See what travel and tourism professional say about Catherine and Customized Management Solutions
President & CEO Dubois Hospitality Group (DHG Tourism Consulting)
Catherine is charming, witty and professional; her knowledge, public speaking skills and ability to engage and enlighten are unmatched. I first met Catherine at a recent NTA Convention and she is the reason my attitude towards social media and social networking is changing. Catherine has been fundamental in assisting me with planning Dubois Hospitality Group’s growth in the area of social networking for professional business purposes. I highly recommend Catherine and welcome all future opportunities to work with her and be enlightened yet again.
Owner, Hanns Ebensten Travel, Inc. & Alyson Adventures, Inc.
I have seen Catherine give presentations at three travel industry conferences, and I have learned more each time. She brings a good balance of presenting new information about social media, and of positioning various social media sites in a way that helps me select only the sites that will offer the best value for my particular needs.
Vice President of Sales at Avoya Travel
Catherine provides good content in a unique way that the audience connects to. She has the credibility and the presentation ability to impact travel agents and make a difference!
Former Vice President NACTA
As Vice President of NACTA, I asked Catherine to present a webinar on social media to our members. It was was so well received that we asked her back to present several more in our mastermind webinar series, as well as our technology training, and seminars-at-sea courses. She consistently garnered positive feedback from our nationwide membership and always had good turnout for her courses both online and in person. I would highly recommend her to any organization looking for a well organized, speaker with timely topics and well researched content.
Membership Services Manager at Tourism Calgary
It was a pleasure working with Catherine – a professional speaker that was enthusiastic and engaged the audience. Catherine worked in partnership with Tourism Calgary to deliver a workshop on Social Media geared to the tourism and hospitality sector. She motivated participation to gain feedback to bring relevant information to those in attendance. Her knowledge, experience and presentation of relevant examples were beneficial. Her creativity and sense of humor made her a pleasure to work with. I look forward to working with her in the future.
President & COO ATIA (Alaska Travel Industry Association)
Catherine was very engaging and professional. She took the time to listen to our goals and then speak with “real Alaskan” businesses so she could customize her presentation to fit our needs. She was very effective and clearly demonstrated the depth of her knowledge in a very approachable way. I know that those who attended her presentations walked out with more knowledge and confidence regarding the travel trade.

Your recent webinar… was FANTASTIC! I learned so much it is unbelievable. I took another FB training last week but I have to say this one was the best!
Time to Travel Tours
I need to let you know how much I am enjoying the social media training! You break each topic down into understandable pieces, you provide “challenges” that give us hands on learning opportunities and you make these new lessons FUN.
Owner/Travel Consultant at Play Your Way Travel LLC
Catherine was one of the speakers/trainers at the recent NACTA Tech Fest event in Chicago. Catherine’s effective style of training was engaging and “hands on”, which allowed for optimal understanding and implementation for her students! The information I learned from Catherine was invaluable to my travel business. I would highly recommend anyone who feels that their business would benefit from social media, to seek Catherine’s professional expertise!
Vice President at Sports Leisure Vacations
Catherine “gets it” when it comes to social networking, both from the perspective of cultural significance, as well as the potential business opportunities it offers. She not only knows, but is also able to explain the operational nuts and bolts. Since attending her seminar on this subject last month and receiving her extraordinary supporting e-documents, I’ve stepped up my Facebook interaction to include business applications (a unique listing for my company is under construction), written and posted my first two blogs and today have accessed Linked In for the first time.

I have learned a lot from your seminars and find them invaluable. Thank you for my personal consultation which is helping to take my marketing to the next level.
