Her popular keynote presentation, One Hand Clapping, inspires those who feel paralyzed, personally or professionally. She motivates public, medical and corporate audiences to overcome their paralysis and move to their next level of accomplishment by focusing on what they can do, not what they can’t.

“Ability Awareness” Workshop

take the “dis” out of “disability”

This thought provoking, interactive and fun workshop focuses on ability rather than disability.   Attendees enhance their focus on what employees or potential employees can do rather than what they can’t.

“Ability Awareness and Appreciation before Accommodation” is a wise business move. Kate’s audiences have  fun with her as she challenges prejudice and preconception and demonstrates how those who persist in spite of disabilities tend to develop uncommon creativity, determination, and resourcefulness that can lead to extraordinary contributions in the work place.

This survivor of Locked-in Syndrome is proof of the “Phoenix Syndrome.” Attendees return to work motivated and inspired, with wonderful memories of a great event.
