About
Katherine Cowan

Over the last decade Katherine has developed a thriving consultancy practice. She is in high demand for work that makes a positive difference to individuals, organisations and their clients.

Her work has ranged from user-led evaluations of services for women with convictions, to the design and delivery of an international research summit on autism and suicide. She is recognised internationally for her role in the development of the James Lind Alliance model of research priority setting. At the heart of Katherine’s work is an interest in enabling people to contribute to public policy debate, to the decision-making processes that affect them and to social change.

Katherine is an acknowledged expert on consensus decision-making, in research and practice. She is equally comfortable working with senior policymakers and civil servants as with patients, carers, researchers and practitioners. Supporting her workplace coaching as well as making a significant contribution to the evidence base in this area, Katherine completed (with Distinction) her Masters in Coaching and Mentoring Practice in 2013. Her work is underpinned by her training and expertise in, and enjoyment of, weaving people and process, working creatively to time and target.
