Kate Armstrong-Smith

As Co-Founder & CEO of Omelia Story Technologies, Kate makes 'storyware' and 'culture tech' for film, television and gaming and was named one of Australia's top 100 innovators by The Australian last year. Omelia has recently raised $1.2million to build a writing tool for the next generation of storytellers (making her part of the 2% of founders funded who are female in Australia!)

She is an award-winning narrative designer, creative strategist, and technologist focusing on future formats.

Her hands-on experience and production credits span over 15 years, including ABC, Sydney Festival, Universal Music, TEDxSydney, Belvoir Theatre and Amazon Studios.

Her time as a designer on award-winning audience development schemes and her Churchill Fellowship (on connecting new formats to new audiences) has also fueled her passion for connecting with the unique needs of young audiences and how their tastes are changing content production.
