Kate has recently returned to the UK after a long career in sub Saharan Africa. Kate has worked as an independent agri-business and development consultant in Africa on both short term and long-term consultancies with private sector, development agencies, financial institutions and NGOs. She has a good understanding of the macro and micro economic and social conditions that affect and frame international business development, agribusiness, private sector investment and supply chain management. Kate has worked predominantly in the sugar and tea industries in Africa and has considerable experience in the design and development of sustainable smallholder grower and contract farming mechanisms, rights-based approaches to supply chain development and responsible investment. She provides innovative practical solutions to assist companies to effectively turn commitments around social and human rights development into practice. More recently Kate has worked extensively for Illovo Sugar Africa in the field of land and human rights within the sugar sector, sharing widely the challenges faces by industry in the land sphere and through developing and implementing programs on the ground to address company and community land tenure and human rights along the supply chain. Kate has strong project development, implementation and management skills for both private sector and donor clients.

Kate is recognized as a leading voice in private sector agriculture development particularly in representing the viewpoint of agribusinesses and farmers and developing practical solutions to build sustainability and optimize outputs.
