Kate’s 10 years experience in marketing and event management in New Zealand provides valuable insights across digital marketing and communication.
Her marketing expertise is multi-faceted as a result of working within the sports events industry. From developing key marketing strategies to delivering the nuts and bolts of all the marketing essentials including market research, brand management, communication, social media, creative, content development, and media planning. She describes herself as a dreaming realist when it comes to marketing and events. As a result she enjoys generating exciting new ideas but always has the end user at the forefront.
Kate grew up in South Africa, and after completing her Bachelors Degree at the University of Stellenbosch she decided an adventure was on the cards. Her adventure brought her to Auckland, New Zealand where she completed her Honours Degree at Auckland University of Technology. Kate is familiar with both the New Zealand and Australian market given her loyal career with one of New Zealand’s most reputable professional sports organisations who play in the Australian league.
She now calls Auckland home and you can most likely catch her enjoying New Zealand’s backyard paddle-boarding in the ocean or hiking in the numerous beautiful kiwi spots. Her sense of adventure extends to her passion for travelling where she especially loves trying local cuisines and attending events unique to the destination.
Kate joins the Canuckiwi team as our Digital & Web Strategy Associate.
