Work With Me | Katie Treggiden Skip to content


If you’re looking for someone who will meet you where you are – complete with all your nuances, contradictions and imperfections – for a genuine conversation about how make your business or creative practice more sustainable, then you’re in the right place.


Depending on where you are in your sustainability journey and your own approach to learning and development, you will have different needs and preferences. That’s why I have three different offers for you, each intended to meet you where you’re at.



Sometimes it’s a quick but focused conversation to sow the seeds of an idea or simply give you the confidence you need to get started on something new, or move forward on something that’s had you feeling stuck.



Sometimes it’s an intensive deep-dive that helps you to see where you are on your Path to Sustainability, provides clarity on your next steps and forges the connections to help you get there.



Sometimes you just know that the work you need to do runs deep and you are ready to invest in the time it takes to move forward towards finding your niche and becoming fully sustainable.


A membership community in which you get to feel proud of contributing to a thriving planet with every product you make.
