Katie McConochie

Katie is a highly experienced leader, trainer, facilitator and coach focusing on the people side of change. Her philosophy is that, by helping individual colleagues to be at their best, high performing teams will grow and organisations will reap the rewards.

‘I would recommend Katie without hesitation to any organisation which needs a passionate & capable leading change agent who gets things done!’

Graham Ryan – Partner and COO, CGA Customer Experience

‘You have consistently created real advocates for our culture transformation programme wherever you have gone. The accountability workshop you developed and delivered received by far the most positive feedback from the leadership team. It was an outstanding, subtle and nuanced session which was incredibly relatable across the board and has been repeated many times across the organisation.’

Jo Franco-Wheeler – Director Organisational Development and Diversity, Inmarsat
