Kirsty's Role

Bringing TEDx to her home town had always been a long-term dream for Kirsty. She realised this goal in 2022 with the delivery of the inaugural TEDxWarrington. Kirsty is the licensee and curator of TEDxWarrington and leads the organising team on event planning, organisation and delivery. She views TEDxWarrington as an incredible opportunity to profile some of the amazing talent and ideas in the region.


Kirsty is a networking, marketing and events consultant. She delivers networking skills and strategy training; she facilitates, hosts and speaks at business development and networking events; and she creates marketing resources for on and offline networking purposes. Event brands associated with Kirsty have included Colony Networking, KTS Women in Business, LinkedInLocal, Cheshire International Women’s Day, Warrington Curry Club, SoupOnTheGo Crowdfunding Events and Think Family Matters – the latter two being social enterprises she still runs. Kirsty grew up and still lives in South Warrington and has a strong sense of social responsibility. She has fundraised thousands for various regional causes over the years and has received several awards for her community work.


Kirsty is a travel junkie so any extended free time is spent exploring cultures near and far. Back home, when she’s not juggling her three kids’ social lives, she enjoys keeping fit, good food and drink supporting community, environmental and fundraising events, and writing.

A hilarious clip that epitomises human behaviour and tribal, team and leadership instincts.

Matt Cutts – Try something new for 30 days

A direct and encouraging appeal to our curious but cautious minds that anything is possible if we insert new habits into our lives.
