Drawing upon her network of creative industry contacts, Kate provides credible insights on the technological and human innovations that will change the shape of business over the next two to five years.
Kate is the driving force behind GDR Creative Intelligence, a consultancy focused on strategic inspiration for world leading companies. She currently works with an impressive roster of brands including Microsoft, Coca-Cola, P&G, Hilton, LVMH, Capital One, Macy’s, Tesco and Sephora.
She uses carefully curated case studies to illustrate how new technologies and consumer behaviours will impact physical and digital commerce; case studies discovered by GDR’s expert research team, or drawn from her network – honed over 22 years – of leading engineers, programmers, designers, architects and other specialist practitioners.
‘Meaningful innovation often starts with inspiration from unexpected places,’ says Ancketill. ‘I love to show how taking a concept from one sector, tweaking it and applying it to another can lead to world-beating bottom line success.’
Kate works closely with clients when planning her presentation and each is bespoke. Kate’s presentations combine the inspirational with the practical. Her audiences take away concrete action points for future-proofing their business, a broad perspective on priorities for investment and a mind fizzing with cutting-edge, stimulating and challenging concepts and possibilities.
