Biography

Kate has built out People departments across finance and tech start-ups in China, the US, and the UK. As a founder and former business owner, she knows that finding and retaining the most talented people, and creating a culture that celebrates and supports them, are both crucial factors in building an adaptive and innovative company that can scale quickly and whether the start-up roller-coaster.

She believes using data and People Analytics tools is one of the best strategies for getting buy-in from other leaders on Talent strategies. She has built People Analytics frameworks from basic spreadsheets, talent surveys, and ATS systems for teams that scaled from 10-250; and has learnt cutting-edge tools and theory during her time at Bloomberg working with their world-class People Analytics team.

Using data to drive People Strategy, and metrics to build entrepreneurial and innovative cultures, are what excites her about working in the People space.
