I enable individuals, teams, and organisations to be fearlessly future ready.
Harness the power of play
Play shifts mindsets.
Play liberates and provokes new thinking. It enables creativity and innovation.
Play makes what seems hard, effortless.
My clients are continually surprised at the richness of the changes that play enables, empowering individuals, teams and organisations to move forward in new and surprising ways.
This is why a playful spirit runs through everything I do.
Dr. Kate is one of the smartest and most interesting people I know. I am not at all insecure about my own talents, but being around her makes me want to try harder, to think deeper, to step up and be the best I can be. Everything she says comes across as really thought provoking and considered. She has a depth and breadth that really changes the game.MICHELLE SANDFORD, MICROSOFT
We recently invited Kate to be our opening speaker on the second day of our annual flagship event, the Women in Focus Conference, Big Thinkers and Change Makers. To say she was outstanding is an understatement. Knowledgeable, professional, engaging, on point, and captivating. Her keynote was exactly what we were looking for, completely fitted our brief, and theme, the audience was enthralled. I would highly recommend Kate for pretty much anything.RUTH LYONS, COMMONWEALTH BANK
Need an engaging, informative and unique keynote speaker for your conference or event? I’m your woman!
I’m available for a variety of topics including the future of work and education; VR/AR/MR; and why you need to be paying attention to games (hint: the industry is bigger than film and music combined and will was worth $140 billion USD in 2018)
Team building with playfulness
Innovative, future ready teams need truly innovative team building. Escape the Box: Team building by Design is totally unique, highly effective and engaging approach to team building.
Escape the Box harnesses the power of play to enable deep learning through experience. The results are transformative.
It is rare to be able to actually practice the complete set of skills taught in a workshop, during the workshop itself. I think that helps people to have the confidence to go ahead use the skills themselves.Dr. Claire Vanderplank, Department of Transport (Western Australia)
