Thank you again, Catherine, for being part of the New Zealand Young Women's Festival as one of our speakers. Your presentation on 'Finding Your Purpose' was incredibly apt for the ladies and gave them the tools and ideas to get them inspired to change their thinking around their life and business goals. We really appreciated your valuable time and effort to helping us deliver this message to our Wāhine.
Great work Catherine! We really appreciated your approach and the way you got us all to think differently about the way we manage change so we can achieve peak performance. It was a tough crowd and I was impressed with how you kept them all engaged. Thank you for taking a challenging topic and making it so interesting, interactive and inspiring.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you, Catherine, for coming and speaking at our event last night to our EAs and guests on 'Standing Out and Being Seen'. It was a very thought-provoking and inspiring presentation you gave us. I had some of the EAs come to me after the event, praising your presentation and saying how much the messages resonated with them. One of them who was very moved by your message about the social media presence has already started to arrange for her and any EAs who are interested to meet with a Marketing person in our office to have a session on how to improve their LinkedIn profiles next week. So thank you for inspiring them and starting the ripple. You were exactly what we needed!
