Kathryn what are your latest projects?
‘Right now, a lot is going on, which is exciting. I’m writing another book, developing a TV series and working on a film screenplay. I fit in speaking engagements and creative writing workshops whenever possible because I find connecting with people is like adrenalin for my soul.‘
You could just be sitting back and enjoying a life – why do you work so hard?
‘I think what drives me is that I know I am in a unique place to offer insights which can really help people in their daily lives.
My time spent in forensic medicine forming relationships with murderers, victims, police, lawyers and prisoners and their families was inspirational. It gives me incredible and unique insight into what motivates us and makes us behave the way we do. Researching and writing so many books and articles over the last few years has further deepened my understanding of human behavior.
Through speaking and in my writing I can pass this knowledge on in an engaging way so people really ‘get it’.
I love to challenge audiences to look at situations in new ways. This can help relationships bringing success in business and happiness at home.’
So you help people to stop locking horns?
‘Yes that’s right. I show people how to take a step sideways and look from another view point. As soon as they do that they can see there are other equally valid ways to see the world and they might then see a new solution to an old problem.’
