Nowadays, the Decoded also helps those who want to learn about cyber security, innovation, and artificial intelligence.

    Besides focusing on expanding and scaling the company, Kathryn is a frequent keynote speaker and promotes coding on curriculums and gender diversity in IT. Women in technology, artificial intelligence, entrepreneurship, and the future of the digital economy are among her areas of expertise. Kathryn was a core member of the successful effort to have code added as a compulsory topic in the UK national curriculum in 2014.
