Katie Neeves

Katie Neeves is a woman on a mission – but not just any woman and not just any mission! She lived for 48 years as a man while struggling with her gender from the age of 3 and hiding her big secret to the World.

She was thrown into turmoil when her gender dysphoria increased dramatically, causing her to go on a voyage of discovery before finally admitting to herself that she is a transgender woman and that she needed to change her body.

Katie Neeves is an in-demand public speaker, trainer and campaigner for the trans community.

“The trans awareness workshop with Katie made a lasting impact and impression on the team. Many have said that it was the most exciting training in years. They said that they had thought about it a lot afterwards and would like a follow-up for further discussion. I would 100% recommend Katie to others.”

Katrin Terwiel, Vice President Diversity & Global Talent, Deutsche Telekom

“Katie is a phenomenal speaker and trainer. She creates a safe space for open dialogue and learning as she blends thought-provoking content with humour and warmth. Katie uses her personal story with such generosity and openness it’s impossible not to feel totally engaged – which creates such rich conversation and teases people out of their shells to ask questions. A three hour session flew by!”

Jamie Scotto, People & Culture Advisor – HR at UnLtd

“We booked Katie to run two Trans Day of Visibility workshops for Virgin Media belonging networks. She was engaging, hilarious and amazing. Every bit of feedback we received from those who attended was beyond positive. I personally have never laughed and learnt so much in one hour!”

Chloe Rainford, Mobile Trading & Online Sales Graduate at Virgin Media O2

“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

“Katie has been a joy to work with for our session at Aviva. Katie talked to us about her own transition along with tips on good allyship. The session was really well received and we had lots of good questions and feedback. Katie’s sessions are filled with lovely humour making the audience feel at ease. I would love Aviva to work with Katie again and I can’t recommend her sessions highly enough. Thanks again Katie”

“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.”

“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

“I just wanted to drop you a message to say how much I enjoyed your webinar on Friday , really insightful and also your sense of humour kept it so engaging. Will def check out your company to see if we can do any work together in the future. Thanks Katie for me it was the most interesting webinar so far and definitely the funniest”

Emma Buckley

“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.”

Jo Major, Head of External Relations for The Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo).

“Inspirational storytelling at its best. I was lucky enough to listen to Katie’s story and can openly and honestly say it was incredible to hear. I can honestly say it was eye opening, informative and inspirational to say the least. What a journey you’ve had Katie. Thank you for sharing it.”
