Biggest Challenge in Journey

Catherine was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma disease – and given 18 months to live – and a maximum of 5 years. After she overcame the condition, she was then struck down with depression and other illnesses – which took 2+ years for her to overcome and get back to a point of where she knew she could continue to do her best.

Rewarding Moment in Business

Back in 2013, Catherine received an unexpected letter advising she was selected as one of 1 of only 30 people in the world recognised as the “Global Certified Speaker Profession”. She has also been a national and international president of professional speaking associations and a Nevin award winner (the highest award for professional speakers as recognised by their peers).
