Run, don’t walk!”

So if you are looking to improve your skills as a speaker or trainer, I personally highly recommend working with LionSpeak and attending a workshop.”

Katherine shows a tremendous level of professionalism in all she does and particularly when it comes to customizing her approach to her client’s need. I have worked closely with Katherine through the years and not only is she good at what she does, I consider her as one of my own mentors. Katherine will leave your group inspired and confident to take their speaking and coaching to the next level. At the end of the day, Katherine build trust and helps her students do the same with their audiences.”

All this to tell you that at the Synchrony Financial Sales Meeting, thanks in large part to your coaching, I won Pacesetter for 2016 for CareCredit and I want to thank you for being a part of that honor. I’m thankful for your input and encouragement.”
—Bobby Richardson, Practice Development Manager, CareCredit

“After our private coaching sessions, the six presentations I gave in September and October were not home runs but instead GRAND SLAMS! (one of the surgeon’s actual words!)  Every one of them loved it and I’m starting to gain traction with individual clients and their practices.  There’s still much work to be done but your coaching was crucial in helping me think through my presentations AND have the confidence to knock it out of the park.“

Training Skills:


“Katherine Eitel and The Lioness Training 2 Changed My Life! A huge statement, I know, but it is true. The 2 days I spent at this training were a catalyst for the significant professional changes I made afterwards. The journaling was key… if Katherine tells you to go sit and write, look deep and do it. I have gone back several times over the last year and re-read what I wrote. Some of it still moves me to tears. Take the chance and make the investment in yourself. You just never know what is waiting to come to life!”

—Shari Kilmer, Kimball Consulting, Inc

“’Fire hosing’ the audience or client office becomes a thing of the past when you let the participants discover many of these good ideas on their own….Too much information may be as bad as not enough. ‘Discovery’ is the Lioness Way! Just DO IT! you will be glad you did. Besides if you give the client ALL to work on in one day in office, you have no reason to return to the same clients. Chunking the situations gives you tons of follow up visit materials…You win, the practice wins and the information sticks!
—Linda Miles

—Robyn Ramirez, Productive Dentist Academy

“I love my job and I love dentistry but I was struggling with the leadership part. I have never had any training really, just learned on my own and boy, could I use some help!  I spent only one short session listening to you at the Hinman Meeting in Atlanta but I came home with such a change in my attitude and outlook.  My team is already sensing some changes in my approach and we are just getting started!  And your effect isn’t just on the professional side but I’ve seen it improve my personal life as well.”
—Karen L., NY
