Inspirational Female Futurist, Keynote Speaker and Strategic Thinker about Business and Entrepreneurs
I am an experienced entrepreneur now advising SME companies and start-ups what they need to know in order to grow their own businesses successfully.
I started my own lifestyle and fiction publishing business from the bedroom of my home and over a period of 20 years grew it to become one of the most successful independent book publishing companies in the English-speaking world.
I sold it in 2007, just before the credit crunch and before the digital revolution in publishing, both of which we could see were on the horizon because following future trends was our specialist publishing expertise.
Alongside working with companies, I am also invited to speak at conferences and events and to give workshops. My specialist topics are entrepreneurship and future trends.
"One should expect business consultants to speak from the apparency of their own hands-on success and experience; advise with authority yet be entirely approachable; demonstrate spontaneous insight and empathy with your business... yet so very few do. Judy Piatkus does! She embodies the true definition of consultancy." Andrew Humphries, Greenlabelmusic
"I would be pleased to recommend Judy Piatkus to any business organisation or individual who would like to take the opportunity of thinking outside the box. Judy’s ability to promote lateral thinking and find practical solutions has recently been well demonstrated with one of my companies."- Michael Ratcliffe, Chairman, Pickabook Ltd
"Judy was extremely professional in her approach. She was able to succinctly identify the key issues and make relevant honest appraisal, giving suitable recommendations. I would certainly hire her again." - Professor Lynn Basford
Judy was described by The London Times in 2009 as ‘one of the world’s leading thinkers’
