Speaking topics

As a Chartered Marker, Business Owner, Author, avid reader, wife and mother she has no shortage of things to talk about. But Katrina believes that the most compelling talks are fuelled by passion and she has 3 key topics that she is passionate about:

Marketing

Marketing is key to business success, but marketing without strategy is like building a house with no foundation. Katrina’s talks focus on marketing strategy without the complexity and jargon that is normally associated with the term. In her talks she demystifies marketing and helps attendees uncover their inner marketing genius.

Momentum

Starting a business is great but what businesses really need is Momentum. The excitement often dissipates when business owners and budding entrepreneurs realise that the road to success requires much more than simply starting a business. In her talks Katrina provides encouragement, incite and techniques to gain momentum and drive your business forward.

Motivation

Unless you can stay motivated and pressing ahead in the good times and bad it doesn’t matter how smart you are or how great your idea is. Katrina delivers powerful talks that help entrepreneurs and business leaders stay motivated, pursue purpose and build legacy.

Reviews for Katrina

Katrina led 1&1 UK’s efforts to partner with Verisign at business events to encourage and support new businesses to get online successfully. From the first time I met Katrina I was impressed with her ability to engage at all levels, her enthusiasm, confidence and knowledge of digital marketing. Katrina also presented to large audiences at these events and proved to be a natural at public speaking, generating a buzz and increasing traffic at our stand. Finally, I’d like to mention that Katrina has the vision to execute in all areas of marketing these types of events by driving social media and PR before, during and after the event to keep interest and generate leads long after the event had ended.
