Kate is a true inspiration. Somehow she seems to balance family, work, charity and everything in between effortlessly and with huge positive impact. Her straight-talking, no nonsense approach is refreshing to hear and her insightful and passionate support of employees, giving back to the community and championing the customer at the heart of everything we do is something we can all learn from.”

My Mummy’s Pennies

I also attended Breaking Boundaries with Insight and Passion with Kate Hardcastle, whom I found to be really interesting to listen to. She is a mum herself and a big supporter of women in business , but is much more used to talking to huge halls full of businessmen from around the world, rather than a small room of bloggers. Although very direct, her advice rang true, and I will certainly be bearing her suggestion to ‘sell your idea to your harshest critic before investing money and time in it’ in mind. I was impressed to hear of her charity work and that all her employees get to give 20% of their working week back to a charity of their choice.

The Family Patch

One of my favourite sessions throughout the entire weekend was the one held by Kate Hardcastle called Breaking Boundaries with Insight and Passion. Kate personifies the very nature of sharing success with others, as shown by just how much she gives back through her work. However she also doesn’t mince her words, and was more than happy to lay it on the line and make sure we knew exactly what it takes to make our dreams a reality.

I’m also very grateful for my chat with Kate Hardcastle at the end of her session, for helping me see through what had happened and acknowledging that letting go didn’t automatically equate to no longer caring.
