Fully engaged; developing exceptional staff that stays.


Staff turn over is one of the biggest drain on profits. Especially in the hospitality industry with an annualized employee turnover rate of over 70% percent in the hotel industry alone. That’s more than 6 percent of your staff departing every single month. And every time someone leaves, you have to spend time and money finding, training and investing in a replacement who, in all likelihood won’t be there to celebrate their one year anniversary.

Reducing turnover by creating a culture of engagement where employees are valued within the organization will dramatically increase your retention rate and help you build a stronger brand with staff that have a deeper understanding of your vision and purpose.

Kathryn’s presentations are highly interactive and her unique blend of story telling, humor and music ensures key take aways are internalized by participants who will return to work excited to implement her proven success strategies.


Participants will leave this program with:

  • Insights into the role of engagement in staff retention
  • A clear understanding of how engaged staff perform at an exceptional level and deliver superior service.
  • The ability to create a culture of commitment amongst employees to the organizations shared goals, values and vision.

I had the pleasure of working with Kathryn Orford at the recent National Speakers Convention in Canberra. Because Kathryn’s been empowering thousands of people around the world for decades now. It was AWESOME to work with her because as an MC you want to deal with speakers who know what they’re doing on and off the platform. Whether its for a keynote or one of her workshops, I whole heartedly recommend Kathryn.
