We don’t stop playing because we get old. We get old because we stop playing.
– George Bernard Shaw

Katharine speaks with passion on the importance of play and care for development, not just for children but for all of us. With panache, playfulness and presence, Katharine will take the audience on a journey back to the unselfconsciousness of childhood and tease out the inner children hiding behind suits. Expect to laugh and play and move from self-consciousness through self-abandon to self-awareness and growth.

Discover the importance of emotional authenticity and how to express your emotions healthily and creatively; how to use them as signposts and as tools to create a happier, more joyful life.

Katharine shares insights into her own personal transformation; how she dared to follow her passions and live from her heart, despite the struggles and self-doubt, and how she learnt that vulnerability is one of the most powerful places we can spend time in.
