Kate listens deeply and asks the right questions. She has a way of quickly understanding a complex terrain or set of conditions and then drilling down without losing sight of the big picture and a company’s core values. Running a values-based business, generating revenue and growing a business do not have to be at odds. How do I pay my vendors and contractors well and remain profitable? Externalizing those business costs is not an option for me and Kate has helped me articulate my value proposition within these core values. It’s better business, every way you slice it! And she’s just plain fun to work with, so smart, thoughtful and caring and she doesn’t let you off the hook. You’d better be ready to think big and bold!
