Kate was utterly brilliant as chair of the keynote panel discussion at our Mumsnet Bumpfest event. Our event was for parents-to-be, and the topic under discussion was ‘After the apocalypse: what to expect in the weeks following birth’. Kate navigated the discussion expertly, taking in contributions from health professionals and new mums, and lots of questions from the audience, whilst also offering personal anecdotes and tips of her own. All this was delivered with utmost competence, while was juggling her newborn son Wilbur on her hip – demonstrating in the most apt way possible to this audience – that there is life after birth, and just how possible it is to multi-task!

Kate is a great professional with a good insight into the business challenges facing the global and automotive market at this time and was able to create a well planned and challenging interview format for the Directors of Peugeot, relaying many of the questions the dealers themselves really felt needed answering.
