As Champions' Keynote Speaker and Entertainment Executive, Katie Clarke has worked with some of the biggest names in the speaking industry. Boasting a wealth of skills in customer service and sales, she thrives in client-facing roles, developing relationships with thought leaders from across the globe. Katie's ability to source and recommend the perfect speakers for her clients' events, has resulted in some of Champions' most exclusive and profitable projects.
Following a Masters of Business Administration from the University of Northampton, Katie has worked as a Sales Coordinator, Office Manager and Sales Assistant, with both Cambridge Commodities and BTE Plant Sales Limited. Later moving to Champions in early 2020, she has thrived in our team of booking agents, connecting international experts with influential events worldwide.
What some may not know about Katie, is that she has an Advanced Open Water Diving Qualification, which she puts to use in her spare time. Before completing her Masters degree, she earned a BA in Zoology from Anglia Ruskin University. During this period she volunteered at Twycross Zoo, giving her the chance to work closely with animals - which resulted in Katie accidentally letting the lemurs escape! Luckily, nowadays, she works solely with keynote speakers, and not animals.
