Speaking

The C-Suite Career Catalysts are available to speak at your next event, meeting, or annual industry conference. We can be engaged as a power-of-five panel… or individually as keynote or featured speakers… or as a subset of any two or three of us in complementary C-suite disciplines. Simply contact any one of us to discuss your organization’s objectives and how we might develop and deliver a high-impact program!

You can visit our individual media pages (under the “Media” tab) to view a representative selection of the types of topics we deliver — and we would be delighted to create a customized program that will exceed your expectations. Below you’ll see just a few of the many testimonials we have received.

Jan Melnik

“Simply outstanding!” (Social Media Job-search Strategies, Newington Public Library, Connecticut, April 2012)

“Hands down, the best program I’ve ever attended.” (Careers Conference 2012: University of Wisconsin, Madison, Wisconsin, January 2012)

Kim Batson

“Kim was one of the highest rated speakers at our conference. The information and insight she presented on how IT executives need to build a personal brand was thought provoking and inspiring, and her deep experience in the field and top notch presentation skills sealed her popularity with the audience. I’d recommend her for any technology executive engagement.” – Anne McCrory, Conference Chair, CIO Decisions Conference, Editor-in-Chief, CIO Decisions Magazine.

“Kim Batson is a highly talented and extremely knowledgeable speaker who is able to fully captivate an audience with her enthusiasm, and rivet their attention on the subject at hand. She radiates such a positive attitude that she is able to easily take charge and have the crowd involved and excited about the topic and she is able to make them more open and willing to learn. I have enjoyed watching her speak and found that the time passed so quickly, the session was up before I was ready to leave! I think I could have easily listened to her for another 2 hours. I also know that Kim radiates this same enthusiasm, professionalism, and solid knowledge about her subjects even when she is not in front of a crowd. I consider her a true gem and would travel many miles, if necessary to hear her speak again.” – Tracy M. Parish, CPRW, President / CareerPlan, Inc.

“Kim personally engages her audiences with a vibrant and welcoming presentation style. She seamlessly weaves theory, stories, case studies, and interactive activities with practical applications that elevates participant learning. Kim truly lives her brand of delivering “Innovative Career and Communication Strategies.” – Murray A. Mann, President, Global Strategies Group and Co-Author, Barron’s The Complete Job Search Guide for Latinos.

“An expert in her profession and industry leader, Kim Batson makes any topic come alive with her enthusiasm, energy and dynamic presentation style.” – Louise Garver, President, Career Directions, LLC

Cindy Kraft

“If you are looking for a speaker who will give honest and pragmatic advice – even if it might be painful to hear – I highly recommend the CFO Coach. Cindy is an expert at the strategic career planning for financial executives, especially in the areas that financial executives tend to struggle with, like branding. She gets to the brutal truth when she needs to, but always does so with grace, charm, and a wonderful sense of humor. Inviting her to speak on our panel was one of the best decisions the CFO Roundtable made this year.” Jack McCullough

Eval comments from the CFO Core Concerns Conference Roundtable, June 2011, Chicago, Illinois …

“Should have been a full pre- or post-conference workshop.”

“Practical suggestions, high energy – Cindy is a person that I would want to know.”

“Excellent and very useful!”

Beverly Harvey

“Beverly takes you through a process that makes you think through what value and leadership you offer a potential employer beyond your essential skills. This is valuable for interview preparation but most importantly to position your job search for the best fit opportunities.” – Shaun Heelan

“I am happy to tell you that the consultant position I have been working on has turned into a reasonable job offer. It took about four months, but hooray! Thank you for all your great advice.” – Jennifer Warren

“Good news! I got the full-time development job that I was hoping to get. The guidance you gave me was very important. I realized I wasn’t doing an adequate job of projecting a confident, professional, and somewhat assertive demeanor, either in my resume, or in my day-to-day interactions. I’ve used the things I learned from you not only in this job search, but also in the marketing of my freelance skills, which has been going quite well.” – Lesley M.

“You are absolutely the best! The reason I have been so late in responding is that I am involved in so many interviews that I barely have time to breath.” – Rick Carreon

“The Platinum Search Program gave me countless tools and resources to help with my search. In addition, Beverly constructed a well defined path for getting you to the job you are looking for with several additional tools to keep you on track. I can’t imagine where I would be without all of the guidance, tools, and resources that Beverly has given me. There has rarely been a time that I didn’t look forward to starting the day jumping into my search mode because Beverly has put so many options in my path. As you get to know Beverly you quickly realize that she is motivated to help you succeed.” – Brett Moulton
