About Kate

Kate Baucherel BA(Hons) FCMA CGMA is a writer, speaker, and digital strategist specialising in the application of emerging technologies, with a focus on the use of blockchain and cryptocurrency. She is the author of several books including Blockchain Hurricane: Origins, Applications and Future of Blockchain and Cryptocurrency (BEP 2020), the What’s Hot in Blockchain and Crypto series (2020,2021) and the SimCavalier cybercrime thrillers.

In a career spanning more than 30 years, Kate has held senior technical and financial roles in businesses across multiple sectors including utilities, manufacturing, leisure and software, leading several enterprises through their start-up and growth phases. Her interest in technology was sparked at her first role with an IBM business partner in Denver, back when the AS/400 was a cutting-edge piece of hardware and the World Wide Web didn’t exist. She now works with clients from start-up to blue chip multinationals in the UK, Europe and around the world.

Kate graduated in business from Newcastle University, is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, and lectures at Teesside University in both the Business School and the School of Computing, Engineering & Digital Technologies. She holds a 2nd Dan black belt in karate and lives in the UK with her husband and two teenagers.

What a fantastic and passionate Guest Speaker Kate Baucherel is. Her digital knowledge is amazing and she had our audience captivated at our recent Industry Digital Roadshow for the Digital Skills for Growth project, where Kate's skills align perfectly to the ethos of the project.

Kate is an amazing speaker and powerful motivator. By using a combination of her advanced knowledge of technology, a superhuman imagination and a talent for storytelling, Kate not only makes future predictions about technology and the world we live in, but also inspires all types of people to imagine their own future.

I had the pleasure of attending one of Kate's talks and I was genuinely inspired.

Tom Johnson
Ethical Hacker and Social Engineer

Kate is not only highly knowledgeable about IT, but she is also an excellent writer, speaker and moderator on the subject too. It was a pleasure to be able to invite her to speak at Blockchain Summit London, where she moderated a track for us.

Although Blockchain itself is a highly complex concept, she demonstrated an excellent ability to talk about the subject in depth in an accessible and open way that everyone could relate to and engage with, which was a great asset to the conference.
