  • "Katty was absolutely fantastic. The attendees loved her. Her comments couldn’t have been more well suited for our audience. She’s a very personable person which makes hosting so much easier. I am so glad that we were able to do this."

  • "I can’t begin to describe how well Katty connected with our audience. With her recent book, “Womenomics”, it was obvious she knows the concerns and problems of women in the corporate world and their impact in the marketplace. We had several compliments about this session, especially from men. Having said all that, perhaps her most important attribute is her genuineness. She was perfect for our program and our audience. I would not be hesitant to recommend her to any organization."

Katty Kay

LEAD ANCHOR OF BBC WORLD NEWS AMERICA; CO-AUTHOR OF "WOMENOMICS" AND "THE CONFIDENCE CODE"
Kay is the lead anchor for BBC World News America. Prior to taking over as lead anchor, Kay served as the Washington Correspondent for BBC since 2002.

From Washington, Kay covers the full gamut of American and global affairs – reporting on U.S. elections, the White House, Congress, Wall Street, global economies and world trouble spots. Kay also witnessed and reported on the huge change in American policy and psyche brought on by the attacks of September 11. Kay was at the Pentagon just 20 minutes after a hijacked airplane flew into the building – one of her most vivid journalistic memories is of interviewing soldiers still visibly shaking from the attack.

Kay is a frequent guest commentator on NBC's Meet the Press and MSNBC's Morning Joe where she also frequently serves as guest co-host.

Katty Kay is co-author (with Claire Shipman) of two New York Times bestsellers. The latest is The Confidence Code: The Science and Art of Self-Assurance—What Women Should Know. In it they make the case that confidence has roots in genetic hard-wiring but also comes by choice: less people-pleasing and perfectionism and more action, risk-taking, and fast failure. In their first book together, Womenomics: Write Your Own Rules for Success, Kay and Shipman explore how women can create a professional life that meets their needs – and in the process creates more profitable companies with happier and more productive employees.
