I’m Cathy, an expert in bringing People& Culture Strategy to life through impactful communications.
Working with people and organisations across multiple industries and sizes, I help enhance reputation and employee experiences through candid and heart-centred communication.
I share my knowledge and lived experiences through keynote speaking, workshop facilitation, coaching & mentoring.
I advocate for a diverse representation of keynote speakers and suppliers at events. I’m big on taking action which is why I founded Keynoteworthy in 2019 to work towards solving this problem.
I’m multi-passionate, which means I love getting involved in 101 different things – but my bread and butter is in Human Resources and Communications, advising senior leaders and executives within top-tier firms.
Some random tidbits
So, yes, I work in HR, but I have a sense of humour! I dabble in stand-up comedy from time to time. It scares me to death, but something is thrilling about being thrown into the deep end. It’s why I do things like bungee jumping and love improvising (give me a topic or scenario, and I’ll tell you a story like my life depended on it).
In case you wanted to hear something personal
- I’m a mother to two humans and two dog children
- I advocate for mental health, which is why I’m a proud Ambassador for the Gidget Foundation
- A few lovely humans and I opened a shelter for women and children experiencing family and domestic violence back in 2017
- I do pro bono work for various organisations, including Share the Dignity
Empathy & Inclusion First
Empathy is our ability to put ourselves in the shoes of others and to understand what another person is experiencing. This is key to inclusion and setting a common ground.
Increasing diversity in the workplace enhances creativity and innovation. Teams that see the same thing in different ways are more likely to get a wider range of perspectives and an infusion of fresh ideas, improving the productivity of the workforce.
Enjoy the Journey
Remember to enjoy the journey of life. Don’t be so caught up on the finish line that you miss the journey of getting there.
