Become REmarkable & 
Accelerate growth

How do you stand out in an increasingly competitive marketplace? How do you attract top talent? How do you increase profitability? 

You do something remarkable. Purpose makes brands remarkable. 


​As consumers, we're putting our dollars toward companies with aligned values. 85% of millennials in the United States would switch brands for a good cause, and 50% of growth in consumer goods went to sustainability marketed products between 2013 and 2018. 


As employees we’re looking for meaning in our careers, and the best talent is choosing to work for organizations that feed their heart as well as their bank account. 92% of millennials believe that working for an environmentally and socially responsible company is important. 


In the modern world, companies without a purpose beyond profit will be left behind. You can either be a pioneering force for good in your industry, or the disrupted.

How to harness the superpower of diversity To create an innovative culture

Diversity is one of the most vital qualities for organizations that want to lead their industries.


Research shows that diversity can promote problem-solving and innovation. Culturally and ethnically diverse companies are more likely to outperform their competitors by 33%; highly diverse teams are 13 times more likely to have engaged employees; and companies with above-average diversity have 19% higher innovation revenues.

Unfortunately, most businesses unintentionally create barriers to collaboration and stifle the innovation potential they have waiting to be unleashed across their workforce. They incentivize groupthink, and constrain the power of diversity - the superpower of their workforce.

In this keynote, Kathy will reveal how business leaders can harness the superpower of their diverse workforce to create an innovative culture.
