Kate has over 15 years experience in strategic marketing with some of the world’s most successful brands including American Express, Sony, Toyota and Lincoln Center. Motivated by “what’s next”, Kate’s passion is identifying ways that organizations can shape their strategy to meet the growing consumer demand for value exchange and brand purpose.
She’s also passionate about helping non-profits better connect with younger donors through understanding digital behaviors, consumer motivations and generational barriers such as “slacktivism”.
