Testimonials

“We were delighted to include Katherine Reynolds Lewis and the important topics of discipline and self-regulation in our 2018 Discovery Museum Speaker Series. Katherine presented an engaging and dynamic talk to a sold-out room of more than 200 audience members—parents, teachers, caregivers, and interested community members. She also gave a great deal of her time to those guests who wanted to have a book signed or ask a question after the presentation. In our follow-up survey, audience members described Katherine as 'candid,' 'well-versed,' and an 'excellent speaker.' Coordination of the talk was fluid and seamless; it was a pleasure to work with Katherine and her team.” – Marie Beam, chief development officer, Discovery Museum, Acton, Mass.

“Katherine Lewis is an engaging speaker with insights into today’s kids’ behavior and what’s underneath. She provided real answers and tools for both educators and parents in our community. Katherine’s intelligence and solid research as well as her humility and humor allowed her to connect with diverse audiences. If you have the opportunity to hear her speak, it is worth your time!” – Amy Lovell, president, REDgen

“Thank you so much for the enlightening conversation with our MCCPTA Presents last night! You are a wonderful speaker! I heard so many rave reviews from the attendees and I know I personally walked away with so many more 'tools' in my parent tool box.” – Erin Clegg, vice president, programs, Montgomery County Council of Parent-Teacher Associations

“Thank you for providing our keynote presentation for the alumni group of Wisconsin’s Governor’s Trailblazer Awards for Women in Business and the members of the Wisconsin Women’s Council. Your presentation was entertaining, informative and hit just to right tone for an audience of CEOs. Your impressive knowledge of best practices from leading corporations, across industries and across the country, went a long way to shift perceptions of skepticism for addressing caregiving as a workplace issue (too costly and disruptive) to the potential for “win-win.” Your knowledge of the business world and pressures on business owners gave you a credibility with the employer community that can be hard to find on this issue. And, candidly, a potentially uncomfortable topic, your stories and anecdotes kept them laughing and engaged.  I was also very pleased that the presentation generated a lively discussion with (and among) the audience. Best of all, I continue to hear from attendees who were inspired by your address and are now thinking differently about ways to engage their workforce on this issue. Thank you again for shining new light on this topic with your knowledge, research and amusing anecdotes. I hope we can bring you back to Wisconsin as we continue this discussion with employers across our state.” – Christine Lidbury, executive director, Wisconsin Women’s Council
