  • Kate is not only highly knowledgable about IT, but she is also an excellent writer, speaker and moderator on the subject too. Having known Kate for the last decade, and it was a pleasure to be able to invite her to speak at our latest event, 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. We recommend Kate's work highly and look forward to collaborating her again in the future.
