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.


Danielle Peel

Project Delivery Lead, Virgin Media

Katie’s session was inspiring, informative and funny. I appreciated hearing your journey. It really helped staff to understand and empathise with your highs and lows and more importantly to see transitioning people as everyday people. I am confident that the tips you shared will help to improve patient experience. I’d definitely like to work with you in the future.


Maggie Morgan-Valentine

Head of Equality, Diversity & Inclusion at North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust

We were thrilled to have a big audience attending Katie’s online event for us as part of LGBT History Month and the feedback has been fantastic. Colleagues have commented that Katie’s delivery was both down-to-earth and really inspiring. The format of Katie sharing her story followed by the tips and terminology, was a helpful combination that built understanding and gave practical take-aways or, as one person summarised “an hour and a half with Katie and that’s your education”.

Partner in the disputes practice at DLA Piper

We were delighted to have Katie as a keynote speaker at our Diversity Network INCLUSION 2020 conference. Katie is a highly effective and engaging speaker, with the ability to tell her story and deliver important insights in a warm and entertaining way – which is crucial at a virtual event. We were very pleased with the feedback received from attendees, many of whom commented that Katie’s session and personal story made a real impact on them. The audience remained engaged throughout the session, contributing productive comments and questions. I would certainly recommend Katie for other speaking engagements. She was an absolute asset to our speaker line-up and I hope to involve her in future events.

Head of Partnerships & Engagement, Transition Media

Katie did a talk at an LGBT+ youth group that I run. It was incredibly inspiring and our young people really benefited from Katie’s warmth and openness. If you are seeking a high calibre speaker on trans themes, you will be in safe hands by booking Katie. 5 star speaker. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


Daniel Browne

Chair of Warwickshire Pride

I first had the pleasure of listening to Katie’s story back in May 2020 and since then have been on several calls since learning more about her journey.  Katie tells it as it is. The great and the really not so great times in her life, all of which have shaped her into the wonderful woman she is.  Katie’s story is powerful, emotional yet truly inspiring. I have learned so much how I can support not only trans colleagues but anyone who is in our LGBTQ+ community.  I really hope I can continue to be able to work with Katie and being the best trans ally I can be for anyone needing support on their journey.


Kerry Kell

People Environment Assistant, Virgin Media

I recently interviewed Katie for my podcast.  It was a masterclass in storytelling!  She made my job really easy by sharing her story in such an interesting way; clearly understanding the questions that my audience would have at each stage and responding accordingly. Thanks Katie!

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.
