Finally, I am memoirist Katrina Collier! ๐Ÿคฉ My personal story has waited too long to be shared, but it is time that it heads out into the world to inspire others to heal.

I am known in the recruitment and talent acquisition community as a confident, opinionated and respected facilitator, author and keynote speaker. Over the past 12+ years, I have worked with clients worldwide and spoken on stages on five continents. My first book was published by Kogan Page and The Robot-Proof Recruiter, is revered in its niche and was short-listed for a Business Book Award in 2020. My second book, Reboot Hiring, will be published by Wiley on August 1st, 2024.

But the belief that I have always been this way belies the truth; it took work to heal my utter self-loathing and gain self-mastery. Whenever I receive words of awe I think, gratefully, ‘If only you knew how far I’ve come.’

I feel it is my duty to share my story to inspire others to heal. I want people to know that I was once riddled with self-loathing and insecurities; my teens, twenties and thirties were a mess. I made monumental mistakes and behaved dreadfully in an attempt to fill the void. But I found a way to self-love, care and compassion, and became happy and confident.

Anyone can take the first step to feeling significantly happier than yesterday. I hope my memoir motivates them to take a step.

Fun facts

I’m an Aussie Brit, living in London. My pronouns are she/her/Ms. #BeHuman ๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ ๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€โšง๏ธ โœŠ๐Ÿป

My Instagram tends to be 80% dog snaps to 20% other. Banjo even has his own spot on top of my desk! ๐Ÿงก

Without discovering Michelle Zelli and her magic healing powers, I wouldn’t be half the human I am today. โœจ

I was silly enough to cut my hair off in the middle of a pandemic. But I blame the heat and perimenopause.

When I travel, I can say yes to things that scare me. Like swimming to the Devil’s Pools, Victoria Falls, Zambia.
