Kathy Gruver | Speaker, Author, Stress and Communication Expert
"I have had the privilege of working with many talented speakers in my career, and Kathy Gruver demonstrated a very raw and natural talent for public speaking that I very rarely come across. Kathy was super easy to work with, was attentive to detail and due dates, and incredibly easygoing when it came to the technical details of our conference. It was a true honor and privilege to have her on my TEDx stage, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a speaker that can truly deliver."
"Thank you for your presentation on Stress. Often these talks come from a theoretical perspective from speakers with no real, practical knowledge to impart. It was nice to be in the presence of someone who juggles life on all levels and actually practices what she preaches. In particular, I am thankful for your memorable stories that not only captivate the audience but make a lasting impact. I am still thinking about one of them on a regular basis. Thanks for sharing your passion and life experiences so that I can improve the quality of my life."

"Your talk truly inspired me! I have always been an individual who has been prone to stress. Oftentimes, this stress negatively impacts my wellbeing and affects those around me. My wife often suggested that I meditate in order to relax. As you stated in your talk, I thought it was impossible for me. (as I am also an individual who experiences rapid-fire thoughts and am constantly thinking of my long to-do list)
Your talk allowed me to realize that meditation IS possible for me. It also provided me with several other tools that I can utilize in order to adequately manage my stress. I feel that being your session was fate in some strange way, and it served to ultimately get on track towards becoming an individual who can manage stress instead of being encapsulated by it.
Thank you SO much for inspiring me to change the way I respond to stress! I feel as if I am now armed with all the necessary tools in order to live a calmer and more fulfilling life (without letting stress ruin my enjoyment of this journey).
