Dr Cath Bishop

Expert Leadership Keynote Speaker, World Champion Rower & Part Of The 'Will It Make The Boat Go Faster' Team

Cath works as a leadership speaker and consultant, drawing on her practical experience from two high pressure careers as an Olympic rower and a senior diplomat specialising in conflict stabilisation. She leads seminars on topics including resilience, leadership, high performing teams, peak performance and dealing with pressure.

In her rowing career, Cath competed at three Olympic Games, Atlanta, Sydney and Athens, with highlights including winning the World Championships in 2003 and an Olympic silver medal in 2004. As a diplomat specialising in conflict issues, Cath was posted to Sarajevo, Bosnia and Basra, Iraq, as well as leading in Whitehall on the UK civilian contribution to conflicts around the world.

Drawing on her unique combination of experience, Cath understands the resilience and leadership required to manage complex challenges. Both rowing and international diplomacy offer relevant analogies for the interdependency and collaboration that is essential to business success, and with her experience at the top end of both fields, Cath has also developed practical strategies for getting both individuals and teams to focus on delivering exceptional results under the toughest of circumstances.
