Catherine Byers Breet

Job Search & Career Coaching

Speaker | Author | Recovering Recruiter

Igniting audiences around the world SINCE 2008

She once got caught hiding from an executive VP … and lived to tell about it. 18 years later, Catherine is a highly-sought global speaker with loads of proven success in recruiting, sales, leadership and business growth. From a global high-tech firms in South Africa to soldiers in Kuwait and a packed auditorium in Minneapolis, her message resonates just as well: You CAN love what you do for a living … but it won’t just land in your lap.

No matter what the topic is, you can count on Catherine to deliver the good, the bad and the “Are you kiddin’ me?!” with shocking honesty … and a healthy dose of fun.

When she’s not out helping people chase their dreams, she’s chasing fun with her husband and two young superheroes (boys) in the Twin Cities (Minnesota). She's a voracious reader, globetrotter and fair-weather SCUBA diver. Oh, and by the way … she owns a zebra. His name is Joe.
