When Catherine Bosley started to get invites from shows like Good Morning America, Oprah and Inside Edition, she knew she had a story that would someday, somehow, be a “game-changer.” Today it’s exactly that, for so many!
A two-time Associated Press Award winning and Emmy nominated TV anchor and reporter, Catherine Bosley is putting her skills to work on a new level in her high-content, high-energy, interactive speaking events. She’s on a mission. It’s personal for her—eye-opening for others. Those who’ve heard her speak at the corporate level say her insight empowers them in a way they never expected. Those who’ve heard her speak to young people say she’s saving lives. Just about anyone who experiences her presentation and hears her personal story will tell you she inspires bravery.
Through her programs, consulting work and her latest book, FOREVER AND FOR ALL TO SEE: HOW TO AVOID A SOCIAL MEDIA SCANDAL AND HOW TO SURVIVE ONE, she brings a new mindfulness to better navigating and rising above in this ever-evolving digital reality we live in. “Now, more than ever every choice we make has unprecedented potential to determine the trajectory of our lives,” she explains in her popular TEDx Talk. That’s because so little of what we do, including our “what was I thinking” moments, is guaranteed to stay “in the moment,” but instead, could end up “forever and for all to see,” one mouse-click away. In a virtual split-second life as you know it—changed forever. Making us all even more vulnerable—the growing pressure to share everything (yes, EVERYTHING, ugh) we do and feel with the rest of the world.
Catherine knows about the risk, and how to rise above as well. After going viral herself, becoming Internet infamous, globally humiliated, she learned first-hand how the online or digital world can turn a real- life world upside down. She also learned the power of perseverance like never before and made a comeback that, today, serves as proof our new brand of humiliation, whether personal or professional, is survivable.
From high school and college students, to civic and charitable organizations, to corporate leadership, Catherine’s messages leave audiences with new know-how to protect themselves, those they care about, and their professional interests from social media, or online catastrophe.
