Ashley Hoffman - SGA Advisor Windermere High School

As soon as Kate began speaking to my students, she quickly captivated my students. She challenged my students on their use of word choice and the impact words can have on others as well as themselves. She encouraged the students to really pay attention to the people they surround themselves with and to be selective in choosing friends who will help bring out the best in them. So many leaders strive to be perfect and she touches on the fact that trying to achieve perfection is exhausting and to find joy in your individual strengths. I guarantee that after hearing Kate speak, the students, advisors, and fellow leaders will leave feeling “like a gladiator.” Kate is funny, unique, and a complete inspiration.

Jesse Cohen - Director, Avalon Middle School

"Kate has been a huge part of our program. She is able to relate to any age, and inspire them to be their best selves. I have seen multiple people leave Kate's talk in a physically and mentally superior state. It has been an absolute pleasure working with Kate in the past, and will continue to hire her again and again."

Kathy Fromer - Executive Director Arizona DECA

Kate Garnes energized our Arizona DECA group with her charm and relatable story.  She is bright, enthusiastic, personable, and positive. Our high school age kids naturally connected with her and  public speaking for Kate is relaxed and easy. She was a pleasure to work with throughout the planning process."

Wendy Cartwright - Ocoee High School Advisor

Kate is full of infectious energy, genuine compassion, and conveys an empowering message that is relatable to a diverse audience. She taught us all to embrace our inner Gladiator

Amy Dubovick - Oakmont High School Advisor

One of my students saw Kate at a national conference, and came back to school really excited and energized by her presentation.  She felt that our students needed to see her, and strongly recommended her for our “Harmony Week” activities.  From my initial email to hosting her presentation, working with Kate was a dream.  She was professional and attentive to my school’s needs.  More importantly, our students really responded to her message.  They loved her energy and her relatability.  I would strongly recommend her to any high school looking for a dynamic, fun, and engaging speaker.

Barry Meneghelli – HOBY Florida Leadership Corporate President

Talking to a group of high school sophomores can very daunting and difficult. Not for Kate. soon as she started her talk, Kate was very relatable, entertaining and totally at ease. By using her own personal experiences as examples, she adeptly showed how it is so very important to critically choose our “tribe” – those people who we really want to spend time with and who will support us and help us to grow. Kate’s message on words is quite simple: use them to build up people, not to break them down. The students loved her enthusiasm and energy.
