Press and Events Bio:
Kate O’Neill, founder and CEO of KO Insights, is an author, speaker, strategic consultant, and “tech humanist” focused on helping humanity prepare for an increasingly tech-driven future by teaching business how to make technology that’s better for humans. Her work explores meaningful experiences — purpose-led, data-informed, relevant, and rich. Drawing on her broad background spanning technology, marketing, and language, as well as her personal experiences with overcoming loss and adversity, Kate speaks with warmth and wit at national conferences, private corporate meetings, association meetings, and other groups and events. She advises corporate and cultural leaders — whether one-on-one, in board rooms, or in convention centers — on how to take a human-centric approach to digital transformation, and consults with select corporate clients on strategies for meaningful growth. She blogs frequently for a variety of online outlets, writes a column on meaningfulness in business for The Tennessean, and is a contributor to publications such as CMO.com. Kate has been featured in CNN Money, TIME, Forbes, USA Today, and other national media. She is the author of Pixels and Place: Connecting Human Experience Across Physical and Digital Spaces, as well as an upcoming book on automation and meaningful human experiences.
In 2009, Kate launched and grew [meta]marketer, a first-of-its-kind analytics and strategy agency, significantly shaping the marketing analytics landscape in the years following. Prior to [meta]marketer, Kate’s experience included creating the first content management role at Netflix, leading cutting-edge online optimization work at Magazines.com, developing Toshiba America‘s first intranet, building the first website at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and holding leadership positions in a variety of digital content and technology start-ups.
Based in New York City, Kate currently serves on the Retail Advisory Board for “social think tank” Remodista alongside leaders of top retail brands like Coach, New York and Company, and more. Kate previously served on the executive boards of the Nashville Technology Council and the Nashville Fashion Alliance, on the advisory board to Tennessee State University‘s Business Information Systems department, as a mentor and advisor with startup accelerator Jumpstart Foundry and the Nashville Entrepreneur Center, and on several national corporate boards. In addition, Kate is a vocal and visible advocate for women in technology, entrepreneurship, and leadership — she was featured by Google in their global campaign for women in entrepreneurship.
Kate has been named a “Woman to Watch in Retail Disruption,” “Technology Entrepreneur of the Year,” “Social Media Strategist of the Year,” a “Power Leader in Technology” and a “Woman of Influence,” along with numerous other awards and recognitions.
