Women of Influence, with Kate Meade for ACE Radio.

We are on a mission to find the most incredible women. Some we will know, others are going about their daily lives. Everyone has a story.

She is a CEO, She is a volunteer, She is a TV host, She is a doctor, an educator, a scientist, a leader. She is just getting on with it. What can we learn from her, what’s her message?

Join me to celebrate incredible, inspiring women and shine a great big beacon of light on their stories. Let’s learn from the women that are paving the way for us.

I love to learn and my favourite way is through storytelling. I am curious - absolutely fascinated - with people's stories. I can’t wait to get to KNOW the person in front of me and HOW they got to be where they are today.

Where did they grow up, what gets them excited, why do they do what they do and, when it gets tough… why do they do what they do?

    47/100: KIRSTY MITCHELL: A love like the movies

    47/100: KIRSTY MITCHELL: A love like the movies

    When you are in labour, at your most vulnerable it is someone like Kirsty that you want in the room. A woman that is awe of the power and strength of what women's bodies can achieve. Kirsty is so aimed. At 35, in her words, after being straight for 35 years fell in love. This is a story of the joy and heartache of bringing life into this world and coming out in a small community. This is the story of strength and for me (Kate) admiration. To fall in love and it be like something from a movie is what we all can only hope and dream for. Kirsty found it. This story will make you smile from your soul.

Inspirational. Motivational. Story Telling.

Loving listening to these amazing and inspiring stories. So many sensational humans walk among us - love hearing there stories here. Thanks Kate x

mellow🤗 ,

You ruined this interview!!!

I came to this podcast for the interview with Amie Rohan, and to say I was appalled by the interviewer could be underestimating how poorly Amie was represented. I would go as far as to say her story was not told by her at all.. despite the host telling Amie’s background in the beginning instead of letting do this herself, she constantly spoke over her and derailed her conversation, putting words into her mouth and worst of all responding to her own questions as if she were Amie..
You could hear the confusion and probable disgust in Amies voice at times and I don’t blame her because this was a train wreck of an interview with what could have been an incredible story. You should be ashamed, and reconsider your entire technique.

llllllwwwwwwwwwww ,

Amie Rohan podcast

I listened to the Amie Rohan conversation, but this was carried by Amie and not the host. Amie speaks eloquently about a difficult topic and is very relatable. However, the host needs to do more homework on her guests and use more tact. I agree with a previous reviewer that she needs to be more sensitive in her interviews.
