Katie Piper: From Surviving to Thriving has unfortunately been cancelled. All bookers have been contacted with more information. If you have a ticket for this event but have not heard from us yet, please click here.

Katie Piper secured her place in the nation’s hearts when she appeared on Channel 4’s BAFTA-nominated documentary Katie: My Beautiful Face, which covered the early stages of her recovery after an acid attack in 2008.

Now, described as an ‘icon of her generation’, the TV presenter and campaigner is in a very different place in her life: from setting up The Katie Piper Foundation, to hosting her own award-winning weekly podcast, publishing best-selling self-help books and becoming the face of iconic global beauty brands, Katie is thriving.

Katie’s self-belief and composure seems effortless, but how did she get to that point?

In this intimate live event, Katie will touch on how acceptance of her situation allowed her to move forward, and how she remained positive even through the toughest of times. Sharing tips on how to build and maintain self-confidence, focussing your aspirations and changing your perception of yourself, Katie will also share practical methods to build up your own resilience in what has been an exceptionally difficult year.

‘For many 2020 has been an incredibly tough year, with lots of hurdles, trials and tribulations. When we endure change, challenge and pain, we are forced to develop new coping mechanisms, to adapt and survive. This is something I had to learn many years ago. I am always asked about confidence – what it means and where it comes from and my answer is always the same – it comes from resilience.

I cannot wait to be back on tour – sharing space, ideas and life lessons with my wonderful audience. I look forward to seeing you all in 2021, for what I hope will be the most rewarding experience for all of us.’

Spend an evening with Katie for an honest, uplifting and timely conversation about how, in an uncertain world, to be the very best version of yourself.
