Before setting up Compelling Culture, Catherine's career spanned Media & Telecoms, Behavioural Healthcare, Utility, FMCG and Childcare. The theme was creating a workplace where people were proud of something they believed in and inspired to evolve the culture. Catherine's superpower is absorbing an organisation's ambition, defining the strategy and providing a compelling plan everyone can get behind. Having collaborated with Executive teams, every business area and HR, she understand the complexity in creating sustainable change. She's been on the inside, know how organisations operate, and learnt tonnes about what works (and what doesn't).
Team dynamics, financials, safety, employee engagement, diversity, employer brand, regulatory ranking, reputation, broadcast and marketing that reflect society, you name it – it rocketed. Catherine also picked up a few external accolades, her proudest is Sky being named the most Inclusive Employer in the UK, two years after launching the vision.
