Kathryn Ho

Job Title:

Operations Manager

Myers-briggs Personality Type:


What does that mean?

Means I totally love systems like the Myers-Briggs ;)

It means I favour Introverted Intuition (I spend a lot of time in my head thinking and spotting patterns), backed up with Extraverted Thinking (I love metrics). I’m not a big hugger.

Typically, what does your role entail?

A little bit of everything. Knowing about what’s going on. Planning, strategising, and making sure work gets done... just a little bit of nagging.

Favourite thing about your job?

Autonomy. Being trusted to get on with it.

What do you do in your spare time?

I paint abstract landscapes. Mainly seas, skies, clouds, that sort of thing. I’m also getting into Instagram and learning what it takes to come across as a real life human being.

I was rather into triathlon at the beginning of the year, but that’s given way to making art. I still need my exercise though – cycling and running are how I reset my mood. Also good for keeping perspective = keeping ducks. They’re awesome, if you don’t mind duck poo all over your garden.

If there’s any time left after that, I like to go away camping in an old Landrover, or army truck, depending on the occasion.

Which 3 people, dead or alive, would you invite to a dinner party?

I honestly can’t think of anyone I’d like to invite to a dinner party, apart from maybe close friends (and even then, I’d rather not have to host it).

If you had to pick a theme tune for yourself, what would it be?

The Lonely Island’s “Threw It On The Ground” – because I’m a clumsy oaf and forever knocking things onto the floor.

& finally, you walk into a bar, what drink do you order?

I’m a lightweight (thanks, genetics). A gin & tonic and a glass of tap water.

She's very modest, but outside of work, Kathryn is also an extremely talented artist - take a look at her beautiful paintings here:
