MORE ABOUT ME
AND MY PARTNERS
It never fails to amaze me what is possible when smart and ambitious people put their minds to it.
I'm passionate about bringing out the best in people and helping others unlock their potential. I love what I do and it's my privilege to hear your stories and help you on your journey.
I feel excited every time I come across a business that believes success comes from its people. I love finding out more about people and organisations - how they work, what makes them tick, what makes them unique.
Katie is an accredited coach and experienced leadership practitioner.
From 2003-2016 Katie was a partner at iris worldwide, a creative marketing agency network, which in that time grew from 30 to 1,000 employees across 13 countries. Katie gained first hand experience of building a business across multiple sites, with rapid growth and change a constant.
Katie became Global Head of People, supporting the executive team to reframe iris's people strategy and create a culture where employees took responsibility for their own careers, and where meaningful career conversations could happen at every level.
Katie set up Future Me in 2017.

IN COLLABORATION WITH:

The combination of our leadership experiences from the military and creative industries, and shared coaching principles, bring a depth of offering from inspirational self-leadership to practical organisational change.

Drawing on her leadership experience from military service, and key lessons learned from dealing with a life-changing injury, Kate applies her drive and enthusiasm for personal development to help people and organisations realise their potential.
A Major in the Royal Artillery, Kate deployed on operations in Iraq and Afghanistan where her leadership, decision-making, technical skill and adaptability were tested in front-line operations. Kate gained valuable experience in reacting to change, providing solutions under pressure, and knowing your people.
An explosive device put an end to her tour of Afghanistan and Kate's injuries resulted in her electing to have her leg amputated below the knee. Kate trekked to the South Pole with Walking With The Wounded. This earned her the honour of being shortlisted in the Women Of The Year awards in 2014.
