I was in a desperate hunt for a dynamic, talented, tech & business savvy presenter who was as comfortable in a fast paced studio environment as she was on a live event stage. Luckily, I was introduced to Kate Russell who is not only super professional, adaptable, and an incredibly engaging interviewer; she is a stand out talent behind and in front of the camera. She puts the team around her at ease and never loses her cool that makes her so approachable you will find additional opportunities to work with her…On top of all this, her social media presence (she has >30k followers on Twitter for example) ensures that she can help generate reach but also engage with other influencers. She is a generous soul who has produced great content for us and used her social presence to amplify our campaign.
