"Katie presented to our members on Thursday 27th November 2014 and immediately demonstrated the natural traits only shown by a few professional 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 the global stage if yesterday is anything to go by. Thanks for yesterday Katie, you were sensational.’
“This is the second year running we’ve worked with Katie on the National Fitness Conference and Awards and once again it was a pleasure.
We’ve had some great feedback from delegates about her conference presentation and many people attending the awards’ evening said it was the best NFAs yet!
We always really enjoy working with Katie and look forward to doing so again in the future."
