Katrina Mitchell, CEO and Chief Match Maker of SPEAK! Franchise Speakers

Katrina’s background in business-to-business sales and marketing began during her years in print magazine advertising sales, where she worked with ad agencies and advertising executives to craft compelling, client-centered solutions.

From 2003-2007, Katrina was the owner of the Boulder, Colorado location of a global franchise, Bark Busters Home Dog Training, an award-winning, in-home, dog training approach. As a franchisee, Katrina learned first-hand the challenges and rewards of owning an effectively run franchise operation and the fundamental value of healthy franchisee/franchisor relationships and supportive system cultures.

Katrina Mitchell founded SPEAK! in 2008 with a mission to help franchisors find the right speakers. As a successful franchisee herself, Katrina was constantly pursuing continuing education opportunities and decided to launch SPEAK! to help franchisors find the perfect speakers to support their franchisees. Being a natural “connector”, Katrina has been happily hunting down perfect matches for SPEAK!’s many clients ever since.
