life. Starting with building a unique on-line business model helping senior executives, pilots, bankers, doctors olympians, entrepreneurs, school leavers and just about anybody in between, step towards their personal purpose and career potential. Carving out a niche in the uber competitive Aviation Industry, Pinstripe Solutions Interview Coaching has gained an international reputation. Anyone wanting a confidence boost, to move up the corporate ladder or into the cockpit of a wide body jet simply... calls Kirsty. And no, I cannot fly an aircraft!

My philosophy, look at what you can do, not at what you can’t. After all, this dreadful speller just wrote a book. If I can do it, so can you. I live in Sydney with my dog ‘Bentley’ & new husband who I share with anything over a 2-foot swell.



The Things That Make You 'You' Can become Your 


The ability to talk about yourself is a life skill, one that set you on a path to anything and everything. Using the metaphor an albino chameleon named Ben - a chameleon unable to use colour to disguise his true self, Kirsty Anne Ferguson walks us through humorous stories and engaging tasks to find out how to say to the world "this is me."

As a global interview coach to top guns and airline pilots, Kirsty has seen how each of our stories differs yet contain elements that connect us. She tells us that your story, just like hers, is unique, it matters. Even if you think you have nothing special to offer, she insists you do.

This new release is being read in over 10 countries already, from the Uk to Europe, from New York to Brazil.
