Say Hello to Kate!

by | Aug 11, 2021

HelloInfo is proud and excited to announce that we have a new team member joining us.

Kate McGillivray, a seasoned strategic intelligence professional, is joining HelloInfo as a Senior Consultant.  

Kate has extensive experience in the industry, with 5+ years of research and project management success. She is passionate about supporting clients, conducting secondary and primary research, and providing clients with insight to support strategic decision making. Kate is especially passionate about projects in the Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare, Technology, and Foodservice sectors, and is interested in growing HelloInfo’s offering for government and non-profits, as well as bringing our focus group methodologies in-house.  

We are confident that Kate will bring a new, exciting perspective to the HelloInfo team, and we are very enthusiastic to have her join us on our mission to provide our clients with approachable intelligence. In this post, Kate answers a few questions about herself and her work.  

Q: What do you love about your job? 

I love many things about my job! I love that every day/week/month is completely different. Strategic research keeps me on my toes and forces me to flex my creative problem-solving skills. I also find it very satisfying to take a wall of text and turn it into a data visual that is both insightful and aesthetically pleasing.  

Finally, I love that I work with a team that challenges and supports me personally and professionally. I am grateful to be part of the HelloInfo team! 

Q: What are your favorite industries to research? 

It’s hard to pick favorites…but I really enjoy projects in the Foodservice industry. There is so much innovation in drive-thru layouts, contactless ordering options and robotics! I find these topics fun to research and collaborate with clients on, due to how competitive and fast paced the space is.  

Q: Are you an early bird or a night owl? 

Early bird! I do my best thinking in the morning while drinking a cup of earl grey tea. Fun fact: I’ve never had a cup of coffee in my life, not even a Tim’s iced capp! 

Q: What email newsletters do you rely on to stay up to date? 

I tend to rotate between the Daily Skimm, The Hustle and The Globe and Mail’s Daily Update. 

Q: What’s one thing you are currently trying to make a habit? 

If a task comes up that will take less than 5 minutes to complete, do it right away. This applies to everything from dirty dishes to sending or responding to work emails! 

What are you most excited about joining the HelloInfo team? 

What excites me the most about joining the team is the opportunity to contribute to HelloInfo’s mission of approachable answers to complex questions. I believe that the best results in this industry are born out of a collaborative, partner-oriented approach to client relationships. I am excited to dig into new industries and get to know all the interesting people that HelloInfo is working with. The sky is the limit for our expanding team! 

Are you interested in having Kate help your company succeed? Reach out and book a meeting with us.
