I have just returned from a speaking at superb diversity and inclusion event in London called “Share a Story” as part of Inclusion Week. The event was organised by the lovely Sarah Burrell of Sarah Burrell Inclusion.
The idea of the event was to get a group of diverse people together and to get them to share their amazing and inspiring stories with the audience. I was a fantastic event and I learnt so much. I did earn a new nickname though: “Kinky Katie”! Not what you think though… It came from the natural kink in my hair – honest!
All the other speakers were incredible, but I was gutted that I had to follow the brilliant Mik Scarlet. He is such a funny man as well as being a very experienced entertainer. Our stories are so very different though and the audience responded well to mine, so I think I managed to pull it off OK. These type of events are so important as it’s only by listening to other people’s stories that we will truly understand them.
