Catherine is an ex City Lawyer who now focuses on developing people and strategy at Board and Executive level.

Catherine has a passionate belief in the power of sport. This has been driven through her own experiences of playing and coaching, and through her professional life which has led her to work alongside Olympic athletes, coaches, and those who operate at the grassroots of sport.

Having trained and qualified at City Law Firm Linklaters, Catherine then spent a further 10 years in the law. As she progressed she discovered her love of training and people development, which led to a new career path. In 2015,  combining her strengths, interests, and passions, Catherine set up Sport and Beyond, a training and consulting company. One of Sport and Beyond’s first partnerships was with the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust. Catherine is delighted to continue her relationship with this inspiring and meaningful charity, and in particular to build on her non-executive experience, having been previously Senior Independent Director on the Board of Parkour UK.
