Katherine Baker is Founder and CEO of Intrinsic Energy, an EdTech platform looking to revolutionise corporate training methods, to make learning and development more impactful and accessible for all. With over 8 years of experience as a trainer and speaker, working for companies such as Cisco, Unilever, Schroder’s and Goldman Sachs, Katherine saw the challenges employees were facing when it came to their own career development. Upon receipt of a grant from Innovate UK in 2020, she launched Intrinsic Energy in 2021. Having worked across the US, Europe and South East Asia, Katherine is hoping to bring her wealth of knowledge and experience to as many individuals and businesses who may be unable to access quality training in their current working environments. Ultimately, she hopes to encourage others to push themselves beyond their comfort zones, to achieve their career goals.
