“Kath is the consummate team and personal coach. She is brilliant, inspiring, and grounded. She practices what she says, and, for me, most importantly, distinguishes between acting (not appropriate in a business world) and authentic presence (which is!). Kath inspires people to give of themselves and make the best of themselves.”
