“Katherine was a recent presenter at our inspirational speaker series. She brought both our creative and business teams to the edges of our seats listening to her passionate storytelling. Not only were we inspired by her life’s journey, but we walked away wanting to befriend her – she was charismatic and cool.”
- Sarah Szeflinski, Human Resources Manager, Smart Design
“To say that Katherine’s speech was awe-inspiring would be a true understatement. It was a life-changing experience for me. The part of her speech about her not wanting to be “cured” of the condition, because she wouldn’t know who she was without it, was the most resonating part of the entire talk. I speak for everyone at Atria Books when I say that the experience was truly educational and extremely enlightening.”
- Saikat Saha, Digital Marketing Manager, Atria Books
“Katherine Preston has a unique and powerful voice, and a compelling message that is informative and uplifting. She speaks with an elegance and eloquence that identifies solutions and strategies to combat the day to day challenges we face in reaching our personal and professional growth. Against a plethora of negative noise, she is a delight. She helped change the way we think as an organization and the way we deliver our mission – there can be no higher praise than that.
- Peter Wilderotter, President and CEO of the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation.
“Katherine is an engaging speaker, and she is passionate and generous about sharing the story of her life as a person who stutters…her story was moving, inspiring, courageous, validating, and captivating, delivered by Ms. Preston with warmth, humor, and humanity.”
- Dr. Ann D. Jablon, Professor and Chair, Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, Marymount Manhattan College, New York, NY
“Katherine life’s journey with regard to stuttering is fascinating. She took the emphasis away from the teaching techniques and redirected it toward listening to the client….a point that unfortunately can be lost on beginning clinicians as they struggle with mastering the mechanics of how to “instruct” clients. In sum, she was authentic, charming, and cool.”
- Charles Goldman, Adjunct Assistant Professor and Clinical Faculty, Brooklyn College, Brooklyn, NY.
