I began my journey to entrepreneurship as a trainee florist straight from school. I loved the work and immediately knew I wanted to have my own floristry business. After learning all I could about the industry I decided to take the plunge and buy the business I worked for at the age of 23 and I went on to win various awards including those for Customer Service, Young Entrepreneur of the Year and an everywoman award.
I soon decided that I wanted to concentrate on my two favourite aspects of floristry which are wedding and event flowers. I sold the retail side of my business in 2016, kept my wedding and event customers and started Katy & Co from our new home. I'm now looking into passing on my floristry knowledge in a series of short courses for beginners which should be ready early 2019.
