facilitator, researcher, performer, yoga teacher, biochemist, monkey wrangler.
Kay works with individuals and teams including leaders of multinational businesses and arts organisations, homeless people, academics, charity staff and boards, actors, dancers and yoga teachers. She has developed and delivers courses on “Re-thinking Learning”, “100% you” and Conflict Resolution for VAIL (Victoria and Albert Museum Innovative Leadership programme) and Sapient Nitro’s CMTO (Chief Marketing Technology Officers) high potential leadership course, and she is a tutor and presenter (“Finding Flow in Conflict”) on the Oxford Strategic Leadership Programme at the Saïd Business School, Oxford University.
She graduated from the University of London in 1976 with a BSc in Biochemistry, and spent a year in the Max Planck Institüt fur Biophysik in Frankfurt, co-authoring 2 papers on ion transfer across the erythrocyte membrane, before making the rather unexpected move into market research and advertising.
She was a contributor and assistant producer on the BBC TV series on advertising and society, “Washes Whiter”, aired in 1990.
havemorefun 30 years ago after having been on the board of directors of 2 major London advertising agencies; Ted Bates (1986-88) and BBDO (1984-86). She strives to bring together the best of arts practice, scientific discipline and management theory to help people from different disciplines, cultures and traditions to communicate more precisely and clearly, and to bring more of themselves to their roles as leaders. Much of her work deals with the challenges of managing across borders and through periods of change, and with helping R&D departments communicate the increasingly complex science of their products with their non-science colleagues, and with their consumers.
After founding havemorefun, Kay lived in Venice, California for 2 years and studied improvisation and acting at the Beverly Hills Playhouse. She has also studied and continues to study drama and dance improvisation with a range of teachers, and has a teaching diploma from Yoga Therapy Ireland.
Kay occasionally writes, produces and performs dance theatre shows and stand-up comedy routines, writes an angry blog (beware, strong language!) and runs an improvised recipe project, Essex Road Recipes, in Islington, North London.
She speaks English well and French, Spanish and German badly.
