Over the last several years, I have introduced Kate to a number of my clients who needed executive level strategic input on re-thinking their go-to-market or corporate branding. I am impressed by her deep marketing background coupled with her ability to get things done. She is totally up-to-date with new marketing tools and techniques enabled by social media and the internet. It is always a pleasure to work with Kate.
Kate was able to quickly assess and analyze a market new to her and to provide us with fresh perspective on the business. Her open minded approach and ability to effectively distill large quantities of information into clear and relevant recommendations helped us tremendously in determining new strategic direction for the business.

We hired right & left to help us launch our new suite of Digital Services for global scholarly publishers. We had never attempted launching or selling anything like this before and were in uncharted territory. Kate stepped in and quickly provided an assessment of our needs. Her leadership across multiple stakeholders and quick access to the critical outside resources and her expert advice and guidance thoughout enabled us to: define the brand; develop and execute the plan; and launch within only 6 months of the kick off. The market response at the exhibition where we launched, greatly exceeded our expectations.

Kate and I worked closely together on the launch of a new service for a leading academic press. Kate understood how to develop a sound strategy and how to bring it to life – efficiently and successfully.

We have had the pleasure of working with Kate for many years on a wide array of projects. In 2012 Kate worked with us, leading the re-launch of our website from a branding perspective. We knew that every step of the way Kate genuinely had HirePower’s best interests at heart & she made ongoing recommendations on achieving the long term objectives of our re-launch while being cognizant of short term constraints. When Kate came on board we had already started the process and were going in a different direction, but Kate took the time that was required, asked probing questions and led us to make the right decisions. We were all delighted with the end product. The process of working with Kate was effortless. Kate’s leadership, business acumen, creativity and expertise gave us complete peace of mind and Kate was truly vested in the success of our project.

Kate is a fantastic marketing expert and I have worked with her on a few projects now. Kate has worked with some big name brands such as Bell and Procter & Gamble, but has a unique ability to tailor her extensive knowledge to smaller projects also. Not only is she extremely clear and concise, she’s very strategic in the way that she works on projects and I value her ability to engage at every level, providing practical solutions to a wide range of challenges.
