“I wanted to thank you for a highly successful training seminar. I recognize that asking you to take a 12 hour training program and condense the training into four hours was a lot to ask. You met my expectations. Thank you again for your professionalism and accomplishing the goals of the training seminar.”
Pamela Benitez, Human Resources Manager, PG&E Company

“I have worked with Dr. Kathy Hart for over 10 years. During that time, she has been a significant contributor of education and training as an instructor for seminars, a content expert speaker at symposia and a leader in group projects to serve the ASSE membership. Dr. Hart has always delivered outstanding education and training and receives very positive feedback and strong evaluations from attendees. As she is highly creative and visionary, I frequently look to her to present those new education topics that will give safety professionals the advantage now and in reaching future goals. I am always appreciative of having the opportunity to work with Dr. Hart.”
Trudy Goldman, ARM, Manager, Education and Program Development, American Society of Safety Engineers

I loved your presentation; you looked great, the history of “gap year” was so interesting, your presentation was flawless (NSA member, of course) and your resource list was amazing! I will check out some of the resources and I’m not even thinking of a gap year!”

“Dr. Kathy Hart facilitated a seminar on Public Speaking for our Oakland Rotary Emerging Leader group. Her seminar on “Speaking Dynamics: How to Engage and Energize your Audience” was informative and relevant to our audience. Kathy was a sincere pleasure to work with and a professional throughout the planning process. She worked closely with me to develop the right content for our audience of young professionals and entrepreneurs. We plan on working with her again on other topics surrounding leadership and organizational change.”

The effort you made in preparation, along with your willingness to spend the day with us in advance of your talk, was noticed. You demonstrated an interest that no other outsider has shown in the years we have been engaged in this program. I greatly appreciate it. It was also gratifying to have you incorporate things I had said the day before. An unexpected reinforcement of the message I was attempting to deliver.”
