Speaking | Press Room

Appropriately irreverent. Inspiring action. 

Catherine Morgan is an engaging speaker who draws her audience in with illustrative stories, case studies, and humor. Her talks include tips to create the right mindset for success, and actionable techniques that professionals can immediately use in their career, business, or life. She is not afraid to poke fun at herself – or the fears we all face.

Whether conducting an intimate workshop, speaking to a large group, or doing a media interview, Catherine generates enthusiasm and engagement. She also is comfortable fielding the tough questions.

Catherine is a natural, conversational speaker who consistently receives rave reviews for her talks and presentations.

Catherine Morgan knows her stuff and seasons it with a witty, conversational presentation style that engages and holds your attention. The content for her presentation on business blogging and E-newsletters was practical, useable and voluminous without being ponderous. In a new world full of “experts,” Catherine is more interested in helping your business flourish than being part of the club. She really cares about the people she serves. The next time she presents, don’t miss it. It’s worth the time. You’ll get more out of one presentation from her than you’ll get from a dozen convoluted, self-promotional books. Catherine doesn’t take herself seriously, but she takes her work very seriously. What a refreshing combination. ~Rick A., IL

CURRENT TALKS FOR CAREER TRANSITION 

While there are a number of speakers on the Chicago area networking group circuit, Catherine is a bit different. Her experience of having “been there and done that” has given her a refreshingly pragmatic perspective. I found her direct answers to questions from the audience to be enlivening.

CURRENT TALKS FOR ENTREPRENEURS

25-minute talk: Off the Cliff – Is There a Net? Getting Your Business Started

Catherine gave me practical tips on how to use social media to build relationships with other people in my industry as well as with people that have influence with my target market. Catherine was down to earth and very knowledgeable at the same time. You can tell that Catherine is excellent at building relationships at all levels and it was inspiring for me to hear her talk. ~ Ken C., IL

What I realized was that I missing a huge opportunity to expand my network in a whole new way. I could engage influencers just like people were engaging me. Catherine’s content was so fresh and relevant I felt myself wanting to get started even before she was finished. Thanks for the inspiration Catherine! ~ Cathy M., IL
