WHO WE ARE

About the Be In Touch team

OUR JOURNEY

How We Started

As a mother of two, Kate has experienced firsthand the challenges of educating, connecting and protecting her family in this digital world. She’s a “mum on a mission”, exploring, analysing and testing practical solutions to make online parenting easier and simpler, bringing all these tips and resources together for other like-minded parents.

Together with Josh, a father and an educator with a passion for digital wellness, she founded Be in Touch, so that no other parent need feel alone on this online parenting journey!

OUR PATH

Where We’re Going

We love technology AND our children – but sometimes we wish they didn’t go quite so well together! Just like you, we’re trying to figure out how to balance our children’s tech world with their health, safety and sanity – and ours!

We know that online parenting can feel overwhelming, so we’re all about sharing 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 manage and overcome them. We run inspiring, life-changing learning experiences for children, parents and teachers – think tanks, talks, webinars, movie screenings, campaigns, challenges. We shift the focus from scare-mongering to real solutions. 

Our mission is all about “keeping kids safer and saner online”!

WHO WE ARE

MOTHER | THINKER | VISIONARY | FOUNDER

Kate

so 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. With a husband who views Whatsapp as the pinnacle of social media, she shoulders the burden of keeping up with the digital world and how to manage its impact on their teens!

The concept of Be In Touch was born out of requests from other like-minded, busy parents, to share her intel as she gathered it. And so, here we are!

FATHER | EDUCATOR | LUMINARY |
FOUNDER

Josh

After a degree in psychology, philosophy, and coaching, Josh spent his twenties travelling the world working as a model, actor and later a stuntman.

He’s seen and experienced 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

  • Seems obvious but less than half of educated parents have any parental control for their children's phone / digital devices - To be considered a good parent.... this is a most basic parental requirement!

  • positive review  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.

  • I've attended a few of Josh Ramsey's webinars. I learn something new every time. It is a scary world out there and these are super useful webinars with excellent tips for keeping our children safe. The most recent takeaway for me, as parents, is to model good habits to our children.
