Katie delivered an excellent talk for the Harvey Nash Group around her own personal journey and how we can become better allies to the trans community. Her delivery was brilliant and her content was moving, insightful and informative; the feedback we have received from those who attended has been superb. I’d highly recommend engaging with Katie in any capacity.

We asked Katie to join us on IDAHOBIT day to present a Trans awareness session to a key audience, from a number of different countries. Katie shared her very powerful story with candour, searing honesty and humour. There were some really useful tips in terms of how to create strong Ally/Advocate relationships and we will absolutely be asking her back to continue our education and awareness journey. The feedback from our employees was significant, with commentary such as “inspirational, educational and poignant” If you’re looking for an interactive, powerful speaker, please don’t hesitate to work with Katie. We’re delighted we chose to and look forward to working with her in the future.

Katie ran an exceptional trans awareness session for homeless services in Westminster. Attendees reported that ‘Katie is a breath of fresh air’ and that ‘her ease and confidence in telling her story made me feel at ease’. Totally recommend Katie in her ability to bring humour and humility to such an important issue, while candidly telling her own story.

I can’t thank Katie enough for delivering an extremely insightful lunchtime session for Kent CIPD today on what it’s like to be transgender and how HR can support transgender employees. Katie is so personable and delivered the session with passion, humour and openness which was really well received by the audience. If you are looking for someone to deliver transgender training for managers and employees in your organisation I couldn’t recommend Katie enough!

We booked Katie to run two Trans Day of Visibility workshops for Virgin Media belonging networks. She was engaging, hilarious and amazing. Every bit of feedback we received from those who attended was beyond positive. I personally have never laughed and learnt so much in one hour!

Katie delivered an engaging, inspirational and educational Trans Awareness session for ENGIE on International Transgender Day of Visibility. She connected with the audience, telling her own personal story with humour and heart and provided a safe space for people to ask questions. There were so many wonderful comments received by employees after the event. I would highly recommend Katie as a speaker.


Jennie Pitt

Head of Diversity & Inclusion, Employee Engagement, Relations & Policy at ENGIE

Our whole team enjoyed and much appreciated Katie’s talk. From those of us who have never heard the personal story of a trans person before, to those of us with close trans friends and family. We all learnt something, and felt we had a safe space to ask questions and converse together.

I just wanted to say thank you for sharing your story with all of us today, it was brilliant.  It’s not easy to sit and talk for 45 minutes and have everyone hanging on every word, super job!

Aaron Hutchinson

Managing Director, Across the Pond

I reached out to Katie a few months ago, after following her on LinkedIn. I loved her strength, bravery and message. She was on a mission to educate people. I reached out to her to find out if she would be a speaker at an event I was running. Katie did not disappoint and she captivated the audience. I cannot recommend Katie highly enough. I am a true believer of the power of Allies and the importance of Diversity, Inclusion and belonging. We live in a world where our differences should be celebrated, we need to support each other and we need to be open to learn. Katie, thank you for being my friend and I am proud to be your friend and Ally.

Katie attended our International Women’s Day panel at Virgin Media yesterday and what an honour that was. An inspirational speaker with a fantastic sense of humour that really shone through. Katie has been incredibly engaged throughout all the planning and a real joy to partner with on our IWD plans. In a very short time I’ve already learnt a huge amount from Katie and I’d really encourage others to take the opportunity with Katie to learn and grow.

Katie Neeves

Trans Ambassador
I am a woman on a mission! But not just any woman and not just any mission…

Being an openly transgender woman and a trans ambassador, I am on a mission to not only show that it’s OK to be trans, but it’s actually cool to be trans too!

Through my media appearances, public speaking engagements, blog, vlog, social media, trans awareness training courses and via support groups, my aim is to reach out to trans people who may be struggling with their gender identity, to reassure them and to lead by example. I want to help educate the general public too. The more people who are educated about trans issues, the greater the acceptance and the easier it will be for trans people to live their lives in peace. Most bigotry and prejudice comes from ignorance and fear of the unknown. Education can and does save lives.
