WHY YOU WILL LOVE KATE
“…in no time had us all giggling and laughing. Her subject matter fit perfectly with the age and diversity of our group.”
Chairman, Southwest Ontario Dealers Association, Canadian Tire
“Kate was truly a hit. She conveyed many important messages to a group of women under stress by reminding them to incorporate things they love into their lives incrementally, to use their intuition, and to combat stress with laughter. Not only did she entertain these women with side-splitting stories with which every woman and mother can relate, she gave them a much needed shot of inspiration.”
The Junior League of Toronto
“Thank you once again for attending Gamma-Dynacare’s annual Symposium event this year and for your uplifting session. I think your key messages are very relevant. Most importantly, I think you struck a cord with our people – I don’t think I have seen them laugh this hard since I joined the company 9 months ago.”
“We absolutely loved Kate’s presentation at both of our sites. She was personable and easy-going in our chat prior to the formal keynote address. I appreciated her relaxed approach when we were unable to provide both types of microphones at each site!! She truly practices and demonstrates what she “preaches” in her talk – taking everything in stride and LAUGHING about life’s ups and downs. We received great feedback from both audiences and I was really quite pleased with the events from beginning to end. I would highly recommend Kate!!”
William Olser Health System
“You wouldn’t believe how much impact your workshop had on me!!! I attended your workshop for U of T “Humour at Work”… I am changing my attitude and the way of thinking. From this point of view, I would like to say “thank you” for your outstanding speech about humour and what it may bring to people’s lives.”
