Whether she's working with a small group or an audience of many, Kate's creative delivery of material truly resonates with participants, leaving them with new ways to apply the learning on a multitude of levels.”

Cait Falck
Associate Human Interests Director

“The workshop conducted by Kate Roeske for my national United Way team, Step away from the Power-Point, really hit the mark. It gave the participants new skills and more confidence to lead the room from a place of personal strength, regardless of experience level. The workshop was also a great team-building experience: the group had fun, learned what colleagues saw as powerful within them, as well as how to support and rely upon each other when co-presenting. Kate was an enthusiastic role model and coach. A week later, they had the opportunity to successfully apply these lessons at our national conference of more than 2000 attendees. Kate would have been proud!”
