We have engaged Catarina on two occasions and feel that she is very knowledgeable, professional and well prepared.

Thank you very much for being a moderator at the team leadership workshop on Wednesday! You led the group to a result and it felt really good! I also appreciate that you were so responsive as to the participants. I hope we have the opportunity to cooperate again!
Catarina showed great professionalism when we employed her as moderator for Rakeldagen 2018. She was structured, friendly and supportive with many good advice back to us clients before our event, which refined the end experience for the better.
Catarina piloted us through our two days' conference with 500 participants. It felt safe both before and during the conference. Catarina is very easy to work with. Prior to the conference she was responsive and contributed greatly to the planning, she was very well prepared, curious and genuinely interested. Catarina asked wise questions to the speakers and managed to involve the audience. And Catarina lives as she learns: She took the train from Malmö to Skellefteå, 14 hours!
