"In my first session with Kathryn, I received much more than I expected. In addition to learning how to use my voice more effectively, I developed a very deep awareness of the underlying reasons why my voice had lots its'
vibrancy. This has triggered significant changes in how and when I speak, and ensures that I am heard. It has empowered me to have a voice, and changed my life."

Glen Stover,
Director Operations

"I think that your presentation, in a small group has great value . . . With so much of our job focusing around personal or telephone contact, and with so little formal expert training or facilitation being offered in peer groups, it goes a long way . . ."

"At the request of the Ontario Unit Manager and to benefit from Kathryn's previous experience, Kathryn took on the responsibility of Call Monitoring and Call Coaching for the Ontario Unit as well as for some members of the Operations Department.

Jarka Crawford,

"Kathryn not only improved my expressing and presenting ability, she also helped me represent myself in a more professional and credible way through speaking. Kathryn offered a source of support and encouragement that I have been drawing from during my speaking engagements -- whether it is a phone call or a talk in front of audience. It was a worthwhile investment in my professional and personal growth."

Netila Demneri,
Director of Operations, Digital20 Project

"I just wanted to briefly touch base with you and thank you again for the impact you've had on my life and my professional conduct. The classes I took with you really helped me become more aware of my voice and the way I make myself heard. I have yet to perfect the art of mastering my voice but with practice, I can see the results and the change daily even! In addition to being able to speak with a voice that demands more attention, my confidence levels have also risen and there I can feel all the difference. So, thank you again!"

That's The Idea
Jill Kennedy,
CEO & Social Media Manager

"I worked with Kathryn in 2014-2015 through the Mentorship program, LaunchSpot via Enterprise Toronto's Starter Company Program for Young Entrepreneurs. Kathryn and I worked very well together. A major component of my business is public speaking. Kathryn has spent many sessions teaching me vocal warm ups and exercises, extemporaneous, prepared and read speech and best practices before, during and following presentations. Kathryn's value and knowledge on personal branding has been essential to me as I developed my image. Kathryn continues to take a step above, introducing me to many resources and local opportunities to network and speak. I am very grateful to have learned from her."

"Earlier this month Scotia Plaza's Personal Banking sales team attended your Voice Evaluation Workshops. The Workshops were well received by all who attended. There was a good variety in your training methods which seems to reinforce the message and promote the audience involvement. Combining discussions, self evaluation and personal examples was very effective. Kathryn, again thank you we really enjoyed the Workshop."
