Kate began her career in US national politics. She is still a keen observer of campaigns, with friends and colleagues leading the strategies at major races around the world.
Since that time, her professional experience has focused on business strategy and growth, along with marketing, brand, and communications strategy drawing on the fundamentals of how to organise a grassroots campaign that she learned in Washington, DC.
She has consulted with and held Board-level roles at established global and national businesses, worked with investors across their portfolios, and spent time at start-ups and early stage companies. Her sector experience includes technology, pharmaceutical, media, luxury travel, FMCG and retail.
She's currently working on an enterprise agile transformation programme at a major financial services company. Free time is devoted to mentoring technology start-ups in a number of sectors and supporting women who are interested in working in technology.
