Rev’d Kate Bottley

Rev’d Kate Bottley

Known for her Sunday morning radio show on BBC Radio 2, the Reverend Kate Bottley has also appeared on shows including Gogglebox, and Celebrity Masterchef.

Reverend Kate is passionate about bringing stories of faith and belief to the widest audience possible, and can often be seen on the long-running religious show, Songs of Praise.

Although not raised in a religious family, Kate admitted that she started going to church because she fancied the local vicar’s son. They have been married since 1998 and have two children.

Inspiring – she brough them laughter and tears of joy.
North Yorkshire WI Event

Our conference was really successful, and Kate was everything we hoped for. She was just right for our audience and it went down really well.
Birmingham Church of England School Event

It’s been a busy morning answering calls about how great Kate was. We had a wonderful evening and Kate must have said hello or hugged most of our members! Such a warm and interesting lady.
Clacton & NE Essex Arts and Literary Society

We had such a lovely time with Kate at our annual meeting. Her talk was funny, informative, and uplifting and enjoyed by all those attending the events.
Dorset Federation of Women Institutes.

The feedback from our members has been tremendous, many have said it was the best meeting ever. Kate’s presentation truly inspired our members, her humour and easy chat uplifted everyone and they all went home smiling.
Somerset County Federation of Women’s Institutes

Kate was absolutely FANTASTIC! One of our volunteers, who has been to nearly every event we’ve done for the last seven years, said he enjoyed it more than any other event we’d ever had. She was an absolute joy and we loved every minute of hosting her.
Rochdale Literature & Ideas Festival 

Kate was fantastic and so personable. The members absolutely loved her and no task we asked of her was too much from announcing raffle tickets to taking selfies with the members. Our Facebook account has been inundated with wonderful comments and fabulous photos. We were privileged to hear stories regarding your children who obviously bring you a lot of joy and support and your upbringing.
Cheshire Federation of Women’s Institutes Annual Council Meeting 

We chose Kate as the after dinner speaker for our Annual Institute Dinner. Throughout the evening Kate was absolutely fantastic, from speaking with top table guests before the meal to dancing with guests after her speech. Kate’s delivery was flawless, she engaged with everybody in the room and her speech was absolutely brilliant and had one or two people crying with laughter. I couldn’t recommend Kate more highly for any corporate events as her professionalism and humour couldn’t fail to disappoint. I would also highly recommend COBJ Management as they were extremely helpful throughout the entire process.
Middlesbrough CII Dinner in Middlesbrough

Kate certainly got our conference off to a positive and joy-filled start! As well as mingling with delegates on their arrival prior to her speech, she made time to chat to speakers and organisers afterwards, offering photos and smiles all round. Her energy, enthusiasm, honesty and seemingly endless raft of perfectly judged stories really did engage the delegates and provided the perfect bridge between passion for life more generally and renewed faith in our calling. Wit, intelligence and care seem to ooze from Kate and we would not hesitate to recommend her to others seeking a key note. She was only too willing to accommodate us on the pre-event conference call […] giving us her full attention and charm! Every aspect of her approach, both in the lead-up to and on the day itself, has been exemplary, and an inspiration to us all here at GSAL. Our memories of her words and her presence will certainly not fade quickly.
Teaching and Learning Leeds Conference

Kate did an amazing job at our awards on Friday! She was a joy to work with; her hosting of the event was so adept, so witty, so sparklingly good. Many people have been in touch to say how much they enjoyed it, and all have commented on what a splendid job she did and how she hit exactly the right tone.
RTS Yorkshire Awards 

Our members really enjoyed her as she was really down to earth and funny.
Autumn Conference for Derbyshire WI

Kate was absolutely brilliant!! She is so approachable. She went round the room speaking to the ladies before she did her ‘stuff’ which was entertaining from start to finish. She fulfilled our criteria of ‘Inspiring Women’ in spades. A lovely person with a huge personality.
