Kate is the most versatile of presenters: equally at home in front of a camera, hosting a conference, running panel discussions and Q&As or moderating an event via Zoom. 

 

Over a career spanning 3 decades, she’s appeared on broadcast TV, acted in TV commercials - she was a Fairy Mum, much to the amusement of her family & friends! - presented corporate news programmes for a myriad of clients and hosted live events from city briefings to roadshows to award ceremonies at The Grosvenor.

She has tackled topics as diverse as wheely-bins, international standards, fire extinguishers, mortgages, cars, smart cities and the projected rise of robotics in healthcare. You name it, she’s probably talked about it!

 

Kate is also an experienced voice over artist with her own home studio; her clear tones and articulation are often put to good use for audiences abroad where English is a second language. She will even admit to being the voice of the Nat West Tower lift!

 

Although she scrubs up well, you’re most likely to find her in a pair of jeans and wellies in a field somewhere with her beloved horse, Henry or rowing Cornish Pilot Gigs off the Dorset coast.

 

Kate has a passionate interest in the understanding and care of people with dementia. She looked after her father when he was diagnosed with Lewy Body dementia and was so impressed by the help she received from a tiny local charity, Contented Dementia Trust, that as a thank you she and her film-maker husband raised the necessary budget through a system of pledges to make the documentary; 'Finding a Way to Contended Dementia'.
