Testimonials

Educational Specialist, SHE Zimbabwe

Katy is an exceptional specialist in community development, girls' rights and gender equality. Undoubtedly one of the best minds I have come across; her passion shines through all her impactful work. Katy showed me what it is like to be a high impact player and a good team player by being humble, people smart and hungry for impact. It is because of her brilliance that I consider her my go to expert whenever I need assistance or clarity in her areas of specialisation. When I decided to write a book on girls education in Africa, she turned out to be a huge resource! I highly recommend Katy to anyone or any organization keen to make positive impact in the world.

Principal, Queen's College London

You are, I think, the most powerful advocate for young people I have ever worked with. Your values and sense of integrity are exceptional, and I have no doubt that you are going to make a very significant impact on the lives of young people for many years to come.

Professional Mentoring Client

I cannot recommend Katy highly enough. While our coaching session lasted just an hour, I felt rejuvinated, excited, calm and motivated to find my next steps. Her insight into the gender and not-for-profit field has been insightful and grounding, and her email afterwards provided further resources and care. If you're thinking of approaching Katy for some coaching, run don't walk.

Nikki Giant, Girls' Rights Specialist and Author

I love Katy's passion and enthusiasm for her work - it clearly shines through in all she does. She is a brilliant connector, networker and communicator, alongside being a natural presenter; conversational, inclusive and professional in her style and delivery. Katy truly understands the issues surrounding girls' rights and gender equality and her work is positioning her as an expert on UK girls' issues.

Katy is totally inspirational. She is passionate about empowering women. Inspiring and supporting young people is in her blood. She is never afraid to offer challenge or unsettle the status quo amongst staff or young people if it aids the purpose to make our practice more inclusive for local girls.

Katy manages me as a volunteer on the referrals team and I cannot recommend her as an employee, manager or leader enough. She leads with empathy and is incredibly adept at having tough conversations in a person-centred and gentle manner. She is organised, hard-working and thorough. Everything she produces is of the highest quality. Her passion for human rights, reproductive justice and her community are evident in both her work and speaking to her in meetings.
