Kate White is the award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of thirteen novels of suspense: eight Bailey Weggins mysteries, including the just released Such a Perfect Wife, and five standalone psychological thrillers, including The Secrets You Keep.
For fourteen years she served as the editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan magazine, and though she loved the job (and the Cosmo beauty closet!), she decided to leave in late 2012 to concentrate full time on being an author and speaker.
Her first mystery, Even If It Kills Her, was a Kelly Ripa Book Club pick and immediately shot to #1 on Amazon. She has since been published in countries around the world.
Like many female mystery writers, Kate fell in love with the mystery genre after reading her first Nancy Drew book, The Secret of Redgate Farm, and she’s still inspired by the cliffhanger chapter endings the series is known for.
Kate is also the editor of the acclaimed Mystery Writers of America Cookbook, a collection of recipes from the field’s top-selling authors.
In addition to writing mysteries and thrillers, Kate is the author of several best-selling career books, including most recently, The Gutsy Girl Handbook: Your Manifesto for Success, as well as I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This: How to Ask for the Money, Snag the Promotion, and Create the Career You Deserve and Why Good Girls Don’t Get Ahead but Gutsy Girls Do.

What Successful Women Leaders Do Differently
There are fabulous opportunities for women in the workplace today and yet many female executives and emerging leaders still face hurdles—external and internal. They are stymied at times by the system and but also by their own perception of themselves. As the author of several groundbreaking books on women and success, as well as the former editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan, Kate offers a keynote on success strategies geared for a female audience.
You will learn:
How to generate big, bold, game-changing ideas that will help set you apart from the pack.
How to ask for the money, promotions and opportunities you deserve
How to let go of “good-girl” tendencies that may be holding you back and unlock your inner leadership skills
How to be the unrelenting architect of your career
How to savor your success and let it enrich your personal life rather than detract from it.
Kate has spoken at women’s conferences, business luncheons, and leadership forums across the country, offering practical hard-hitting strategies for success in her often irreverent, upbeat style.
Gutsy Strategies For Building Bold Brands
In this keynote presentation, Kate teaches leaders how she ran and grew the #1 selling magazine brand in the country for 14 years. This isn’t leadership theory. These are Kate’s stories of what she actually did and the bold moves that any leader in any business can use to go to the next level—at a time when good enough won’t cut it anymore.
These are takeaway strategies that you can use immediately to improve performance and create growth.
You will learn…
How to develop big, bold, break-through concepts for your company
How to fine-tune the unique selling proposition of your business and at the same time develop “growth pony” strategies for future success
How to embrace both hard and soft data—even when it’s scary as hell–and use it to propel your business to the next level
How to build a team that will embrace change and execute it
How to drain the swamp as you slay the alligators
Kate loves working with emerging leaders and young executives, and her sense of fun and often irreverent style help drive home her lessons in business success.
