Judy Piatkus grew up in North London. At the age of 11 she won a scholarship to a local girls’ school but at 17 failed to get the grades she needed for the university place she wanted. Undeterred she gained experience in the publishing industry and went on to launch her own company, Piatkus books, which she sold in 2007.
Subsequently Judy has developed a portfolio career. She is a keynote speaker, an angel investor, and a coach and mentor to many small and medium start-ups. In 2011 she founded ConsciousCafe, a network which now has several branches, and which brings people together for connection and conversation.
She has a Diploma in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, and achieved an MA in Creative Leadership as a mature student.
Judy's upcoming memoir, A PASSION FOR BOOKS, tells the story of her experience as an entrepreneurial young woman, married with a family, who launched a global publishing company from her bedroom, including its subsequent success, eventual sale and everything in between.
