How do you transform your audience?
I transform people's thinking which in turn has a positive impact in every area of their lives. Mindset, Self-esteem, Self-worth, and Self-belief underpin every action and outcome your attendees are currently achieving. Your audience will leave knowing how to: 1. Use the Ancient Japanese Art/Philosophy of Kintsugi to re-connect, re-imagine, reinvent and revitalize the teams they lead as well as their lives in general. 2. Develop (or enhance) their Growth Mindset. 3. Start telling themselves a brand new story about what they, and the teams they lead, are capable of. 4. Re-program their Inner Critic and turn it into their own personal cheer squad. 5. Develop their Emotional Intelligence and People Skills

Why would a booker choose you (sell yourself a bit)?
1. I'm not a one stop pony, I'll be involved before, during and after your event to ensure 100% satisfaction and success. Attendees will leave with easy to implement take-aways that they can use immediately. 2. I've been the most referred to speaker at numerous conferences. 3. Years ago I was suicidal. I refer to that time in my life as "the breaking of me was the making of me, " which ties in beautifully with my theme of the Japanese Art of Kintsugi ie; repairing a broken piece of pottery and making it more beautiful than before it was broken. 3. I'm Australian, so yes I have an Aussie Accent that people here in the US seem to love to listen to. 4. I have a huge track record of creating and leading winning teams in the performing arts as well as the catering industry. 5. My track record.

ADULT TESTIMONIALS "I had the pleasure of MC'ing Kathryn Orford's Presentation at the recent National Speakers Association Conference . 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 wholeheartedly recommend Kathryn to you, your staff or your tribe." BRETT DASHWOOD "Kathryn is a breath of fresh air, a true inspiration. So often those in business are searching for new ideas, new techniques, and new skills, when the real answer to success in business, and indeed our lives is within ourselves. So when you realize that more of the same, brings more of the same, invite Kathryn as your next key note speaker and witness the results as you become encircled with happier more content, more productive, successful people." ROSS LAMBERT - Digital Solutions Group "Kathryn is an exceptionally gifted speaker who easily captures her audience with her natural positive, inspiring energy. I found her talk very motivational, whilst being down to earth. Kathryn creates a wonderful atmosphere. And her use of story telling, music, passion and humor will touch your soul." MARK POP - Entrepreneur "Your presentation was confident, and provided me with the opportunity to reinforce the value of building our self esteem!" Barry McMaster, Matrix Vision, Learning and Change Solutions "Great content and delivery. Hits the buttons!" Brian Sadler, Financial Planner "Your story is incredibly powerful. Your eloquence is truly magnificent. You are a true being of greatness." Sam Lambert, Digital Solutions Group YOUTH TESTIMONIALS "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 students practical tools and techniques to use in their lives. As I talked with the students at the conclusion of the convention, the speaker that they most quoted and referred to was Kathryn. I have worked with adolescents for the past 35 yrs and highly recommend Kathryn for your conference." Tim Hawkins, Chair Youth Convention, National Speakers Association "Just a brief not to say thanks for the Exceptional job you did with our Hogan’s Students. Your workshop on Emotional Intelligence was mentioned by all as one of the best experiences they encountered during the term. You would be interested too, to know that you were mentioned by many of them as one of the most outstanding leaders of the semester. They particularly like your candor and how you demonstrated concern for each of them. They saw you as authentic and someone they felt comfortable following. Hopefully we’ll be able to convince you to come back. Aloha." John Webster, Director Hogan Entrepreneurial Program, Chaminade University "Kathryn approached our school 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 people so often sabotage their potential success through negative self-talk. In her session with our girls she revealed how to relegate this for good. Her presentation was highly inter-active and very memorable and our girls found it powerful. The girls responding 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." Grace Stone, Director of Student Development and Wellbeing Roseville College
