Kate Betts

Kate definitely has a way with words, so it’s not surprising to hear that she has more than 20-years’ experience within a successful media career. Having trained as a Video-Journalist with the BBC, she produced features for BBC TV and also for BBC radio, including for Radio 4.

Early on in her career, Kate was actually one of the first reporters to be trained how to shoot and edit her own TV news package, a pioneering move at the time.

Kate’s understanding of how the media works, both online and offline led her to share this wealth of experience with students studying at the University of Sheffield. It was at this university that Kate taught a 'print and broadcast’ journalism course to undergraduates and postgraduates for 5-years', doing her part to inspire a new generation of reporters.

An Associate in high demand for us here at the Cabinet Office Emergency Planning College, Kate also provides training for the Chartered Institute of Public Relations. 

Fairness and honestly are the highest priority in Kate’s work, she endeavours to only work alongside companies who share her high standards and values. This level of conscientiousness translates into her PR teaching, as she ensures her students are instilled with these ethics for when they start dealing with the media.

Living in a beautiful part of West Yorkshire, Kate takes the opportunity whenever she can to roam on long walks with her dog. When at home she also enjoys spending her spare time gardening.
