6 of the Best – Fort Mason Games’ Kate Gorman

This week’s 6 of the Best comes from Fort Mason Games’ Founder, CEO and President Kate Gorman.

In the latest edition discover a different perspective of Disneyland, a huge US rivalry and which movie is Gorman’s most watched “hands down”.

Best Holiday

I recently went to Disneyland for the first time in 15 years. It’s such a fascinating place from a business perspective and as a consumer. The attention to detail on the holiday decor and rides was incredible. They create compelling immersive experiences from the second you step foot on the property. The joy and happiness created in the park is a great goal for all entertainment sectors – especially games.

Best Album

Double Live by Garth Brooks – It’s full of classics and seeing him still playing live recently, he’s incredibly talented. For anyone who likes country music, this is an essential.

Best Sporting Experience

The Cal-Stanford rivalry is very strong in Northern California. I played Volleyball for Cal in college. My freshman year we were ranked #5 in the country and Stanford was currently ranked #4 – we played them in the “Big Spike” at Stanford and beat them for the first time in 29 years on their court. The intensity and highs of that experience are hard to match.

Best Film

Ocean’s 11 provides endless years of entertainment for me. I love heist movies. This classic is my most watched movie hands down.  

Best Book

Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us by Daniel Pink. Daniel Pink does a fantastic job of breaking down motivation and guides readers into how to create environments to motivate yourself and others around you – through 3 principles: Mastery, Autonomy, and Purpose.  This paradigm resonates deeply with me on how I am motivated, and has guided my management style and company culture creation at Fort Mason Games.
