Kate has many years of experience speaking on success, leadership and careers, as well as her life as a suspense novelist. She has given over a hundred speeches to a variety of groups, including the Massachusetts Women’s Conference and the Harvard Undergraduate Women in Business conference (and ranging in size from 25 to 1,000 people).

Business and Career Talks:

Kate’s speeches offer clear strategies on how to:

  • make the kind of gutsy moves that get you noticed—and promoted
  • unlock your inner leader
  • let go of the good-girl tendencies that may be holding you back
  • ask for the money and opportunities you deserve—and get them
  • learn to focus on the big picture and not just day-to-day tasks
  • become the architect of your own career
  • truly savor your success, rather than simply being caught in the grind


Literary Talks:

Kate has spoken at many libraries and literary conferences about her work as a suspense novelist. She touches on:

  • a writer’s life
  • creativity and where ideas come from
  • starting a writing career late in the game (she was in her 40’s!)
  • balancing writing with a full-time job
