Katherine O’Brien is a perfectionist and draws on her common sense, quick mental ability, and high level of concentration. She enjoys the challenge of, at times, being pushed beyond her machine shorthand speed of approximately 240 words per minute.
She has gained vast knowledge and experience in her 18 years as a STENOGRAPHER. She also has excellent listening skills.
Katherine O’Brien is able to gain a feel for any proceedings and to quickly become familiar with the context and any jargon or principles emerging from the proceedings. This allows her to provide transcription of a very high standard. She has an interest in language and understands the Maori world view and the basics of te reo.
Katherine O’Brien is widely travelled and has an interest in world affairs. She particularly enjoys international conferences.
