Ep.18 Kate Hardcastle MBE (aka the customer whisperer)

About this podcast

Welcome back to another dose of inspiration and this weeks’ guest has such a long list of achievements that it’s hard to know where to start. This week we have the pleasure of talking with the go to television expert on consumer and retail, Kate Hardcastle MBE, otherwise known as the customer whisperer.  

We find out what drives Kate in business, where here passion to give back through her business and all her charity work comes from. Her love for music and singing with ForFunkSakeBand and all the great work Kate does with the Positive Image charity. 


Favourite song that motivates you? That's just too hard to choose as I love so many different genres of music from Stevie Wonder to musicals.

So I chose to add Stevie Wonder - 'I Wish' for Kate as I'm a huge Stevie fan too.

A book that’s inspired you? Anything by Michael Gladwell (Blink, The Power of Thinking, Talking to Strangers, David & Goliath).

Who inspires you? My children, everything you do is for them, I want to do my part to make the world better for them. I am inspired by people that want to collaborate with others. “I prefer to build bridges not thrones”. Love this quote from Kate to finish on.
