Speakers at this forum include Kate Middleton, CEO of Censeo and Cat Matson, Brisbane’s Chief Digital Officer. Their topics are ‘Investment, scale and exit: lessons learned from a serial entrepreneur’ and ‘Digital trendspotting for 2019′.

Kate is the youngest and only female CEO of an engineering company in Australia. She is an award-winning executive, board member and investor with 16 years success driving financial turnaround, customer experience, partnerships, cultural changes and innovation solutions into the insurance, investment, construction and engineering sectors. She has established a track record of turning traditional bricks and mortar businesses into high-volume, technology-driven profit machines.

In October 2016, Kate won Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year at the Women’s Agenda Leadership Awards in Sydney. More recently, she was a Finalist of the 2017 Channel 7 Business Person of the Year category at the Lord Mayor’s Business Awards. Her ambition is to bring a level of kindness, humour, integrity and collaboration into big business that elevates profit and demonstrates the upside of truly engaged and diverse work forces.

Cat Matson is a regular panellist and moderator for key industry events. Through these roles, she regularly connects with some of the best minds and ideas in the marketing, interactive and online spaces. Named in the Sydney Morning Herald as a rising female star in the technology sector, Cat is considered an industry leader when it comes to digital media, with a savvy business mind and a broad understanding of the wider business context.
