Find out more about the writer behind The Cambridge Phenomenon

Posted 15th July 2011 by Sue Keogh

Kate Kirk has been a freelance editor and writer for more than 20 years. She has worked for international organisations, think tanks, specialist publishers and several leading European business schools.

Kate’s editing and writing career started while she was living in the Philippines. Prior to that, she worked in tourism in France and America following a degree in Biochemistry from Sussex University. While in the Philippines, Kate worked in communications for the Asian Development Bank, the International Rice Research Institute and the World Health Organization. When not working or diving, she wrote several guide books and orientation manuals, and four pantomimes, which she also directed and produced.

In preparation for moving back to Cambridge, Kate took an MSc in Public Relations with the University of Stirling. She started work for London technology PR agency Mahseer in 2001, creating campaigns for, among others, the Cambridge Enterprise Conference. When Mahseer closed their Cambridge office a few years later, Kate became a specialist editor for Woodhead Publishing and shortly afterwards completed a project for the World Bank on corporate governance.

Kate’s portfolio of clients includes the Cambridge Editorial Partnership, faculty members at Cambridge Judge Business School, INSEAD and Lorange Institute of Business Zurich, Woodhead Publishing and RAND Europe. Kate is also working on a novel with her mentor, author Jill Dawson, and is a Trustee of the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity.

My Company ANS&A (included in the outer area of the original Map) funded my University Research Group activity for 15 years until my retirement in 1998. Our equipment and intellectual property were given to the University so that activity can continue with a University building called the Schofield Centre on the High Cross Site beside the British Antarctic Survey building. As well as having experienced the Cambridge Phenomenon I have written two books. An entry on Andrew N. Schofield has now appeared in Wikipedia.
