Kate has got an incredible enthusiasm for business and makes it really accessible to the audience. She's also got an eye for what's new and what's innovative and is usually ahead of the curve, so she's able to deliver fresh and valuable insights to the audience.


We used Kate as a 'conference anthropologist' and to MC our awards this year. Both services were great. Kate delivered a succinct wrap of the conference that we have been able to use to get out to both attendees and our wider audience and her MCing was pitch perfect! As she had been at the conference all day she was across what our industry was about and this created a great rapport with the audience. She was at the same time funny and complimentary about what investor relations specialists do and made it a night to remember.
