I have had the pleasure of working with Kate on the commercialisation of the Eddie Stobart Training Academy and Driving School. Kate has been an inspiration in her ideas of how we get these products to market and achieve a wide and diverse media coverage.
She not only demonstrates a passion for her role, but also the ability to take on new projects that are both difficult and critical to the company's growth. The work Kate has done is already reaping financial benefits.

I have worked with Kate over many years but I saw the full range of her skills and abilities when she led the national communications team in the Environment Agency. She is insightful and has an instinct on how and when best to engage with both communities and the media.
During major flood events she calmly managed a number of comms and media teams in what is a crucial role during a major crisis. Kate was also a trusted adviser to the Executive Team and mixed professionalism and a bit of fun masterfully.
John Curtin, Executive Director of Flood & Coastal Risk, Environment Agency
It was a pleasure to work with Kate. She has great ideas, thinks strategically and is delivery focused. She is also an inspiring leader with clear vision and clarity of communication.
Her fast pace and attention to detail is impressive and she is always quick to change approach based on latest evidence and insight to get the best from campaigns and communications.
Elayne Phillips, Head of Engagement, Ministry of Justice
Kate is a team player and also a challenger at heart. I have found her counsel to be expert whilst remaining innovative and leading.
She has a strong focus on leadership and diversity but most of all is incredibly fun to work with. I would recommend Kate in a heartbeat.
John Leyland, Chief of Staff, Environment Agency
Kate is an accomplished, experienced communications professional and is always good fun to work with.
Enthusiastic and positive about the role of effective communications in securing outcomes.
