Dear Cate Collins,  On behalf of the RMA conference committee I would like to thank you for participation this year. Our conference was a success with many delegates coming from all major destinations in North America and Europe. Our job on the committee is to find exciting speakers that bring both educational and insightful messages to our membership, attendees and executives in attendance – this is not an easy task. I am happy to say that you made our job easier this year. We are very grateful that you were able to join us this year as part of our conference. Your presentation is insightful, inspiring and certainly entertaining at the same time. I would like to inform you that we received a great amount of positive feed-back regarding your presentation and I was told by several executives within the crowd that they will be looking to contact you for their own events. We will certainly look to have you back in the future as your positive attitude and influence was appreciated which certainly assisted in making our conference a hit this year. Thank you again.

We have benefited from Cate’s training and coaching over many years and she has done some training for local Developmental Services agencies offered through our Durham Systems Management table.  She is the author of THE POWERHOUSE IN YOU: How to Lead with Greater Resilience, Courage, and Confidence and also provides high energy, engaging and inspirational keynotes that provide resiliency strategies, engagement tools and powerful success habits.

I listened to Cate speak at a seminar a couple of years back and was inspired by her positivity and confidence. I started working with her as my leadership coach and she has been transformative for my growth as a leader. Through her four rooms framework, she focuses on helping leaders be the best versions of themselves so they can lead others effectively. She always knows just what I need to hear when I need it in order to move forward to the next level. If you are interested in taking your career and personal development to the next level I highly recommend you have Cate in your corner.

We hired Cate to work with our predominately male team.  Cate worked closely with us and delivered effective training and coaching sessions on such topics as Stress Management, Dealing With Difficult People, Time Management and a variety of other subjects.  Cate demonstrated a keen ability to adapt to change and react quickly to what was going on at our work place.  She made a significant impact on how our people would come together as a team.  Some months after Cate’s contract with us ended, one of our men suffered a heart attack and died while at work.  We made the decision to offer grief counseling to our team and it had to be done immediately.  Cate was our natural solution!   Cate was amazing and was able to help our people through this difficult time.  I can’t imagine us having to go through this without her.  I would highly recommend Cate to work with your staff in any venue as she brings a high quality of expertise in employee relations. We are so thankful to Cate for all that she has done for us.  Prepare yourself to be impressed by Cate’s abilities.

You did it again! We could not ask for a more energetic, informative, fun and pertinent launch for our educational seminar in Puerto Rico than your opening Session.  And you kept attendees’ energy levels charged up through your second presentation.  Thank you for putting so much effort into your programs. It has been a treat working with you again.  I am already looking for another opportunity to work together!

Cate provided training to our group. Many members of the group were struggling with grief, separation, isolation and general frustration at lack of systems supports. Cate’s workshop moved the entire group! They were moved from their feelings of “stuck” and propelled into empowerment. Cate taught them how to take charge of their own power again and enjoy the moments that worked and not to stay stuck on the possibility of future of  failures. Her warm personal style and articulate and energizing presentation kept everyone focused and intrigued. We can’t wait to do it again!

Cate presented her 4-part “Ignite the Powerhouse In You series” with all of our combined staff from a total 8 of not-for-profit organizations. The timing was great since many of them were exhausted, and overwhelmed and welcomed resilience strategies. Cate gave us some really important and valuable messages on how to bring out the best in ourselves. Her high energy, playful, practical, and thought-provoking approach had people engaged early on. The positive feedback continues to pour in about Cate’s powerful sessions. The sessions were well tailored to our audience as Cate was thorough in her pre-presentation process of meeting with our committee and staff from each organization so she could customize her presentations to meet our needs. And that she did! Cate was a genuine pleasure to work with and went above and beyond what was needed. As a committee, we highly recommend Cate for any keynote, training or retreat you may be considering with her.
