Principal speaker: Kate Philp

Walking with the Wounded participant and injured war veteran Kate Philp is the principal speaker at our event on 9th August. Drawing on her extensive experience in leadership and communication from her time in the military, as well as key lessons she has learned from dealing with a life changing injury, Kate is a keynote speaker of the highest calibre.

Joining the Army after graduating from Oxford, Kate deployed on operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, where her leadership, decision making, technical skill and adaptability were brutally tested to the full in the fast paced environment of front line operations. These deployments gave Kate valuable experience in reacting to change, providing solutions under pressure, understanding people and managing challenging relationships to ensure operational effectiveness.

An improvised explosive device (IED) put an end to her tour of Afghanistan and Kate’s injuries resulted in her electing to have her leg amputated below the knee, the first British female to lose a limb in combat. Determined to continue serving Kate focused once more on her professional ambition and gained promotion to Major alongside her peers. Persistent medical issues demanded further revision surgery and a new goal by which to re-focus her rehabilitation.

At the end of 2013 Kate trekked to the South Pole as part of an expedition organised by Walking with the Wounded. This earned her the honour of being shortlisted in the Woman of the Year awards in 2014.

Believing that the challenges we face offer the best opportunities for progress Kate refuses to be bowed by her life changing injury, instead she seizes every opportunity to seek fresh challenges, achieve new goals, maintain balance and not be afraid of failure.

Kate is an ambassador for the ABF The Soldier’s Charity and a trustee of The Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre.

Prepare to be inspired!
