Catherine it was an absolute pleasure to work with you on our recent Leadership conference. You are very talented, energetic and need I say funny! We enjoyed having you as part of our team and you really did feel like part of our team. We have received positive feedback on both your Survival of the Funniest Keynote speech over dinner as well as your participation in the business segment of our conference. You added a great deal of value and inspiration. Thank you for helping to make our conference a success.

The evaluations from our Carswell seminar are now in, and the response is excellent. Your program combined unstructured fun with focused learning. I would not hesitate to recommend your approach to any company seeking to encourage employees to think outside the box, or to take a new approach to the difficult competitive problems we face in business. Taking your work seriously and yourself lightly is a recipe for success.

Thank you very much for appearing at our company.…Your comedy was delightful. I still chuckle at some of your lines. I will be recommending you to any of my business associates who want to arrange a show with pizzazz.

In this case a glowing testimonial writes itself. The club audience was delighted, educated, entertained, and all sorts of other joyful reactions to Catherine's presentation last week. Weeks later, I overheard fellow audience members retelling stories from the highlights of the presentation. A happy, funny and personal trip for all of us at The St. Andrews Club. Bless you

During your presentation I witnessed the faces of the attendees go from respectful skepticism to full smiles of understanding about the power of humour. And you did all of that in less than 15 minutes! Having the skill to teach lawyers to laugh at themselves and life’s ironies is a wonderful gift I hope you keep on giving.

An inspiring story. This is so true. I want to start a humour journal and allow myself to heal through laughter. My late mother laughed her way through life and was described by many as a very beautiful happy soul.

You have deeply touched me and I found you very inspirational. I am very glad that I have met you. Your bravery, your humor, your upbeat personality is one part I took away from Canyon Ranch.

Given it is our year end, you can appreciate how I valued the opportunity to read through your books and get some good laughs!! I actually shared some of your quotes with some of the staff so the laughter was contagious and good for all.
- D. Brushett , Former Managing Director, Human Resources, BMO Capital Markets
You bought humour to the event, many laughs to the guests, and you were brilliant at auctioning off all those bottoms! The work you put into making this happen is tremendous and greatly appreciated.
With your help we raised over $129, 000, which is $38, 000 over the event.
Thank you for your valued role!

I think she [Catherine] is simply amazing, she’s one of my favourite speakers at canyon ranch. I had the joy and blessing of listening to her last year, and I’ve thought of her all year long, and that laughter makes such a difference. She’s amazing, inspirational.
