Working alongside Kate Allatt is an absolute privilege. Kate is a fantastic and generous story teller and she has one of the most inspiring personal stories I have ever heard! When Kate stands up and calmly shares her experience of recovery from locked in syndrome, you can hear a pin drop, everyone in the room is deeply touched by her courage and determination. What I really admire about Kate is that she is purposeful, aspirational  and has a fantastic sense of humour all wrapped up in one incredible woman.  She is on a mission to make a positive difference to people who are recovering from stroke and I am sure, as was the case with her recovery story, she will achieve more than anyone ever dared hope!
