It is very easy to be different but very difficult to be better

Be Better

This simple phrase has become a mantra and driver for me in the last 12 months, and a call to welcome, and even embrace, growth and change. 

When the 10-year anniversary of my consultancy business arrived last April, it was time to reflect and make a plan to be better. Awed and inspired by the creativity, drive and passion shown by my clients in growing and building their brands, I have absorbed critical lessons about handling the hurdles that come with that growth. Finding common themes that define these challenges, I felt compelled to find a way to expand my reach; to share my accumulated wisdom to help to as many owners, managers and teams as possible. And, critically, I decided not to do this alone.

After a year of collaborating with my talented new team members and honing our vision, we are thrilled to announce the expansion of our service and leadership consultancy and a name change to Kate Edwards & Company. 

Now joined by dynamic pros with deep experience in training design and facilitation, customer service, leadership development and operations, I am thrilled to be bringing my vision to life and to be able to offer our services to an ever-broadening scope of clients in hospitality, technology and other customer-focused businesses. 

In addition to our expanded offerings in leadership development, team training, operations assessments and restaurant opening coaching, I will be able to reach a wider audience as I focus on speaking engagements, motivating teams to strive to be better as a keynote speaker, panel moderator and emcee. 

I hope you will enjoy perusing our website to meet our team, view videos and blog posts and explore our service offerings.

Thank you so much for your continued support!


The greatest thing in the world is not so much where we stand as in what direction we are moving”
