"Unapologetic marketing truth-teller..."


We were so lucky to have Katie — our audience loved her! Her talk was inspiring and funny (a perfect combination). She’s an all-around rockstar.

Katie nailed it.
Best speaker of the show. Entertaining and informative.
My favorite speaker at INBOUND.
Just the right amount of funny and serious. Katie took a complex subject and made it relatable.

Katie is best described by the pop of fireworks!

“She’s a burst of energy and colour to any speaker line-up, and I would highly recommend her for any marketing & sales event. A brilliant marketer who cuts the BS in favour of clear, usable strategies.”

Two words: hell yes!
Your talk was perfect: relevant, important and delivered flawlessly.
Funny, candid and actionable.
Fantastic speaker. Incredibly specific takeaways.
Katie opened so many eyes. Her talk was my favorite part of the show.
She over-delivered...

Katie’s presentation at our ‘Marketing to Women in the #MeToo Era’ workshop was outstanding. She over-delivered on her promise to give our attendees thoughtful and practical tools they can use to apply to their marketing programs.

Her delivery was smart, funny and entertaining. And her insights were spot-on and well-received by attendees, many of whom reached out after the event to say how inspired they were by her session.”

Energetic, memorable, engaging, captivating.

“We LOVE Katie and can't recommend her enough for your events as a speaker.

Be prepared for authenticity and passion that will leave your audience feeling moved, motivated and ready for whatever Katie may be telling them to live for or fight for within their marketing strategy.”
