About the Be In Touch team
WHERE WE CAME FROM
How We Started
As a mother of two, Kate experienced first–hand the need to be hands on in educating, connecting and protecting her family as they gained more and more access to the digital world. After listening to some very scary talks on the subject, she set out to find what the next practical steps should be, bringing all these tips and resources together for other like-minded parents.
Along the way she met Josh, a father and an educator with a passion for digital wellness born out of a need to repair his own poor relationship with digital media. Together they founded Be in Touch, so that no other parent need feel alone on this online parenting journey!
Where We’re Going
We love technology AND our children but sometimes we wish they didn’t go quite so well together! Like you, we’re trying to figure out how to balance our children’s tech world with their health, safety and sanity – and ours!
Online parenting can feel overwhelming, so we’re sharing as we go – simple, practical solutions to help you on this journey.
We get parents, teachers and children thinking and talking about the online challenges they have, and how they can improve their daily digital habits. We run inspiring, life-changing face-to-face or online learning experiences for children, parents and teachers. Our easy and practical solutions, tips, resources and products will make sure you and your children are educated, connected and protected.
Our mission is all about “keeping kids safer and saner online”!
WHO WE ARE
MOTHER | THINKER | VISIONARY | FOUNDER
From an interest in marine biology which broadened to “swimming with sharks” in a corporate environment as an environmental lawyer, Kate has always got involved in ventures that channel her passion for motivating others and making a difference. She has a husband who views Whatsapp as the pinnacle of social media, and so, as an almost 50-year-old mum of two tweens, keenly felt the pressure to better understand the digital world and how to manage its impact on her kids.
The concept of Be In Touch was born, out of the realisation that the intel she was gathering was needed by other like-minded parents, also doing their best to try and keep afloat in the modern age of parenting.
FATHER | EDUCATOR | LUMINARY |
Having completed a degree in psychology, philosophy, and coaching, Josh spent his twenties travelling the world working as a model, actor and later a stuntman.
He has seen first-hand the illusion of the ‘entertainment engine’ and decided to pursue purpose over profit. His broad scope of experience from working in organisational development to holding workshops for teens and tweens, means he always begins with the end in mind, and brings humour and realism to every interaction with adults and children.

Josh was amazing with our children, talking about tricky issues with poise. His warm personality let children have an immediate repore with him. This helped us get realistic results for the survey - a must for all schools who care about the digital wellbeing of their children. We are looking forward to further partnering with Be in Touch to help us guide our parents whom we hope will in turn help provide a safer online environment for their children.

Be In Touch is truly making a difference. I have worked with the team on some projects and have the greatest appreciation for the people they are and the work they do. Speaking from an Education Technology side, the value they add to the increased use of technology by learners is invaluable. Their message is clear - if you don't know what is going on in your child's online life, you don't know what is going on in your child's life.

First time to attend Be in Touch webinar on digital parenting, as a father of an 8- and 5-years old boys I was not really aware of how dangerously a digital world without control can affect my kids. I have now understood that I need to communicate with them and have agreement with gaming, as to how long and what games are safer for them. screen time is very important. I will strongly recommend any parent to follow this page for their children digital well-being.
