Dad always said, “I hope my life never depends on a flashlight or telephone,” because when he needed them most, they didn’t work.  These days we can add “internet connection” to the list.

From February to June 2019, I will be in South Sudan where internet is iffy at best. But don’t let that stop you from making contact because I am scheduling keynotes for my return. And if I can’t respond to your inquiry directly, a member of the fabulous Team Catherine will so we can meet your needs.

Spell-binding, Transformative, Profound,
Funny & Deeply Humane

I’ve heard Catherine speak in a variety of venues, from exclusive, leadership retreats to large rooms. No matter the audience, her stories are spell-binding, transformative, profound, funny and deeply humane. She nourishes her audiences with leadership insights drawn from her first-hand experiences on many of the world’s most conflict-ridden fields of suffering and need. Catherine’s message of hope, resilience, innovation, persistence, cross-cultural connections sticks to the ribs.

Allow Me to Be Your Guide

There I was in 2009, deep into my ordinary life when an extraordinary opportunity arrived. I said, “Sure!” then packed up my MBA and SPHR and put what I couldn't carry into a 10x10 storage unit.

The following years were spent working with multi-cultural teams to provide needed assistance to populations in severe distress with the international humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders. Spending extended periods of time in over 10 different countries throughout Africa, the Middle East, Philippines, and Haiti. Coming face to face with everyday moments of heroism, heart, and hardship. And finding my way back to being human at work.

Today I am sharing those stories “from the field” with leaders and teams seeking new perspectives. The stories are from far-away places about navigating cultures, teams thriving together in crisis and chaos, and some very real moments. Real-world stories with universal lessons on teams coming together to create mission-driven multi-cultural teams where everyone belongs. 

Twende! 

Yallah! 

Allons-y!! 

Let’s go!
