What People Say about Cathy Baber:

This letter is my personal recommendation for Cathy Baber. Until just recently, I have been Cathy’s immediate supervisor for several years. I found her to be consistently pleasant, tackling all assignments with dedication and a smile. Besides being a joy to work with, Cathy is a take-charge person who is able to present creative ideas and communicate the practices. She has successfully developed several compliance plans for our companies that have resulted in increased oversight. Though she was an asset to our Compliance office, Cathy was also extraordinarily helpful in other areas of the company. In addition to writing effective training curriculum, Cathy assumed a leadership role in meetings, inspiring and motivating other employees. I highly recommend Cathy for employment. She is a team player and would make a great asset to any organization

I have been very impressed by the level of organization and attention to detail she puts forth in all that she achieves. I've seen her in action both as a facilitator and a training designer. Most recently I witnessed Cathy's strengths and skills as she put together a huge training experience with multiple topics for approximately 150 participants. The morning was organized to the last detail and the participants gave high praise for the experience. Cathy would be an asset to any organization.

Karen Kliszak

Training Manager

Cathy Baber and I recently worked on a project together and she did a fantastic job! She has a natural ability of assessing a situation to determine what resources are needed and where to get them from. She displays a high level of professionalism and is a quick study when learning new things. I would recommend Cathy easily because her work ethic is strong.

Jim Tucci

Brand Manager

I have witnessed Cathy’s proven track record of success with her business clients, partners, and vendors. She is a world class facilitator and has a strong skill set within training design. I have witnessed Cathy’s organizational and planning skills at a recent National Sales conference where she was responsible for single handedly coordinating and facilitating workshops for over 150 attendees. Cathy is a consummate professional; I would certainly recommend her for project and operational roles in the future!

Ben Bailey

Project Manager

Cathy worked on the rollout of a new CRM system for the National Accounts Team. This was a new way of doing business for many of us who worked with alternate systems. Cathy put together training modules and classes for everyone in the division. She incorporated games and group exercises to help everyone enjoy the training and help one another. In addition, she organized one on one conference calls and face to face meetings to ensure a smooth transition and high utilization. She continued to monitor and assist everyone in the group as well as reaching out to those she feels may need a helping hand. Great job on the CRM launch!
