Working in government, learning about diplomacy and how to get there is what Anny Cao and I touch upon in this video. Anny joins The Corporate Diary to talk about her impressive experiences in China, Japan and Ottawa working for Young Diplomats of Canada and the Embassy of Canada. With a Masters in Public and International Affairs from Ottawa U, Anny definitely has A LOT to share.
Watch my interview with Andrea Wood from EA Games as we discuss being a woman in the video game industry, moving all across the country to Vancouver and being debt free as a soon-to-be OttawaU graduate.
When I first thought about creating The Corporate Diary, I wanted to discuss not only my journey as a business graduate, goal setting and success but more importantly, create a platform to shed light on the women who are excelling in male dominated fields. Meagan Prins, a McGill University student and incoming Goldman Sachs investment-banking analyst, came to mind.
A billion dollar company offered me a non-paid internship after selectively deciding who deserves a salary and who does not. I am a nice girl, but you can bet I "asked". Am I an outlier in my gender? According to the Harvard Business Review's "Nice Girls Don't Ask", I unfortunately am.

HELLO my friends! I thought to spice things up and flew to London. Yep - I was like "I need to work out of the London office today" and ended up hopping on way too many flights all for you...alright, I also went for work but in any case, in this video, I share "how to do it all". I truly believe you can excel in doing many many things at once. Multitasking? Oh yes. Welcome to The Corporate Diary!
Celebrating 9 YEARS on Youtube! It's crazy how time has gone by so fast. Let's talk about the incredible journey we've been through together and here, I answer the famous question: "What is Kat Garcia up to?"
The Corporate Diary takes you to Chicago! You've been with me through my journey as an actor and singer to business student/graduate to now Management Consultant.

Speaking at Concordia University's "Managing Your Career Conference" allowed me to connect to soon to be 2017 college graduates and we laughed at the power of failure, importance of finding your superpower and excelling in the search for a dream job.
Thank you to Professor Madan at McGill University for allowing me to guest-lecture. Here is a clip from the lessons I gave to her Corporate Finance class (BCom) on an article I co-wrote for Forbes alongside Professor Karl Moore. Check it out below!
Ever wish to visit the Parliament of Canada? Justin Trudeau invites Members of Parliament to host their own youth councils and I've got you covered. I recently joined MP Will Amos' Youth Council and here I take you behind the scenes of what our first meeting was like. We got a tour, discussed our ideas, learned about the different law jurisdictions and whether they belong to the municipal, provincial or federal government.
2016 was supposedly the year of "realizing". Kylie Jenner said it. My friend said it (I won't mention your name to protect you from the embarrassment <3). Jokes aside, my new video discusses how I failed and succeeded in realizing goals this past year. What's your 2017 theme? All about that here on The Corporate Diary.
