A motivational speaker, international author and inspirational presenter, Katie Piper is one of the most passionate people working on the speaking circuit.
Katie came to prominence after being the victim of a horrendous sulphuric acid attack in 2008 that left her with serious burns to her face, neck and hands, and also left her blind in one eye. Having worked as a model and TV host, Katie feared that her career may be over but just two years after the incident decided to go public with her story in a moving documentary for Channel 4, My Beautiful Face, which told of her survival and her recovery.
Receiving overwhelming support for the documentary, which went on to win a Broadcast Television Award in 2011 and was nominated for a BAFTA in 2010, Katie once again took to television hosting by initially working on a four part series, Katie: My Beautiful Friends, and then again on Katie: The Science of Seeing, in which she underwent stem cell treatment and remarkably regained her sight.
Katie has since continued to present a host of television programmes including Channel 4’s hit television show Bodyshockers, and has also written two books; her autobiography Beautiful sold millions of copies in the UK as well as being published in Asia, the US and Australia, whilst her sophomore effort, a self-help book titled Things Get Better focused on Katie’s belief in positive thinking.
A leading advocate for mental health, Katie Piper has also found the time to start The Katie Piper Foundation, which aims to improve rehabilitation facilities for burns survivors as well as support for whatever they require, both medical and non-medical.
An engaging speaker that will provide a story of heartbreak and resurrection that is guaranteed to inspire, Katie Piper is a motivational speaker whose tale is sure to resonate. She can talk about both physical and mental strength, overcoming hardship and how she refuses to be a victim. Inspiring and erudite, Katie is a fabulous presenter and a superb speaker for any event.
