On the 11th of May, uncluttered white spaces will be hosting IF SYDNEY | THE FUTURE OF MEDIA. Our 3rd Innovation Forum (IF) and our first on a subject specific to Innovation in Media.

To add to the already extensive panel of experts(Galvin Scott Davis, Pip Jamieson, Ian Lyons, Richard Bradley, Johannes Weissenbaeck and David Gillespie), Kate Kendall will be joining the panel.

Kate is the Digital Director at the Melbourne-based publishing company Niche Media, which publishes titles such as Australian Macworld, Marketing, Desktop, Architectural Review Australia to name a few. Kate is responsible for developing the online portfolio of websites.

Kate started at Niche as the online editor and feature writer for Marketingmagazine and Marketingmag.com.au, writing cover stories on brands like Google, L’Oréal and Microsoft.

Prior to Niche, Kate worked in a mixture of editorial, marketing and comms roles in the magazine and retail industries.

Kate founded and organises the Social Media Melbourne, or @socialmelb, meetup, which involves regular, open, unstructured and social gatherings of passionate and inspirational Melburnians who have one thing in common: social media. The group allows individuals to collaborate, facilitate discussion across industry, share ideas, transfer knowledge and extend relationships offline.
