Kathryn Rudd OBE
Kathryn – what an inspiration she was! I am forever grateful for so many things: that first conversation talking me through the opportunities to work for Natspec and its incredible colleges, the support she gave me when she was Chair of Natspec, the advice and expertise, always delivered with added fun and laughter. Kathryn was such an important and valued colleague and friend to me and so many others in the specialist college sector – driving us all on with incredible energy and enthusiasm. I’m so grateful to have known her and learnt so much from her. She was able to skilfully drive change and bring everyone with her – diplomatic, kind, funny, expert, caring and passionate. She has touched so many lives and has been such a positive force for good in everything she has done. Kathryn – we miss you terribly but the impact of your work and your legacy lives on.
