The event which will be held in the Business and IP Centre at Leeds Central Library is part of a series of events hosted by the BIPC Network who are headquartered at the British Library.
During the session, Katrina will be elaborating on her entrepreneurial journey, from starting her career as a 15-year-old apprentice to her time at renowned design agency ATTIK, her experiences of travelling the world managing the marketing remit for iCONX, a Dublin based software company before going on to establish her own marketing agency in 2014, which now employs four members of staff.
The event will also coincide with a speaker panel event being held at the British Library in London hosting the likes of Patrick Drake, co-founder of the home delivery meal-kit service ‘Hello Fresh’ and Jessica Seaton, co-founder of clothing and homeware designer and retailer “Toast. Award winning journalist and broadcaster Nadine Dereza will moderate the event which will be live streamed to delegates in Leeds and will include a live Q&A via both a twitter feed and video link.
Prior to the event Katrina commented, ‘It is an honour to have been selected as the guest speaker at such a prestigious event out of so many local inspiring entrepreneurs. Having established KC Communications a little over 2 years ago, this is a testament to just how far we have come, and what we have achieved in such a small period of time. I am excited to be taking part and sharing an insight into my journey thus far to help inspire a future generation of entrepreneurs”.
Commenting on why Katrina was chosen to speak at this prestigious event, Dawn Lightwood, BIPC Outreach Officer at Leeds Central Library said: “Katrina has shown how a different approach to marketing solutions for clients has helped the rapid growth of KC Communications in such a short space of time, as well as providing opportunities for apprentices and graduates in the local area to enhance and retain local skills & expertise”.
