“Kathryn the Grape came to our school and what an amazing experience it was! She conducted two assemblies for the entire student body, and every grade level was engaged with her positive and empowering message. Kathryn Cloward had the students and teachers participate in her assembly, and she even had everyone dancing and singing with her. It was quite a sight to see! Kathryn’s message touched on every key point we could have hoped for, including important real life stories about bullying and being responsible for our own choices. Kathryn was a bright, energetic and motivational speaker who was able to connect with students and teachers alike. Kathryn is definitely someone you want your students to know.”
~ Christina Hessom, (former) PTA Liason at Benchley-Weinberger Elementary School

“Our school enjoyed the Kathryn the Grape assembly. It was not only engaging, but the message of treating others fairly and with respect was perfect. Students also enjoyed hearing and learning about how they too can become an author and illustrator some day. Kathryn did a great job, and the students were singing ‘shine shine shine’ all afternoon.”
~ Kelley Rabasco, Principal at La Mesa Dale Elementary School 

“I have had the pleasure of seeing Kathryn speak in public on multiple occasions and recommend her without reservation for any professional panel.  I first saw her leading a session at a women’s conference a few years ago.  She covered subject matter that included complex legal and financial details but did it in an informative and engaging manner that also included inspirational encouragement for others to reach entrepreneurial success.  I then saw her give a reading at a Barnes & Noble Bookstore where she entertained families and answered questions holding everyone’s attention in a challenging environment. Finally, having been impressed with her work and these speaking examples, I invited her to speak for a panel titled, “Understanding the Startup Eco-System in San Diego.”

Kathryn engaged our audience of entrepreneurs and corporate professionals with her tangible and relatable hands-on wisdom gained from her own entrepreneurial business development for over 16 years.  Kathryn knows her stuff, speaks from experience and honestly relates the ups and downs from her road towards astounding business achievements.  She is often humble about her successes, but it is rare to see an entrepreneur achieve her level of success single handedly.

If your group is looking for someone who can speak from experience and provide relatable, tangible, and candid examples of growing professionally and personally, Kathryn is the natural fit. I am confident your audience will appreciate her memorable presentation as much as ours did.”

“Kathryn Cloward takes the meaning of her name to a pristine level—epitomizing her clarity, intuition and strength as she delivers her message to others. I am not surprised that Kathryn means “pure” and Cloward means “sharp-witted” and “strong”! I first met Kathryn when she presented at a Moms in Business conference in San Diego, California. I was scheduled for her first workshop, but was so riveted by her delivery that I quickly changed my schedule to include her second session. As I listened to Kathryn’s passion for her business and her need to share with others so that they, too, can achieve unimaginable goals, I realized that her pureness and clarity—a quality not found in many business owners—helped her to go beyond limits. Yes, Kathryn had achieved a multitude of tangible goals in her business, but her business relationships placed her on solid footing throughout. Likewise, the sharp-witted manner in which Kathryn relayed her experiences revealed that business should not only be about the numbers but also about how we must form solid relationships—business and personal. Last but not least, Kathryn Cloward is unequivocally synonymous with strength. She is a risk taker—mentally and physically. The escapades she shared—bungee-jumping, running a marathon, hiking the top of a half dome, and more—were not just about physical endurance; they were about relaying to the audience what could be achieved when a mental state is aligned with a goal. It was a message I took with me that day—I can’t only physically be in my business; I must mentally prepare each day with success in mind. Kathryn’s energy gave me, even at 61, the mindset that nothing is impossible! Thank you, dear Kathryn!”
