CWL at CIAAs a Professional Speaker...

Cathy is a warm, charismatic, motivational speaker whose interactive presentations deliver positive strategies for accomplishing extraordinary things—living more deeply, joyfully, and successfully. She is dedicated to helping us understand and learn how to use, not only our intelligence, but also our imaginations, by providing the tools needed to change the way we think, how we feel, and what we do. Her audiences are enlightened, entertained, and inspired!

She has presented workshops and seminars at national and international conferences from Alaska to Europe, for many businesses, such as Sony, Verizon, and Ernst & Young in New York Times Square, for hospitals, non-profit organizations such as the National March of Dimes, the Children’s Tumor Foundation, and at several annual cancer survivor celebrations. (See Partial Client List) The highlight of her career, so far, has been an invitation to speak and share her ideas with two government agencies at their headquarters in Langley, Virginia, known at the National Reconnaissance Office and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

With her enthusiasm and thought-provoking concepts … 

“Cathy will not only make you think, she will touch your heart and soul in a very special way!“
—Mark Victor Hansen, Co-author of The Chicken Soup for the Soul series
