Kate’s passion at work is for bridging the gap between technology and people at work, translating for HR professionals the language of HR systems and making meaningful their potential. She believes that success with people technology is through people and that people are the differentiator.
Using simple techniques drawn from HR experience, project management, business psychology and analogy with everyday life, Kate presents and explains how to work well with technology and technology projects in an HR leadership role.
With a background in contrasting private and public sector HR management, Kate developed her thinking in seeking for herself to understand her first HR systems project-work. Currently she leads as Managing Director for Phase 3 Consulting, offering an independent take on the HR systems market in the UK.
Kate’s guiding principle is that openness offers knowledge-sharing, credibility and trust, best delivered with incorrigible enthusiasm.

That is exactly where I'm coming from, Shonette! When I started in HR tech I sat on my hands too many times in not understanding and since then I've seen the other side of the table in those IT/HR or project meetings. Recently I felt like applauding a Payroll lead for asking me at Project Board meeting to explain what "cloud-based" actually meant. That lady looked far from stupid! Confidence, particularly when you are a client of a supplier or service provider, is something everyone should feel they can afford.
