Katherine has been a real inspiration to work with. She developed and led our pilot Leaders in Cultural Learning (LiCL) programme with charm and charisma, always underpinned by a real person-centred and collaborative style... Her generous and supportive yet always challenging approach made for a deep and profound learning experience for all participants.
