About Katie

My mission is to help leaders with purpose rediscover their zest for creating a better world. Through my coaching and training, I help them to be more effective and enjoy – yep, even love – their work. Like I do!

I know how lucky I am. I spent over 20 years in the non-profit sector in national and international charities and found it hugely enjoyable, if at times, frustrating!

Then, at a workshop to explore how I might use new coaching skills, I had a light-bulb moment. I realised that supporting others on the front line of creating a better world was the best way I could contribute. I stayed up all night scribbling a plan and Be The Change (my old business name) was born. (You can read more about that life-changing moment here)

It’s been ten years of learning, some of it difficult, most of it exhilarating and I still absolutely love what I do. Among the many clients I’ve worked with are the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, FareShare, the BBC, the Child Poverty Action Group and the TUC. I’ve worked with 100s of people striving for a better world and seen their working lives transform and their contribution multiply.

Does this make sense to you?

I’d love to work with you. Get a feel for my unique approach by taking a look at my blog.

“I was looking for a coach to give me guidance and direction with my new leadership role. Katie exceeded my expectations. She helped me discover the kind of leader I really wanted to be, gave me suggestions for tools to help me get there and whenever I felt stuck, she had a creative response that helped me move forward. She’s also incredibly warm and fun to work with.”
