When Cathy Slater started her own building design firm from her parent’s home in 1980, the quietly spoken 23-year-old had no idea that ‘Plan 2000’ would grow to become the full service, award-winning architectural practice it is today. She had not even considered her business future post 2000 let alone imagined that she would undertake years of study to become a registered architect in her forty’s, employ up to sixteen staff at one time and design some of the Central Coast’s most classic homes and medium density developments. An advocate for best practice in the Australian architectural industry and a successful businesswoman in a male-dominated profession, Cathy is an inspiration, not only to women in traditionally male fields, but to all those who dare to take a leap of faith and start a business from scratch.
