Katrina is a London-born and bred, Brussels-based moderator and communications specialist, with a degree in French and Russian from Oxford University. As part of an eclectic career path spanning steel-trading in West Africa to business development in the post-Soviet states, she spent four years as Director and Head of Production of an award-winning broadcast PR company. Here she produced news packages for the BBC, Sky News, Channel 4, ITV, AP and Reuters, interviewing high profile figures from the arts, sport, fashion, financial and political arenas. In the early 2000s, she worked as a video producer and media trainer at a unique UK film, television, radio and theatre training facility. Delivering media and presentation training to the public and private sector, clients included BBC, Visa International, Siemens and Rolls Royce.
Since 2007 when she moved to Brussels, Katrina has moderated events covering diverse topics and policy areas. These span R&I, technology and digitisation; agriculture; aviation; environment and climate change; social affairs, human rights and development; energy, mobility and transport; fisheries and maritime affairs; and health(care). Alongside, until 2017, she managed the content design and roll-out across Europe of multimedia, multilingual communications campaigns targeting the public, and EU and national stakeholders from diverse sectors for two of Brussels’ leading communications agencies working with the EU.
