Kath Wood is a pleasure to work with, highly capable and always focused on achieving agreed outcomes. We have worked with Kath twice, asking her to take up senior interim roles at Kettle’s Yard. This has required Kath to get up to speed with each role very quickly, and just as importantly, work closely alongside other team members. Drawing on her long experience in the arts and her skill at working collaboratively at every level, Kath was excellent on both occasions.
