Kate likes to think that she invented the Internet … but knows that wouldn’t be fair to Al Gore. Instead, she contents herself with her invention of “The Canadian”, a surprisingly refreshing cocktail containing Wild Turkey, gingerale, lemon juice and cranberry juice.
An Internet trailblazer from pre-Web days, Kate Trgovac started her digital marketing career when plain text email was the marketing tool of choice. Over her 17-year career, she has worked for several clients, including Nike, Molson, Nabisco, Procter and Gamble, Fido and Petro-Canada. In 2007, Kate founded LintBucket Media, a boutique marketing agency headquartered in Vancouver that focuses on social media, community building and co-creation between brands and their audiences.
Kate has also been a part-time lecturer in the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Information Studies. Kate writes about digital marketing and technology at her blog, My Name Is Kate . She lives in downtown Vancouver with her wife, Rosemary Rowe, a noted playwright and blogger.
