I had the pleasure of working with Katie on an online Pride event.  She’s one of the most articulate and entertaining people I have seen in this format.  Good humoured, well educated and a consummate professional. I would happily work with Katie again and sincerely hope we will. She’s very talented and I could see her presenting a talk show on a major TV channel.


Natalie Bowen

Vice Chairperson, Rhondda Pride

Having taken part in one of Katie’s trans awareness sessions I can highly recommend her approach to the training she offers with both humour and honesty. I thought I had a good understanding of the subject however I learnt so much more during the session which I would certainly say has opened my eyes even more in terms of why we all need a deeper understanding in the arena of diversity in the workplace & the world around us.


Andrea Yorston

Design & Product Consultant

I’ve known Katie for a long time now but although I knew part of her story it wasn’t until I attended her Trans Awareness session that I understood the true challenges she’s faced, continues to face and some of the discrimination and hatred that she and other Trans people have to deal with. More education and awareness raising is needed and Katie is in a great place to do that. She describes herself as “gobby” but she’s just saying it as it is, with humour but also pathos and she has a true desire to make a difference. Oh, and she’s a great photographer too!


Sue Grogan

Workplace Wellbeing Consultant

Thank you for delivering a fantastic and informative Transgender training session today. I would highly recommend talking to Katie about having a work place session to enlighten and educate your team. Katie’s passion shines through.


Zoe Darkins

Clinic Director, Inside Out Laser Clinics

Truly inspiring story – the authenticity to be truly one’s self is missing from some many peoples lives and Katie’s story will certainly make you think if you are being true to yourself and making the brave decisions needed to live the life you want.


Matt Bull

Business Growth Expert

So having travelled a lot, worked for over 35 years, met and spoken to thousands of people from all sorts of cultures and backgrounds I thought I knew a lot about different peoples prospectives I was wrong Through clear, thoughtful steps Katie explained excellently the mindset of a Trans person. She explained the motivation of why she was sharing such an intimate emotion, not for glory but for education. She also assisted on how you can become a Trans Ally. Think you know Trans? Think again. A must for everyone.


David Wilkes

Director of next Steps for Business

I had been following Katie’s journey for some time, I found her story not only inspirational but her approach made me connect and really want to work with her. I love Katie’s approach, she shares her stories with warmth, wit and stacks of humour. Her story really captures the challenges she has faced. After working with Katie you will truly understand why she creates game-changing noise about Trans Rights and the role that you play as an Ally. Katie’s mission to educate and push for real change is critical, she has found the perfect way to connect with individuals and businesses. Her work will change the way people think, behave and will ultimately change the world for sure. Katie is a true professional and a beautiful person with an incredible story to tell. I look forward to working with her again in the future.

Head of External Relations for The Association of Professional Staffing Companies

Katie provided a great Trans Awareness session to colleagues from emh group last week. People are still talking about how enlightening and informative it was. She also made it personal, poignant, accessible and, characteristically for Katie, good fun!

I highly recommend Katie as a Trans Ambassador to any organisation committed to equality, diversity and inclusion – if you are interested in learning more about trans issues, and how to be an inclusive employer, a learning and development session with Katie Neeves is a great place to start. Thank you Katie!


Joanne Tilley

Executive Director Corporate Services ay emh group

Katie is a fantastic woman not to mention a true ambassador for diversity and Inclusion. Her show Cool People is excellent. I have had the pleasure of speaking with Katie a few times and each time her story, knowledge and warmth blows me away. If you are looking for Trans awareness training then I highly recommend Katie’s company Cool2BTrans wholeheartedly.


Chris Allan

Founder of Your D+I and podcast host of Diversitea

Katie has an unbelievable passion for spreading trans awareness through telling such an incredible story. She really connected with my audience using plenty of humour, treating my audience like her own. When it comes to Trans awareness, it’s nice to be able to have a space where you can learn, make mistakes and feel safe to chat about issues from all sides without stigma and in a human way. I look forward to working with her again in the future. and I know some of my clients are already planning rebooking her training.

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.
