“Katie’s coaching and direction enabled SMSP UK to deliver a great event for 1,000 UK Microsoft Partners. Her early engagement enabled her to play a pivotal role in structuring the event, including interviewing, and coaching internal and external presenters. Katie’s professional on stage delivery, and her strong partnership with the production team ensured a seamless and valued event demonstrated by attendees’ above average evaluation feedback. It was a pleasure working with Katie and her engagement delivered enhanced results”
Barry Ridgway, General Manager, SMSP, Microsoft Ltd.
“This is the 4th time we have invited Katie to facilitate one of our global events. She works hard ahead of the event to ensure she understands the nature and issues of the business, and so keep the intelligent conversation going with the presenters. On the day, she was engaging, kept to timings very well, and always acted as the voice of the audience; not afraid to ask the silly but obvious questions. Katie’s easy-going personality, sense of humour and professionalism made it very easy to work with her.”
Simon Garcia , Head of Global Comms, Gazprom M &T Ltd
Having worked with Katie for several years now on large event projects at Xerox, she continues to add huge value to Xerox and our clients in delivering highly regarded events to multi-national audiences.
I particularly like Katie’s ability to challenge our thinking and the status quo and work with us to deliver ever better projects. Katie manages to always bring a sense of fun mixed with a line of serious questioning in her on-stage and interviewing techniques.
