‘I have been running business networking events for fitness industry professionals for eight years during which time i have engaged approximately 40 speakers to present to our members.In my mind there, until yesterday, three ‘stand out’ speakers who have graced our stage,Phillip Mills, CEO of Les Mills Global, David Stalker, CEO at UK Active and Joe Townsend, Iron Man and double-amputee.
Katie presented to our members on Thursday 27th November 2014 and immediately demonstrated the natural traits only shown by a few professionals speakers/presenters. A blend of story telling,Powerful business tips and honesty made Katie’s session a joy to experience. She also used slides the way they should be used and she injected her presentation with humour without trying too hard.
I would highly recommend Katie as a speaker and i predict big things for her on global stage if yesterday is anything to go by.
Thanks for yesterday Katie, you were sensational.’

‘Katie delivered the after-dinner speech at the Sunderland Echo business awards at the Stadium of Light. Not an easy gig when you’re in front of a city’s business community – of which you are part. Katie’s talk was warm, genuine, engaging, funny but most of all inspirational and poignant. She pitched her content perfectly and was more than happy to chat to people afterwards. A pleasure to work with.’

‘I was fortunate to see Katie speak on the main stage of the Professional Speaking Associations Annual conference “MEGA” and to take part in a panel discussion. Both provided extraordinary insights into the world of an Entrepreneur in a way that was very real. The learning for anyone running a business was brilliantly communicated with the right level of humour, context and insight. I know that with just one or two of the key points I took away my business will be much stronger. I loved Katie’s style and professional approach, it’s truly inspiring. Thank you, Katie.’
