Triple Bottom Line Champion
After 15 years of senior sales, marketing and customer service experience at major corporations, Kathleen began consulting and brought her expertise to Africa working with SME’s to help strengthen their export businesses.

She has lead revolutionary initiatives throughout her career including; the launch of ScotTowel Ultra during the time of Bounty’s introduction into Canada – won the Canadian Grand Prix new product award for its launch transformed the grocery deli section with the launch of premium products and a new profitable merchandising and pricing strategy led the development of an African multi-country initiative; Design Africa which has garnered worldwide recognition as an innovative global brand showcasing Africa’s best talent in the craft, textile and furniture sector
