Re-branding: Down the rabbit hole and a new era for this blog

Published by under Executive Presence,Musings

For the past 10 years, I have been writing Kate’s Voice and been honored with a growing, loyal following and recognition by groups such as Global Gurus, as well as many individuals who I respect and admire. I’ve enjoyed the ride.  This year, the decision was made to expand the Vocal Impact coaching practice and create a new website for the company, which has taken some time. Hence, I haven’t posted in a while. We moved the blog, too, though you will notice that it is still here.

“But it’s no use now,” thought poor Alice, “to pretend to be two people! Why, there’s hardly enough of me left to make one respectable person!” —Chapter 1, Down the Rabbit-Hole.

On the new site, the blog’s name is K8sVoice, a catchy title if I do say so myself. Please visit our new website and take a look at our new platform. So, though I shall not pretend to be two people, gradually I will transform this blog into one with a more artistic focus and keep a business focus for the other.

“The best way to explain it is to do it.” —Chapter 3, A Caucus-Race and a Long Tale

There is a new post on K8sVoice focused on authenticity and intention.

“Begin at the beginning,” the King said, very gravely, “and go on till you come to the end: then stop.” —Chapter 12, Alice’s Evidence

Thanks for following this blog and let the (new) adventure begin!

Raise Your Voice! Autistic girl finds hers

Published by under Presence

In September,  I was honored to coach a father/daughter team at TEDx OrangeCoast.  The talk was about their experience with autism.  You will be amazed by their story. The once-silent Leya is now blooming, and has become a vibrant, passionate speaker on behalf of children who are without communication.

The message is one that needs to be heard for as Eyal states, “We are in the midst of a public health crisis.” It is affecting tens of millions of children all over the world.  Leya confirms clearly, that if things keep going as they are today, by 2024, 1 in every 3 families will have a child on the autism spectrum.  However, this video shows that those statistics do not have to be true.  Eyal gives a solid argument for why autism is on the rise, and Leya is living proof of the success of a program that works to counteract the effects of autism.

Right now, they are trying to get 50k online viewers of their talk with the hope that it will qualify to become a featured clip on,  and thus be exposed to hundreds of thousands of people who need to hear this message, the message that autism is treatable.  Please help  promote the clip by raising your voice.  You can do this by viewing, liking, commenting and forwarding this link to interested parties and people in the community.  The clip is being promoted in three different locations.  Here is where you can find it (besides below:)

1., Autism, A Journey of Hope
This is the main TED site. They have a form there for recommending the clip to become a featured clip. If you like the message  and you  think that what they are doing is important,  please fill in that form.

2. Then there is the YouTube version, as you see it below.  It is important for them to have likes and if you could also leave comments, in particularl they are interested in an honest discussion about the idea that autism is treatable. And of course if you like it, please embed it on your facebook page:

3. Last, there is the Mendability page; this is the company that Eyal has formed to give people access to a program to treat autism in the same way that he and his wife were able to help Leya.   The treatment is clinically proven and very affordable.  You can refer people that you think might need the therapy or visit the site if you’d like to learn more about the process.  Here is the link to the video on that site: TEDx – Autism: A Journey Of Hope
