"Kathy's energy and warm presence on stage is complimented by her presence off stage. She talks to people, she laughs, she listens and she asks questions. She is a terrific speaker!"
"Talent, beauty, brains. What a rare combination, but you deliver it all! I am out looking for New Cheese because of your terrific skills. You were The Best at the Leadership Conference!"
"Your session provided an incredible kick-off for the Conference. Attendees made lots of “cheese” references throughout the rest of the sessions, which shows that they were immediately applying their learning. Your training also provided a nice blend of professional and personal change experiences."
"I just wanted to officially thank you again for your outstanding presentation at our Tony Roma’s Global Conference in South Beach.
We did a written survey after the conference and your presentation scored the highest marks. Many attendees rated it as the best presentation they heard over the three-day conference."
