Krista Poole - CEO - CanLearn Society

As a small group facilitator at the New Mexico Leaders in Mindfulness Conference 2016, Catherine broke the mold. Participants walked away truly understanding the importance of awakened relationships across all aspects of their lives, but particularly the difference they can make at the workplace. With lightness, scientific evidence and a true sense of community, she was one of the Conference favorites.

Catherine was the keynote speaker at a social innovation event that REAP hosted. Her presentation combined traditional and modern techniques to surprise and delight our guests, challenging us all to awaken to our full potential as individuals, members of teams, and leaders of organizations. Catherine’s commitment to practice what she preaches is both inspiring and insightful as she leads the movement toward a new economic model.

Stephanie Jackman - President & Founder, REAP Business Association

As a leader and facilitator, she was both fluid and focused, fierce and nurturing, spending time where the team needed to go deeper and going far beyond the established agenda for the day to make sure we were all aligned in the same direction. Catherine is a gem and a true professional. Visionary, strong, and grounded. I had the privilege of learning from Catherine at an all day team building session with a diverse team of leaders. What impressed me first: her total commitment to the work that needed to be done for the team to understand each other and to know ourselves better to improve our performance. She set a powerful context to open difficult conversations quickly.
