WHAT KATE’S CLIENTS SAY
I met Kate for the first time at the YPWA International Women’s Day event in Sydney in 2014. At the time, I was looking to progress my career and to develop my leadership skills. Before that event, I had never really understood the specific challenges that women experience in the corporate workplace. It opened my eyes to the value of the unique skills and qualities that are often so under leveraged in many of today’s workplaces.
