Katharine Bourke

People & Business Development

Born on a Dartmoor farm, I've always been a passionate supporter of and advocate for businesses in the South West. My career began recruiting accountants for the City, before being headhunted into a consultancy to build project teams in London and across Europe. I worked in Cambodia, then Oxford before returning to Devon in 1999. Working with my husband, we built an IT business from a good idea to a business employing 10 staff before returning to consulting in 2011. I enjoyed four years as a Growth Manager for the government's GrowthAccelerator and Business Growth Service in Devon and Cornwall and co-founded SWGS in 2016. I love living and working in the South West, and remain an advocate for talent in the region. A Zen leadership practitioner, I am certified to deliver the Focus Energy Balance Indicator (FEBI or feebee) which is a powerful psychometric tool to aid individuals and teams.
