WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?
Cate is a masterful facilitator, design thinker, and communicator. I have had the pleasure of collaborating with her on multiple convenings and have seen her focus on delivering authentic, meaningful, and effective sessions first-hand. Most recently, Cate co-created and co-facilitated a workshop rooted in design thinking and biomimicry for an Impactathon event. She was able to foster a sense of grounding and deep connection among participants which added depth to their subsequent small group work. Highly recommend Cate for catalysing an innovation mindset for any group!

"Cate is exactly the type of person that you want to engage with to help transform your organization. Whether your challenges are cultural, strategic, or focused on diversity and equity she’s one of the first I’d call for a spark of enthusiasm and action. I've hired Cate as a speaker, innovation consultant, and most recently a strategist to drive forward a range of global initiatives for me and my company. She has never ceased to exceed my (and my team’s) expectations every step of the way."

"Cate is a rare, and valued talent and I want others to know. Cate is a leader in improving the culture...in a way that encourages authenticity and engagement. She asks us to think about our end users and listen to them rather than letting us rest in thinking that we know what they need. Cate is a great addition to any team. Thank you, Cate, for everything you do, Post-Its and smiles every day."
STEPHANIE CHIN, SPICY CONVERSATIONS
"Working with Cate has transformed my capacity to problem solve. Cate has an ability to bring the latent ideas I hadn't ever managed to identify straight to the surface. She asks thoughtful, probing questions and creates a container for creative thinking unlike anyone I've ever worked with. Cate draws on her own experiences and perspectives to provide insights and strategies, but also emphasizes the strength of a multi-faceted approach to problem solving. Her wisdom in design thinking is rich, and she makes the process enjoyable and useful. I would highly recommend Cate to anyone who is looking to take their thinking, strategizing, and problem-solving to the next level."
