“It was announced on November 8, 2016 Kate is the winner of the prestigious 2017 Australian Of The Year Awards in South Australia. She was also a SA Finalist in 2016.

If you want to know how to turn an organisation of eight people into one that spans the globe across 47 countries, in just over four years, I can tell you how. As co-founder and current Chair & CEO of Dementia Alliance International, I have done just that.

Wanting to change the world is easy, doing it is far more complicated… speakign at your events will giv eyou insights into my approach to this in claiming the human rights for the 50 milllion people living with dementia globally, and those livign in residential aged care.

I have many other personal examples of survival through sheer determination and resilience, something i believe can be developed. They are my stories of love, life and loss, and they may inspire your teams. It you want to know how to survive the suicide loss of a partner aged 27, divorce and domestic violence, cancer, brain surgery, betrayal by ‘close family and friends’ which included being defamed and called a medical fraud, and even a diagnosis of dementia, I can give you quite a few tips. That is because I’ve been through them all.

If you invite me as a speaker or consultant, all Nett proceeds go to Dementia Alliance International.
