“As someone who has been obsessed with the creative process his entire adult life, I found Kate’s presentation at Wilton Park’s forum in Los Angeles to be not only compelling, but fun as well. Which was, of course, the whole point: creativity starves unless it’s richly endowed with the frivolity and warmth required to unlock the kind of risk taking that yields truly new ideas. Kate’s brilliant articulation of this important principle to some of the most creative minds on the planet was enthusiastically received.” US Admiral Sandy Winnefeld, ex-Vice Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
