Katie Pritchard

Starting at IMPACT in 2013 as an intern, Katie quickly worked her way from accounts to team lead, member of the leadership team, and eventually management. Her natural organization and focus on process led to an IMPACT Core Award for Dependability in 2015 and has made her a significant player in building many of the foundational elements that made the organization what is it today. As Director of Client Services, Katie leads the team behind IMPACT’s marketing delivery for agency clients. In this role, she’s proud to coach account executives on effective communication and maintaining tight timelines, ensure processes and best practices are both in place and followed, and enable the entire team to do their best work through efficient capacity planning. Outside of the office, Katie enjoys spending time with her crazy - but lovable - family, watching too much HGTV (Is there really such a thing?), and traveling.

7 Quick Wins For Improving Your Website Security (& Winning Trust)

By: Katie Pritchard June 8th, 2018

Blog Feature

Would you tell someone you didn’t trust your biggest secret? How about loan them money? No matter how trusting you are, I’d bet money you’d think twice about doing either of these things -- and most consumers would too. Data security, whether it be financial or otherwise, is more important now than ever. Not only are there more attempted and successful breaches as time passes, but the public is becoming more and more aware of their need to protect themselves especially when it comes to the websites they use. With GDPR now in full force, many marketers are paying increased attention to what and how they control their website privacy and security for users - especially because there can be legal (and in turn, financial) consequences. In wake of this, worldwide cybersecurity spending is expected to reach $96 billion in 2018, but, there are plenty of quick and less expensive updates you can make to your site right now to help improve your security and protect your site visitors.

9 Non-Awkward Ways to Break the Ice at INBOUND 2017 (or Any Conference!)

By: Katie Pritchard September 11th, 2017

Blog Feature

Being that I've made the trip three times, I’ve had enough experience at the INBOUND that I feel I have a few tips to share - for first timers or seasoned veterans. There are tons of articles on how to network at events, but INBOUND is so different, I feel like none of the articles I’ve read are applicable. You may not grab the business card of everyone you meet, but conferences like this are not about that. What I’m suggesting is that you stay open to meeting as many people as possible, take home some great pieces of information (a free Website Throwdown at the IMPACT booth is a great place to start), and, overall just have a great time. So, what are some real ways you can break the ice this year at INBOUND without feeling awkward, you ask?
