“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.”

“Kathy was the opening keynote speaker at the 11th International CHARGE Syndrome Conference. It's difficult sometimes when planning conferences to find just the right speaker for your audience. This can be especially true when you have a room full of families whose children who have gone through so much in their lives, many of whom have had at least twenty surgeries, experience both vision and hearing loss and live with many other serious and ongoing medical issues. You worry if the message will come across okay, if the families will connect with the speaker, or even if humor is the right way to go. After listening to and watching the audience during Kathy's performance and reading through all of our conference evaluations after the conference, any worries I might have had completely melted away. Families, professionals and individuals with CHARGE syndrome themselves LOVED her, crying and laughing throughout the performance, pleading with us to bring her back again in the future and resoundingly letting us know that her talk was an incredible way to kick off our conference. Kathy's humor, her story and her message about celebrating abilities was a monster hit with our crowd and we are so thrilled that she could come and share her story with us.”
