Ross Lambert, Digital Solutions Group

 

Kathryn is an exceptionally gifted speaker who easily captures her audience with her natural positive, inspiring energy. I found her talk very motivational, whilst being down to earth. Kathryn creates a wonderful atmosphere. And her use of story telling, music, passion and humour will touch your soul.

Marc Pop, Entrepreneur

 

Kathryn was truly engaging and captivated her audience at all levels. Her message was thorough and her style was dynamic. As well as her Keynote Address, Kathryn also ran an energised hands on workshop to give the students practical tools and techniques to use in their lives. As I talked with the students at the conclusion of the convention, the speaker that they most quoted and referred to was Kathryn. I have worked with adolescents for the past 35 yrs and recommend Kathryn for your conference.

Tim Hawkins, Chair Youth Convention, National Speakers Association 2009 & 2010

 

I was recommended Kathryn from one of my Executive Committee, as a speaker for our Chamber Members. She came to our venue with vibrant enthusiasm, warm, abundant knowledge that she genuinely wanted to share. She is a lovely person with a passionate delivery of how to develop ‘Confidence’. Many Members commented on her approachable manner and I would recommend her anytime. Thanks Kathryn, we thoroughly enjoyed having you at our Event.

Kirstie White – Vice President – Narrabeen and Districts Chamber of Commerce.

 

Love your opening. Love story telling woven with a message. Great pace and style. Clear and concise.

Kirsty Spraggon, Speaker

 

Kathryn’s presentation resonated with me on so many levels.  She used a blend of humour and heart felt stories to connect and inspire us to develop our self esteem, self belief and confidence. I then went on to have some one on one coaching with her, which I found very beneficial. So do yourself a favour and book her to speak at your next event.

TRAINING

Kathryn worked with our U22 women’s basketball team for the 2009 season instilling self belief in themselves and each other. It was such a positive exercise seeing the "Team" come together at finals time winning their quarter final, semi and grand final against all odds from fifth position. The girls bonded so well under pressure and used the tools that Kathryn had taught them to stay positive and win the 2009 state championship flag. If you have the chance to work with Kathryn, I say go for it!

Brad Dalton, Dual Olympian, MWBA coach

 

I have had only two sessions with Kathryn and I have to say it changed my life. My outcome for the sessions was to equip myself with techniques and strategies to change my way of thinking, and empower me to be in “peak mental condition” for my auditions. Kathryn was absolutely amazing in showing me exactly where I had gone off track in the past. Thank you so very much Kathryn. I’m forever grateful!!

Judit Lorincz, Opera Singer

 

Kathryn has driven ME to believe in MYSELF. Taking the steps to follow my dreams is really simple with Kathryn’s guidance, whether it’s through her personally or by listening to her Positive Ways to Transform your Day CD.

I would highly recommend Kathryn and her talents to anyone, she’s truly inspirational.

Kaisey Johnston

 

If you get the opportunity to work with Kathryn, I say GO FOR IT! I was lacking a sense of direction and had lost confidence in my abilities as a performer. Using the skills and techniques I learnt in our sessions, I successfully auditioned for the 2nd Series of SYTYCD, and unlike last year, sailed through to the Top 100. To top if off, I then got a contract to perform in a major musical so took that instead. The most important things I got out of our sessions was to let go of my limiting beliefs, manage my pre-audition nerves, set up exactly how I want my day to go, and believe in myself and my abilities. I can’t thank Kathryn enough for what she’s given me!

Karlee Misipeka, Performer

 

I have known Kathryn Orford for many years – initially as a highly successful dance teacher, and more recently as a ‘Peak Performance Coach’. I employed her services this year for our full time dance students as I felt the techniques and tools that Kathryn was promoting would be highly beneficial for my students and would complement my teaching philosophies well. In my opinion it is equally as important for a dancer to be in optimum mental state as it is optimum physical shape.

Kathryn developed a concise program for my full time students that was interactive and inspiring, and gave them the tools to assist them mentally to clarify, focus and achieve their dreams and goals. I thank Kathryn for the positive influence and effects she has had with my students and for her always positive and enthusiastic manner.

Tanya Pearson, Principal, Tanya Pearson Classical Coaching Academy

 

Kathryn started Peak Performance Coaching my Manly Warringah Representative basketball team in June 2009, and I really found her sessions helpful. Her enthusiastic and exciting approach enabled our team to recognize weaknesses in our basketball ability and in our self-confidence. She taught us ways to drown out negative voices, believe in our abilities and to channel that into our games. Even though we’d played together for years, Kathryn was able to bond our team so that we trusted each other on the court, which was the ingredient that really pushed us over the line in winning the State Championship.

Kathryn is a lovely and inspiring lady and I feel so privileged to have worked with her. Thanks Kathryn!

Ellie Martin

 

Kathryn  has helped my daughter get through an incredibly tough time when, after a horrific accident on a basketball court, she ended up with a very badly broken arm and told she may never play again. Kathryn’s sessions backed up by her CD’s (which my daughter left on repeat ALL night), gave my daughter the strength to not only come back and play basketball, but to look at situations and turn them around to a positive note. We love what your doing Kathryn, and I hope more families gain as much joy as we did from your work. Thanks for helping us.

Llewena and Zale Binge

 

Kathryn has helped me to bring my motivation for basketball back. I was a bit off track in my games for a while, and was losing my motivation and confidence. Kathryn had a chat to me and also gave me an exercise to do at home. It really helped me. My game the following week was so much better. Thank you.

Sienna Nisavic

 

My 11 year old daughter Siena has been playing rep basketball for the last 3 years, a game she really loves. This season has been a tough one and she was spending more and more time on the bench, with her confidence visibly dropping and her game suffering as a result. After just one short session with Kathryn, there was a marked difference in her mental attitude and her physical game. She’s since had a group session with Kathryn involving the whole team and the difference is huge; you can sense it even before she steps onto the court. Thanks Kathryn, I think what you do is inspiring.

Carolyn Nisavic

 

I highly recommend attending one of Kathryn’s Workshops. It changed my life in a thousand and one ways. One thing that I have noticed is that I began walking with more confidence after I graduated from the programme. Every detail of the course has been engraved into my mind. It has done me the world of good. Thanks Kathryn!!
