Public Speaking

I am frequently invited to speak on national radio and television in Ireland and also at wellness conferences and workshops in Europe, including the annual Women in Agriculture Conference, Savour Kilkenny Food Festival, Wellness and Literary Festivals in Ireland and the UK, amongst other workshops and events.

With my multi disciplinary professional expertise and many years experience in health and wellness, I am both qualified and proficient to speak on a wide range of lifestyle issues from women’s health (most especially menopause and skincare issues) and nutrition in its many guises, to overall wellbeing, mental health and body image issues.


Through workshops and engaging discussion, I want to create a nurturing space to help women connect to their mind, body and soul so they can become less self critical and gain compassion and confidence. Workshops and panel discussions can also be arranged around the selected below topics or other wellness issues that might be of interest. Please contact me to discuss further. I am always happy to create a bespoke workshop based on your needs.

I greatly admire the rigour of Kate’s work which, to me, is an extension of her training as both a journalist and scientist. Her objective approach mixed with her distinctive writing style is the voice that the beauty/wellness industry badly needs. When she gives her opinion…I listen.'

Our Middle Years

Often pride and nostalgia for our younger days get in the way of us embracing our later years. Alluding to my book ‘Your Middle Years’ I discuss how through nourishing both body and mind through nutrition, movement and self care, we can truly embrace midlife wiser and more confident both in and about ourselves.

Skincare is a true passion of mine. Combining my scientific background and cosmetic science training with decades of research in global spas and countless tried-and-tested reviews on the best organic, natural, cosmeceutical and holistic skincare methods, I am happy to speak on finding the best skincare products for your age and skin type. Topics of discussion could include: skincare through the decades, skincare during the teenage years, motherhood, menopause and beyond, feeding your skin from the inside, natural vs cosmeceutical skincare, how to find the purest natural skin oils and what to look for when buying skincare.

Perfect Imperfection

Part of embracing our middle years is accepting that our flaws are what make us unique.

Topics of discussion could include; managing your mental health; how to achieve wellness @ work; Living your best life.
