WHERE WE CAME FROM
How We Started
As a mother of two Kate experienced first hand the need for taking action to educate, connect and protect her family as they gained more and more access to the digital world. After sitting through a few very scary talks on the subject, but not finding any practical advice, she set out to bring together tips and resources for parents like her that needed help.
Along the way she met Josh, an educator with a passion for digital wellness born out of his need to repair his own poor relationship with digital media. Kate arranged for Josh to present a series of talks and workshops in children’s school, and following the talks success Kate and Josh decided to formalise their partnership and launched Be in Touch.
Where Are We Going
We love technology AND our children but sometimes we wish they didn’t go quite so well together. Like you, we are trying to figure out how to balance our children’s tech world with their health, safety and sanity – and ours!
Family Digital Wellness can feel overwhelming, so we are sharing as we go – simple, practical solutions to help you on this journey.
We get parents and children thinking and talking about the device use 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 and products will make sure you and your children are educated, connected and protected in the digital world.
We are all about simplifying the complicated world of digital wellness with practical tips, resources and products. To keep offering solutions that our parents and children really need, our work is driven by the search enquiries we receive every day.
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.

What our customer say about us
Be in Touch is an absolute invaluable initiative and resource for parents and their children, and even for grandparents like myself, as we navigate this ever growing digital landscape. The digital connected world has such incredible value, but also many challenges, as not only we are being exposed to very powerful negative agendas over the web, but also the danger of devices being the new addiction. Josh and team, thanks so much for coming form a deep values-based motivation to support us in this way.

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.
