I worked with Kate for a short period during 2015, and really enjoyed working with her.  She has the ability to understand business issues and work with business leaders to reach a resolution quickly and effectively.  She can drive change through an organisation at pace, is great at building relationships, has high levels of resilience and she approaches things in a really calm mature way which is a real asset to any organisation.

I really look forward to working with Kate in the future.
