Words from our friends
‘Absolutely blown away’
When I booked Kate to speak at CopyCon, I was expecting smart and engaging, having seen her speak on LinkedIn. But I was absolutely blown away by her delivery. Her topic was so personable and totally hit home with the crowd. She was hilarious, sharp and totally confident. I just loved it. Highly recommended."

‘Enthusiastic and engaging presenter’
Kate regularly presents online workshops on content marketing for the City of Boroondara. She is an enthusiastic and engaging presenter, with a natural warm style that makes participants feel at ease. She openly shares her considerable knowledge on content marketing and thought leadership. Kate gives participants a good understanding of why they should invest in content marketing as well as practical tips on how to get started. Feedback on Kate’s sessions from local business owners is always positive.

‘What a joy it was to watch’
What a joy it was to watch Kate speak at CopyCon this year! Her humour, spark and business smarts all shine through when she presents, and she had the whole room giggling away in the palm of her hand the whole way through. Can't wait to see you speak again soon Kate!

‘One of the standouts’
Kate's presentation at CopyCon 2022 was one of the stand-outs for me. Her insights were practical, clear, and sparked so many great conversations among the attendees. Her personable approach made it impossible to look away - the audience nodded along throughout from start to finish, as we reflected, laughed, and learned. A hugely enjoyable and educational experience - I highly recommend Kate as a speaker for any business event.

‘Delivered an amazing presentation’
Kate delivered an amazing presentation for CopyCon 2022 on her experiences with freelancing, niching and coaching. Kate was brilliant and funny, full of anecdotes and valuable insights on how she's grown her business. I came away with a lot of great tips for my own business. I'd highly recommend her as a speaker for your event.

I've been featured on:
Questions to ask me in your podcast:
- What is fear of showing up and how do we get over it?
- Thought leadership is just a wanky marketing team, right?
- How do we get clear on our message?
- Explain the secret reason many people's content is tanking (and what to do about it)
- I hate LinkedIn: why should I even bother?
- Why was video marketing such a game-changer for you?
You’re brilliant at what you do. You get fabulous results. But you don’t have the profile you want. You’re ready to stop overthinking and start taking action to blow your own socks off.
