This is the next blog in the continuing series of interviews with top-echelon and renowned professionals. In this blog, I interview Internationally-Renowned Speaker, Corporate/Executive Coach, Best-selling Author–Cathy Shaughnessy, Partner ShaughnessyHowell Inc. I was fortunate to see Cathy lead two workshops where there was uniform appreciation for the value delivered. This is what prompted this interview. Cathy has great insights into effective communications, making presentations, encouraging initiative, managing change, and more. The lessons are valuable for any IT professional and especially managers.

"When I saw Cathy deliver a presentation at one of our corporate events, I knew she was exactly the right fit for our upcoming conference in Las Vegas. She was energetic, articulate, funny and had a fabulous message. It was just what our group needed. She delivered at our conference and I was right, she was great!"
