Type Of Speaker


Our panel required deft chairing. It was a job Katie did with great aplomb, setting the context for the discussions, bringing in the speakers at the right moments for them to make useful contributions. Her experience as a broadcast journalist was certainly brought to bear, as she adeptly kept the conversation flowing, while ensuring it also remained focussed and engaging. Katie was a consummate professional, a pleasure to work with, and someone we would love to work with again in the future.
Jack Neill-Hall, The CityUK
