Introducing the amazing Cat Wildman (@CatWildman2000), the woman who loves smashing stereotypes and challenging norms.  Her energy is incredible.

She’s a mum of 3 and an award-winning Product person who studied science to land a role as an estate agent before she found her home in Technology.  She has immersed herself into all things Diversity, Equality & Inclusion and launched a new company and app in lockdown.  I’ve admired Cat’s tenancity and drive which is why I knew she would be perfect for this podcast.

We cover so many things including
