Kate Robertson


Euro RSCG Group

Chairman of the Euro RSCG Group since 2006, Kate has been in the advertising industry for 26 years. Working mainly in global roles, Kate became convinced of the importance of the roles of global institutions and global businesses in the certainty that what unites people is greater than geographical distance and national distinctions.

Having grown up in apartheid South Africa, Kate's world view is defined by having witnessed the creation of its new way of life. Awed by the leadership of Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Kate believes that the shared humanity of people makes every good thing possible. One Young World is her idea. Inspired by Kate's love for the Olympic movement and its values. One Young World should, in Kate's vision, give young people a chance to meet their counterparts from every country in the world and resolve to make the world a better place.
