Katie asked me to give some feedback about our webinar yesterday, so I asked our diversity forum today and these are just some of the words/comments given: incredible, moving, inspirational, enlightening, empowering, lighthearted, relaxed, I learned a lot, I felt comfortable to ask any question such a great talk and super fascinating.  You have made lots of new friends here at PPL PRS and we hope you will visit us again soon… perhaps in person next time – Covid permitting! 👍


Louisa Starling

Strategic HR Business Partner at PPL PRS Ltd

A huge thank you to Katie Neeves for hosting her session this afternoon (virtually) at Biffa.

It was a fantastic way to educate us on how to be an ally for the Trans community and to be able to ask questions in a safe space about her experience.

We also got to hear about how we can actively make our friends, family, colleagues and everyone in between feel valued and accepted and ask anything else that we were curious about.

Thank you for joining us Katie – it was such an insightful hour and a half that really flew by!

I would absolutely recommend any business to get Katie on board. She delivered her message with use of humour, anecdotes and relatable situations and the delivery was spot on!

Thank you for sharing your story with the colleagues at BGL Group, you’re so inspiring! We wanted to work with you to help educate and empower individuals and you did just that. The feedback from our colleagues was amazing. In the hour long session, you made such an impact and even brought some humour too. Thank you so much. Would highly recommend.


Emily Taylor

CSR Manager at BGL Group

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.


Pippa Hawker-Bond

Global Talent Partner for Harvey Nash Group

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.


Anna Midgley

Homeless Health Coordination Project Coordinator, Groundswell

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!


Kay Makin

Head of People at Integrated Service Solutions Ltd

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.


Anna Brent

Executive Producer & Head of DEI at Across the Pond

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!

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.
