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 Love Work. Be The Change was born. (You can read more about that life-changing moment here)

I started out coaching and running workshops, mainly at non-executive level. I loved it – but then, one morning, I was writing up my notes in a London café after a session with the CEO of a local charity. She’d been sharing how her team were so much more effective since she’d begun working with me, and I realised my true mission. It was to help reconnect senior leaders in the sector with their mission, so I could make my impact through supporting them.

That was when I made a shift to working solely with leaders.

Since then I’ve worked with many amazing leaders 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.”
