Kate is a remarkably capable, inspiring and thoughtful person. Her influence on the WA game developer community speaks for itself, but I was particularly impressed with her abilities as a coach. I was presumably not the easiest speaker to work with, carrying a mixture of nervousness and fixed ideas to the event, and can attest to Kate’s patience and consideration. There is no question that she is one of our best and brightest. Scott Ludlam, Former Senator for Western Australia
It was my pleasure to invite Kate to join me with three other VR/visualisation experts on a panel on ‘3D Graphics in the World Wide Web’ at this year’s International World Wide Web conference, held in Perth in April. Kate provided thoughtful insight and clear strategic thinking that provided enormous benefit to a room of researchers and practitioners. I would recommend Kate to as someone both qualified to talk to professionals around these emerging topics in a clear, articulate and engaging way. Mark Pesce, Futurist & Inventor of VRML (Virtual Reality Markup Language)
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
Kate is a top class thinker, leader and facilitator. She ran a games/XR workshop for me at Deakin a while back which got rave reviews from colleagues. She is hands on and effective, not a “lecturer” but a leader to new ideas. Professor Matthew Allen, Deakin University
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.
