SRI International

About the SRI International Project

SRI International needed help both re-positioning the IT department to the rest of the organization as well as highlighting the benefits a new system would be delivering to all users.

Kathryn led this effort with groundwork research for evaluating the current positioning of IT and the attitudes towards the new system. Key messaging was developed that aligned with new IT initiatives and also communicated the advantages each type of user would gain from the new system.

The project was successfully deployed and SRI International was pleased with the results.

Kathryn Gorges is a joy to work with. I have always felt deeply heard and supported in my marketing intentions. I can count on her to do the project really well, beautifully, and in a timely fashion. I owe so much of my professional image to her expertise.”

—Lynda Chaikin, ThetaHealing Master, Instructor and Practitioner, Merciful Heavens ThetaHealing

As program chair for Silicon Valley Coach Federation, I engaged Kathryn to present a seminar on personal branding. All of her interactions with me prior to the event were to the highest standards of professionalism, so my expectations of her presentation were high. However, her presentation far exceeded my high expectations. She was clear, accessible, personable, knowledgeable, and informative. Her exercises were not “pro forma,” but rather wonderfully evocative and useful. Even her slides reflected an uncommon skill in communicating the essence, in complete harmony with her verbal presentation. I highly recommend Kathryn as a speaker, and have a strong suspicion that her consulting reflects similar qualities. I’d gladly have her speak for me again!”

—Dr. Joel Orr, Program Chair Silicon Valley Coach Federation

Kathryn masters the mysterious internet for you. In working with Kathryn, the best of you will be pulled out and she will magically transform your understanding of your strengths and weave them amongst the sites and tie it all together so your internet involvement is comprehensive and truly productive. I love working with her positive energy! She makes work – fun!”
