What Organizers and Attendees are Saying:

Kathy is a rare find. Her empathic approach to women and her ability to get to the root of a problem with viable, practical solutions, make her someone you can trust to provide solid, insightful advice. She engages everyone in the room instantly with her warm personality and keeps them there the entire time.  She was always the speaker people remembered and wanted more of at each of the conferences I produced. I can’t recommend her highly enough.”Suzie Galler, Founder, Esteemed Woman Foundation

“I recently attended Kathy Caprino’s “Breakdown, Breakthrough” training session in Orlando, Florida. Not only did Kathy help me to navigate through the 12 common barriers that I am facing today as a professional woman in the 21st Century workforce, but she also provided practical ways to discriminate useful information from noise. By doing so, I was able to acquire new skills to support overcoming real life scenarios. These real life scenarios involved difficult challenges that defy easy answers. Kathy also provided a one on one follow-up session to help me create an inspiring life plan and vision which included a compelling personal brand that sends a message to others about my “authentic-self”. Kathy’s commitment and passion for this cause is truly inspirational.”  – Selange Roberts, Booz Allen Hamilton

“Kathy a highly engaging speaker, delivering compelling programs as a solo presenter as well as contributing collaboratively to diverse panel discussions. Her expertise lends itself to a wide range of issues and challenges for women today, and her programs are very informative and inspiring – whether covering work/life balance, empowered communication strategies, overcoming challenge, navigating through career and midlife transitions or launching a new career and business.   I highly recommend Kathy as a speaker for women’s groups, professional women’s conferences, and career and entrepreneurial business events for women, on both regional and national levels.” — Marian Cicolello – VP, Programs and Services, CT Women’s Business Development Council
