Speaker: Kate Gray

Building brands / customers / talent at ambitious companies

Kate began her career in US national politics. Since that time, her professional experience has focused on business strategy and growth, and marketing and communications brand and strategy drawing on the fundamentals she learned in Washington, DC.

She has consulted with and held Board-level roles at established global and national businesses, along with start-ups and early stage companies. Her sector experience includes technology, pharmaceutical, media, luxury travel, FMCG and retail.

Kate considers herself fortunate to have worked with talented and focused investors, highly successful global executives, passionate and charismatic entrepreneurs, innovative political strategists, and regular people at all levels of organisations who are simply trying to do things better. There has also been plenty of time spent with incredibly unpleasant power mongers, angry middle managers, and incompetent investors. Life is about learning...

She's currently working with Chris Matts and Dan North at Jackstone Consulting, as well as other engagements with global brands. Extra time is devoted to mentoring women in tech and London start-ups.
