Keynote Speaker - Kate Campbell from HGTV
Kate was raised in Georgetown, Ontario and has a passion for adventure and travel. She found her passion for carpentry after taking a skills course for women. She is a strong advocate for women in the skilled trades.
Kate's television career started at Holmes on Homes, where she worked on and off camera as an apprentice carpenter. Her jump to the outdoors was a result of a job offer from Paul Lafrance of Deck Wars, Decked Out, Disaster Decks and Custom Built.
Since joining Lafrance team, she has quickly become part of the family, and has no problem putting up with the boys and their shenanigans. Kate has been featured on HGTV's Home To Win, Isle of Bryan and coming up, she and her husband Dave Coleman will be guest contractor on a new HGTV series coming in 2020.
Kate has founded her own scholarship program for women in the trades called Build Women Up. She and Dave are currently buying, renovating and selling homes throughout the Durham region.
Kate is the real deal when it comes to an authentic voice for women in the skilled trades. She lives the experience every day, on and off camera.
