KEYNOTE TYPE:Opening or Closing, Or Deep Dive
THEMES: Self-Esteem, Self-Belief, Self-Confidence, Mindset, Inspiration.

No era has had more pressure to look a particular way, dress a particular way or act a particular way…. than this one!

Young people are being bombarded 24/7; by social media, magazines, and television. There’s no escaping it. And it's having a devastating effect on their self-esteem, self-worth, self-confidence and self-belief.

The only way to stop this incredibly destructive impact is to…

And in the process Become their #1 Fan versus their own worst enemy.

Kathryn’s presentations are highly interactive. Drawing on her performance background she’ll use a combination of music, personal stories, props and humour to re-connect your youth with who they really are.


  • Break free of the boxes and labels society puts them in.
  • Silence their Inner Critic and replace it with a Cheer Squad.
  • Start telling themselves a brand new story about what they're capable of achieving.
  • Re-connect with the tiny child that lives inside their young adult body, that knows they're unique and special. And that failing fast and failing forward is the quickest way to achieving their goals and dreams.
  • Re-connect with their Authentic Selves.

As a tiny baby attempting to take your first few shaky steps, you didn’t say “I suck at this, I might as well give up now.” As you start choreographing a brand-new story for yourself be prepared to feel like you have two left feet. -

There’s no such thing as failure… only feedback. Fail fast and fail forward.

LIFE LESSONS Draw on what you’ve learned to do so far. 

Forget perfection. Re-connect with your Inner Child and let them guide your direction.

LIVING LIFE ON YOUR TERMS When you break free of the negative boxes and labels that society has put you in, and give your inner critic the sack, you can start telling yourself a brand new story.

Stop playing the “compare and despair game.” Dare to be the best version of you that you can be!

Just a note to say thanks for the EXCEPTIONAL job you did with our Hogan’s Young ‘s. Entrepreneurs. Your workshop on Emotional Intelligence was mentioned by all as one of the best experiences they’d encountered. You would be interested too, to know that you were mentioned by many of them as one of the most outstanding leaders . They particularly liked your candor and how you demonstrated concern for each of them. They see you as authentic and someone they would feel comfortable following. Hopefully we will be able to convince you to come back. Aloha, John Webster

"Kathryn was truly engaging and captivated her audience at all levels. Her message was thorough and her style was dynamic. As well as her Keynote Address, Kathryn also ran an energized hands on workshop to give the participants practical tools and techniques to use in their lives. As I talked with the young leaders at the conclusion of the convention, the speaker that they most quoted and referred to was Kathryn."

Tim Hawkins
Chair Youth Convention National Speakers Association

"Kathryn approached our college this year with an offer we could not refuse- to boost the confidence and self- belief of our students as they begin their final year at Roseville College. Young emerging leaders often sabotage their potential success through negative self-talk. In her session she revealed how to relegate this for good. Her presentation was highly inter-active and very memorable and our young women found it powerful. They responded with the following comments: ‘inspiring’; ‘interesting and informative’; ‘encouraging’; ‘useful and applicable to everyday life’; ‘positive and motivating presenter’ I would heartily recommend Kathryn as a vibrant and inspiring speaker and a most effective communicator."
