Katty Kay is lead anchor for "BBC World News America," where she covers the full gamut of American and global affairs, reporting on US elections, the White House, Congress, Wall Street, global economies and trouble spots around the world.
Kay's BBC career began in Zimbabwe in 1990 where she filed radio reports for the Africa Service of BBC World Service radio, covering such news as Zimbabwean land reform, the independence of Namibia and the fall of apartheid in South Africa.
Her exemplary reporting took her to London and later Tokyo, covering stories such as the Kobe earthquake, the gas attack on the Tokyo underground and the beginning of the Japanese economic recession. In 1996, she joined The New York Times Washington bureau until she returned to the BBC as the Washington Correspondent in 2002.
She witnessed and reported on the huge change in American policy and psyche brought on by the 9/11 attacks. One of her most vivid journalistic memories is of interviewing soldiers still visibly shaking from the attack right after a hijacked airplane flew into the Pentagon.
Kay is a frequent guest commentator on NBC’s "Meet the Press," "The Chris Matthews Show," MSNBC’s "Morning Joe" where she also frequently serves as guest co-host and others.
Kay is the co-author (along with Claire Shipman) of two New York Times bestsellers, including "The Confidence Code: The Science and Art of Self-Assurance — What Women Should Know." In it, they make the case that confidence has roots in genetic hard-wiring but also comes by choice: less people-pleasing and perfectionism and more action, risk-taking and fast failure. In their first book together, "Womenomics: Write Your Own Rules for Success," Kay and Shipman explore how women can create a professional life that meets their needs – and in the process creates more profitable companies with happier and more productive employees.
In addition to discussing today’s critical political policies, Kay delivers keynotes on how women can create professional lives that meet their needs, resulting in more profitable companies with happier employees.

Drug, Chemical & Associated Technologies Association - Sep 17 2014
Confidence! With it, we can take on the world; without it, we don’t ask for raises, request that important meeting, begin novels or take risks. In the success equation, research shows that confidence is even more critical than competence. But what is confidence and where does it come from? Are we born with it or do we acquire it? And why do women have less of it than their talents deserve? In this speech Katty Kay answers these questions and inspires audiences – weaving the latest scientific research with anecdotes from her own career and the many women she interviewed for the book. “Neurologists have isolated a ‘confidence gene,’” says Kay. “And when my own genes were tested for the book, I learned I am not genetically predisposed to being confident.” Kay’s experience is like that of so many women, even senior women, whose lack of confidence is what really holds them back from leaning in. But confidence is also art – impacted by how we choose to live with our genes. The good news – being confident is a choice. Kay’s storytelling inspires audiences to take action – to go outside their comfort zones, to try new hard things, to take risks, to be prepared to fail and to discover the secret to success.
The world is changing at lightning speed. It’s a world where many of the fastest growing economies are in Africa; where 300 million micro-bloggers challenge the supremacy of the Chinese state; and where one-third of the population of the Middle East is under thirty. It’s a world where big challenges abound. As the European financial crisis eases, the social toll of high unemployment still threatens the Eurozone. America’s economy is showing signs of resurgence, but its politicians have locked horns to impede real progress. Tension in the South China Seas raises concerns about Beijing’s regional ambitions. And from Tunis to Damascus to Cairo we are still feeling the turmoil of the post-Arab Spring Middle East. Where is it headed? Global times call for global perspective. Katty Kay draws on experience reporting from five different regions – North America, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Europe – to offer insights on where the world is heading and how it will impact you.
A seasoned moderator and interviewer, Katty Kay brings experience and poise to the stage - deftly guiding the conversation in ways that unearth valuable insights with great, and sometimes surprising, results. Katty Kay will make the most of the important panel gatherings and notable guests on the program.
At the 2013 World Economic Forum in Davos, IMF Chief Christine Lagarde called the advancement of women the greatest economic opportunity of our time. She is recognizing what Kay calls Womenomics, the extraordinary value of women in the workforce. Global studies show companies that employ more senior women make more money. Women control 83% of consumer purchases; in America they even buy more cars than men. They have more degrees and are ideally suited to the demands of our talent driven economy. But to keep them in the economy, the workplace must adapt to womens needs. Too many women in their mid-thirties hit the brick wall of kids vs. career we cannot afford to keep losing them. Kay marshals evidence from employers large and small to show how possible it is to satisfy the demands of family and career. Flexible work schedules prove to be a win-win; when companies take the clocks off the wall and choose to measure output not input, they see productivity rise by an average of 40%. What starts as talent retention becomes a profit bonus any company would be happy to have. Kay gives an inspirational boost to women and a practical guide to employers, drawing on her own juggles as the working mother of four children. It is research and experience based advice to companies looking to retain and recruit valuable female employees.
We live in a world that is changing at lightning speed. Its a world where many of the fastest growing economies are in Africa; where 300 million micro-bloggers challenge the supremacy of the Chinese state; and where one-third of the population of the Middle East is under thirty. Understanding the competing economic and political trends of this world is essential for any business or organization, anywhere. As the European financial crisis eases, the social toll of high unemployment still threatens the Eurozone. Americas economy is showing signs of resurgence, but its politicians are standing in the way of real progress. Tension in the South China Seas raises concerns about Beijings regional ambitions. And from Tunis to Damascus we are still feeling the turmoil of the post-Arab Spring Middle East. Drawing on her experiences reporting from five different continents, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Europe, Kay offers insights on where the world is heading and what the future holds.
