I have worked for Kate at Austrade and as a freelancer for Destination NSW, more recently partnering with KPC on independent projects. Kate is the consumate PR professional with outstanding strategic skills, a realtime awareness of unfolding industry trends and issues, and first-rate connections in media, government and events. Her ability to cut through noise and focus on critical issues is at the heart of a history delivering great results on major projects and headline events over many years.

Kate was a very sage and supportive partner to Mardi Gras in my time there, providing great insight into how to maximise positive press exposure and to grow the Mardi Gras brand. She is a very insightful and connected communications professional.

Kate is a fantastic communications strategist. She sees the big picture clearly and can cut through the noise that sometimes comes with multiple stakeholders involved in the decision making process across communication campaigns. Kate has built a stunning and enviable career in marketing and communications and I’ve enjoyed working with her at Austrade as well as at Destination NSW. Hardworking, creative, whip smart, witty and funny – all round marketing and communications’ professional.

Kate is perhaps one of the most dynamic and talented personalities in the industry. I had the pleasure of working with her very closely on a number of projects; from evolving Brand Australia to working on international events like APEC, Kate had the ability to see everyone’s viewpoint and develop a solution that worked. She’s smart and savvy, and simply a joy to be around.
