Taking on some thought leadership opportunities

Kate explains her decision to speak at such a prestigious conference and how it was all about challenging herself to step outside her comfort zone. 

"I challenged myself to take on a couple of thought leadership opportunities because I felt like I should start learning how to be comfortable openly sharing my thoughts. It started out with me entertaining the idea of perhaps writing an article or white paper, then perhaps a panel or a conference presentation," she says.

"I told my boss that I could always pull back mid-year if it was too far outside of my comfort zone. Here we are, one paper down, one panel down right at mid year and I am swimming in the deep end of my comfort zone."

Learning and developing in her career at 84.51°

For Kate, speaking at the ANA Digital and Social Media Conference was a fantastic development and learning opportunity. 

"I’ll admit I was terrified right before I went up on stage, but it felt natural and not terrifying at all. This is in part because of the two wonderful souls on stage with me. I am grateful for the opportunity to continue developing and learning. Your perspectives are important. Meeting people and hearing their ideas is important," she adds.

"To truly innovate you must step outside of yourself and your normal practices. Here’s to leaning in to the discomfort."
