Kate studied medicine in London, qualifying in 2002. Following a “portfolio” medical career in the NHS including surgical, critical care and emergency medicine training, Kate headed out to sea as a ship’s doctor. She worked on cruise ships all over the world before being appointed as Medical Director for Carnival UK (P&O Cruises and Cunard) in 2010. In that role, she was responsible for all aspects of Medical and Public Health.
During that time she also developed the medical services provided at events held on the Goodwood Estate, including the Festival of Speed and Goodwood Revival. This led to the formation of MB Medical Solutions, a company Kate runs with her business partner Katie Miller, providing first-class medical services to a range of events and organisations looking for a customer-focussed solution.
In April this year Kate also set up Lemonade Thinking, and now consults on a variety of Medical, Public Health and Leadership areas, including identifying pragmatic solutions for tricky problems within a variety of different settings and organisations.
