Catherine has worked and spoken in all fifty states in the United States, numerous parts of Canada and Mexico, and in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. While her audiences are diverse, they all share one common approach: they care.
Conference / Convention
Catherine enjoys interacting with large audiences and is comfortable serving as a keynote or regular speaker at conferences and conventions. As a former campaign speaker and Assistant Secretary of Housing, she has experience speaking to audiences of 5,000 or more. Over the past few years, she has regularly spoken at investment conferences with audiences of 500 to 1,000.
Lectures are our most popular format, typically with audiences of 250 to 1,000 people. Great lectures work when they are a dynamic part of an ongoing conversation. For example, a local sponsor may be holding a lecture series about the economy and the role of finance and money. The local sponsor markets the lecture to their list and Solari markets it to our e-mail list. Prior to the event, the local sponsor schedules Catherine for a series of radio shows in the regional market to discuss the material in her upcoming speech. This fills the audience with people who we and/or the local sponsor are already in cahoots with who are interested in and enthusiastic about the topic.
The lecture format allows for a question-and-answer period. This may be followed by a reception or a workshop on the same or a subsequent day. Arrangements may be made for the slide presentations and/or the audio to be available to the audience online.
Catherine's workshops are typically 3-to-4-hour add-ons to an introductory lecture. They are ideal for audiences of 100 or less who want to explore issues and actions in greater detail.
Catherine has done hundreds of talk radio shows since 1999, engaging with widely diverse audiences around the world.
Catherine loves speaking at festivals. You might think that great music and great food detract from a serious conversation like money. Not so. When we're relaxed, it is much easier to go into "the invention room" with Catherine to discern and reengineer the global financial system.
Fundraising / Promotional Event
Is your organization or enterprise committed to helping individuals, families, and communities build real wealth? If your goals and values are compatible with Solari's, Catherine is delighted to help you build real wealth, too. If you are in a market where we have a sizeable audience, we encourage you to contact us to help you achieve a successful event that will raise attention and/or resources for your projects and campaigns. Organizing and promoting such an event is a way for individuals interested in creating a Solari Circle to generate their initial funds for local investment.
As a Wall Street Banker and Assistant Secretary of Housing, Catherine has had extensive interaction with financial and corporate media, including network news focused on financial and current events. During litigation with the federal government on behalf of the Hamilton Securities Group, Inc., Catherine declined participation with corporate and TV media, doing only occasional community cable and Internet TV shows. With Hamilton's litigation successfully concluded and the growth of online video, Catherine looks forward to doing TV shows on financial and economic development matters.
Private Circle or Meeting
When Catherine is invited to do a lecture or lecture and workshop, the sponsor or a Solari Action Network member will hold a private meeting or dinner as a third part of an overall event. This is the perfect occasion for smaller groups who have questions or want to discuss action options that are more appropriate in a private, intimate session.
Economic Development Advisory Event
Catherine is occasionally invited to combine her presentation with an in-depth look at the economics and financial challenges of a particular area or enterprise.
