Katherine Kennedy
Affiliated Trainer
Katherine has over two decades of experience helping people of all ages and backgrounds articulate their personal stories.

At SpeechSkills, Katherine offers her newly created Embrace Your Story workshop to help our clients convey who they are, what they do, and why they do it, through the art of personal storytelling.

In 2015, she launched her own presentation and story coaching business, Speaking to What Matters, to help others speak with authenticity and depth in life's most important moments - in both business and personal settings - ranging from TED Talks, to toasts, to formal presentations.

Katherine graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in African American Studies. After serving two years with Teach For America, she spent 20 years at Summer Search, a national nonprofit, helping young people transform what they believe is possible for their futures.

Known for her upbeat attitude and easy laugh, she imbues all that she does with warmth and sincerity. While she has traveled extensively, what she enjoys most is walking on Baker Beach, spending time with her family and friends, and creating meaningful moments for herself and others.
