At this evening event you will be inspired by Kate Philp, our keynote speaker whose unique career and life exemplify resilience and perseverance.

Shortlisted for the Women Of The Year awards in 2014, Kate will offer us her take on CWN’s Professional Development theme: ‘Leading through uncertainty with confidence, resilience and impact’.

A special thanks goes to the Royal Bank of Canada, one of CWN’s corporate sponsors, for hosting this special event.



About Kate Philp

Major Kate Philp did front line service in Iraq and Afghanistan until a life-changing injury put a brutal end to her military career. As a focus for her rehab, Kate trekked to the South Pole as part of an expedition organised by Walking With The Wounded, the charity supporting reintegration of veterans into employment.

Her exceptional career makes her uniquely positioned to share insights on leading change, providing solutions under intense pressure and managing challenging relationships.
