"Kate’s presentation was phenomenal! She was funny, engaging and her stories were real – everyone could relate to them. As she shared stories with us, she imparted messages of hope and she communicated her wisdom to us …in order to be resilient we need to find joy in what we have today, in what we are doing today and on the goals for tomorrow. She definitely inspired us! Her presentation set the stage for our Reconnecting 2020 Conference."
"Kate was so fun and friendly to work with leading up to the session and put our minds at ease in knowing the event was going to go well. And we were not wrong; our virtual attendees all indicated that the laughs were very much needed during these stressful times! It’s not always easy to see the humour in our daily lives, particularly for leaders in our industry that has been so impacted by Covid. Thank you Kate for the reminder to find what gives us joy, make ourselves a priority, and lighten up!"
"Thanks, so much for making our event such fun. We all had a great time and certainly learned a thing or two from you. We were talking at lunch after you left and realized we were remiss in doing something for you. So we would like to give you your fourth standing ovation."
"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."
"I thought her presentation was a great balance between humour and valuable information on how to bring more humour into your life. It was a wonderful evening filled with laughter."
"The feedback I received so far from staff was that her talk was the highlight of the day. Her witty banter and engaging dialogue was superb and the broken telephone exercise was a hoot. However, it was Kate herself that made a difference and like our M.C. Ray summed up 'she is a real live wire'."
"On behalf of the Tillsonburg District Chamber of Commerce, I want to thank you for agreeing to speak at our Awards of Excellence event. The feedback from our guests has been overwhelming. They LOVED you! So many people took the time to grab me after the event was over to tell me how much they enjoyed having you there, and what a great addition you were to our program. On Friday, I received tons of emails saying the same."
"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."
"Kate was wonderful! The nurses had a great time (and you know we can sometimes be a tough crowd - we take ourselves very seriously!). Kate was warm and funny and engaged everyone in your presentation. Kate was very intuitive to who her audience was and I think by the time she left we felt we had made a friend! Thank you again for your support and please let Kate know we loved her!!"
"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."
"I want to thank you so much for coming out and speaking for us and making our conference such a great success. I know Rosy has been in touch with you and has given you some feedback from happy participants - but this is on a personal level from me - it was great you came through for me and saved the day when Carilynn was not able to make it."
