“Your keynote speech left all our employees leaving knowing that we can overcome anything thing and the best is yet to come. What a gift to give our company. Everyone is still talking about it. You made me look G-R-E-A-T! Thanks.”
Holly Teutemacher / Kellogg
“Inviting Kathy Buckley to be our Annual Conference keynote this year was one of the best decisions we could've made as a Board! Words like mesmerizing, transformative and empowering come to mind, but don't come close to describing the impact she had on us! Experiencing the tearful emotion of her raw honesty mixed with roaring laughter in her presentation was amazing. Coming away from her presentation inspires you to be a better person, to do more, to reach deeper”
Kelly Hartman, M.A. President & CEO. Insights Consulting, Inc.
“I want to thank you for a wonderful job last week. Your comments were inspiring. All of the staff is still talking about the importance of making choices. Anyone who was in the room will never be the same. It has renewed my energy level. I hope our paths cross again someday my friend.”
Carl W. Desch Jr., Chief of Staff & Chief Administrative Officer Goldman Sachs & Co.
“Thank you so much for your presentation! It was the Best conference keynote I have ever seen. In review of the evaluation, you were a HUGE hit! I can't thank you enough.”
Laura Lamb, Ohio Rehabilitation Association



“"It was such a joy and privilege to meet you. Thank you for coming to our Convention and for being you. You made me laugh and cry all within a few minutes. You were warm and genuine. You're the kind of person I want to hang out with all day long. Thank you for your time and your openness. Your keynote speech at our 2015 CAPED Convention was bold, inspiring, and of course wildly entertaining. Kathy, you fearlessly addressed and joked about sensitive topics faced by people with disabilities without ever veering from your central tenet of looking at the heart of all people, not their outer appearance. Present throughout all of your humor and somewhat irreverent wit is an invitation to question accepted social norms, and remember that all people are created equal."”
~ Denise Simpson, M. Ed., Director, Disability Support Services, President, CAPED School of Continuing Education
