Kate has been invaluable in helping our clients to become more confident and effective on social media. Her expertise and insight, as well as introductions to social media platforms, has been integral to our clients setting up and managing successful social media profiles. I would highly recommend her to other agents to work with their clients.Andrew Roach, MD/Agent, Andrew Roach Talent
I engaged Kate to design and deliver a training package to support the start of a new role, which required me to quickly ramp up on digital ads and digital marketing. In short order, Kate assembled an entirely bespoke series of training that provided a 10,000-foot view of the digital ads ecosystem for small and large businesses before drilling down into tactical decision-making and execution, including hands-on practical sessions. Kate’s training saved me 80+ hours in self-learning and positioned me for success in my new role. Her training was perfectly matched to my needs, and her analytic and creative talents were on full display across formal trainings and hands-on planning and execution sessions.Content and Data Strategist at a leading Global Social Network
Kate is a gifted digital marketer who sees the possibilities and has the ideas. I had the pleasure to work with Kate on the strategy and launch of the FIFA Fan Movement project for two years. Kate’s ability to see an opportunity rather than a challenge and her creative capacity to find the best solution is impressive and one of the reasons I enjoyed working with her. Even at intense moments during the project, Kate was keeping it calm which was contagious to others. It’s without hesitation that I recommend Kate for digital marketing projects, she will be an asset to any company.Sandra Stucki, Manager Digital Fan Marketing, FIFA
Loved working with Kate over a 6 month period. Off the back of the work we did together I am now competent in WordPress website design, have a greater understanding of how to develop a digital strategy for a business, how to launch an online event, not to mention an understanding of the dark arts of SEO and social media algorithms. She is very flexible with her work, a patient teacher and goes to great lengths to ensure results. Thank you Kate.Conor Gilsenan, former Professional Rugby Player turned Entrepreneur
Kate is great. Strength and depth of knowledge – from the practical hands-on tech of digital marketing to the higher-level strategic and creative thinking. Great team player, reliable, personable, dynamic. I’m glad we brought her in on projects and look forward to doing so again.Richard Ayers, Chairman, Seven League
I thought I knew my social media pretty well but the audit Kate did on all my accounts was so thorough and insightful. She’s made suggestions on how to improve engagement, boost posts, plan content and so much more. I was really impressed with the individual feedback for each platform, it has helped me to focus my posts and ensure my content is appropriate. Thank you so much, Kate! Briony May Williams, Presenter & Baker
Kate has been helping me get my digital start-up off the ground, and has such a broad wealth of experience that she has been worth her weight in gold! Not only does she have a fantastic digital background, but she understands start-ups and is a do-er. Kate will always find a solution to a problem, she is determined, happy to adapt to any situation, and brings a healthy dose of realism. I very much hope to work with Kate again.Gayle Harrison, Founder
I’ve worked with Kate in various roles for a number of years so she was the first person I thought of to assist me in recruiting a team and defining the digital strategy as part of a complete relaunch of the Emoov brand. Kate is extremely knowledgeable in the digital arena but it’s her superior communications style that allows her to translate this into impactful strategies for companies to deliver. In my view Kate goes above and beyond what you expect from a consultant and felt more like a fully fledged team member.Lucy Milne, CMO
I found working with Kate was an excellent way to ensure I got the best out of the pitch process and chose the correct agency for my requirements. She helped shape the brief to ensure it covered everything I was after and was invaluable during the pitching process asking those difficult and challenging questions which only an expert in the field would think of.Suzanna McGloin, Head of Marketing, Institute of Directors
Kate acted as a consultant on our recent website redevelopment project. She was excellent at helping us to shape our thoughts and ideas into a coherent plan and providing us with her own analysis and insightful advice. Kate was extremely responsive and always available at the end of a phone to chat, which we really appreciated. I’d have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone looking for a digital marcomms consultant.Alex Marshall, Director of Campaigns and Engagement
Kate has worked with us on a number of successful marketing and development projects. Whether it’s devising strategic insight or providing recommendations on implementation, Kate is direct and thoughtful. With experience in abundance and driven by ideas it’s hard not to benefit from working with Kate.Daniel Titterton, Pi Datametrics
Kate has been working with our students at UCA Epsom BA (Hons) Fashion Management and Marketing course for a few years now. Every time she comes in she is able to inspire and engage our students on the world on digital marketing. Her extensive experience and expansive knowledge helps to develop our students understanding and encourages creative idea generation through workshops and discussions. Thank you Kate for taking the time to visit us!Ayshen Ali, Lecturer, Fashion Management and Marketing, University for the Creative Arts
We’re a social creative agency which has grown rather quickly, so needed some help with structure, communication and various other growing pains. Kate had previously been a client at L’Oreal, who we’d loved working with, so when we heard she was doing consultancy, we asked her to help. Kate interviewed all team members and put together a session to talk through findings and ideas. It was massively helpful and we’ve implemented a number of the ideas in our day-to-day running of the company. We massively recommend Kate both as a consultant and a marketing mastermind, and as a bonus – she’s lovely too!David Levin, That Lot
As a small business with a large number of clients we can sometimes be stretched for time. One aspect that we haven’t been able to focus on is our social media strategy and output.
Kate quickly identified where we could promote IWillKnowSomeone and our clients better, immediately rectified our tech problems and set about creating a strategy for the company and the clients. She’s self sufficient, efficient and driven – I’m very glad she found us.Melissa Chappell, IWillKnowSomeone
Kate joined the organising committee of the Barnes Charity Fashion Show last year. She revolutionised our social media; started a blog, a twitter account and set up a website. She is brilliant at giving us ideas and is a wonderful helpful member of the team. We had the most successful show ever. We would now be lost without her!Isobel Woolf, Chairman, Barnes Charity Fashion Show

I have known Kate for a few years now. As one of our customers, she was very proactive and contacted us to offer her help with an online survey, and also recommended that we integrated a Net Promoter Score question into the survey so that we could get an accurate grip on what our customers thought of the Tekkers brand, business, marketing and customer service.
Kate’s recommendations and advice proved very valuable, and in the first survey we sent out, we got a phenomenal response from our customers, as well as very high engagement levels. Our Net Promoter Score was hugely positive and each year after that, we used the framework of Kate’s advice to run an annual survey with our customer base.Joe Sillett, Managing Director, Tekkers
I have known and worked with Kate for almost 5 years. I’ve always been impressed by the quality and speed of her work. And I know that I can come to her for ideas, she thinks in a different way creatively!
She edited my e-book ‘Passion for Football‘ and did all the technical work to get it published. She has advised me on the use of my social media platforms and worked with me on numerous blogs and articles online.Rohan Ricketts, Professional Footballer
