SOCIAL MEDIA WINNER
Katherine is currently the Social Media Manager at Erdigroup Hotel Collection and manages the social media presence and online reputation for five hotels and their relevant sub businesses in the group’s portfolio, located across Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
On top of this she also manages We Know Melbourne an online concierge and guide to Melbourne events, insider tips and all round local knowledge hub.
Katherine is an avid personal traveller, having explored over 50 countries (and counting), her most recent trip was to the Three I’s – Iceland, Iran and Italy and she has lived in the UK, Canada, Singapore and Australia.
Katherine’s travel experience has inspired her to pursue a career in the travel industry, but also opened her eyes and served to fuel her passion for gender equality and the betterment of the lives of women in developing countries.
This passion has led her to volunteer for various non-profit organisations from One Girl, a group which raised money via various initiatives (including Do it In A Dress) to send girls in S ierra Leone to school, right through to her current project, working with Tamil Feasts, a social enterprise kitchen supporting recently settled asylum seekers through the celebration of food and culture.
