Care about your audience?

THEN GIVE THEM MORE THAN #INSPIRATION
AND #MOTIVATION THAT ONLY LASTS A FEW HOURS.

You’re organising an event and need a speaker
that can awe your audience.

Problem is, now more than ever before, speakers must instantly
engage their crowd and (let’s just be honest here) keep them awake
for more than 5 minutes, a difficult task in the #swipeleft digital era.

This is where I can help your event

In each of my presentations, workshops and talks, I use a combination of knowledge and experience to transform people’s lives.

I always aim to deliver audiences actionable, long-term advice in a passionate and engaging way (often with a few bad jokes thrown in). I’ll energise your audience by taking them on a roller-coaster of thoughts, emotions and feelings. I can guarantee when I’m finished with your audience, they’ll walk away with a new perspective to live a happier, healthier and more confident life.

Relatable & Approachable

The only way to help
change people’s lives is to
form a bond.
Connection, therefore, is my first
priority.

Customised for your audience

Need a specialised approach? I have you covered.

Realistic, evidence-based tools

I know how hard it is to change, I went through it myself! Therefore I always aim to provide solutions that are realistic and practical. No false promises here!

A few audiences have been…

I can help you create an event
that people thank you for.

Hiring a speaker is stressful! But let me put your mind at ease.

Before any event, you and I will have an in-depth conversation so I can help you figure out exactly what your group is looking for. After that, you can leave the rest to me knowing I’ll deliver the goods (albeit with some bad jokes thrown in).

Katherine’s authenticity resonates with every audience, giving insight into her academic journey, business success (and failures), giving the perfect amount of instruction and engagement of the audience. I would recommend her to any group!

Josh van Kampen

Alumni Relations Officer, The University of Western Australia

Your speech was warm, funny, relatable, personal – all the things we asked from you and more. There was genuine caring in what you said and a desire, not only to provide meaningful insight, but also to help.  Thank you, thank you, thank you:  from the University, from the Graduations team and, most importantly, from our newest grads who would no doubt be raving about how awesome you all are. First and foremost to me, you are a true UWA leader and I am incredibly grateful for everything you do to make our community better, stronger, more significant. It is, as always, a tremendous pleasure and privilege to work with you.

We all need a dose of Katherine in our lives.

Rebecca Johnson

CEO, Type 1 Diabetes Family Centre

We host an annual networking & fundraiser event for 50+ people, we were lucky enough to get Dr Katherine along as our guest speaker … she was a real hit! We got a lot of great feedback and some of the guests were asking how to get in touch with her for their events. Dr Katherine is fun, informative, entertaining and manages to interact and engage with the crowd to keep them all involved and enjoying themselves. I highly recommend Dr Katherine as a speaker at your next event.

Katherine spoke at our Business Event to a crowd of over 100 influential business women. She captivated the room with her raw and inspiring story. It is rare to have a speaker that engages the whole room to the degree She did. We look forward to working again with Katherine in the future”

Nikki Milne

Director, The Perth Collective PR

We were so blessed to have Dr Kat at our event! She is a breath of fresh air, she gave us all that “Ah huh” moment and made us feel like we were not alone. Her stories and analogies are like a romantic comedy, one minute you’re laughing, the next you’re crying, and you’re left feeling so positive and hopeful for the future! The vibe she brings is magic, you can’t top having Dr Kat as your guest speaker.

Lauren Calvin

Dr Katherine was a guest speaker at our Love Yourself event, speaking to an audience of over 50 women. She is an articulate storyteller and engaging speaker, captivating the crowd with her delightful humour, well delivered concepts and scientific based health advice. Dr Kat has this fabulous aura about her that had the women engrossed in her every word, leaving them feeling uplifted and inspired. I would highly recommend Dr Katherine at your next event. She is an excellent speaker, that alone is hard to find.

Confidence building 101: how to stand out from the crowd and ignite positivity

How would your life change if you had more confidence?

Simply asking this simple question can ignite change in itself. It surfaces the thought: why are you waiting for tomorrow for what you could do today? What is preventing you from putting your hand up, asking the question, making the first move, or starting something you’ve always wanted to do?

In this life-changing talk, Dr Katherine takes the audience on a thought-provoking roller coaster ride to nudge them towards a decision they won’t regret: taking responsibility for the life they live.

Manage Stress (without chocolate & wine)

You’re stressed to the nines. Your friends tell you to meditate, but you barely have time to brush your teeth let alone “be one” with your thoughts.

You wake up in the morning with coffee and turn yourself off at night with a wine while double-tapping all the zen-like photos on the Gram.

Yes, you know you need to get a hold of your high-wired mindset, but every solution you try lasts as long as deodorant in the desert.

Does work-life balance really exist?

In this humourous and action-filled talk, Dr Katherine strips down the #bs of life and provides targeted solutions to manage stress in the real world.

The Pursuit of Perfection: Life’s Dangerous Game

From an extremely young age, women (and men) around the world are blinded by the belief that they will be valued based on their appearance, and if they don’t mirror society’s blue-print of ‘beauty’, they need to change.

This pursuit of perfection is arguably life’s most dangerous game, leaving millions feeling unworthy in their own skin.

In this relevant and highly relatable talk, Dr Katherine helps people understands what it is that makes us different, makes us beautiful.

Taming your Internal Moody B!tch & Inner Bully

Whether at work, at home or on the road, we all have lost the plot over something trivial. Not only does this not accomplish anything, but leaves us  facepalming over our psycho-side for hours afterwards.

Anger, frustration and disappointment are all important emotions that we simply cannot de-program from our genetics, so how can we learn to manage them with grace and tact?

In this eye-opening talk, Dr Katherine helps the audience undercover the ‘why’ behind their bitter behaviours and provides practical solutions to curb the craziness for happier outcomes and kinder self-talk.

Seven (easy) Steps to Forever Health & Happiness

It’s Monday, another new start where we drink the kale smoothies and hit the gym… hard. By Tuesday we’re back to where we started: triple shot cappuccino and a sugar-filled muffin to get us through the day.

Why does this happen? Yes, what we eat and drink and how much we move is important to our overall health, of course it is. But our approach to it doesn’t need to be militant.

In her most requested keynote talk, Dr Katherine uses her evidence-based Forever Approach to help people change their health and happiness for the long haul, whereas existing programs only deal with the now.

Weight Management: How to Have your Cake and Eat It Too

Can you lose weight while eating cake? Absolutely! But how, you ask!

While genetics play a huge role in our body’s shape and size, research has conclusively shown that restrictive diets and militant exercise only do one thing: fast track you to failure.

In this easy to understand (and apply!), science-based talk (with a twist), Dr Katherine helps people understand the basics of human physiology so they can create a long-term program for health that is a joy to follow.

TheBusiness of Confidence: How to Lead with Purpose, Not Ego

At only 23 years of age, Dr Katherine went bankrupt for a quarter million dollars. By her mid-thirties, she sold her soul in an attempt to peddle my business. It failed miserably.

As confident as she was on the outside, she was still the same girl she always was on the inside: riddled with self-doubt and fear.

In this hit-home, inspiring talk, Dr Katherine helps people understand that you can’t sell something you don’t believe in, and if you don’t believe in yourself, you won’t get anywhere.
