Meet our conference speakers: Katharine Horler

The 2019 edition of our annual conference will take place at the Business Design Centre in London on 21 November, and will focus on Leading Outside the Ordinary. The full programme is available on the website, and in this blog series, you will get the know our speakers a little bit better.

Katharine Horler is the chief executive of Adviza. At the conference, she will talk about leading through personal trauma.

What’s your favourite thing about working in the social sector?

The people – both the people that our charity exists to support and the wonderful staff that we employ.

What does leading outside the ordinary mean to you?

Being prepared to consider new and different ways of doing things, not being afraid of change or challenge.  Developing the resilience to cope with whatever is thrown at me.

What’s the best professional advice you’ve been given?

Be yourself.

What’s your favourite thing to do for your own well being?

Get outside, it gives a different perspective and it’s good to be reminded of all the other things going on in the world.

Why do you think it’s important to attend networking events?

To learn and meet interesting people.
