About Catherine and EponaWise

“I have never stopped believing that I can talk to animals”

Catherine Holland-Bax

EponaWise Limited is a company that helps Catherine follow her dreams.

Catherine lives in Shropshire with two cats, several chickens and three Icelandic horses. She has never stopped believing that she can talk to animals, and eventually this belief led her into writing stories for children. 

A graduate of the prestigious Golden Egg Academy, Catherine is publishing her first children’s book, Little Viking Horse, on 5th October of 2021.

Catherine is currently writing a story of a badger rebellion – just imagine if the badgers decided to fight back against destructive humans, and children could hear the animals talk!

Other Viking horse adventures and stories from the perspective of animals are taking shape in Catherine’s daydreams and notebooks.

As well as writing…

Catherine also enjoys supporting others to develop their passions and personal leadership, and occasionally undertakes coaching or public speaking in order to do this. She is an unconventional leader with a reputation for authenticity and resilience.

Catherine is an Associate Consultant with Amara Collaboration working to promote more aware leadership in the world. She is a contributing author to Street Smart Awareness and Inquiry in Action; an expert contributor to the design and delivery of Amara’s on-line training Building Resilience in Leadership and The Power of Storytelling in Leadership; and has also co-designed and facilitated transformational leadership development retreats.

Before deciding to talk more to her animals, and write stories, Catherine was a CEO who steered large-scale mergers and transitions in both public and private sectors where she was known for using her passion, personal experience, storytelling, and a little humour, to inspire others.

Catherine is also currently a Non-Executive Director/Senior Independent Director in the NHS and is a Parish Councillor.
