NONPROFIT EVENT SPEAKER PROGRAMS

You’ve spent hundreds [maybe thousands] of hours getting people to your event and your one hour speaker program can make [or break] your fundraising goal. I can help you design your speaker program for maximum impact and outcome. I coach staff and board leadership to inspire and engage, as well as with the students, alumni or clients your nonprofit serves to bring their irreplaceable voices to your events and fundraisers. Storytelling is at the heart of effective fundraising. Well-designed, meaningful talks that illustrate the impact of your work will expand hearts (and giving).

TESTIMONIALS

 Because of you I was able to make such an impactful and truly from the heart speech. My best friend who knew my story for years still cried while watching my presentation. You helped me put into words my feelings, and you helped me truly see how far I’ve come.

I’ve told my story many times before but this was the first time I felt like it was a true depiction of how much I’ve grown. You were a joy to work with.

We recently enlisted Katherine's help for a major fundraising event and with her guidance, two of our young, inexperienced speakers were able to craft presentations that were personal, sincere, and focused, and presented with a confidence and passion that had a huge impact on the audience and our fundraising efforts.

Katherine's methods are remarkable in the way she works WITH you rather than FOR you. When the work is done, you feel like you just participated in a transformative, co-creative process that honors the knowledge and experiences you bring to the table, while, at the same time, introduces new concepts and strategies that stay with you.

She was just as impactful working with our Executive Director--an experienced, polished presenter--who, after working with Katherine, gave his strongest presentation ever. We're so thankful that we were introduced to Katherine. We look forward to working with her for years to come.

Your guidance helped me be more vulnerable, which I think helped people to connect.

Working with Katherine was a true joy. She created a very safe space where I felt comfortable to explore what I wanted to say…and helped me craft my message in a way that allowed me to more fully connect with everyone in the room.

For the first time, our guests understood the essence of what makes our organization so special. We raised an additional 40% from the previous year…and, most importantly, we inspired people to get involved. Katherine is an amazing force.

Katherine’s coaching enabled me to gain the courage to share my personal story in a way that was purposeful and enriching for myself and the audience. I had never shared the core drive behind my mission before; Katherine respectfully pushed me to go beyond my comfort zone while providing practical guidance along the way. I hope to work with her again!
