She directed and coordinated high-profile communications campaigns including stakeholder management, press handling, social media, speeches and events. She has extensive experience working with the media on proactive and reactive media stories and worked as Sir Michael Parkinson’s personal press officer in his role as Dignity Ambassador.

Shining a light on the amazing people, projects and businesses who make South West London such a wonderful and vibrant place to live and work.
Life Outside SWL.TV
Katharina’s a busy mother so when she’s not working, she’s usually with her son or volunteering for the school PTA. She’s also passionate about food, health and fitness as well as long walks in Wimbledon Common with her dachshund dog.
