“The speakers Cathy is able to deliver are the top names in their fields. She gets the ungettable guest; I’ve been amazed at her ability, time after time, to turn a ‘no’ into a ‘yes.’ As a client, I’ve found her to be as graceful, professional and conscientious as she is persuasive. Rather than a consultant, I truly feel that Cathy is a colleague who brings the same sense of urgency to my cause that I do…”
David M. Rubin, Former Dean, S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, Syracuse University
