Praise for Professor Catherine A. Sanderson

“I work with notable college professors throughout the US and Canada; if there is a more powerful, fascinating, and engaging lecturer then Catherine Sanderson—well, I’ve never seen him or her. Her ability to connect with audiences and hold their attention is quite remarkable, and her mixture of humor, academic scholarship, and practical advice keeps them riveted from her opening welcome to her closing remarks.”
– Steven Schragis, Executive Director, One Day University

“Passionate, dynamic, engaging, Catherine Sanderson will change the way you think about happiness. With her ability to educate and entertain, audiences always leave well informed and—dare I say—happy.”
– Louis P. Masur, Distinguished Professor of American Studies and History, Rutgers University

“I have hosted dozens of world-renowned speakers over the years but it is safe to say that when it comes to delivery and engagement no one comes close to Catherine Sanderson. She lectures as if she were a stand-up comic, constantly surprising audiences and listeners by using anecdotes to illustrate the latest scientific discovery in her field. The result is an exhilarating tour that leaves you wiser and happier at the same time. Buckle up for the ride!”
– Anouar Majid, Director of the Center for Global Humanities and Professor of English, University of New England
