Thank you for your time and expertise, Kathy. You provided great insights that I know our team will use to every advantage. We also appreciate your enthusiasm, humor and energy — a great All-Hands!
Diane Gage-Lofgren, VP of Brand, Marketing, and Communications, Kaiser Permanente

Kathy is a great speaker. She did a terrifically successful program for our FEI group on branding. How she manages to consistently weave humor and storytelling with practical advice can only be appreciated by being in her audience. Kathy sprinkles her program with practical gems that have the listeners scrambling for scraps of paper to jot them down. Yet somehow she takes her audience members through the strategic concepts behind branding techniques and then leads them to the practicalities that listeners can immediately put to work. Whether she is talking about subtle techniques on LinkedIn or shaping one’s brand, Kathy was entertaining and authoritative – everyone felt they had learned new tools and approaches while having a very good time.
Jack Longinotti, Program Chair – Careers, FEI Silicon Valley
