Inspirational Speaker & Business Woman
Katie Piper is an inspiring and motivational speaker who was left with severe burns to her face and blinded in her left eye after a horrific acid attack.
Katie went through a total of 40 operations, was in an induced coma for 12 days and her weight dropped to a 38 kg. Katie had to wear a face mask for 23 hours a day and her mother, Diane, left her job to care for her daughter full-time.
Katie turned adversity into opportunity founding the Katie Piper Foundation to support scar and burn victims as well as promote the postoperative treatment that allowed Katie to return to a normal life.
Katie Piper is now a best-selling international author, inspirational speaker, TV presenter, and charity campaigner. Katie decided to share her story in a remarkable film for the Cutting Edge strand on Channel 4 called ‘Katie: My Beautiful Face’ which was watched by over 3.5million viewers and nominated for Best Single Documentary at the BAFTA Television Awards in 2010.

She has also graced the dance floor in BBC1’s hit show ‘Strictly Come Dancing.’
Katie has also written a number of bestselling books, two autobiographies ‘Beautiful’ and ‘Beautiful Ever After’, an affirmations book called ‘Start Your Day With Katie’, a self-help booked called ‘Things Get Better’ and then ‘Confidence: The Secret’ with an accompanying journal and a book written with her Mum ‘From Mother To Daughter’.
