WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
“Ms. Katen and her team have continued to produce top-notch workshops for the professional development team. We appreciate that KATEN CONSULTING is open to tailoring each business etiquette training to meet the diverse needs of various student populations. They truly listen to what we want to accomplish and collaborate with us to assure that our goals are being met. The staff at KATEN CONSULTING communicate in a timely and professional manner, and their attention to detail is noteworthy.”
“Ensuring our customers get the highest level of support across all customer facing organizations is our top priority at Glowpoint…As a result, training is critical to our success. Laura and the staff at Katen Consulting designed a program tailored to our needs…Katen’s training was interactive and engaging, utilizing real scenarios and examples that the employees could relate to. As a result of the success of the program, we are looking to expand the curriculum and incorporate the training created by Laura and her team, into a new employee training curriculum for all employees.”
I am a huge fan of Laura and Katen Consulting. I first met Laura through the Business Council of Westchester; since that time she has helped mentor me in the arts and nuances of public speaking and marketing myself in order to grow my business. Her follow-up is prompt and professional, and her attention to detail is second to none. Laura receives my highest level of recommendation.
“At Villanova University’s School of Business, we present over 80 career programs each year dedicated to professional development for our undergraduates. Villanova colleagues have commented that “Katen is the best etiquette trainer we have seen, and we see a lot of them!” Katen Consulting has readily won our loyalty in etiquette training because they provide superior service, with a strategic approach, so our audience leaves feeling equipped for success.”
“Laura and Katen Consulting provided tremendous service for us. We learned we were one of three finalists for a prestigious national award, and that I was able to deliver a 10 minute, ‘TED-style’ presentation. Other speakers at the event included high profile individuals like Henry Kissinger and T. Boone Pickens. I reached out to Laura, and she was able to re-arrange her other commitments to work with me. Even in such a short time, we made tremendous improvement in both the content and style of delivery. And we were named first runner-ups in the competition! I recommend Laura for her dedication, competence, and results.”
“Laura went above and beyond required time and agenda and spent additional hours with Management Associates where she identified a need for improvement. Laura and her team very easy and efficient to work with, excellent delivery and service overall.”
Laura Katen was truly amazing with the NCL Fairfield Chapter Ticktockers at our 2017-2018 Kick Off Meeting tonight! I have never experienced a group of teenage girls that engaged for ten minutes, let alone an hour! You were magical and awe inspiring! Thank you!
KATEN spoke to the over 100 young women and mothers about making a positive first impression. She shared key nuances to keep in mind as they navigate presenting themselves, interacting, and communicating now and as they pursue their aspirations.
Thank you for the wonderful presentation on Sunday. What an inspiring way to Kickoff our year! I don’t need to tell you it made quite the impression on the young (and not so much) members 🙂
KATEN spoke to 100 student leaders as part of Manhattanville’s Student Leadership Training Program. She shared key leadership traits and strategies for reflecting key characteristics that would help to distinguish the students and progress their success on campus and beyond.
KATEN spoke to over 100 women at the DC event. She facilitated this event that included formalized networking, strategy session, panel Q&A, and a half-day Executive Presence for Women training. KATEN, who facilitated the one-day event, is pictured with panelists from the event.
Good morning Laura,
Thank you, Thank You, Thank You! That’s all I could say. You don’t know what you did yesterday to our group but you relieved me of so much pressure. You indeed echoed all my suggestions to the group about our presentation and much more… Thank you so much for the feedbacks and you did it so simply with humor and passion. You are an exceptional and a phenomenal person! Thank you also for the patience you exuded and the friendship you showed while listening to us all and answering our numerous questions, It meant the world to me. You know after our session with you yesterday afternoon, I was so excited that I got to hear you speak to our group because you did pave a way for everyone to thrive. So from the bottom of my heart, I say thank you very much.
It was so nice to meet you yesterday. I learned a great deal from your class and look forward to practicing what we learned during this new chapter in my life.
I want to thank you for all the help you gave me and my team yesterday—we definitely feel much more on track to prepare a great presentation now! (We met today and have been implementing your feedback.)
