The Career Success Podcast w/ Kate Dawson OBE & Jason Connolly04 September, 2021
In this episode we speak to Kate Dawson OBE. Kate is the ultimate inventor of the onesie. Her story about her she came to invent something we have all come to know is beautiful. This is a truly inspiring story.
Kate’s career has evolved from being an NNEB nursery nurse and children’s nanny, to setting up her own nanny agency in Oxfordshire, to working with her parents creating interior décor schemes for national and regional breweries and is now the founder and director of The All-in-One Company in Northumberland.
The All-in-One Company was established in 2008 through the need to keep her daughter warm at night.
Kate created the Create Your Own Onesie. She designed the website so that you design your onesie online using the unique 3D Onesie builder, choosing from a selection of premium fabrics and add-ons.
The sensory onesie was created by working with The National Autistic Society and helps children and adults alike feel calm and secure in a non-irritating onesie that they have designed themselves.
In the first lockdown for Covid-19 in March 2020 Kate set up her Scrub Hub making PPE for the local front line workers. Kate was awarded an OBE in the 2021 Honours list for her services to Business and enterprise and for her efforts in setting up the Scrub Hub Ashington.
