What they say...

CATHERINE HAS been supporting us on New Frontiers since 2015. She brings a unique and very valuable pitching methodology which she delivers as both a seminar to the full class or in one-on-one sessions with start-up promoters.
She has a particular skill in getting people relaxed and fluent in delivering their start-up pitches. The simplicity of her approach belies the deep thinking that Catherine has invested in honing her methodology.
She is an expert on the very human challenges of improving communication in business. Her combined experience — with people like us in New Frontiers, her Dragons' Den support work, her media work, and her research on what makes a quality pitch (which resulted in her book) all combine I think to make Catherine probably one of the thought leaders on communication in business in Ireland at the moment. I’m sure she is also up there with the best in Europe.
