Stream Chair ‘Smarter Leadership’
Kathryn is Director of Programme and Project Controls for Cavendish Nuclear where she leads a functional community of over 200 project professionals. She is responsible for developing the people, providing governance, and leading positive change initiatives to ensure Cavendish Nuclear delivers on its promise of innovating to make nuclear, safer, faster at lower cost.
From an early career in manufacturing Kathryn has 15+ years of project delivery experience of operating in customer focussed environments across a number of companies, which has seen her setting up production lines in the Far East, leading carbon capture studies to explore new ways we manage our pollution streams and delivering capital investment programmes on nuclear operational sites.
Of her own leadership style Kathryn says she looks to bring a personable approach engaging with and providing energy, drive and focus to the team and adopting appropriate leadership styles based on the situation to ensure the team achieves results.
“I am always looking to understand how to be a better leader through observing how others lead and what skills my team and I can develop to help us to become the best version of ourselves and achieve successful outcomes.”
